Apple Home Improvements: In With The New

Modern Bespoke Conservatories
Conservatories are most often a gateway to your garden, a room filled with natural light that is a pleasant retreat during summer days, bringing the outdoors in. But what about the rest of the year?

Modern bespoke conservatories offer a very attractive solution to extending your home, creating a versatile, yet stylish, space. While remaining a summer sanctuary, your modern conservatory can be enjoyed all year round with some innovative design and thermally efficient roofing options.

Instead of being a space that you just clear out in the spring (and dust down the cane furniture), a modern bespoke conservatory can be integral to your home all year round as a living space, dining area, games room, home office or studio.


It’s All About The Roof
This bespoke design sets out to deliver a conservatory that looks more like a solid room from the inside, but is still bathed in plenty of natural light. In constructing a lightweight roof that is part solid, and part glass, you gain back full use of the space come rain or shine. The configuration of solid and glazed sections of the roof is a key part of the design. Arranging the position and number of glazed sections determines where and how much light enters the space, with consideration of how much solid ceiling area there will be, with a sleek plastered finish.

As the roof is lightweight, a conservatory frame is able to take the load and is made thermally efficient by the high-density insulation between the interior solid finish and external polycarbonate panels. The glazed sections are made up of specially selected, A-rated double-glazing that utilises coated low-E glass to control solar heat. With this type of modern roof solution conservatories are cooler in the summer and much more efficiently heated in colder months.

Another important element of bespoke conservatory design is the type of doors. Your choice of doors will largely depend on what they open out upon. To maximise synergy between room and garden, bi-folding doors are a popular choice, allowing for the space to be opened out completely to stunning effect. Where multiple exits are required, patio or French doors are a more practical solution with equal style.

No matter which Apple door solution is chosen for the project, they will naturally be thermally efficient and will have excellent security features.
Bespoke Conservatory 3D Design

Each bespoke conservatory starts with digital 3D-design, where all requirements and location details are considered. There are a number of traditional conservatory styles and shapes that can be tailored and developed into the perfect design for each project, and then superimposed onto an image of your home for an excellent visualisation of how the finished conservatory will look.


Conservatory Upgrades
If you already have a conservatory but want to enhance the style and thermal efficiency, then a conservatory upgrade is a fantastic option. While retaining the original foundations and brickwork, your upgraded design could be just a change of roof, a change that will make an amazing transformation and provide all year round comfort.

It’s still all about the roof, but upgrading is an opportunity to review doors, glazing, interior lighting and power points to ensure this project meets your lifestyle requirements and the intended use of your upgraded conservatory space.
