Where Can You Build a Conservatory in Your Edinburgh Property and Its Design?

By LauraCampbell Subscribe to RSS | February 22nd 2012 | Views:

In a place in Edinburgh, where people are sun starved, the homeowners find the idea of a conservatory very enticing. This is because it provides natural temperature, tropical light and a beautiful, relaxing sitting space. Conservatories can be used all year round.

Moreover, these days there are many variations in the idea of a traditional conservatory. There are now kitchen conservatories, breakfast conservatories, living conservatories, family area conservatories. The best thing about this part of the house is that it’s cozy all year round.

In order to get a conservatory in your house there are a number of things which you must consider.

Where can you get it built?

Deciding the location of a conservatory is crucial. First of all you must decide- where in the house do you want it built? Mostly, conservatories are built at the side or front of the property. They are also added at the back of the property at garden level. A conservatory can also be on a second floor but there are planning issues with regard to this.

Another thing you need to consider with regard to its location is the direction of the conservatory. The conservatories facing east make ideal breakfast rooms as they are good for early morning sun. At the same time they can be very cold in winters. The conservatories facing north will be warm and bright in summers but in winters they will be needing insulation and heating. South facing conservatories get the most sunlight all year round. Lastly, the west facing conservatories are ideal for plants as they provide indirect sunlight in summers.

Design of a conservatory

The conservatory should always be in accordance with the main building and complement it. For example a modern conservatory on a period house will look out of the place. There are special conservatory companies which offer a range of style. If you have the funds with you then it will be better to hire the services of a company and get a conservatory to suit the property and space.

Glass and polycarbonate

Glass is one of the options for getting a conservatory built. It is strong and transparent and provides nice views. This is also more expensive then polycarbonate. There are some special quality glasses which help to control internal heating, direct heat from the sun and condensation. Double glazed glass is also used which improves the insulation.

Besides this there is the option of polycarbonate. This is a lightweight material, cheaper then glass. However it is not as transparent as glass and will be noisy when it rains.
