In our latest post, we discuss the various things to think about before your conservatory is built to ensure you get the most from this extension to your home.
The Size of Your Conservatory
It can be difficult to imagine how big your conservatory will be just by marking out the points on the ground. However, using the size of an existing room in your home and scaling up or down to match your requirements will give you an idea of how much furniture you could fit into the room. You may also decide to use an existing room in your home to mark out the size of the proposed conservatory so you know how big it will feel once walls and windows are in place.
One of the many reasons people invest in a conservatory is to add more natural light into their home. In order to get the most from your conservatory, you’ll need to consider where the sunlight usually hits your home and at what time. With this information, you should be able to make the best choice when it comes to what kind of windows you will use and how you will plan the interior of the space. If the conservatory is south or west facing, it is advised to invest in solar control glass, allowing the space to benefit from light, but stay cool at the same time.
If you want to use your conservatory for quiet activities such as reading or yoga, you may want to consider limiting the amount of sound that can transfer through the windows. To limit noise, you could invest in laminated or acoustic laminated glass. These glasses also have the added benefit of reducing ultraviolet light transmission.
