Home improvements, when done right, undoubtedly effect and add value to your home. It is reported that a conservatory, orangery or glass extension can add up to 7% to your home’s value.
So how can building a conservatory positively impact your home value? We’ll explain it all in our latest blog post.
3 Ways A Conservatory Can Add Value to Your Home
A glass room extension is featured highly on people’s lists of things they look for when buying a house. However, as with any home improvement, you need to make sure it fits and suits your property. Otherwise, no real beneficial value will be added to your home.
1. A Complimentary Style & Good Design to Suit Your Property
It is important to make sure that when you add a conservatory to your property it suits and complements the current style of your house. An extension must blend with the style of the house, seeming almost as if it’s not in any way separate from the rest of your house.
When adding a conservatory to your home it is essential that you stick rigidly to the fundamentals of good design. This involves gaining appropriate expert advice when it comes to materials, aspect, location, flow, construction, ventilation. It also encompasses choosing the right type of glass; this is very much dependent on which way the room is going to face so that it remains usable all year round.
2. What Space Is Gained or Lost?
It is expected that when you add a conservatory to your home that you will lose some garden space but gain additional indoor living space.
If your conservatory is a certain size, you don’t need planning permission as the work carried out can be classed as under ‘permitted development’.
3. New Integration Into Your Home
A conservatory creates additional floor space, which can be used as an extension of your existing living space for open plan living, or as a separate room of its own. Above anything else, a new conservatory must feel like an integral part of the house and not just viewed as an ‘add-on’ that's stuck onto the back and doesn’t serve any real purpose.
With a conservatory, it should enhance the feel of your home by creating good space and floor. To achieve this, you can install the same flooring throughout your downstairs living area as this helps to create the feeling that it's fully integrated.
