There are many reasons as to why an individual would consider investing in building a conservatory. These reasons range from the addition of living space, the requirement to alter the appearance and profile of a property to the incentive of adding value.
As with any other large investment, it is important that you spend time planning and considering any issues, limitations or requirements that may dictate the construction or eventual usage. A design is needed that will allow you the benefit of the extra room, however, does not overpower the existing building or garden space.
A good idea when implementing planning is to mark out the anticipated space as this allows you to see exactly how it will impact on its surroundings. This allows you to make alterations to dimensions, sizing and design prior to making any financial commitments.
Consider the position of your building with regards to the aspect. If your conservatory is south-facing you will be required to consider additional ventilation, blinds or even a different roof design. A south-facing extension will receive more direct sunlight so to enable the potential of maximum usage, all options will need to be carefully considered.
Conservatory roof options have advanced and offer solutions to overheating and even heat loss. Options available include plastic roofing, active blue glass or even SuperLite alternatives. There are many style options including Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and each will have tailored design elements that will suit your requirements.
Once this decision has been made other details such as glazing types, glazing patterns, trim colours, materials and decorative aspects can be considered. It is so often the case that individuals feel as though conservatory designs and styles dictate their options and this is certainly not the case. Building this type of extension provides an opportunity to create a truly unique space that suits your individual family’s living requirements and preferences.
Planning permission is not always needed, however, it is always recommended that you approach your local authority in order to check. This leads seamlessly onto the fact that time is required in order to achieve the best possible result. Time taken will provide a superior finish and outcome as rushing any part of the process may cause unnecessary problems that could have been avoided.
