A conservatory in your home is a perfect addition to make it more relaxing. This is good whether you are currently thinking about remodelling or simply want to add a dash of beauty to your already appealing home. Aside from the extra living space and added appeal, it also serves as a buffer between your home’s inside and outside areas.
A hardwood conservatory is actually better than other types of conservatories. It is more efficient in trapping the heat of the sun, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors even if you are actually indoors. Here are some advantages of using hardwood for your conservatory:
You cannot go wrong with wood because it is an eco-friendly and renewable resource. Hardwood is a thermally efficient material, making it easier to keep the heat inside your conservatory even in cooler weather. This means it requires less heating and is even capable of acting as the sole solar heater for the entire house.
Resistant and Durable
Most hardwood conservatories are weather resistant and can adapt to any climate. The higher the oil content, the better its capacity to withstand different weather elements. Hardwood also has higher durability and lasts longer.
Hardwood has a classic appeal because it was traditionally used during Victorian times. Hardwood also looks more natural and will blend with the outdoors areas better. It is also flexible, giving you unique choices on how to give it a finish, such as staining, varnishing, or painting. Hardwood also requires little upkeep and maintenance.
