Conservatories contribute to mental health and well being


A recent survey has revealed that 87 percent of homeowners say aspects of their home contribute to their positive mental health. The most popular factor was having an appealing garden or outdoor space, with 64 percent saying this was key.

Polled by YouGov and now in its 7th year, the Homeowner Survey 2019 reports on the biggest concerns and latest trends affecting UK homeowners. The results highlight the value that conservatories and glazed extensions can add – not only to a home, but to health and well-being.

Top factors include feeling safe, with secured locks and windows (60 percent), having good natural light/large windows (56 percent), peace and quiet (57 percent), comfortable temperatures (51 percent), nice views (44 percent) and lots of storage (39 percent).

“A conservatory or glazed extension, complete with bi-folding or sliding doors, meets all the main requirements that homeowners have highlighted as important elements of being happy in their home,” says Neville Gleed, Operations Director at Abcell, the fabricator that installers need to know about.

“There are great opportunities for installers to promote these positive mental health benefits to customers, helping to improve their well-being as well as their homes, and installers can get everything they need from us.

“Not only are we the UK’s largest trade manufacturer of the Guardian™ Warm Roof, we also produce and supply The Global Conservatory Roof, Stratus lantern roofs, Warmcore bi-folds, patio doors and windows, as well as the entire AluK range.

“We know conservatories, orangeries and glazed extensions are not only an ideal addition to the overall appearance of a garden but also the perfect place to admire it from.

“Homeowners can maximise natural light with a conservatory roof, lantern or solid roof with skylights – especially when combined with large aluminium windows – while the high standards of security built into windows and doors provide peace of mind and help homeowners to feel safe.

“With more than 8 in 10 people in the UK having experienced early signs of poor mental health, it’s important that we all do what we can to look after ourselves, and being happy in our homes is one of the key ways to achieve that.”
