Why Build A Conservatory Pre-Winter

Updated: Jan 12, 2023

A conservatory is a great addition to a home that thousands of people around the UK consider every single year. It’s essentially an extra room in your home that you can do whatever you want with. Some people turn it into an extra living room, and some convert it into a reading nook. The possibilities are endless

Whatever the reason, there is never a wrong time of the year to build a conservatory, but some still regard it as simply a room to be used in the summertime. Here are some of the benefits and reasons why a conservatory is useful in winter, and why you should build one.

Warm roof conservatory

Warm Roofs

Many don’t think a conservatory is useful in the winter because it will be a lot colder than the rest of the house. While that can be true, if you install insulated conservatory roof upgrades, you can enjoy a comfortable temperature in your conservatory all year round. An insulated roof helps to keep your conservatory cool in the summer and warm in the winter, ideal for spending all year in your space.

Natural Scenery

Everybody loves a bit of natural scenery, whether you’re having a brisk walk in nature or sunbathing under the hot sun. Nature can be a bit less lovely when it’s cold out, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop appreciating it. A conservatory in winter allows you to get nice views of the outside world but tucked up safe and warm in your conservatory. Use a heater or radiator to make it lovely and cosy while you look out upon the cold outside.


Unfortunately, winter brings with it plenty of dead or dying plants. But you can keep your green friend alive year round in your conservatory. Outdoor plants can still thrive inside a conservatory, as they will be getting plenty of sunlight, you just have to keep up with the watering!

Easier To Build

While construction can take place all year round, the best time to build a conservatory is definitely during the dryer and slightly warmer months. It’s nicer conditions for builders to be working in, and there is less risk of delays due to bad weather. So get your conservatory build booked before the temperature drops and conditions worsen.
