Modern conservatories are a cost-efficient way to expand the space of a house and raise its market value. Essentially, conservatories create an additional, multipurpose room with many benefits. In houses where they open to a beautiful, well cared for garden, conservatories can raise the market value typically by four to five percent.
There are, of course, many more reasons why you should consider adding a conservatory to your house. First, as they are built with enclosed glass, they can create a feeling of spaciousness and allow natural light to flow inside, offering simultaneously a wide open view of the nature outside. In many cases, they can be designed to function as an extension of the garden into the main building and to form a sense of smooth continuity between the exterior and the interior. They also allow a continuous and unobstructed contact with the outdoors; even when the weather is cold and rainy, anyone can sit in a warm and cozy conservatory and enjoy their garden.
The room itself can be built using various techniques and can be designed to match the overall style of the house. Its size can also be adjusted so that it best suits the household’s needs; most common uses of the extra space in the house include a playroom, a dining area or an office. Typically no planning permission is required for any of the above uses, as conservatories are considered to be permitted development.
In most cases, conservatories are fitted with bi-fold doors to facilitate unimpeded views and easy access to the garden. These doors can offer a lot of advantages compared to conventional patio doors: they are very flexible and very easy to operate, folding in or out according to tastes. They can be fully, partially or totally opened maximising available space and flooding the house with natural light.
Bi-fold doors are insulated and manufactured so as to endure harsh weather conditions. Most units have excellent security features and are equipped with multi-point locking systems. Many manufacturers are able to offer bespoke door styles and can provide a wide range of different colours and finishes. Finally, depending on individual needs and tastes, doors can be glazed with either standard or toughened glass or double glazed for added insulation.
