Whether it’s for entertaining guests or bridging the gap between the inside and the outside world, a conservatory is an excellent investment and addition to your home, but how much does a conservatory cost?

For those looking into the price of a conservatory, you may be surprised at how little it could cost.

To help, Konservatory recently built this conservatory cost calculator that can help you budget for your extension.

In addition to that calculator, let’s look at the current cost of conservatories and how they’ve changed over the years.

Hot in the Winter, Cool in the Summer

One of the things that many people worry about with conservatories is the increase in their heating bills.

While it’s true having that additional living space to heat will mean that you are using more gas and electricity, modern conservatories are very much built with energy-efficiency in mind.

To help keep those monthly utility bills down, conservatories can be designed to act as heat traps during winter and more refreshing spaces during summer.

There’s also a wide selection of cost-effective conservatory heaters available to help you keep your room warm even on the coldest of days.

Calculating Cost of Conservatory

There are many things you need to take into consideration when calculating the cost of a conservatory.

Before anything else, you need to decide on the size and purpose of the conservatory and space you have available for it.

Once you know the purpose and size you are looking for, you can better decide on the type. The most common types are Lean-to, Victorian, Edwardian, Gable-Fronted and P-Shaped.

Lean-to conservatories (often known as Mediterranean conservatories) are best for smaller homes and rely on simplistic design. A fully built from scratch Lean-to conservatory, with a size of 3500 x 2000mm with glass would be around £6,500-£7,500.

Victorian are one of the most popular styles of extension, however as they are more labour-intensive in their design and construction, they can be more expensive.

For the smallest size, that is 3500 x 3500mm with glass, entirely built from scratch, you could expect to pay anything from £10,500 to £11,500.

Edwardian or Georgian conservatories are another popular option; especially if you’re interested in expanding the usable living space you have access to.

They are considered a little more efficient with their use of space, compared to Victorian extensions. Following the same parameters and size as above, you could be able to get an Edwardian/Georgian conservatory for as little as £8,500 to £9,500 on average.

Obviously, the prices are an estimate, and even if you were to use the Konservatory calculator, you’d still have to contact a conservatory installation company to get a more detailed and accurate quote.

However, even a guide price is helpful when you are trying to work out, firstly, if you can afford a conservatory, and what kind of options are open to your property and available budget.

Did you anticipate these answers when you asked how much does a conservatory cost?
