Your guide to Conservatories

Have you been thinking about adding space to your home? Do you feel an extension would be too costly, or take up too much of your garden? Then why not consider a conservatory? Whether you require a new dining area, a play area or office space, it is the perfect solution.

A conservatory will add living space to your home, while also making the most of your garden and adding value to your home, but at a much lower cost than an extension.

Conservatory sizes

One factor to check and double-check before you make your order is the size of the conservatory that you've chosen and how it will fit into your outside space.

Be aware that any existing structures such as manhole covers and drainage pipes will need to be relocated, so it's an idea to have a word with your builder about the extra time and cost it would mean to deal with such elements.

A good way to check that your space will take your chosen conservatory is to mark out the relevant dimensions with string and bamboo canes.

  • Please note that all sizes refer to external brick dimensions and the height is measured from the floor to the external roof ridge, and does not include finials and cresting.
