Factors to consider when purchasing a conservatory

Every year when January rolls around, homeowners begin to consider how they can make changes to their property. The purpose of this could be to simply add value to the property or to enhance it in terms of comfort, style and living space. Whilst the economy is slowly on the up, knowing where and how to invest money when it comes to home improvements can still be a tricky decision to make and will require careful consideration.

We previously spoke about things to consider when purchasing a conservatory in this post and so thought it would be useful to do a follow up article from a cost and style perspective.

Adding value to your property

Conservatories are not only an excellent way to add value to a property, but they are great for adding living space without the heavy expenses of building a traditional extension. Most extensions can cost anywhere between £20,000 and £30,000, whereas a conservatory on average costs around £10,000 – £15,000.

Here at Unicorn Windows, we pride ourselves on our expertly designed conservatories and the construction of one will serve two main benefits: to add value to your home and provide you with a new versatile, stylish and comfortable living space. You won’t need to worry about your conservatory being too hot, cold or noisy either as we use the most cutting edge designs and high quality, modern materials to ensure year round consistency in all of these areas. We incorporate UPVC and glazing technology in our conservatory offerings, including energy efficient and effective glazing, UPVC frames, security features and aesthetically appealing structures.

Your preferred style for a conservatory

Before you commit to choosing a conservatory, you first need to think about what style you are after, the amount of space at your disposal and your budget. Many people like to opt for a classic conservatory design, but make sure you’re aware of all the styles, designs, colours and materials available because it’s important to purchase something unique which complements the character of your home whilst also maximising the space. We also have a fantastic selection of orangeries here at Unicorn Windows, which is another option you might want to explore.

What will the space be for?

It’s also important to have a think about how you want to use the space that the conservatory will provide, since this will influence the design you go for. Perhaps you intend to utilise it as a second living room, an area for entertaining, an extension for your kitchen, an office, a room for relaxation, a dining area or an extension of your living room? Ultimately, it should completely enhance your living space whilst also adding value to your home.

We can help you make all of these important decisions at Unicorn Windows, so make sure you take a look at some of the conservatories that we can design and install for you. In addition to this, we also have a service where we can refurbish your existing conservatory if you already have one.
