Plenty of us are now looking for new ways to make the most of the spaces we have, with sparkling new conservatories being top of the list! We have been working incredibly hard to ensure our processes are Covid secure, so that our clients feel safe and comfortable throughout their project.
We are often asked the questions, ‘How do you design an oak conservatory or orangery?’ or ‘What is the process for installing a conservatory?’
In a series of blogs over the next month, we will be explaining how easy it is to design and install your new oak orangery or conservatory with Richmond Oak.
During the last few months we have been able to compile some of our most frequently asked questions put to our design team from our potential clients.
Rather than the usual list of FAQ’s you will often see, we have compiled the real questions that have been asked.
Over the last few months if you have been lucky enough to have a garden or outdoor space to help you cope with the lock down you will know first-hand the benefits this extension to your home brings to your physical and mental wellbeing.
Working safely during COVID-19 in other people’s homes – Update 15/05/20. As of Monday 11th May, We are phasing in the return to site and resuming installations of our client’s oak conservatories and hardwood orangery projects. This decision has been based on updated government guidelines related to tradespeople working within the home during COVID-19, industry suppliers/manufacturers reopening, importantly our installation team and clients being happy to do so.
The benefit of time at home – an opportunity to plan your future dream living space. With over half of the UK currently working from home. It is likely you’re spending more time in your home than ever and, like us, you might be noticing some areas of your home that could do with updating or the need for additional living space.
Without question, this has been a strange year. The main thing that we have seen trending is people taking pride in their homes. They are keen to freshen up their homes, with the housing market looking concerning for the next few years ahead. By investing in your home, it will pay off. Even if you’re not planning to move for a few years, it will still increase the value of your property and in the meantime ensure you make the most of the space available to you.
Our homes are so important to us, especially in this time of isolation. Not just a place where we eat and sleep but also where we exercise, work, entertain ourselves and take care of family. That’s why it’s a good idea to create a self care space. Your self care space at home is where you can shut the outside world out and tune inward. Having a space where you can relax and take care of yourself is so important in times like these.
