Before constructing a conservatory, everyone will have imagined what they would like to do with this new living space. Take the time to look at the feasibility of the project before launching into your new plans.
While it is lovely to prepare meals and eat looking out over the garden, setting up a kitchen in a conservatory is not so easily done. The conservatory is in fact a living space with a glass roof, and is therefore subject to the sun’s rays and bad weather. It is therefore not advisable to keep substantial electrical appliances there. On the other hand, it is possible to set up the conservatory as a dining room, as an extension of the kitchen.
Sleeping under the stars must remain a one-off pleasure. Designing the master bedroom in a conservatory would seem to be a bad idea. The space designed for sleep should be intimate and dark. However, the translucent roof and glass windows of a conservatory would let in an incredible amount of light. This would spoil the potential of this living space.
A conservatory made from aluminium, wood or wrought iron will transform into an amazing living room which can be used in all seasons. An awning could reduce ultraviolet rays in the summer, while it would be comfortable in the winter as long as there is an investment in insulation material for optimal thermal comfort.
