Adding living space equals adding value

Extending the living space in a property is an option that many people are considering at the moment as they seek to increase the value of their home. One way to achieve this is to add a conservatory to the property which could be used as a dining room or lounge area. With the recent relaxation of strict planning rules, it is easier than ever to build a conservatory, but plans do need to be checked with the local planning authority to make sure they conform to building regulations that are in place.

Planning the type of conservatory to install is important so that you have the best type for your family’s needs. Decisions will need to be made on the shape and size of the conservatory and whether to have a totally glass one or one that has a dwarf wall around the base. The latter is a better choice if you want to be able to use the conservatory all year round as it allows fixtures such as electrical sockets and radiators or other heating appliances to be attached to the wall.

Although having a conservatory on the rear or side of the property will reduce the size of the garden the increase in useable interior space is seen as worthwhile by most homeowners.
