Building a conservatory

If you’ve been thinking about adding an extension to your home, Building a conservatory is a clever way to add more living space without having to move to a larger home.

One of the benefits of building a conservatory is the potential to add a lot of value to your home. Hiring an architect will help you to have an elegant, sophisticated and warm conservatory.

So what are the benefits of building a conservatory?

Adding living space to your home

One of the benefits of building a conservatory is the extra living space that both you and your family can enjoy.

The conservatory can double as a breakfast room, dining room, home office, sun room if you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (more on that later) or almost any other purpose.


Adding value to your property

A well-built and elegant conservatory is certain to add value to your property.  It’s important to obtain any necessary consents and hire professional architects and builders but you can expect to recoup your costs if you resell your home and in the meantime you get to enjoy a sunny warm room all year round.


Getting natural light

There are many health advantages to having somewhere you can sit and enjoy natural light while remaining indoors. If you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) this is particularly important.

The best treatment for people suffering from SAD is light therapy. While you can buy products that give off light, nothing can replace sunlight.

It’s not practical to buy light boxes or head to Hawaii every time winter hits New Zealand! That makes a conservatory your best bet.

Growing an indoor garden

A conservatory is a lovely place to keep plants during the winter when the weather gets too cold outside.

If you want fresh herbs, flowers and veggies throughout the year you can keep them housed in your conservatory.

These are just 3 of the many benefits of building a conservatory. Before making a conversion or addition to your home, consult a team of experts in design and architecture services.

Whether it be a cosy retreat in the winter or a cool haven in the summer, your conservatory can change the way you use your home.  Consult experts about what design options are suitable for your home. With the right doors and windows your conservatory will make an individual statement to all those who are lucky enough to use it.
