Improve your home with a stylish conservatory

One of the best ways to enhance your home is to include a conservatory. Not only does this give you extra space but it can sometimes even increase the market value of your home when you come to sell. Historically conservatories have been underused as their temperature can be difficult to regulate but by including solar inserts this extra space can be functional all year round.

Gain extra room

One of the chief reasons to install a conservatory is that it provides you with extra space. Although traditionally they were used mainly for protecting and growing plants, these days a conservatory can be used as a playroom or office space or simply as extra seating when entertaining guests. The trend for larger open plan kitchens and living spaces means that conservatories are also often used as adjacent dining areas. Additionally, building a conservatory is generally a cheaper way to gain extra room compared to an attic conversion or conventional extension.

Add value

There are a number of alterations you can make to your home to increase how much it is worth. Creating an extra room in your home is usually a good way to add value to it, but can be costly. A good alternative is to use a little of your garden space to fit a conservatory, which can offer an estimated return of around 108%. In addition to being one of the alterations that are likely to cost less than it makes you when you come to sell your home, an attractive conservatory can be an appealing extra that can help to clinch a deal.

Year-round benefits

One of the chief concerns when debating whether to build a conservatory is how much use will you realistically get from it. It is no secret that many conservatories can be freezing cold in winter and uncomfortably hot in the summer. In order to maximize the amount of time that you can use your conservatory, it is essential to effectively regulate the temperature, which can be achieved when you purchase solar inserts through Polycool. Fitting these to the polycarbonate roof will prevent heat wastage in winter and reflect excessive solar glare throughout the summer.

Installing a conservatory in your home can not only add to its value but provide you with useful extra space.
