A recent article in the Daily Mail suggests that adding a conservatory provides the largest return of all possible home improvements for those wishing to add value to their homes. With spiraling house prices the conservatory also has the added benefit of providing additional space meaning that perhaps a move to a larger property isn't required? Another benefit over a traditional extension is that you wouldn't need to obtain planning consent so long as no more than half the area of the land of the original house is covered

You will also be exempt from rules on structure and fire safety, known as building regulations, if at least half of the new wall and three quarters of the roof is either glazed or translucent material and if the conservatory is separated from the house by external doors.
