A conservatory is one of the most popular home improvements; extending your space with an impressive new room. They give you the opportunity to create a modern and stylish space that can be used for anything you want it to be. However, does a conservatory really add value to your home?
By adding an extra room to your home, you will increase its desirability to potential buyers. More affordable and less hassle than an extension, you could add value to your home at minimal cost to you. A well-built conservatory could increase your home’s value by at least 5%. However, like any home improvement, the actual value a conservatory will add can depend on several factors. The materials you use and the size amongst other things are important considerations.
|South facing garden?||Access maximum amount of sunlight for your conservatory!|
|East or west-facing garden?||Your new conservatory will also enjoy sunlight at different times of the day.|
|Attractive surrounding views?||Being made mainly of glass makes a room everyone will love to spend time in.|
|Size?||Choose wisely! Too small and you may be limited with what you can do with it. Too big and it could dwarf your home and take up valuable garden space.|
|Style of home?||Staying in keeping with your home’s style is especially important with traditional homes. An ultramodern conservatory added onto a heritage property could harm the look as well as the value.|
|Spoken to a local estate agent yet?||They will have experience of selling homes that have extended. Make sure you don’t go above your street’s ceiling price.|
|Found a reputable double glazing company?||With a company like SEH BAC, you can guarantee high-quality materials are used and building regulations are followed.|
A conservatory shouldn’t be used solely as a way of adding economic value to your home. The extra space and transformation it makes to your way of living are much more important. Whether you want to extend your kitchen or need a playroom for your growing family, a conservatory gives you that much-needed space.
We take conservatories seriously and offer you a wide range of materials, colours and styles. From the classic uPVC to attractive timber or modern aluminium, we can create any type of conservatory you want. With any style available, we will work with you to design the perfect space for your home. Choose from crystal-clear glass roofs or warming tiled roofs. We can even carry out a roof replacement to bring your existing conservatory back to life.

We went to an estate agent for an independent view on whether a conservatory will really help to sell your home. According to Nick Curtis, assistant manager at the Colchester High Street branch of Fine Estate Agents, most people looking for a family home want one of two things: a second reception room and a kitchen diner, both of which can be a conservatory.
Conservatories can be added to any home of any size, but if you want to enhance the way you live and make it more saleable, too, these are Nick’s ten top tips:
