Are you pleased with your conservatory?
« on: February 17, 2016, 03:22:26 PM »
I'm considering adding a conservatory as an extra sitting space in my cramped house, but if I add one of these I'll have to sacrifice some much-loved garden space. For those of you who had to wrestle with the same dilemma, are you pleased with your conservatory, or do you ever regret chopping the garden up?

My last house had a conservatory and I absolutely loved it. The house I'm currently in doesn't have one, and although I like the extra garden space, I do miss the conservatory. It was absolutely lovely on the rare warm and sunny days!

I love mine in the summer, but in the winter I really wish I'd bitten the bullet and paid a little extra to make sure it was warmer! I think this is one of the biggest things to be affected by a larger budget on this sort of thing.

Hello!
I have a conservatory and I do like it. However, there are a few things that I'd like to tell you before you take steps to add this extension.
Conservatories are well know for their extreme temperatures. They can be extremely cold as well as hot during the seasons and you'd have to take few tips so as to avoid any kind issues.
A few tips here:
1. You have the option of either installing glass or polycarbonate frames for your conservatory. Glass would be a bit more elegant option as compared to the polycarbonate frames. However, the latter would be priced low and would also have a few benefits of being flexible and would not break easily. On the other hand, the glass frames would provide a better look overall and would also allow plenty of sunlight for their entire lifetime.

2. Take steps to make better ventilation for the structure. This would be good during the summers. Along with this having the celsius glass roofing would prevent up to 72% of the glare from the sun. You can find some information on this page.

3. During winter, the temperature would be too low and you may feel like being refrigerated for the entire time that you spend in a conservatory. You can add underfloor heating option to take of this.

There are a lot more tips but for now, this should be it. Hope it helps!
