Five Factors to Consider when Planning Your Conservatory

When considering the addition of a conservatory to your Swansea home, it is crucial to plan ahead. The more carefully you plan, the more likely you will be satisfied with the final installation.

This experience has armed us with the knowledge necessary to plan every conservatory project meticulously. When you work with us, the end result will surely be the stunning living space of your dreams.

In this blog, we will discuss five factors you must consider when planning your conservatory.


First, you must consider why you want a conservatory and what you want to use it for. While home extensions can completely transform your living space, they are most successful when you know what role they will serve. You can use your conservatory solely to add space to your Swansea home. Perhaps you are happy in your current home and may not wish to undergo the hassle of moving, but you need more space due to a growing family. Or perhaps you work from home and want a sunny and airy office space? A conservatory is a versatile space that can be used as a living space, office space or anything else you can probably think of. With such versatility, it should be simple to determine the purpose of your conservatory.

Planning Permission

Conservatories in Swansea are typically installed without the need for planning permission. However, even if your conservatory does need planning permission, Affordable Quality Windows will liaise with the local council’s planning department on your behalf and submit all necessary applications. We ensure that each conservatory we install complies with current building regulations, so you can be secure in the knowledge that your home extension is in competent hands.


It is an often-overlooked factor, but the position of your conservatory is important — so you should plan accordingly. If your conservatory faces north, it will likely be quite chilly in the winter. You can resolve this issue by installing a heating system in your conservatory. On the other hand, if your conservatory is south-facing, it will certainly become rather warm during the day. When the temperature goes up a little too high, integral blinds and air conditioning systems can help. You can also install bi-fold doors for optimum ventilation and to really let the outdoors in.


The conservatory style you choose will be determined by your own preferences and the architectural style of your Swansea home. Affordable Quality Windows supplies and fits a variety of conservatory styles, including Edwardian, Victorian, Lean-to, and Gable. Additionally, we provide Superlite tiled roof conversions that come with various tile, skylight, and lighting options and can be customised to meet your specific requirements.
