What are Local Conservatory & Orangery Prices?
Extending the family home with a conservatory
Many homeowners in the UK at some point or another think about extending or re-modelling their houses, either to increase the value or in order to accommodate a growing family. Whilst it is understandable to think of adding a room or loft extension, it may be worthwhile considering adding a conservatory – especially when value for money conservatory orangery prices are to be found in the market place.
Each orangery design is unique and built to the specification of the customer, so you are going to stand out immediately. Not only that, but orangeries are generally more ‘substantial’ than a regular upvc conservatory & look much more like part of the house than an ‘after-market addition’.
With lantern roofs that look like the atrium of a posh hotel, solid pillar & columns building an orangery not only gives that extra living space it adds value to the home, especially when they have double glazed doors fitted – often adding significantly much more value to the home than the cost of the orangery itself.

how much does a new conservatory cost in the uk? – this will depend upon style, size & features.
Under floor heating
A brilliant solution to this problem is underfloor heating because it does not use any of the living area and gives a very even spread of heat across the room. In other words, no cold spots because the heat originates at floor level and covers entire floor area. There are water based (wet) underfloor systems & electric based (dry) underfloor systems, however if you go for a wet system then this is best installed during the initial construction phase. Dry systems have the added option of being able to be “retro-fitted” (afterwards) if needed.
Power & Light
No matter whether you are going to use the space for work, rest or play, power & light will definitely need to be installed.
Give some thought to the number of electricity sockets you may want and where best to put them, will the lighting be powered from the sockets or will you be needing some overhead cables for ceiling mounted lights? (Maybe even a fancy ceiling mounted fan?)
Shade & Privacy
Even if you lucky enough to have total privacy, having the sun blazing in all day may make it uncomfortable to use the conservatory, if you are using the conservatory for leisure or work too much sunlight it will certainly make it difficult to see a TV or Computer screen during daylight hours.
Luckily there are some amazing window blinds available in the market; they are a great way of controlling light and providing privacy. Venetian blinds are particularly good at doing both jobs at once and there are now models available that simply slots into the frames of upvc windows without having to drill or screw them into place (great for DIY’ers).
Conservatory Interior Furnishings
The furnishing of the room is obviously going to be dictated by the type of use that the conservatory is being put to, and in terms of interior décor ideas, I am the worlds’ worst person to try to give any kind of advice. Suffice to say that the furniture you put into the room it is clearly going to be a matter of personal choice and I am sure that visiting huge home furniture stores is something that every British family is looking forward to.
