Although summers in the UK are fairly hot, when evening comes around, it can become a little chilly. To overcome this, a conservatory comes into its own. You can still feel as though you are outdoors except with the added bonus of being warm and cosy. If you have the space, think about having a beautiful conservatory installed just in time for the summer.
Conservatories are the perfect place to entertain family or friends and certainly a lovely room to relax in. They add space to your home, increase the value of your property as well as being somewhere to go if you want some “me” time. Here are some more reasons to have a conservatory built in time for summer:-
- They are adaptable – Conservatories are quite adaptable in that they can be used at any time of the year. During the cold winter months, a conservatory is the ideal place to snuggle up in a favourite armchair with a book. Conservatories don’t take much heating up, so the temperature will be warm no matter what time of year it is. In the summer, open the doors, let the sun in and watch the wildlife in your garden. What could be better?
- Your home will have an extra room – A conservatory can also be used as a dining room which will free up your present dining area. It could be a room where your children entertain friends or if they are quite young, transform it into a wonderful, light and airy playroom. With so many variations on what a conservatory could be used for, you’ll probably wonder why you haven’t had one installed before.
- Bring the outside indoors – For people who are keen gardeners, there’s nothing quite like sitting in a conservatory watching your plants, trees and bushes flourish. With its many windows and glass roof, a conservatory definitely has a great feel to it. Enjoy the weather too whether it’s sunny, raining or snowing. You know you will always be warm in a conservatory whatever the weather outside.
- Blinds or no blinds? – It’s a personal choice whether to have blinds at the windows or on the ceiling of a conservatory. Window blinds tend to make a conservatory feel warmer when it’s cold outside and protect furnishings if the sunlight is too bright during the summer. Whichever window coverings you choose, blinds are quite easy to fit and the option is always there to open them if you prefer.
To sum up
Having a stunning conservatory installed in your home in time for summer is a great idea. Use it as a second sitting room, a place to relax in, a study or even a breakfast room. The list is endless.
