Firstly design on your design.
Do you want a traditional conservatory, orangery style conservatory or something that looks more like an extension? You might want your conservatory to compliment your home or you might want it to contrast to add something that little bit different. You also need to consider what the conservatory will be used for - will it be used as a place to relax and enjoy? Will it be used as an additional room in the house for example a kitchen or dining room? Take into consideration these things before deciding.
Choose your roof style.
If you want to keep it traditional and intend the room to be a place a place to relax and unwind, you're probably going to want to go for a conservatory or orangery style roof with glass. Our glass is more than just glass. It's self clean, low E, argon filled glass with solar control technologies which allows the room to keep cool in summer and warm in winter. There are also glass upgrades you can consider too, particularly for side frame glazing including glass with UV protection so your furniture doesn't fade in the sun and sound reduction glass - perfect if you live in a built up area or close to the city. If you are looking to add a conservatory with a more solid, robust feel like an extension you'd probably go for a solid roof with tiles.
Style it like a room.
Make your conservatory part of the home & treat it like you would any other room. Add stylish furniture and accessories and remember to style it depending on the conservatory style you choose.
If you choose to go for a traditional conservatory or orangery, flags or tiles look wonderful. It keeps the room looking and feeling light and airy just as you would intend. If you decide on a solid roof or WARMroof, carpets usually go best, making the room feel like an extension and keeping a cosy look & feel.
Don't forget to consider doors and windows too. Aluminium doors and windows are fast becoming a material of choice for many homeowners due to their strength, longevity, thermal qualities and aesthetic appeal. Also consider adding bi-folds or sliding doors to open up your home to the outdoors. Imagine relaxing in your conservatory with the doors open in the summer and an unimpeded view of your garden?
