“How much are conservatory costs in 2021?” If you are interested in expanding your property outwards with a new conservatory, this might be the first question to pop into your head. In this blog, we would be discussing the average price of conservatories here in the UK (hint: it is a lot more affordable than you think!) Hopefully, this price guide will help you make the right purchasing decision and set a realistic financial budget.

What is the average conservatory costs in the UK?

There is no one “standard” type and style of conservatory out there. This means that there is no “standard” price for a conservatory across the UK. The final cost of your conservatory installation will depend on a number of factors, the most important of which are the design specifications of the conservatory. The most popular conservatory styles include lean-to conservatory, Victorian conservatory and Edwardian conservatory. 

A 3500 x 2000 lean-to uPVC conservatory is usually priced between £7,000 and £8,000. In contrast, the average cost for a similarly-sized lean-to conservatory with a hardwood frame is approximately £13,500. If you want a traditional 3500 x 3500 Victorian conservatory made from uPVC, you can expect the cost to be between £11,000 and £12,500. A Victorian conservatory with a hardwood frame will set you back by around £16,750. A typical 3500 x 3500 Edwardian uPVC conservatory would cost anywhere between £9,000 and £10,500, and an Edwardian conservatory with a hardwood frame would cost around £14,250.

Other factors that determine the final cost of your conservatory installation

In addition to the style of the conservatory, and the type of material used, the final price of your conservatory would depend on these factors:

  • Size of the conservatory
  • Roof type
  • Windows and doors
  • Glazing options
  • Additional features, such as underfloor heating
  • Installer
  • Planning permission

The to-do list

You would not want your UK home’s conservatory project to be interrupted by any unforeseen issues. Therefore, think through before you initiate the installation process. Just so you do not forget anything, we have made a checklist for you:  

  • First, decide where you want your conservatory to be built. 
  • Research all the different types of conservatories and weigh their pros and cons. Do not get carried away solely by the outward appearance of a conservatory. It is a good idea to consider its usability and the available space you have in your home.
  • Speak to the local conservatory experts to get professional advice. They will be the best ones to give suggestions and recommendations and will also give accurate quotes. 
  • Do not forget to double-check with your local planning office to see if your projects require any special permissions. 
  • Shop around to compare conservatory costs. 
  • Before hiring any installer, recheck their past experience and ask for their previous examples of work.

Well, there you have it! We hope this price guide has given you an idea about how much you would need to save to complete your upcoming conservatory project successfully.
