Whether you've lived there only a year, or for twenty, it is always good to change or improve various features around the home. More than just redecorating, you can improve the house’s value and, most importantly, create a new image more in line with your personality and tastes.
With Anglian Home improvements, many of these options are a very real possibility, especially in terms of double glazing and conservatories. If you're looking to improve your house in either of these areas, then here is a quick guide on the basics.
One of the more common and practical methods of improving the home, double glazing has many benefits. For one, it is a great form of noise reduction. If you live in a busy area, such as next to a main road, you will no doubt appreciate this; the extra layer of air between the glass panes makes for an excellent sound buffer.
Likewise, this cushion of air also creates great insulation. It’s a well known fact that single glazed windows are one of the easiest ways to lose heat out of the house. With double glazing, you won't need to use the heating as much, since it is being contained in the house better. This obviously leads to more savings in your heating bill.
If you're looking to change your windows, then going the extra mile for double glazing is both a practical and financially efficient idea, as they will earn the money back over time in savings.
An effective method of expanding the house and creating extra space, conservatories are unique in their ability to bridge the gap between the comfort of indoors and the atmosphere and peacefulness of the outdoor garden.
Key to this is the strong use of glass. A typical conservatory makes the most use of glass to enable a greater amount of natural light. This gives an amazing sense of openness and nature that can't be found in other areas of the house. On warmer days, the glass helps the warm light come through. With doors leading out to the garden, the conservatory can also act as a separate back entrance as well.
Conservatories come in a range of styles and designs. They can be built in various shapes and sizes; so they will fit nearly any house. There are also lots of glass designs, from clear to stained, to choose from, allowing maximum customisation so you can have a conservatory made for your personal needs.
Furthermore, there is the more unique appeal of orangeries. These conservatories use a blend of modern materials and glass to create a more uniquely visual addition to your home. The choice of bricks, woods and other materials allow you to better blend the conservatory into the rest of the house, as well as adding a heightened sense of traditional elegance.
There is still a strong use of glass, of course, so an orangery still functions like a typical conservatory. The added comforts come in the aesthetics and luxury of the materials; by blending into the home, your new orangery can also serve as a more traditional living space when required.
