Turn your old conservatory into a playroom
And enjoy having more space!
When it’s wet outside and the children need room to play, make use of your old conservatory to give you the extra room you need. Don’t feel daunted by the fact your conservatory is too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter or needs repairs. Renovating and refreshing your conservatory is probably much quicker (and more affordable) than you think. It’s certainly easier than moving home or having an expensive extension.
From tired, old conservatory to stunning new space
By installing an insulated conservatory ceiling into your old conservatory, it will regulate the temperature, come rain or shine. It also reduces damp, sun glare and external noise. And if it’s just a ceiling that is installed, we can normally do that in a day (depending on the shape and size of your conservatory).
As a playroom, your conservatory is a self-contained, safe and comfortable environment where toys can be stored at the end of the day – or left out. And of course, children are brilliant at being noisy particularly when you’re trying to talk, listen on the phone or concentrate! Using your conservatory as a playroom means you can close the door – keeping your children safe whilst giving you the peace and quiet you sometimes need.

What most people don’t realise is that the biggest source of the carbon footprint you leave, is your home and household emissions. According to Nesta, “domestic energy use accounts for more than 21 % of UK greenhouse gas emissions each year.” The Office for National Statistics claim that households have been the single biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the UK since 2015 and account for almost 28% of the UK’s total emissions.
Yup, it’s getting a bit boring now. After all, with summer travel still difficult and all the challenges of the last 18 months, we do all really need some warm sunny weather and some long balmy days spent in the garden.
As the sun finally comes out after weeks of rain, there’s been a collective sigh of relief across the UK. Summer is here at last and if we can’t go on holiday, we can at least enjoy some long sunny days. But that said, if you’re a traditional conservatory owner, things might look a little different.
This time last week we were writing about how to keep cool in a heatwave as temperatures were set to soar over the weekend. Roll forward to today, and we’ve just dug out our flippers and wetsuit! But hey, that’s British weather for you.
There is no doubt that Covid 19 has changed many lives for good. In the space of 12 months working from home has become the norm with Zoom and online conferencing becoming second nature, and many large employers taking the decision to permanently downsize office space. Although the country is gradually re-opening, it is unlikely that working practices and lives will ever completely return to how things were before March 2020.
