Conservatories are a great way to upgrade your home because they bring your house and garden together. But one main issue is that they become outdated easily and unusable.
At Jewel, we understand there are many ways you can revamp your conservatory to make it more habitable for a family. One of the main things you must consider is if you want it to be an extension of your garden. An extension is versatile because it can be used for many different rooms. If you have a growing family, use it as a playroom or even an extra kitchen and dining area. Once you have decided how to use the room, it will help you decorate it accordingly.
When you have decided on what to use your room for, it is important to use double or triple glazing. By doing this, you will bring in natural light. Furthermore, your property will have outstanding heat retention because the glazing creates a polyamide thermal break, which keeps heat inside. Double glazing is a worthwhile investment because it makes your living space more habitable, ensuring you and your family want to spend time in it. You will also need to consider the conservatory’s shape because they are available in different styles, from Victorian to Edwardian and Lean to Conservatories. This will give you a better idea of how much space you need in your property.
Replacing your conservatory roof is another way of improving your living space. There are a plethora of benefits for you to consider. A new roof will ensure you can't hear raindrops or outside sounds. This makes it quieter than a glass roof and enhances your privacy. Getting the style of the conservatory right is crucial to the look of your home. You will get a choice of styles; for instance, a Traditional style is durable and doesn’t fade in the sunlight. Choose from beige and earthy colours.
In comparison, go for a more contemporary look in your home, which gives your home a modern feel. This will include more neutral colours that add a shine to them, creating an illusion of a larger living space. You can also experiment with other materials, such as wood, giving your conservatory a natural look.
Another important aspect of revamping your conservatory roof is to look at temperature fluctuation. Luckily, there are solutions that make your home cooler in the summer. For instance, installing blinds will help keep out the excess light you don’t need in your room. With many options to choose from, you are spoilt for choice. And save plenty of money on your energy bills as well.
If you want to bring an airy feel to your home, install lighter colours in your conservatory. While darker colours such as pine or walnut will hold heat in, shades such as pastel will make your room more refreshing in the long run. It will maximise your conservatory, adding more furniture and keeping the space cool. Additionally, you can benefit from ways to improve ventilation in your home. An easy way of doing this is by opening your doors and windows more. This will let cool air in on a hot day, giving you lots of air circulation.
Installing an extractor fan will help add a cold breeze to your conservatory. They won’t disrupt the flow of your space because they are almost silent. A heat recovery extractor fan is also ideal because you will retain 70-80% heat in the winter. This saves you plenty of money on your heating bills in the long run. Installing a skylight is also a good idea because it lets natural light into your home while giving you stunning skyline views. Add lights to turn your room into a social area, which is perfect for Friday night gatherings.
Adding air conditioning is a more expensive way to bring cool air into your warmer conservatory. However, it offers many benefits for you to consider. This is because you will open your living space to use for anything and make your space quieter.
