Adding a conservatory to your home is a brilliant way to get the extra space you need. Today’s conservatories are a world away from the plastic boxes of twenty years ago. Technology and design have made them an art in their own right. Their footprint is quite light, so there is no need for expensive foundations. They are quick to put up. They also benefit from the fact that you do not usually need planning permission.Though it might be sensible to let the neighbours know what you are up to. Best of all is the fact that a conservatory or orangerie can be a room for all uses and seasons.

All that light and space has the effect of inviting the green of your garden into your home. Sitting in the conservatory can give you a lovely sense of peace, quiet and allow you feel more a part of nature. Imagine sitting there on a summer’s morning with the doors open to the sunshine and flowers. Then again, you can grow exotic plants in a conservatory.

Kitchen and Lounge extension.
Some people choose to make the conservatory a thriving and functioning part of their house. It is not difficult to open up walls to allow you to extend your living area. There is nothing to say that you can’t move your kitchen appliances into the space you have created. With all the extra light it will feel a surreal experience. You could imagine you were cooking outdoors. Equally, your conservatory could well become a sumptuous dining area. Imagine the dinner parties you could enjoy. Any space you can add to a house is going to be a home improvement worth doing. Extending your lounge for example into the conservatory could double the room you have available.
