What Your Conservatory Says About You
20th July, 2016
These days, many of us live in houses that, while cosy and perfectly suited to their job, don’t come with much character. New builds are more energy and space efficient than ever, but if you don’t put your own stamp on them, they can end up feeling a bit like a showroom for the rest of the time you live there. Luckily, with a variety of extension options out there, customising your home to suit your needs has never been easier. Here are a few things to bear in mind when browsing for your new conservatory.
Traditional or Modern?
You may be surprised at how much the style of your conservatory can be customised to your preferences. By choosing styles with decorative Edwardian or Victorian touches, such as intricate finials and cresting, you can tie the conservatory in with the period feel of the rest of your home, whether your home is period or not! If you prefer more modern, minimal or natural looks, a simple structure with clean lines may suit you better. There are also options for choosing natural wood stains to create a rustic vibe.
Sizing it Up
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that the size of your conservatory will depend on the size of your house and garden. It is also worth bearing in mind, however, how your household will use the conservatory. While you may have a spacious garden which could easily accommodate a large conservatory, if your main reason for having one is to create a cosy nook for reading in, you may prefer something a little smaller. Those looking to create more dining space for their growing family, however, may gladly take up a little more of the garden in exchange for a dinnertime that isn’t cramped.
