Conservatories can brighten up any home and improve the health of those who live there. Start planning your next luxury design project today.
The sunshine is finally here, but it’s been a long time coming this year, so it’s essential that you make the most of the good weather while it lasts. Getting the right balance of sunshine can do wonders for your mood and is known to encourage the body’s release of serotonin, a natural booster. One great way to enjoy extra sunshine from the comfort of your own home is to add a luxury conservatory extension. Here are some of the ways it will benefit both you and your property.
Lift A Dark Home
If your home suffers from dark spots which need some well-placed lamps to brighten things up, then a conservatory could be just what you need to flood the house with natural light. This will transform your interior design and will give your entire décor a real lift. How much light you decide to let in, is entirely up to you, depending on whether you have a glass roof on your extension and how much of the exterior you dedicate to windows or walls.
Improving Circulation Of Air
As well as letting in the light, a conservatory also encourages better circulation around your home. The air in any building can become quite stagnant if it is not allowed to move around adequately. A conservatory bridges the gap between interior and exterior and encourages the doors to be open to your garden. By doing so, you’ll allow plenty of fresh air to flow into your home, which will do wonders for your health. Of course, the type of conservatory you choose to build plays a part in how much air can circulate. You might opt to simply open a French door onto the patio, or go the whole hog and install bi-fold doors to fully open out your wall space; either way though your home will still benefit.
Choosing A Purpose For Your Conservatory
When you add extra living space onto your property, one of the biggest considerations you’ll face is working out what the function of your conservatory is to be. Some have it as a natural extension to the kitchen, decking it out as a fantastic dining or breakfast room, so that the entire family can enjoy looking out over the garden as they spend long meals together. Others prefer to use their conservatory as a family room with a play area for the kids, or even just as a lazy sun room, to kick back and enjoy the added warmth that the conservatory provides.
Enjoying Your Conservatory All Year Round
Of course, to extend the summer months as late into autumn as possible, you’ll want to make sure that your conservatory has been built to last. Luxury conservatories include various special features such as lantern roofs, and blackout blinds that ensure the room is habitable whether you’re experiencing a heatwave or snowfall outside.
A typical conservatory extension takes around 3 to 4 weeks, with larger projects lasting as long as 6 weeks. So, if you’re looking to enjoy a summer conservatory extension this year, now would be a great time to make some calls and get cracking on this fantastic luxury project.
