Decking or Conservatory – Which Would Be The Best Option?
  • Opening Intro -

    You are probably deciding about the best options to utilize the outside space of your home, however you may not be able to decide between having a decking or building a conservatory.

    While decking could prove to be a great way to help utilize the garden during summer, a conservatory has the major benefit of being practical throughout the year and helps to best utilize your space.

    So, which one should you choose?

-------------------------------------

Choosing a Deck

Decking could be a great way to convert your garden into something more practical and also for creating an area that is almost perfect for outdoor entertainment. It could be fairly affordable with lots of available options, thus giving you the freedom to build the decking of any shape or size. Decking could be a great option for having BBQs in the summer giving you an outdoor living area that is functional in the garden.

Having said that, I would also like to draw attention to the number of issues that are involved in having a decking in the garden. You will be required to constantly maintain the decking in order to keep it protected from harsh weather and also prevent it from wearing out. This could be both costly and time consuming. If you are planning to use the deck to dine in the deck, again this could invite problems for you as food and scraps could inevitably fall through the gaps inside the decking and it could attract mice/rats, something that no one wants to see, especially when they have small children.

There are also other factors that may not allow you to use your deck in certain weather conditions such as rain and snow, meaning that the space is not going to be utilized throughout the year.

Choosing a Conservatory

Conservatories, on the other hand, could be used for any function from a leisure activities rooms, or a dining room, to a kitchen. They could be utilized all the year around no matter how harsh the weather conditions are as they are more durable and weatherproof, meaning that they are cheaper and quite easy to maintain.

A conservatory or an orangery conservatory, is an investment to your existing home that adds thousands of pounds to the value of the home. It is also more durable that the decking, making it more cost effective in the long term. Installing both the decking and the conservatory will help you in enjoying the garden. This gives you the option to incorporate both into the design.

So, you are now probably baffled about the best option for your extra garden space. You could try exploring all the options keeping in mind the requirements and the budget, in addition to the maintenance needed by both the options to arrive at a decision. Both decking and conservatory have their own respective utility and you need to sit with your family and discuss the needs and what exactly could you set up in a conservatory. We have tried to specify the advantages and disadvantages of going with both the options, however we strongly recommend a thorough research, discussion with family and the vendor before deciding.

You could come up to a compromise by having a conservatory garden room that could seamlessly open the doors to a carefully planned decking. This is possible with the help of the bi-folding doors that could fold back to allow the flow of both the spaces into one multi-functional area, thus enabling you to enjoy the best of both the worlds.
