You may think you already know what defines a conservatory or an extension but to see the official definitions, click here. This may help you to decide whether to add a conservatory or an extension to your home in Scotland.
A conservatory has a larger amount of glazing than an extension. An extension may also be more thermally efficient and more suited to being used all year round – something that is worth considering for the often-cool climate of Scotland, particularly if you’re in the Scottish Highlands.
Once you’ve done your research and decided between adding a conservatory or an extension to your home in Scotland, the next step is to choose what style.
There are a huge range of conservatory styles to choose from and one key consideration to bear in mind is the shape of the floor space. If you choose a Victorian or p-shaped conservatory, then the floor space will feature a curved faceted area. If you go for Edwardian/Georgian or a lean-to conservatory, then your floor space will be angular in either a square or rectangular shape which can often allow for a better use of the space as furniture also tends to be largely angular.
Your conservatory may already exist and you are simply looking to replace the roof to make it more suited to the climate in Scotland or give it a new lease of life and make it feel more like a room. If this is the case, you simply need to choose which of the Ultraframe solid replacement conservatory roofing systems is best for your home in Scotland.
