Conservatories Designed for You
Springs first bloom..... Balmy summer evenings with family & friends.... Autumns golden colours..... and perhaps the magic of snow on Christmas Day. This could be possible all within the serenity & comfort of your own personal surroundings and be the first thought towards extending your home space with a PVCu conservatory. Every style or type is not compromised by strength, maintenance & insulation in fact these factors are essential criteria for design and can reflect a continuity of a more traditional appearance if preferred.
Unlike other rooms in our homes, there's no set use for a conservatory, so you can create a room that is as flexible as you need. In many cases the conservatory can provide an extra sitting room, extension to a kitchen* or diner, a home office space a kids den. More exotic choices can include gym, spa or swimming pool areas. *In England & Wales, Building Regulations will apply if the enclosure contains sanitary or drainage facilities – this would prevail if part or all of the conservatory is being used as a kitchen.
The ‘Orangery’ concept is not a new one, but utilises the more traditional building format of a house by introducing a large proportion of translucent glazing area. Again, this type is also termed as a ‘bespoke’ project as it can generally involve several intrigue details.
There’s a wide range of conservatory types available to give you total flexibility. Listed below are the standard named designs. Discussing your options with your installer / designer, the best suited style can be achieved to compliment your property and its construction.
Check whether or not Planning Permission is required (in most cases it isn't, but there has been some recent changes and it is worth checking at the initial stages). If Planning Permission is necessary you must submit the appropriate forms to your local council before they can grant permission. In certain circumstances you may need to apply for Building Regulation approval. However, this is not required on the majority of domestic conservatories.
By choosing the correct site position based upon wall / ground area available & means of access / entrance into your conservatory the standard types may not accommodate for the purpose / visual effect that you are trying to achieve. Therefore, a ‘Bespoke’ alternative is probable – which in simple terms means that the design will be individual & incorporate aspects / functions that you desire.
