If you are thinking about extending your home it is important to consider the benefits of doing so, we offer 6 reasons why building a conservatory or orangery could be a very worthwhile investment:
- Gain extra living space
A conservatory instantly provides extra living space that can be used for many different purposes. Whether for sunlit breakfasts or candlelit dinners, many conservatories are used as dining and entertaining areas while others make functional study spaces or home offices: the possibilities are endless. Most conservatories are extensions to the back of the house, but a lean-to style (read more here) can also make the most of an underused space such as a side return. An orangery can also be designed as a completely separate garden room, creating a peaceful retreat away from the main house.
2. Enhance the value of your property
A bespoke orangery or conservatory enhances the value of your home: in today’s tight housing market, buyers look for features that add value when seeking a new home. Giving your home the edge with a tasteful, well-designed conservatory makes it more visually appealing and comfortable to live in. In today’s busy world, most buyers prefer to purchase a home all ready to move in to: with all the major improvements already made, they don’t have to undergo the expense and upheaval of further alterations.
3. Save energy
Modern conservatories are highly energy efficient. Conservatories first became widely popular in the 1980s but were often underused because they were cold in winter and too hot in summer (read more here), while high noise levels from rain falling on the roof also made them less appealing at times. Thankfully, modern conservatories take advantage of the latest high-tech developments: with energy-efficient glazing (read more) and frames and a thermally insulated roofing system, they can be enjoyed all year round and whatever the weather. Relax with a glass of wine on a sunny afternoon - or imagine looking out at falling snow while you sit snug and cosy inside.
4. Bridge the gap between house and garden
Throughout the spring and summer, a beautiful garden takes centre stage so it’s natural to make the most of it. Bespoke conservatories seamlessly unite the two areas with glazed doors that suit the style of your house, whether patio, French or bi-folding doors. A contemporary design with floor to ceiling glass walls really helps to bring the outside in: using the same flooring materials throughout the space creates a seamless transition from the kitchen or dining room to your garden.
5. Choose a bespoke design to suit your requirements
A Bergson & Eaton conservatory can be tailor-made to meet your individual needs: you can choose any size, shape, or colour, in hardwood, aluminium or high-quality uPVC.

In fact, there’s so much choice it can feel a little overwhelming: at Bergson & Eaton, we have a wealth of experience in designing and installing conservatories, so our expert designers can assist you throughout the process. From taking care of any paperwork to the design, manufacture and installation of your beautiful new conservatory, we make sure that everything goes smoothly with as little disruption and mess as possible.
6. Avoid the stress and expense of moving to a new house
Installing a conservatory is far less expensive and also less stressful than moving home. If you are considering moving because you need more space, it’s well worth thinking about installing a conservatory instead. When you add up the expenses of a substantial deposit, mortgage fees, stamp duty, solicitors’ fees and house removal firm costs, a conservatory makes excellent sense from a financial point of view, plus you get to stay in the house you love.
