In England and Wales planning permission is not usually required for a conservatory. If you are planning to buy a conservatory to expand your home you will be able to proceed without the need for planning permission so long as you do not exceed the development limit. But remember, if you live in a listed building or within a conservation area it is best to get council advice.
What is the best position for it to be installed?
Your installer will be able to advise on this, so remember to think about where the sun will be in the daytime, will you require extra ventilation or blinds?
How big should it be?
Try not to take up too much of your garden space , your conservatory should be an extension of your home, but not at the expense of your lawn!
Plan you conservatory carefully beforehand
Mark out in your garden where the conservatory will be. Make sure you ask your installer what the internal dimensions of the finished conservatory will be.
Have you considered your neighbours?
Will your conservatory effect their enjoyment of their garden/sunlight?
Will your conservatory ne secure?
Remember to lock up – for added security ensure you lock not just your external conservatory door, but also the door linking your conservatory to your house.
A dwarf wall or a glass wall?
Do you want your conservatory to have a low wall, or have a full height glass wall to maximise the light?
Have you considered an alternative to a white finish?
Personalise your conservatory to make it as individual as you are. From finials to cresting, lighting to heating and flooring to furniture, there are many choices. Also with modern production techniques you are now able to choose coloured PVCu which looks exactly like real woodgrain or with a paint effect. You can even decide to have your conservatory one colour on the inside to match furnishings and another colour on the outside to match your house.
Have you considered Bi-Fold doors?
Bi-fold doors can open up the whole conservatory and bring the outside in. These versatile doors can even be used from your house into your conservatory, so making use of all the available space to you.
Most importantly enjoy your new conservatory with the extra light, space and style that it has given your home!
