Why build or buy a conservatory?

Thinking of buying or building a conservatory or maybe confused or interested as why your friends and neighbours have opted for a conservatory which isn't, after all, a cheap home improvement? What are the benefits of buying a conservatory and do they outweigh the cost involved?

Benefits of building or buying a conservatory

Downside of having a conservatory built

So, is it worth while? For a young family with a south facing garden to be honest probably not. We're lucky in that we can afford (I hope) to furnish and have blinds fitted (plus the fact that we didn't directly pay for the conservatory as it was there when we bought the house). An older couple or one with a non-south facing garden would benefit from the extra space a conservatory would bring.
