Conservatories are becoming more and more popular, as people are looking to either expand their home or just get an extra room added to their house… albeit a room with a greater than normal amount of natural light.
They are much cheaper than some other property projects you might be considering, and are a more than worthwhile investment. What most people don’t realise, however, is just how versatile they can be, so here are some of our favourite uses for a conservatory.
● For Extra Space
This is the most obvious one, and for good reason. Adding a conservatory to your property will be significantly cheaper than building a full blown extension, yet it still adds quite a decent amount to your home’s value.
Whether you need the extra room for the kids to mess around in, you’ve run out of space to store things or you just want to make your dining area larger, a conservatory is the perfect solution.
● For Business Space
A conservatory can also be good if you run a business from home; for example, the warm, sun-filled room would be perfect for something like massage or physiotherapy.
Another possible use, in a business sense, would be to use it like a reception – the clean and bright environment works well to make your clients feel welcome in your home.
● As a Games Room
Because the conservatory will be an entirely new room with a large amount of free space, there will be enough room for larger pieces of equipment, such as a pool table, or a table tennis table.
Due to the extra room, you should be able to keep the table out, meaning it’s a lot more practical than repeatedly having to pack it away and put it in storage, waiting there until it’s wanted.
● As a Media Room
A conservatory can be a great extra space for setting up a glorious home cinema, by using a projector to beam high definition video onto the wall in a big way! Connect it to a DVD player or a games console for the ultimate in immersion.
Or use it as a music room instead. Think about sound proofing the conservatory, then set up some massive speakers, or make music with an electric guitar and some amps. There’s even enough room in there for a drum kit!
● As a Dining Room
Conservatories are great as dining rooms that the whole family can enjoy, no matter what time of year it is. In summer, the lot of you can eat dinner while the sun sets just outside the windows, whereas in winter you have the option of dining under the stars.
All you need is a bit of furniture [like the collection at 2furnish] and hey presto! – instant dining room. Beautiful!
As you can see, there are a whole host of uses for a conservatory – this is only a small selection of the complete range! Whatever you want to do, a conservatory will likely be able to do it.
