Investing in a new conservatory with modern performance allows you to create a much-needed versatile living space, that you can enjoy with your family and friends every day of the year. It’s important to consider, however, how you will use this room to plan the most appropriate size and style of your conservatory extension before building work starts.
If you are thinking of getting a conservatory, but wondering what to do with it once built, this blog can help you to find inspiration and start making plans. Here, we put a list of five of the most common ways in which our customers decide to use their newly built conservatories.
As your family grows, so does the need to expand your home. A conservatory can give you the space you need for a new stylish modern living room. You can relax and enjoy peace and quiet in a bright and airy room. You can admire the views of your garden from the comfort of your conservatory, whatever the weather, and with the option of a glass roof, you can also gaze the stars on a clear evening.
If you are a family of movie fanatics or you enjoy binge-watching series on a weekend, you can add a TV unit and surround sound system to create your very own entertainment room, choosing a solar control glass roof with anti-glare properties or a solid tiled roof that will never impede your picture quality.
When your home isn’t big enough to accommodate a separate dining room, your new extension can be the perfect excuse to have one. Watching the sunrise while eating breakfast in your conservatory can be a great way to start your morning and plan the day ahead. Having a new beautiful dining room can be a reason to spend more time with your family, having more meals together.
Conservatories offering stunning views of the garden or surrounding countryside can make the perfect setting for dinner parties. Filled with plenty of light, a conservatory can certainly create a room that will impress your guests. What’s more, attaching your conservatory to your kitchen can create an open plan spacious kitchen and diner space. Or depending on the size of your extension, you may choose to have both a dining and living space incorporated in the same room.
If you have children, why not convert your conservatory into a games room? A conservatory games room creates a separate space, meaning your main living room can be kept for quiet relaxation, whilst the children can enjoy playing in a separate room, without having to keep the noise down.
A conservatory can allow for additional storage space for toys and games, to keep these out of eye view and ensure your house always looks tidy. With conservatories leading out into the garden, it also means your children can play both indoors and outdoors in the summer months, without you worrying that the kids will bring dirt all around the house.
A conservatory can also be the ideal place to put a pool table, table football, a dartboard or different game consoles, transforming your conservatory into a games room that can also be enjoyed by the grownups.
If you often work from home and you don’t have designated home office space, a conservatory is a great cost-effective alternative to building a brick extension. An Edwardian or gable front conservatory will provide you with spacious square floor space, allowing you to better fit all the office furniture you need.
When you decide to build a conservatory, using it as a bedroom isn’t the first option to pop to your mind, however, it is a practical way to make the most of this new space. You can choose to either transform your conservatory into a fully functional extra bedroom or just have a sofa bed, that can be used when needed.
