The addition of a conservatory is usually a more cost-effective solution than moving house. Also, conservatories enable us to make the most of the garden whether it is raining or not, so it is easy to understand their popularity. At Cosyhomes Windows our conservatories Surrey team take your measurements, then design and build a conservatory tailored to suit you.

What Can A Conservatory Be Used For?

Many of us long for a little extra space at home but are reluctant or unable to splash out on a full extension. The addition of a conservatory, however, comes as a welcome halfway house, offering a versatile space at an affordable price.

Nowadays, a growing trend is to have larger, more open-planned living spaces in our homes. For example, our kitchen is no longer just somewhere we cook, but it may include the dining area or even a second living room, becoming a place to gather and socialise. This has also had an impact on the way conservatories are used and how they are attached to the home. Having a single door access may be inadequate as it can make the conservatory feel like a separate room that has just been added onto the back of the property, whereas opening up the entire back of the house can enlarge the entire living space by bringing the outside in. Although planning regulations would apply, it is certainly something to consider with the way we now live.

There are a wide variety of ways that a conservatory can be used – here are our top 5 ideas on how you can utilise one for your home:

1. An Extra sitting room – The addition of a second sitting room is something that many of us dream of. Whether we are looking for a comfortable space to read away from the television or simply want a way out of the stylistic compromises that come with a lack of space, using a conservatory as an extra sitting room can be hugely beneficial.

2. A Dining room – If you are keen to make more out of your meal times, why not create a room exclusively for dining? There is nothing better than sitting down to meals with a clear view over your own garden. A conservatory come dining room is also perfect for dinner parties!

3. Growing Plants – Most of us make an effort to incorporate a bit of greenery into our homes. However, restrictions on space and light can make it difficult to find a place for your plants. A conservatory is a perfect environment for plants to thrive in.

4. A Kitchen extension – The kitchen has become a more integral part of the home’s living space of late, as we use it as a place not only to cook and prepare food but increasingly as one in which to entertain. Few kitchens can offer sufficient room for seating, but an extension into your conservatory may well be the solution to your problem. As well as increasing the space available to you, this is also a great way of bringing more light into your kitchen and generally making it a nicer place to be.

5. What about a Gym – The bright space of a conservatory can work well as a motivational tool to get your muscles pumping without feeling self-conscious, not to mention the savings you can make by not having to pay those costly membership fees!
