Installing a conservatory will add space and light to your home, giving you the extra room you may need for a growing family. And with a Victorian conservatory design you can increase home value by over £9,000, making sure to get a return on the investment you make.
The Victorian conservatory is a popular design and a particular favourite in the UK. It’s principally known for having a rounded shape and stylish appeal, with the crisp roof softened by facets.
With Victorian conservatories there’s excellent flexibility too, so you can find something to suit your home and have a say in parts of the design. For instance you can have a say in the number of facets and pick an equal sided or wide fronted style.
It’s this control over the installation that makes Victorian conservatories such a popular feature in British homes. Essentially it can be manufactured to your requirements and criteria. You can choose the positioning and types of doors, to the frame colours.
As with any conservatory though you want something which will complement your original home, making the material choice a big deal. There are three main frame materials on offer for those seeking a conservatory: uPVC, aluminium and hardwood.
When it comes to popularity, uPVC wins hands down as the cheaper option. As well as its great price, it doesn’t compromise on effectiveness either and is extremely durable and weather resistant.
If uPVC doesn’t take your fancy though, there are the slightly more expensive options of aluminium and hardwood to take a look at. Aluminium is easily the strongest and most durable option by the price reflects this and it tends to be the most expensive installation.
Meanwhile, wooden conservatories are suitable for traditional looking homes, especially properties in conservation areas. You will need to carry out regular maintenance to keep it in great condition though but this is nothing too strenuous.
If you want to have a Victorian conservatory installed, then make sure to compare quotes for the work. We always recommend receiving three or four prices because this will give you a much better idea of the real cost. The last thing you want is to spend more than necessary.
