Do you ever feel like your home is cramped and too small? An addition could be something that will help you open the space up and make you feel like you have room to breathe. A conservatory is the perfect way to do this and with all the light and windows, it can make your home feel much lighter and spacious.
What is a Conservatory?
A conservatory is a room that has glass throughout. It will have a glass roof, walls, etc. and usually extends from the side of your house. The space may be large or small, depending on your needs. It may also be closed off from the rest of the home so it is a separate room, or it could open off another room of the house, such as the living room, to expand it.
Choosing the Conservatory for Your Home
What size and style do you want? This is partially personal taste and partially what your home looks like. You’ll want the conservatory to blend with the existing features of the house, so look for a design that will fit in with your existing style of home.
When it comes to size, you want enough space to make your home feel larger, but you may not have a lot of room to expand into the garden. There’s also the matter of permits and local regulations, so it’s important to check these before you build.
Simple Ways to Make Use of Your Conservatory
What will you do with a conservatory? There are so many options to this. It can simply be another part of your living space and an area to entertain friends and family or hold your family game nights. You may also choose to use it as a completely separate area of the home, such as a studio or home office. This can add more functionality to your home.
Set up a nice area to sit and you’ll find that even on rainy and foggy days, you will spend more time in the conservatory, enjoying your garden. With so many windows, it’s a good way to get in your “outdoor” time even when the outdoors isn’t that inviting. Plant plenty of greenery outside the conservatory and be sure to include plenty of plants indoors to really give the feel of living outside.
