A conservatory is a great addition to your home – it gives you extra room and light and allows you to enjoy your garden all year round. But if you’ve not got much space in your garden to expand into, you might have dismissed the idea of a conservatory.
However, a small conservatory can transform the space you already have – you could enlarge your kitchen or create an additional living area.
If you’re still not convinced that a small conservatory is worth it, take a look at these conservatories that have made it work. If you’ve already decided that you’ve got room for a small one, take inspiration from these ideas.
