28 May The benefits of investing in a conservatory
Have you considered adding a conservatory to your home? Maybe you’ve been put off by the thought of a considerable upfront investment, or your home becoming a bit of a building site, or nightmare stories of cowboy builders and poor craftsmanship.
At Park Lane, we have years of experience designing and building conservatories for customers. We’re a trusted, reliable installer, and ensure the best possible quality for our clients. Our team of experienced professionals build conservatories to the highest possible standards, whilst ensuring minimal disruption to the home and full building regulations compliance. We believe that conservatories are a great addition to any property, so keep reading to find out why we think you should invest in one.
They increase property value
The first thing you’ll probably be wondering is: will I get my investment back? When you pay to have a conservatory installed, you’re essentially investing that money for the future. Conservatories add value to any home, in most cases beyond the amount you’ve invested, so not only will you get your money back when you sell, but it’s likely that you’ll have even made money!
But they don’t just add to the value of the property, conservatories also make your home more attractive to potential buyers – for the same reasons as you may have considered adding one. This means that when it’s time to sell, your home will probably sell much quicker. They’re especially beneficial if you live in an area where the houses all have the same floor plans and look the same, as a conservatory will add a unique selling point to your property. Which means buyers are more likely to choose it over other properties in the area.
Conservatories add extra space to your home
It probably goes without saying, but conservatories add extra space to your home. Whether you use it as a dining room to free up space in a small kitchen, a playroom where your children can let loose, a home office, or a home gym. If your current home doesn’t have enough space downstairs, you might have thought about upgrading to a larger home.
Building a conservatory is a much more cost-effective and less stressful option for adding space to your home. With stamp duty, surveyor fees, and moving costs, plus the extra cost of a larger home, it often makes sense to make the most of the space you have.
It’s also much cheaper and requires less time and disruption than an extension. Plus you probably won’t need to worry about getting planning permission.
They’re a beautiful addition to a home
Almost anyone with a conservatory will tell you how much they enjoy spending time in them. With so much glass, they let lots of natural light into your home and provide a great place to soak up the sun. If you love spending time outdoors and in your garden, but find you often can’t because of the gloomy British weather, you’ll find a conservatory the perfect middle ground to enjoy your garden whilst being sheltered from the rain and wind.

There are solutions to match any home
One thing that may have prevented you from investing in a conservatory previously, could simply be that you just don’t like the look of them. Here at Park Lane, we have loads of choice, whether you want to match the conservatory to blend into your home or you want it to completely stand out. With lots of different structural design choices, colours and finishes, and other stylistic choices. Whether your property is older and more traditional looking, or it’s a modern new-build, you can completely customise your conservatory to suit your home. Some of the options that we offer include Victorian, Edwardian, Gable front, Lean-to, P-shaped, Orangeries, Livin Rooms, and The Loggia.
Conservatories are no longer unusable in the winter
Unfortunately, conservatories have earnt a bad name as a result of a history of being too hot or too cold rendering them unusable for most of the year. However, this is easily avoided thanks to the advancement in conservatory technology. For example, solid conservatory roofs as an alternative to traditional uPVC help to prevent overheating in the summer, and provide better insulation in the colder winter months.
