18 April 2024

Are you considering adding a new space to your Liverpool home? Perhaps you're picturing basking in the summer sun or enjoying the panoramic views of your garden?

With spring taking its first tentative steps and potentially looking like a hot summer just around the corner (we are certainly crossing our fingers!), now is the perfect time to explore your options for expanding your living space.

In today's post, we'll look into the differences and advantages of conservatories, orangeries, lanterns, and replacement roofs for conservatories, and why now is the right time to start planning and making sure your potential new space is ready for summer.

Conservatories: Bringing the Outdoors In

Conservatories are classic additions to any home, providing a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living spaces. With their large windows and glass roofs, conservatories flood your home with natural light, creating a bright and airy atmosphere. Whether you're looking for a space to relax, entertain guests, or cultivate your indoor garden, a conservatory offers versatility and charm in addition to helping with the potential resale of your property.

Orangeries: Timeless Elegance

Orangeries blend traditional charm with modern design, offering a more substantial and solid structure compared to conservatories. With their brick pillars, glazed lantern roofs, and extensive glazing, orangeries exude sophistication and elegance. Perfect for homeowners seeking a luxurious extension that integrates with their existing property and architecture, orangeries provide a versatile space for dining, lounging, or even as a home office.

Lanterns: Illuminating Your Space

Lanterns, often found atop orangeries or flat-roofed extensions, are architectural features designed to maximise natural light and enhance visual appeal. With their glass panels and intricate framework, lanterns create a focal point in any room while flooding the space below with sunlight. Whether you're adding a lantern to your existing extension or incorporating it into a new build, this addition adds a touch of elegance and grandeur to your home.

Replacement Roofs: Revitalise Your Conservatory

If your existing conservatory is feeling a bit outdated or suffering from wear and tear? Conservatory too cold in winter and too hold in summer? Replacement roofs offer a cost-effective solution to breathe new life into your space. Upgrade from a polycarbonate roof to a thermally efficient glass roof, or opt for a solid tiled roof for improved insulation and significant savings on your energy bills. By replacing your conservatory roof now, you can enjoy a more comfortable and energy-efficient space just in time for summer.
