Helping to maximise light and space
Like all features within a home, sun rooms and conservatories are loved by some purchasers but less so by others “but” says Jane Bailey, Sales Manager at Bewley Homes “done well, a conservatory can act as a useful room to connect the interior space with the exterior – such as in our combination drawing room / conservatory at our Parklands development on the edge of Reading; but they can also act as useful additions to rooms such as kitchens should individuals require an separate area in which to dine or relax.
“There are many advantages to having a sun room / conservatory. The floor to over ceiling glass provides a full aspect of the exterior space giving the impression that the outside is fully incorporated within the interior. This in turn maximises the amount of light to the room and means on days when the weather is good that the inside and outside space can be fully combined, increasing the square footage area in which one can live and entertain.
“The nature of a fully or almost fully glass ‘wall’ means that blinds or shading of some sort are desirable – not only from the perspective of very sunny days but, depending on the surrounding environment, from a privacy point of view too. Underfloor heating is also something to consider as it will keep the temperature of the room consistently warm in colder months and eliminates the need for radiators which take up additional space.”
