Usage

When you're thinking about adding a conservatory to your home, in the back of your mind somewhere there must already be an intended usage, be it dining room, study, play room etc. This is something important to think about as each room may require a different layout.

Positioning

Positioning

Conservatories are a perfect for getting lots of natural light. So when thinking about the location of your conservatory you'll want to think about how much sunlight you want, as south facing conservatories will get more sunlight and will mean you'll need to think about blinds or curtains.

Styles
