Conservatory Association

Conservatories are a home extension fit for all occasions

You need to feel comfortable with your choice of conservatory

Buying a conservatory is something which shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is crucially important that you choose the right style of conservatory for your home in order to gain the most benefit and get your money’s worth. Once you fully understand all the necessary implications involved in purchasing and installing a conservatory, we are sure you will conclude that it makes sense to rely on the expertise and advice of a GGF member.  

The positioning of the conservatory needs to be considered carefully as you will want to be sure that it offers you the maximum amount of natural sunlight. Your conservatory should give you the very best possible view of your garden so that you can sit back and relax in luxury safely under cover whilst looking on at it.

Some homes will also require planning permission before going ahead with the installation of a conservatory, as to ignore such possible obligations may result in you being ordered to take the conservatory down at a later date. If this were to happen as you can imagine it would be a huge waste of time, money and effort.

Any style of conservatory should provide you with the upmost comfort. Make a firm decision beforehand as to how you intend on utilising the conservatory as this will have an impact on how the interior of the conservatory is arranged. Soft furnishings and carpeting can give the conservatory the same sort of atmosphere that a traditional living room provides, while tiled flooring and patio-type furniture can help you bring the outdoors, indoors.

The composition of the conservatory needs to be carefully thought out as you want to be able to use it all year round. A good conservatory should neither get too cold in winter, or too warm in summer. There are many different heating solutions available to prevent this from happening such as adding underfloor heating or installing a separate heater.

You shouldn’t have to make such decisions on your own and you don’t have to. A GGF member is there to help make the whole decision-making process that little bit easier.
