6 Ways to Bring Space and Light into Your Conservatory


It may sound metaphysical, but all rooms start out as space and light. Before they are labelled kitchens, bathrooms, lounges, bedrooms, cellars and conservatories and filled with the relevant accoutrements, all rooms are merely enclosed spaces with greater or lesser degrees of natural light. The conservatory is the room where you have the scope for the greatest amount of natural light. When you have one installed, consider how space and light will interplay in your new room.

1. Match the style of conservatory to the style of your home. Whether you have a period property or a modern house, we can find the right conservatory for you. We can also match any brickwork so your conservatory will seamlessly fit into your property. 

2. A floor to ceiling glass wall will maximise the amount of natural light coming into your conservatory. Alternatively, the lower half can be composed of a dwarf brick wall to reduce the amount of light entering the room. It’s up to you. Think about which would look better with your property.

3. Choose your finish. White uPVC is not the only option. We also offer real wood and wood effect finishes.

4. Install bi-fold doors. A bi-fold door leading from your house will open up extra space in your conservatory.

5. Orientation is important. Are you an early-riser or a night owl? Either way, observe where the sun rises and sets and think about where the light will be coming in and how you will make best use of it. Will you need blinds? 

6. Consider whether you want a roof of glass or polycarbonate. Both are wonderfully transparent, have insulative properties and are easy to clean. 

Thinking about how space and light will feature in your conservatory will help you to make the decision as to which type of conservatory you should choose and where on your property it will be of most benefit.
