Somehow it’s already February and that means it’s (somehow) almost time for school’s to break up for half term (I know, already? I swear it was only just Christmas!) So, you’ve got some activities planned – a trip to the zoo, a day out with the grandparents and perhaps a visit to a local museum – however, at this time of the year the weather can limit your choices. Picnics are almost definitely out of the question and the park is probably also out of bounds – unless you fancy a bout of frost bite!
If you’re looking for a cost effective solution to keep your kids entertained this February, adding some extra space by installing a conservatory or turning your existing conservatory into a playroom could be the perfect fix and here’s just 5 reasons why…
A new conservatory or orangery will not only add space to your home but, as they are primarily made up from glass, it means you can do your housework and keep an eye on your kids – making it a safe place for your children to enjoy the half term! For an extra sense of security, why not add some bi-folding or patio doors leading in to your new or existing room so you can see exactly what’s going on!
Kids toys taking over the living room? Constantly tripping up over pieces of Lego? A conservatory will not only give your kids their own space to play and learn but also help to de-clutter your home and restore it back to the relaxing adult space you desire. Allow your kids to create their own room where they can play all day long – plus there’s space for those bigger toys you don’t necessarily want around your home, like toy kitchens (and all the plastic pots and pans and pretend carrots that come with them!), dolls houses and Hornby train sets.
Giving your children chance to interact with their siblings and school friends in their own space is important. Sure, you want to spend time with your children while their off school but sometimes you both need a break, especially if you’re working from home over the holidays. A conservatory will not only allow your children to have their own space but it means you can concentrate on your work knowing your children are in a safe place where they can freely explore their toys without distracting you or making a mess of your space. Plus, when their school friends have gone home and it’s homework time, you can relax knowing they’ve got their own space in which to concentrate and learn it without the distractions of the home.
Due to large panes of glass, a conservatory or orangery will let in loads of natural light which means your children enjoy the garden without having to embrace the turbulent winter weather! Plus, during the day this will save you money on your electricity bill as there will be no need for artificial lighting. The a-rated glass that Walkers Windows install in all our products also means the room will keep the heat in during this winter half term meaning there is little or not need for the heating to be on!
All Walkers Windows conservatories and orangeries are bespoke and there’s almost no limit to the size or design – you decide and our dedicated sales team will advise as to what will work with your home. When your children are older and outgrown their toys, you can easily switch up your conservatory into a space for your teenagers to study or have their friends round. So, whether you need a large space and a smaller one, Walkers have the solution for you!
