Conservatory uses for the retired





A conservatory can be a great addition to any home, and if you are retired then you are in a great position to get the most out of the extra room and options a conservatory, sunroom or orangery can offer.


If you are one of the many people in the UK who like to enjoy their garden, both in terms of gardening and just enjoying your outdoor areas in the summer months then a conservatory could be the perfect option for you as a way of gaining extra square footage from your home.


"Retired people are well placed to get the most use from their conservatories" say Richard Harvey of "They have the time and now the space to spread out and follow their interests."


If you do enjoy gardening a conservatory can be a great transition area between your home and garden, most conservatories consist of easy clean surfaces such as tiles and UPVC so if you dirty from your gardening, this room can be a great place to step into and clean yourself up so you don't tread soil and general dirt through your home.


Once you have got your garden looking ship shape, your conservatory is the best place to sit and enjoy the fruits of your labour, the double glazed units allow you to enjoy the sun in the summer months and keep you out of the cold in the winter while you still enjoy the views of the outside. You can happily sit and enjoy your plants and outside areas and keep an eye on the visiting wildlife without disturbing them.


While you are enjoying the views there are many other things you could be using your conservatory for. They are a great place to enjoy hobbies and crafts without having to mess up your main home and it also offers you a more scenic setting to get the creative juices flowing. You could create some works of art, do some knitting or even use the space as an appealing exercise area.


Most Conservatories have a decent size floor area, and that area can be used as a great place to keep active whilst being surrounded lovely views of your outside area. Perhaps you could use the space for an exercise bike or a treadmill and put in some miles all from the comfort of your own home.


Another great use for a conservatory could be a children's play area, if you have grandchildren then they can make great use of a conservatory too. It's a great space for them to practice arts and crafts without making a mess that's impossible to clean. A conservatory is a good place to set up larger toys such as train or fort sets and dolls houses, you can let them play to their hearts content without making a mess of the main home but still safe indoors where you can keep an eye on them.


A conservatory, sunroom or orangery can be of great use to a retired person, even if it is just a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax, you might soon find yourself spending more time in the conservatory than anywhere else in your home.
