Will your new conservatory be a contemporary garden space, or just somewhere new to put the dog basket?
Anna Pont of Ipswich based Vista-Outdoors explains more…..
Originally meant for housing the more exotic species of plants, and then stranded in no man's land throughout the nineties, conservatories are now seen as a must have home improvement for modern life, a more sophisticated living space, customised to the owner’s taste and reflecting the style of their home.
Gone are the days when conservatories were swelteringly hot in summer, and cold and draughty throughout the winter months; we’re starting to use conservatories to express our creativity with bi-fold doors, retractable roofs, LED lighting and Bluetooth music, and now they come in different colours and shapes, not just your typical, white uPVC box structure. Conservatories are now tailor made to compliment the home with design led structures and are no longer just a cheap add on, but a sophisticated addition to even the smallest outdoor space or garden.
Today the conservatory fulfils a variety of uses with both form and function developing significantly over the last decade. A conservatory now adds architectural character that adds real value to the home, and a beautiful garden structure to wow your guests.
Now with the luxury of new technology, we can have LED lighting, integrated speakers and heating, sunscreens and roofs all operated using new technology, a real alternative to a conventional conservatory.
It’s no surprise many people are choosing to opt for contemporary garden conservatories, both free-standing and attached. With stunning looks and contemporary appeal, we can now experience alfresco style dining 365 days a year, complete with perfect room temperature, background music, atmospheric lighting, all uniquely designed to the homeowner's taste.
