Conservatories aren’t quite as popular as they used to be. If you were around in the 1970-80s, you would see them everywhere, but these days, people are making different choices – decking or outdoor garden pods, for example.
But the fact is that there are plenty of advantages of building a conservatory, and we’re going to take a look at them right now. Read on to find out more!

The light fantastic
Conservatories are a great way to open up a dark home to more natural light. It also means you can enjoy the brighter evenings as the spring and summer come around. Make sure you choose a design that uses as much glass as possible for the best effect.
The inside outside
Your conservatory will act as a bridge from the inside of your home to the outside, and many architects and designers will try hard to create an attractive flow from your garden into your home. Invest in some lightweight rattan garden furniture, and you can move it in or out with no problem at all, meaning you can enjoy your garden whatever the weather.
Homebuyers tend to love houses with a conservatory – and they are prepared to pay for it, too. In fact, a beautiful, well-designed conservatory can increase your home’s value by as much as 7 percent. If you are thinking of selling up in the next few years, there aren’t many other rooms in your house that will get you close to that return – so it’s an investment worth making!
The extra space
Struggling for space when you invite guests over for special events or dinner parties? A conservatory is a perfect solution. Anyone who lives in a home that feels a little tight when they have guests over should consider the additional room offered by a conservatory.
The room with a view
There are some incredible examples of innovative uses of conservatories these days. You aren’t restricted by anything, and you can use it as an extra room – whether a bedroom, study, gym, or just a place to relax. Many people choose to turn their conservatory into a dining area, so they can enjoy eating under the stars every single night.
The modern twist
There is an enormous range of conservatory types out there at the moment, and whether you want to choose the traditional Victorian and Edwardian design or the lean-to option is up to you. However, if you want to make a splash, consider some of the more contemporary conservatory designs. Some of them are remarkable and can add a truly modern twist to any home, in any style.
The fast construction
Renovate your home and create a spare room and you can be living on a building site for months. Get a conservatory, however, and everything should be complete and ready within a few weeks. Most conservatory builders will get the job done in something like 4-6 weeks, so it is a superfast way of adding an extra room – and can cost considerably less investment, too.
