Caring for Your Conservatory
Adding a conservatory to your home is a great way of adding space without creating massive disruption. A conservatory will welcome light into your home and give you a space from which to enjoy both your garden and the weather. If you already have a conservatory, you’ll know that you only obtain optimum temperatures for a small part of the day. The traditional glazed conservatory roof loses a lot of heat in the winter and in summer a glazed roof can fast turn your conservatory into a sauna. To prevent this, one great idea is to consider conservatory roof replacement. Guardian Solid Roof, www.guardiansolidroof.co.uk, offer prefabricated roof replacements which can help to stop this build up of heat. If you deal with this problem, then you can go back to enjoying your conservatory throughout the summer months.
Add an Awning
An alternative way of adding interest to your garden is by adding a retractable awning. If you have a small garden, this is a viable option as it means that you can create shade when you want it without taking over an already stretched space. The retractable awnings sold by Blind Technique, can be fitted to most properties. For south facing homes, they provide shade during the hottest parts of the day. The awnings won’t protect you from the elements entirely but if you don’t have the space to add a conservatory and are just looking to shade a patio, an awning may work perfectly for you.
For larger gardens, gazebos look wonderful. Gazebos blend the indoor and the outdoor in a very attractive way, combining the comforts of home with the opportunities to immerse yourself in your garden and the outdoors. Spindle House, make gorgeous thatched gazebos that add an exotic flavour to your space. The shade provided by a gazebo is welcomed during the warmer months and the use of natural materials means that it creates a coherent and relaxing overall aesthetic.
Depending on the size of your outdoor space, there is a plenitude of ways in which you can maximise the efficacy of the garden and give yourself ample options for enjoying the sunshine. When a heat wave hits, there is no better place to be than in the comfort of your own home with all of the sights and smells of the outdoors: next to the fridge and the sunshine!
