While the addition of a conservatory can be an effective way to increase the amount of space homeowners have in their property, the design of such a home improvement project needs to be considered carefully, it has been suggested.
Indeed, Jason Orme, editor of Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine, claims such an extension can often be too cold during the winter months and too hot in summer.
And with the summer in mid-flow, those looking to stop their conservatory from overheating may be interested in his advice that blinds and air conditioning systems can be helpful in achieving this.
Mr Orme goes on to state that underfloor heating and spot heaters can prevent the room from becoming unbearably cold in the winter, DIY enthusiasts may be interested to hear.
Those looking to add a conservatory should also consider whether or not they will need planning permission before starting work on the home improvement project.
Doing so could be could be particularly advised as recent Ratedpeople.com research showed that a conservatory can increase a property’s value by five per cent.
