Will A Conservatory Add Value To Your North London Home? Spring has well and truly sprung, and with longer evenings to enjoy and the growing temptation to dust-off the barbecue, our attention turns to extending our home into the garden, but will a conservatory really add value to your North London Home? A conservatory is one of the most popular home improvements; extending your space with an impressive new room. They give you the opportunity to create a modern and stylish space that can be used for anything you want it to be. From an additional family room, games room, gym or even an outdoor office, at Entire Houze, we can design a conservatory to suit any purpose. A conservatory can add far more to the value of a property than it costs, providing it is designed, built and integrated into the layout of the house well. More affordable and less hassle than an extension, you could add value to your home at minimal cost to you. A well-built conservatory could increase your home’s value by 5-15%. However, like any home improvement, the actual value a conservatory will add can depend on several factors. The materials you use and the size amongst other things are important considerations. Adding a conservatory to a house is considered to be permitted development, provided it meets certain rules and regulations. For example, it’s exempt from the rules if it’s no more than 4m high and lower than the highest part of the existing roof, and if it covers no more than half the area of land around the original house. Choosing the correct size for a conservatory extension is vital for added property value. Your conservatory should appear as if it was part of the original house, not a quick add on. Often the conservatory which adds the most value to your home will be one that is proportionate in size. As British buyers highly value gardens, be careful you don’t reduce your home’s value by oversizing your conservatory. Small sunrooms can still add value. Large conservatories will add to the size of your home, but neither are considered a full room during valuations. Speak to a local estate agent to find out how much they believe a conservatory could add to your home. They will have experience of selling homes that have extended. Make sure you don’t go above your street’s ceiling price. Entire Houze is experienced in designing a wide range of bespoke conservatories and offers a variety of designs to our customers. As with all our North London building projects we will plan, design, advise, buy the necessary materials and complete the entire project from beginning to end. Whether contemporary or traditional, Victorian or Gable, Gull-Wing or Edwardian, our team of specialists will create a conservatory you can be proud of. With all said and done, conservatories are a great option if you want to add value to your home before selling as conservatories are a relatively fast option. However, it’s not worth building a low-end conservatory, as this could actually decrease the property’s value.
