Choosing your conservatory

Deciding which style of conservatory is right for you is fun – but here are some key things to consider. Use our tips to help get everything just right …

1. Use

What do you hope to get out of your new room? Will it be a study perhaps? Or a playroom? An office? Or maybe just an extra space to relax in. Whatever you choose, the use will determine how large you need your new space to be, and which layout will suit best.

2. Materials

Your new space should fit seamlessly with your lifestyle. PVCu is both incredibly hardwearing and low maintenance. No need for step ladders and re-painting; oil on the hinges and a wipe down every now and again will keep your conservatory looking like new.

3. Positioning

Think about the position of your conservatory. Those that face the South will receive the most amount of sun during the day. If this is the case, you may need to consider extra ventilation and blinds.

4. Size

Once you’ve made a decision on your design, it might be best to check the dimensions of both your house and your garden. A conservatory should be an extension of your current living space and shouldn’t take up too much valuable garden space.

5. Glazing (See our glass options for further details)

New advancements have been made to ensure the glass used in conservatories works its hardest for the homeowner. Keeping you cooler in summer and warmer in winter means a conservatory isn’t just a seasonal room.

6. Planning permission

If you’re building a conservatory in England or Wales, you will not usually need planning permission. However, it is always better to be safe than sorry. If you are in any doubt always check as early as you can with your local council.
