Extension or Conservatory:
It’s an argument which never seemed to go away whenever adding some extra space to the home was discussed. Should we have a single storey extension added to use as the dining room, or should we have a conservatory? Invariably the answer was extension. Conservatories are too hot in the summer, and cold in the winter. Thirty years ago I would probably have agreed, but not in 2017.
The Flexible Lean-To Conservatory:
The flexibility of a lean-to conservatory makes it one of the most popular, and cost-effective ways of extending the living area of a home, and with good reason. Cost is always a consideration, and a bespoke lean-to conservatory is a far cheaper option than a full on extension. Our lean-to conservatories don’t come in flat-pack. Each one is designed to meet individual client requirements.
The Best of Both Worlds:
Research has shown that natural light has a positive effect on the way people feel, and you get far more natural light diffused into the home through conservatory glazing, than you do through bricks and mortar. With the technological advances in modern glass production, double or triple glazed units, tints, and various films which reflect the sun’s heat back into the atmosphere, or central heating heat back into the room, a lean-to conservatory can provide the best of both an extension and conservatory.
We all know that glass losses heat quicker than conventional brick cavity walls. None-the-less, with a bit of thoughtful design a bespoke back garden lean-to conservatory can be sealed off from the rest of the house during those colder periods by good quality sliding patio doors or French Windows, while still allowing all that additional natural light in. During the summer, with doors hidden behind drapes, the conservatory becomes an extension of your living space.
Suitable for All Property Types:
Being able to blend seamlessly with all property types from Victorian to modern, bungalow to detached house, they can be constructed on the side or rear of the house. They can be all glass, or a mix of low brick walls, brick corner pillars and glass. They can have polycarbonate roofing, glazed roofing or tiled roofs. They can sit on concrete, metal or decking bases.
In fact the versatility of lean-to conservatories has to be seen to be believed. You’ll be amazed at the different styles of lean-to conservatories you can choose from.
