Small Conservatory Prices
Small Conservatories & 3×3 Conservatories.
Which type of conservatory is best to choose when adding some new space to a property can be tricky. This can be especially relevant if the area you have to build it in is a little restricted.
So how to decide which is the most suitable small conservatory & what are small conservatory prices?
Some designs just won’t suit a small space – for example most orangeries are quite large.
P-T & L shaped conservatories also need a lot of room and so it’s likely that you can rule out these types of designs immediately.
That would tend to narrow the choice down to a Victorian period or lean-to conservatory.
If we take the dimensions of a small room to be approximately a 3×3 conservatory (floor size in metres), then it may be a bit tight for a Victorian Conservatory design in order to have a comfortable space inside.
Victorian conservatories are quite rounded designs and, with restricted dimensions the inside living area, you could easily and up being compromised on your furniture choices due to the curved footprint.
It would be more sensible to maximise use of the area available by using a square or rectangular design such as a Lean-to, Georgian or Edwardian style.
Lean to conservatories also have simple roof designs, meaning a 3×3 lean to conservatory would also be suitable for a bungalow or a house with a low roofline.
Georgian and Edwardian conservatories make use of multi-sided pitched roofing.
When choosing the doors, you should also consider the way that they open, as you won’t want to have the doors interfere with the inside space. The best option would probably be a set of outward opening French Doors or a set of sliding doors.
Small Conservatory Roofing
Small conservatories, such as a 3×3 room, can sometimes get very hot in summer & cold in winter because if they are built “on a budget” then it’s likely to have a single glazed poly-carbonate roof.
You do have options to have full or part glazed conservatory roofing, and the extra cost could pay dividends in the long term because you should be able to enjoy your small conservatory 365 days a year without cooking or freezing!
A way to save space, if you are going to install some sort of heating, would be to fit underfloor heating. This can be easily installed during construction.
However, if you already had your small conservatory built, it is possible to “retro-fit” underfloor heating.
There are 2 main types of underfloor heating systems. These 2 versions are either “wet” or “dry”. Wet uses circulating water & dry uses electricity.
For a situation where you need to retro-fit (add it after the construction is finished), a dry system would probably be best suited.
A dry underfloor system (once installed) will not raise the floor level as much as a wet system will, and can usually be installed less intrusively.
