Adapt Your Home to the New Normal by Converting Your Conservatory

Posted by Clare Whitehall on Apr 09, 2021

Though progress is being made by the vaccination rollout in the UK, we’re far from out of the woods yet.

COVID-19 has forced a huge proportion of us into remote working. We’re unlikely to revert back entirely even when the pandemic clears. 

Converting your conservatory into a home office is a great way to dedicate a quiet place to focus while remote working.

Here’s how:

Why convert your conservatory into a home office?

Even if you go back to the office for a couple of days a week after the pandemic, having a conservatory office can make working from home easy, productive and more comfortable. 

A conservatory conversion with a warm roof turns an uncomfortable room into one that’s usable all day. Bring in a desk, a comfy chair and the WIFI router, and your work from home setup is complete!

Some of the advantages of working from a conservatory office are hard to achieve in any other way. Benefits include:

  • Separate from the house – conservatories are usually at least partially separated from the rest of the house. This allows you to have your own space to concentrate, away from distractions in the living room, noises from the kitchen, and children coming into your video conferencing calls.

  • A view of the garden – during a difficult day, a bit of greenery and sky can do wonders for stress levels. Being able to look out over a nice garden takes the edge off and reminds you to breathe, in a way that a brick or plaster wall never will.

  • Gain new space conservatories (especially those under a polycarbonate conservatory roof without proper conservatory insulation) are often neglected areas. Nobody wants to go inside during a stifling summer’s day or in the freezing winter. But after you’ve replaced your conservatory roof it’ll be comfortable again, and you can regain that space for proper use. You’re not going to lose any space in the garden or another room in the house either. You’re simply repurposing existing underused space.

Why choose a Guardian Warm Roof?

If the temperature of your office was blisteringly hot or painfully cold, you’d go and have a word with your boss. At home, if you haven’t insulated your conservatory there’s only yourself to complain to!

Short of opening a window, or pumping out warm air with an electric heater (pushing up your energy bills), it’s hard to keep a conservatory office at a bearable temperature throughout the year. However, if you replace your conservatory roof with a Guardian Warm Roof, that's exactly what you'll get.

    There are further advantages of converting your conservatory with a Guardian roof:

    • They are waterproof – glass and polycarbonate conservatory roofs are notorious for leaking. Water droplets falling on your laptop aren’t conducive to a good day’s work. Luckily, a conservatory transformation from damp den to dry haven is possible with the Guardian Warm Roof. 

    Not only is the insulated conservatory roof waterproof from the first day of insulation, but because it’s a solid roof, you won’t get cracks and gaps for leaks to occur, like you do with a polycarbonate roof.

    • They are ventilated – with a breathable internal structure, moisture can escape through the Guardian roof. This prevents damp collecting and condensation forming, which is the primary cause of mould formation in conservatories. 
    • They are fully insulated – glass and plastic panes are thin and transparent. It’s no wonder they’re useless when it comes to insulating a conservatory. For a truly warm roof, we believe Guardian is the best on the market, thanks to its multiple in-built layers of insulation. This ensures the conservatory stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer – helping reduce your energy bills in your conservatory office too. 
    • They eliminate sun glare – a transparent roof might sound nice, but on the brightest summer days, the sun’s rays will make reading your computer screen difficult. A solid roof prevents overhead sun glare, while still letting in plenty of daylight through your existing windows. 

    The benefits of a conservatory transformation with the Guardian Warm Roof will have a real impact on your ability to work productively in your conservatory office.
