Sometimes, people assume that a garden room like a conservatory or orangery is purely seasonal. This is a long way from the truth – there is so much that you can do with these rooms throughout the year. It would be a real shame to limit their use to certain times of the year and they should be treated as somewhere to give you that much-coveted extra space. If you want some ideas for making your garden room more versatile throughout the seasons, read on:
You see, a conservatory, orangery or glass room can bring you and your family so much joy all year round. Don’t limit its use to the summer. Install some blinds, get some heating, and in no time at all you will have a flexible room that everybody will love being in.
People who are lucky enough to have a beautiful garden should be able to enjoy it all year round. However, with the Great British weather, this isn’t always possible without giving yourself a helping hand. If you want to make the most of your outdoor space, you could consider adding an extra room onto your home to help bring the outdoors indoors. Conservatories and glass rooms can be the perfect solution for you.
There are so many different things you can do with a conservatory. They come in many different shapes and designs, and you can decorate them to make them feel more snug and cosy or more light and airy depending on your tastes.

Whilst conservatories are the perfect way to bring light into your home, you can also add blinds and shades so that you can enjoy the space without it becoming too warm.
Perhaps one of the reasons why people like conservatories so much is the versatility they offer. You can use the space in so many ways – to snuggle down and read a book, as a kind of den or television room, as a spot to entertain and dine or simply as a space to relax and enjoy the view. You can change the function depending on the seasons as well. Just make sure that you have good shade and heating options to allow you to get the most out of your space.
Glass rooms and conservatories are usually simple to build. They won’t require planning permission in most circumstances, but they will add so much to your home for a relatively small amount of effort. If you’re thinking about investing, speak to a contractor and ask them to carry out a survey. This will give you an idea of conservatory costs and timings, so you can get the process started.
