Can you have a conservatory that’s light and warm?

Conservatory refurbished with a Metrotile Lightweight Roof System Shingle Charcoal

With a conservatory, it can be difficult to design a room that’s usable all year round. Typical conservatories can often be a suntrap in the summer, and freezing cold in the cooler months, making a very impractical room. They can also be quite dingy in the dark winter. There are some design elements you can implement for your own conservatory, in order to make it both light and warm, and comfortable to enjoy throughout the year.

Conservatory roofing

Traditional conservatory roofing, made from polycarbonate sheets, is not ideal for a roof. It can be very loud when it’s raining, causing the room to be quite unpleasant to sit in when the weather is not perfect. Polycarbonate sheets don’t retain any heat either, so they do not insulate the room and this is why conservatories tend to be very cold during winter.

To combat this, you can get lightweight solid roofing installed on your conservatory. This conservatory roof replacement is a much better insulator, which will keep your conservatory a warm temperature all year round. It also means you’ll be spending less on your energy bill in order to heat the room.

Natural lighting

Solid roofing not only increases the warmth of your conservatory, but also gives you the option for more natural light. Skylights can be installed into the roof tiles, which makes your conservatory a much lighter room, even in the dark winter months. This allows you to make use of your conservatory all year round rather than just as a summer addition to your home.

Metrotile also offer a wide range of lighting options that can be fitted in a solid conservatory ceiling, if you’d like as much light as possible.
