Thinking of installing a conservatory? Perhaps it’s been a dream for years, or maybe you’ve always worried whether it’s worth it; either way, it could be the best home improvement job you’ve ever taken on. Not only is a conservatory a stylish design feature, but it can also add value to your home, create a soothing ‘at-one-with-nature’ feel, add extra space and even improve your family’s health.
At New Look Windows in Leicester, we’re at the heart of an architecturally fascinating historical city and reflect this authenticity in our work as conservatory specialists. We see the benefits a conservatory can have for a home on a daily basis, so we’re always singing the praises of the humble British conservatory. Here are four reasons to install one in your home:
A well-built conservatory can increase the value of your home by at least 5% so, although installing one is relatively costly initially, a conservatory can actually make you money in the long-run. If you have a particularly pretty outlook or your garden is south-facing, a conservatory will make the most of these features and potential buyers won’t be able to resist making an offer.
But remember, a poorly built conservatory can reduce your home’s value. This includes installing a conservatory that isn’t in keeping with the style of your home; don’t go for an ultramodern frameless design if you live in a traditional Victorian terrace.
Probably the most appealing aspect of having a conservatory is the opportunity to be able to enjoy the outdoors, from indoors. With the UK’s changeable weather, having a warm space in the home where you can still gaze out over the garden is desirable.
Equally, in the summertime, a conservatory makes for a lovely throughway. With french doors opening onto the garden, you and family can while away the summer evenings effortlessly floating between indoors and outdoors.
Believe it or not, installing a conservatory can actually benefit your mental and physical health. A conservatory makes for a very relaxing area to unwind after a long day. Get lost in a book or invite a friend over for a catch-up, away from the rest of the house. Meanwhile, soaking up all that natural light will lift your mood.
Exposure to natural light also levels out our circadian rhythms - otherwise known as our body clocks - so the more time we spend absorbing sunlight, even through windows, the longer and better sleep we get at night.
With a conservatory, the space is your oyster. When choosing what to use your conservatory for, be as imaginative as you want. The most popular options are a dining room, second living area, kitchen extension or children’s playroom. However, if you think outside the box, you could transform your conservatory into a utility room, plant room, study space or it could even house a luxurious indoor swimming pool.
