What Not to Do When Buying a Conservatory

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

Buying a conservatory is a serious decision that you have to keep an eye on even before you lay the first brick, insert the first pane of glass, or even make the first mark and so there is much to be avoided when building a conservatory.

For those of us looking to benefit from the wonders of one of these bright, light airy and wonderful buildings there is much to be considered. Fortunately, we've compiled a number of things for you to look out for before you begin.

Planning Get to grips with the planning laws that have to be considered when creating a new conservatory and make sure your new building will adhere to it. There are a number of ways in which a conservatory can fall inside and also fall outside the laws for planning permission. The lines of exemption can cause confusion in the UK, so ensure your home is following them and there will be no objections. Worst case scenario is that you will have to pay to take down your newly built, shiny conservatory - so make sure to fall within all regulations and follow planning.

Energy Efficiency Though, conservatories can add a lot of value to a home, it is always very important to make sure you are adding the very best you can afford in energy efficiency terms. Investing in the latest insulation, glass and other such technology will save you in both the long and the short term and is also good for the environment. Consider how the building is heated, the type of glass used and all the other properties involved in the building - after all it's about creating a new part of a home that takes advantage of all the current technologies to make a comfortable living area in both living and financial terms.

Architects You would be surprised at the number of people who have actually designed conservatories without professional advice and lived to regret it. Use an architect to ensure you get the very best in conservatory design and also efficiency. These people pay for themselves in design terms and allow you to make the very most of your home aesthetically, while including a very attractive new area.

Decor Of course the whole conservatory thing doesn't stop there. There is the necessary consideration of the decor to think of. If you have a good eye for detail and wish to have a beautiful conservatory, then go ahead and decorate it yourself.

When considering a new conservatory, have a think about how you want it to look, how you want to create the impression of room and also how much you wish to invest. Do not just add in what you find along the way without considering the space at hand. If you do this you will more than likely end up with a building that doesn't make use of its full potential.
