A conservatory is a wonderful way to add more space to your home. It can extend out into the garden, connecting indoors and outside. Sadly many people only get to really enjoy them in the summer. When autumn and winter comes it can get too cold and dark to use them anymore. This does not have to be the case though. A good design can make a space you can use all year. As a top designer of bespoke conservatories, we can help with that.
What to think about
If you do want a conservatory you can use all year, there are a few things you need to consider. They can help to shape your design and the space.
The position of your conservatory will affect how and when it is in sunlight. South facing is generally the best option because it will get sun for more of the day and get warmer throughout. However, in hot summer months you may need to think about extra ventilation to keep it from overheating.
The right walls
A certain percentage of the walls of a conservatory must be glass. However, you have control over the framework and use of dwarf walls. Timber is a good option for the frame because it can retain heat really well. You can also insulate any brickwork to help with heat regulation.
A lot of the heat will escape through the roof of your conservatory. You should choose the right design with insulation to help make the space comfortable. If you add vents it can also make the room nicer in hot summer months.
Doors and windows
Choosing windows that open and the right doors can make your conservatory useful all year round. Again they can provide ventilation when it is very hot. At the same time you want good glazing to provide insulation and the right seals.
