Most homeowners are aware these days that roof insulation is one of the best solutions, not only for keeping their conservatory comfortable all year round, but also to help reduce their energy bills. 

With a quarter of all of your home’s heat being lost through its roof, it’s no wonder that more people are looking into the different options on offer-especially for their conservatories which are notoriously difficult to keep at a consistent temperature. 

Not only are conservatories hard to keep warm in winter, they also suffer from passive solar gain in summer, making them too hot to sit in. While roof insulation might appear to be the obvious answer to these problems, many homeowners are asking “will I lose any light once the ceiling is fitted with insulation?”

If this has been deterring you from taking this money-saving step, it’s time to read on and find out the answer to this common concern...

It comes as no surprise that so many homeowners are deterred from installing roof insulation in their conservatory through fear that their light will be significantly reduced. The good news is that with Home Logic’s innovative conservatory roof insulation system, you usually won’t lose enough light for it to be noticeable

Natural Light – The Whole Point of a Conservatory

Conservatories can be used for so many different purposes; however, no matter what you use your conservatory for, whether as a living area, a garden room, a playroom or dining area, having lots of natural light is usually the biggest attraction. 

Of course, nobody wants to lose this benefit, so it comes as no surprise that so many homeowners are deterred from installing roof insulation in their conservatory through fear that levels of light will be significantly reduced. 

The good news is that with Home Logic’s innovative conservatory roof insulation system, you usually won’t lose enough light for it to be noticeable. 

Many homeowners won’t witness any reduction in natural light at all, and when any loss does occur, it will be, at most, a maximum of 5%, which can easily be compensated for by using a number of tricks. 

Also, since your conservatory will retain a large amount of glazing in the form of its windows, you will still enjoy lots of daylight entering your space.

Reducing the Glare from The Sun

If you’re worrying about reducing the natural light in your conservatory by having roof insulation fitted, there is an additional benefit that you should definitely consider – the reduction of sun glare that it affords. 

Many homeowners find that during the brightest days of the summer, they are unable to spend much time in their conservatory, not only because it gets too hot, but also because the light from the sun’s rays can be so bright that they cannot see their laptop screen or smartphone properly.

How Can I Get My Conservatory to Look Brighter?

If you’re worried about the effect that having roof insulation installed in your conservatory could have on your natural light levels, there are several tips and tricks that you can employ to make sure that your space stays looking bright and airy.

•    Install Spot Lights – This will increase the light sources in your space and make the room appear brighter, without being overly obtrusive. By harnessing the power of clever lighting, you can make your conservatory an inviting room to relax in, regardless of the weather outside.

•    Buy Bright Furnishings – Choosing décor and furniture in lighter colours is the best way to make the room look more spacious and vibrant. Selecting paler shades for the flooring, textiles, walls and large items of furniture, such as sofas, will open up the available space, creating the illusion of even more natural light in the process.

•    Use Mirrors – Mirrors can be your perfect weapon when it comes to making your conservatory look lighter than ever. Large mirrors and glass tables enable light to bounce effectively around your room from the reflective surfaces, making the entire space look and feel both brighter and roomier.

Action these simple tips, and you’ll find that any room will appear lighter, not just your conservatory!
