How to add value to your home this summer with a Conservatory

With summer upon us, we are officially over halfway through the year, this may well be spurring you into making that addition to your homes that you have been putting off. A well-designed conservatory is becoming much more popular.

They are great in the summer as they act as a good bridge between your garden and your home. Here is how a conservatory and some other home improvements could seriously add to the value of your home this summer.

Convert your Loft or Garage 

This step is great however it does require that you have the pre-requisites in place for it. If your garage is easily accessible from within your home they can make excellent downstairs bedrooms. Adding a conservatory with a converted garage adds a surprisingly large amount of living area to your home. 

Build that Conservatory you’ve been putting off 

A conservatory is by far the most popular option when it comes to home improvements. They create fab living/dining rooms and are usually a viable option in most homes with adequate gardens.

There are a surprisingly large number of ways you can design your conservatory. If you select French or bifold doors they can be used to create good ventilation. Another interesting design technique often adopted is the heavy use of sliding doors. This can create a seamless transition between your garden and your conservatory. 

Extend your Kitchen with a Conservatory 

Believe it or not many homeowners choose to extend their kitchen through an adjacent conservatory. This creates a light kitchen that is pleasant to spend time in. This is perfect if you’re a family that spends a lot of time in the heart of the home. 

Secure some planning permission if you are selling 

This is a good idea if you are looking to sell fairly soon. Essentially you can apply and get planning permission for a variety of extensions; however, you do not have to carry out any construction work. Selling your home with planning permission for a conservatory will instantly get you a better price. 

Get Advice from Experts in the Field

This is a step that is easy to overlook if you are ready to jump head first into your home improvements, but you should always make sure you get advice on any of your projects. Finding an expert conservatory installer to get advice from will help you figure out if you are on the right track.
