Have you ever heard the phrase, "Too much of a good thing"?  This can be true when it comes to the varieties of greenhouse designs that are available to consumers today.  From tiny little portable models to large, ornate buildings that you could practically park a plane in, there is just no end to the size, shape, material, and details of greenhouse designs from which to choose.  No wonder it can be easy to be overwhelmed!  But when shopping for a greenhouse there are just a few tips and pointers to remember so that you make the right decision for you.

For one thing, remember that many greenhouse designs might be a bit more ornate than you actually  need.  Ask yourself the reason for shopping for a greenhouse.  Are you looking for a place where you can grow plants and flowers all year long or are you looking to add to the value of your home?  If you're shopping around different greenhouse designs and are concerned with how the greenhouse will look or think that it might add value to your home then you do need to be concerned with appearance.  Many choose from the different wooden varieties of greenhouse designs because wood seems to be the most aesthetically pleasing, and because it can be painted to match your house's exterior.  Also, if you're shopping around for a lean-to greenhouse, that is, one that attaches to the side of your house or garage then you might want to opt for wood that you can absolutely paint to match so that it looks like part of the décor and not just an add-on.  Lean-to greenhouses are very popular choices when it comes to greenhouse designs because they are small and fit in even the tiniest of spaces.  If you have one of those proverbial "postage stamp" yards then you might want to consider a lean-to greenhouse for your space.

Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to greenhouse designs is the environment in which you live.  While plastic greenhouses are very lightweight and easy to assemble, they are also the most prone to bending and breaking in extreme weather conditions.  If you live in an area with high winds and other such conditions you might want to consider something sturdier.  Some greenhouse designs are meant for aesthetics rather than function so you need to be very aware of why you're purchasing a greenhouse.  If you want to use it as a separate room like a sun porch then you want something fancy and inviting.  If you're looking for something functional then you should pick from the sturdiest of greenhouse designs.

All of the variety available to you when it comes to the various greenhouse designs might seem overwhelming but it also means that you can find just about anything you're looking for.  With a little time and patience you're sure to find the right choice for you and your greenhouse.
