Home Improvements & Conservatories

Why Do Conservatories Make The Best Home Improvements?

According to housetohome, 26% of us make changes to our property several times a year and one in four of us dream of having a conservatory.


Conservatories in the UK have become increasingly popular over the years, with many of us opting to extend our properties rather than move altogether.

Whether its the lure of inexpensive extensions or the current property market, one thing is clear: we like to keep up with the Joneses.

Could it be neighbourly competition that is fueling our love for home improvements & conservatories?

So if you are planning on getting a conservatory, don’t be surprised if your neighbours wander over to take a peek!

As uPVC conservatories in the UK become ever more fashionable, we will most certainly see a rise in home improvements alongside their growth in design and technology.

Conservatory Village looks at the benefits of today’s modern conservatory and why they are so highly sought after.

Beautiful Looks

Conservatories make stunning home improvements and look just as beautiful in real life, as they do in those glossy brochures and magazines.

As well as being a luxurious home improvement, conservatories are extremely versatile so it’s no wonder why so many people choose to extend their living spaces with a modern conservatory.

Conservatories in the UK can be found in a comprehensive range of styles for your home. If you have a larger property then perhaps it is capable of housing a big and bold traditional conservatory, or maybe you have a country-style home that needs some love and authenticity.

Whatever your conservatory style needs, you can be confident that they can be met with an impressive range of conservatory designs.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency isn’t something always associated with a conservatory due to its sometimes awkward climate during the winter and summer. Too cold to use in the winter and too hot to use in the summer – sound familiar?

Well…technically this is no longer true.

Increase Value

conservatories ukNot only will a conservatory give a versatile space to sit, relax and socialise but if you are looking to improve the value and saleability of your property, then a conservatory is golden.

This is because conservatories are a relatively easy way to immediately add value to your home. A full blown extension can be very costly and a conservatory gives you the same extra space but at a cheaper cost.

High Return On Investment

Typically, conservatories are known for their high return on investment.

Daniel Peacock (a property renovator) in his blog says that according to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, adding a conservatory can increase the value of your property by up to 5%.

This suggests that a new conservatory is pretty much guaranteed to pay for itself.

Conservatories Give You More Space

Conservatories allow you to add extra space to your home at a fraction of a cost of a full blown extension and they look great! Aesthetically, they add lots of value.
