A cheap bolt-on conservatory added on to a good quality home would not add any value at all and probably would take it away. But a really well-designed contemporary conservatory added on to any kind of house will add value.

The future is bright for the contemporary conservatory and orangery market predicts a leading supplier of conservatories in the UK.
People who are looking to invest in their home and are considering a new conservatory should not cut corners in an effort to save money, though.
Spending a reasonable amount of money on a contemporary conservatory or orangery could prove a good investment in the long term. Conservatory Outlet are seeing increasing numbers of consumers turning their backs on cheaper alternatives, such as DIY conservatories, and cheaper installed conservatories from local builders.
Matthew Glover, the Managing Director of Conservatory Outlet, states, 'One of our dealers is now finding that over 50% of all conservatory sales are now either contemporary conservatories or upvc orangeries, compared to 20-30% in 2008.'
Recent reports in the media support their findings, and suggest conservatories are an excellent investment. Ratedpeople.com found that the cost of adding a good quality conservatory can be made back within five years because of the value which the extension can add to a home.
Halifax's latest Home Improvement Survey found that while the average cost of an extension is £19,922, over £25,000 could be added to the value of a property.
Matthew Glover points out that in order to make the most of a conservatory, UK homeowners need to make sure the upvc conservatory is tailored to their property. A properly planned and well-designed bespoke conservatory or orangery is the simplest way to add space and value to a home.
Mr Glover said: "A cheap bolt-on conservatory added on to a good quality home would not add any value at all and probably would take it away. But a really well-designed contemporary conservatory added on to any kind of house will add value."
Britons looking to add a conservatory to their home may want to ensure that not only do they purchase the highest quality materials, but also that they pay for a well-established conservatory company to make sure the work is planned and executed properly.
