The Perfect Conservatory
When you have decided on the type of Conservatory you want building, the next step is to make it your own.
Selecting the Conservatory features and specifications which are right for you can often take a while.
But, the finishing result in the end is definitely worth it; especially when you see how all of the different components fit together so nicely.
This guide will take you through the additional conservatory features that you can purchase.
Of which many ConservatoryLand can offer.
The Right Doors for You
Being such a stand out feature in the extension, selecting the correct doors is key.
Take time to consider exactly what you want.
As each type provides its own benefit
For example. bi-folding doors optimise the space from your room to the garden, creating more of an open plan feel.
Have a look at the available conservatory doors to make sure you get exactly what you want.
Consider Getting Conservatory Glazing
With many types of conservatory glazing to choose from, you can decide on different types of glazing and decorative options.
All have their own unique benefits but can keep you warmer in the colder months and cooler in summer.
It’s just about selecting which conservatory glazing you prefer.
Pick from a Choice of Frames
You are likely to pick a frame which aligns with the style of your house.
And because houses come in all different colours and styles these days, ConservatoryLand have various colour schemes to pick from.
Which Roof Would You Like?
Roof specifications can be more in-depth than you think.
With decisions being made on the roof type, vent and colour options.
These are all choices you will make as part of your conservatory purchase.
So make sure you explore the conservatory roofs on offer to ensure your conservatory design is consistent with that of your home.
Even More Features
Once you have fully decided on your perfect conservatory, and the project is complete, it will then be time to get to work on the interior.
If your stuck for ideas, why not take a look at our ultimate interior guide.
The below additional features highlight the extras you may consider buying yourself, to make your conservatory more homely.
Make Your Conservatory Extra Cosy in the Colder Months
Although, as standard, and with adequate heating, ConservatoryLand’s sealed double glazing units will help the room stays warm in the winter months, we all have varied preferences to room temperature.
So choosing to add a source of heating is recommended, to fully optimise the space.
Conservatory heating takes many forms, with each type, very much depending on your budget.
Typically having a radiator fitted where able is a popular heating choice.
However you may opt to purchase a free standing plug in heater to use as and when required.
For a more efficient heating source consider underfloor heating.
Please be aware that how you intend to heat your conservatory can render it subject to building regulations which can affect the specifications needed for both foundations and the conservatory itself. We advise that you check this with your local building control department.
Consider Air Conditioning to Keep Cool on Warmer Days
As conservatories are largely glass, when the sun is shining, the temperature of this room will naturally rise.
So, just as you would purchase a heater, an air conditioning unit or fan may also be a worthwhile buy; allowing you to cool down when the weather is much warmer.
And knowing the unpredictable nature of the UK weather, you’ll be able to ensure your conservatory remains at a temperature you are happy with.

Take Time to Choose the Correct Lighting
Brighten up your new space with either a wall light, or lamps.
Although often a tedious task choosing things such as lighting, it can often help transform the space, either providing a feature to admire in the room, or to simply bring the room to life.
So, take the time to look through catalogues, and venture to the shops to choose the lighting you want.
Carpet? Tiles? Laminate Flooring? It’s Up To You
Just like choosing any new floor, conservatory flooring is no different.
You can decide on exactly what you want, based on your own tastes and preferences.
I would advise you choose something that complements your existing flooring choices though, as it will help the flow between your house and conservatory.
Make the Most of the Space by Introducing Blinds or Curtains
Although it’s great that the natural light beams through your windows, at night time it’s often nice to enjoy the privacy of your own room.
Also, a popular choice of furniture in a conservatory is often a sofa bed.
Therefore blocking out the natural light will allow the space to feel more like a room.
And, don’t worry about the shape of your conservatory as a lot of companies offer bespoke blind fittings.
Style Your Space with Furniture
Whether you are looking to purchase a conservatory dining set or sofa, make the most of your new room.
Like I said, you may choose to double the room up as an additional area for guests to stay, or simply a space to relax and unwind with your family and friends.
Whatever you decide, enjoy spending time in your new furnished conservatory.
Keep your Conservatory Secure
Just like you would with your home, you want to ensure your new space is secure as it can be.
And although all door styles purchased from ConservatoryLand are equipped with reliable locking systems, you may want to add that extra bit of security for peace of mind.
Whether you are looking to fit an alarm or purchase an extra lock or light sensors, there’s a range of options on the market to explore.
