Despite over 3 million conservatories already installed in the UK, homeowners no longer have the same sense of pride in their dated, glazed extensions. Typically, unusable all year around due to poor climate control, there’s never been a better time to modernise and upgrade your old conservatory.
First-generation conservatories looked great when they first became popular in 1997. Since then they have gradually started to look tired, dirty and most probably damaged. Once they fail to keep out the elements, then they can cause considerable damage inside the conservatory or even in your home.
Is your conservatory old and tired looking, past its best and looking dated? Or have you moved into a property that has an existing conservatory but is not to your taste? Thankfully technology and design innovation has come a long way in recent years and it’s possible to transform your outdated conservatory into something modern and magical.
A refurbished conservatory could allow you to enjoy your conservatory all year round and finally become a room that’s fully incorporated into your home. There are endless ways you can update your existing conservatory – whenever it was built and whoever by. Consultants can complete a full assessment and advise you on the various options available to you.
Polycarbonate roofing is rarely fitted these days with new technology seeing the introduction of self-cleaning glass providing added benefits of heat retention and dispersal as well as far less maintenance – all at a competitive price.
Additionally, to transform your conservatory internally, you could look into an internal plastered soffit system which can provide a modern look with the addition of down lighters which can easily be added to a standard conservatory design.
Other ways you could transform your existing conservatory include:
- Changing the existing roof design for a pitched roof, even if you have a bungalow. Giving the appearance of a whole new bungalow.
- Upgrading windows and doors and making use of the existing framework.
- Swapping the wall and roof glass for more energy efficient alternatives.
- Incorporating an orangery style head beam with down lights to make your conservatory more stylish.
- Supply and fit roof vents which can be operated either manually or electronically with automatic rain and temperature sensors – allowing your conservatory to remain cool during the summer.
