Conservatories are an excellent way to extend the home. They provide a hassle free and fairly cost effective way of creating more space or an extra room. Due to its nature a conservatory is a very versatile part of the home and can be used for any number of purposes. The following are just a few ideas.
An Extension of the Garden
If you love the great outdoors, a conservatory is a great way to bring a little of that into the home. On warm days you can enjoy the conservatory with the french doors wide open and on cold days shut them and simply admire the outdoors from inside. Wicker furniture and large house plants in the conservatory make the garden room complete.
A Second Living Room
Everybody loves spending time with their family but sometimes it’s nice to get away for a little while. Using a conservatory as a second living room will give you somewhere to go. If you can find room for a TV and a comfortable chair in the conservatory you could avoid lots of arguments when people want to watch different things.
A Playroom for the Kids
It’s quite common for people to have conservatories purpose built just to create a space for children to play. It allows for the opportunity of playtime to spill out into the garden in the summer months and provides a light, airy environment all year round. Additional safety measures should be taken in this case though such as ensuring safety glass is used.
A Home Office
If you regularly work from home it’s important to create a space for yourself to be comfortable and productive in. Many people find that the airy, light nature of a conservatory is perfect to stay focussed during a work day.
A Game Room or Gym
Last but not least is to use a conservatory as a games room or even a gym. It can provide a nice big open space to house a pool table, just be careful nobody puts the rear end of a pool cue through the glass! It can also make a great space for a home gym, particularly if you are used to exercising outdoors but need an alternative for the winter months.
