Conservatories, though extremely popular, are not the only way to extend your home and might not be the best option for you. How you plan to use your extra space will determine what will work best. There are plenty of beautiful conservatory alternatives out there that can truly add something special to your home.
A loggia is a beautiful upgrade on the conservatory that is inspired by Italian designs. Integrating solid pillars, vaulted ceilings and lantern roofs; these feel like a part of your home that’s always been there. Create a seamless blend with the rest of your property; these are a perfect choice for an extra living or dining area. With either full glazing or sky lights, you can enjoy a bright and spacious room to use all year round. Comfortable temperatures are maintained with thermally efficient glazing. No more worrying about abandoning the room when extreme temperatures hit.
If it’s more dining and cooking space you want, a kitchen extension might be a more suitable choice. You could create a stunning open plan space that allows you to entertain or simply have a more relaxed area. Being the heart of the home, your kitchen is an important family space so it’s important to incorporate as much personality as possible. Maybe you’ve always wanted a breakfast island you can all use together? Flood your kitchen with natural light with a lantern roof or incorporate bifold doors to add some alfresco dining. Creating a seamless flow with your garden is becoming an increasingly popular trend so experiment with this in your home.

These can be standalone structures in your garden and are a perfect choice for an office.
