Planning for your conservatory

“We decided to take advantage of the permitted development rights that cover most properties. We felt it was a great space to place a dining room and change our existing dining room into a study for working from home. Our experience was positive, and we now have a beautiful extension to our home that is bathed in natural light.”

Listed here are some things to bear in mind when planning for your dream conservatory;

Option paralysis

There are many different options to choose from when considering your conservatory, make sure you have a vision in mind before beginning.

“When we started our conservatory, we began by looking to build one we had seen in a brochure. However, it soon became apparent when we contacted a specialist that there was so much more that could be offered for a conservatory aesthetic.

“Contemplating different materials, we ended up choosing an aluminium conservatory with bi-fold doors and a skypod from Elglaze – specialists in conservatories, windows, doors, and skypods. The chic, modern look suited our vision for the interior of the conservatory and has become the standout room in our home. Seeing a specialist enabled us to gain our dream conservatory and have the best possible options available to us.”

Get the garden area ready for building

“When we got our conservatory built, we didn’t prepare the garden area that was going to be built upon. Although this isn’t necessary and isn’t required by most companies, it soon became apparent that this would have been a simple way of saving money. Depending on the garden area, it can be a serious amount of work just to get it ready for building. The work that we made our skilled workmen undertake was work that we could have done over a couple of weekends. We could have saved money and prepared the area for the workmen to build upon swiftly, getting our conservatory finished quicker.”

Funding your conservatory

Everyone and their dog has a story about building work that snowballed into more than they considered.

“Having taken all this advice with a pinch of salt, we, unfortunately, had to eat a slice of humble pie. Unforeseen to us, our garden soil was not stable enough to be built upon and further foundations had to be laid down for the conservatory to be built. This delayed building for a couple of days and had our budget, and timeline pushed back. Always have contingency funding to fall back upon.”

Don’t forget home comforts!

“When we were building our conservatory, we got swept away with the structure and aesthetic and forgot simple home comforts. It is an extension of your home and we hadn’t considered electricity sockets and heating. Luckily the team at Elglaze had this covered when planning our conservatory.”

Planning effectively can help your conservatory build to progress smoothly. Seek out a specialist and utilise their expertise to create your vision and add a special room to your home. Elglaze is a perfect choice!
