How To Choose The Most Suitable Conservatory

by | Jun 24, 2013 | Doors & Windows

The decision to build a conservatory usually involves a once in a lifetime financial outlay. It is therefore imperative that we choose a conservatory that best suits our needs and requirements. This can be in relation to style, size, design, function and compatibility. All of these issues need to be considered at the decision stage of the process. To get the best conservatory for our situation we need to tick as many of these boxes as possible.

Why do you want a conservatory?

What will be its immediate function? Will it be an extension to the dining room, a study; or an area for fun and games? By identifying exactly what we want to use the conservatory for, we can then decide what type of conservatory will best suit our requirements. For example, Edwardian-style conservatories tend to be spacious and provide adequate space for a variety of uses.

What is included in the price?

We need to identify and understand exactly what is included in the price. We should ensure that a detailed design is drawn up and that all extra requirements and specifications are included in the design and therefore included in the price of the build. It is not recommended that you automatically choose the cheapest option. It is also not advisable to choose the most expensive, for obvious reasons. There are a large number of glaziers specialising in conservatories in St Ives. They will be more than willing to assist you with all aspects of the build.

Size and position

Both of these things need to be considered and are closely linked to the intended functionality of the conservatory. With regards to size, we should choose one which is big enough for the intended use but not so big that it looks out of place next to our current property. We must think about what furniture we plan to place inside the conservatory and adjust the size of the design accordingly.

The position of the conservatory is also very important. For south-facing conservatories it is imperative that we consider incorporating adequate ventilation into the design as they will be in direct sunlight for a longer period of time than it north-facing counterpart. In relation to this aspect we should think about blinds, or curtains to block out the sunlight should the need arise.

Remember to choose a reputable company to assist you. Your choice of glazier should be thoroughly researched and considered. They should be suitably certified, have a good track record and should act in the correct manner at all times. Your conservatory must be professionally designed and implemented and it is advisable that you make sure the glazier offers a guarantee on all the work that they undertake.
