With house prices predicted to fall by as much as 10% over the next two years, and current mortgage rates around four or five times higher than they were just a couple of years ago, now is not the best time to move home. But, homeowners are still looking for ways to increase the amount of useable space within their homes. If that sounds like you, then a conservatory or orangery from Premier and Crown could be the perfect solution.

Benefits of a conservatory or orangery for Buckinghamshire homes

Conservatories and orangeries are cheaper alternatives for creating more space than moving to a house with more rooms, and they can add significant value to your home. They also provide an easy way to bring natural light into your home, as well as give access to outdoor areas like gardens and patios.

Another benefit of extending the living space is that it can help create a sense of openness and flow within the house, making it feel more spacious. Additionally, you have the freedom to design your conservatory or orangery in any style you choose, and we at Premier and Crown offer various tiled, solid, and glass roof options so you’ll be able to customise the space to fit with the existing look and feel of your home.

A conservatory or orangery adds value to your home and can provide a beautiful and stylish space for entertaining or relaxing. With careful consideration of design and materials, it can become an integral part of your home that you will enjoy for years to come. For example, conservatories and orangeries are commonly used as extra living spaces, but with a solid or tiled roof these spaces can also make fantastic dining rooms, children’s play areas, or even as an extra bedroom.

Additionally, modern conservatories and orangeries are designed with energy efficiency in mind and can help reduce heat loss from the rest of your home, potentially helping to lower your energy bills.

Finally, extending your home with a conservatory or orangery is much less disruptive than moving house, meaning you won’t have to go through all the hassle of packing up and finding a new place.

Conservatories and orangeries are more cost-effective than moving home

By the time you add up all the costs, the act of moving home is not cheap. Nor is it easy. And it certainly comes with more than its fair share of stress too. Why put yourself through all of that when you can make home improvements to the house you know and love? Especially when it works out much more cost-effective.

Let’s do the maths quickly to prove it. Adding a bedroom to a property is said to increase its value by around 15%. So, if you’re looking to move from a £300,000 three-bed to a home with four bedrooms, you’ll be looking at around £345,000. That means the house price increase alone will cost around £45,000. By the time you factor in the expense of physically moving, not to mention the increases to on-going costs such as Council Tax, you’ll be looking at close to £50,000 to add that extra bedroom.

Building a conservatory or orangery instead can offer several advantages, including increased space, light, and energy efficiency, and in most cases, won’t require the expense and hassle of obtaining planning permission either. And, unlike building an extension, installing conservatories or orangeries doesn’t come with hidden or unexpected costs, so you know the price you’ll pay before work even begins. The average cost of installing a conservatory in the UK starts from around £15,000.
