Conservatories are a great addition to a home, bringing in lots of natural light and potentially adding value.
But they can be one of the hardest rooms in the house to style, with all that glass and minimal wall space. So we’ve had a look at some ways you can update your conservatory into a beautiful living space to enjoy.
1. Invest in new blinds
Conservatories can fall into the same old pattern of being too hot in summer and too cold in winter. But If you invest in some new energy – efficient blinds that can regulate the temperature in the room and reduce noise, you can enjoy your conservatory 365 days a year without having to worry about being too hot or cold.
2. Fill it with pretty things
It may seem simple, but so often the conservatory is the forgotten room in the house with miss match furniture and unwanted bits and bobs. So filling the space with more personal, loved items will automatically make it more appealing to sit and relax in.
3. Paint the bricks
More often than not the part of the house that your conservatory was built onto is still visible as bricks. Bare bricks can be a lovely bold addition to a room, but can often create a cold disconnected feeling in a conservatory. Applying a bright lick of paint to the brick wall can open up the space and create a beautiful feature wall that compliments the rest of the room.
4. Bring the outdoors in
Adding some green to your conservatory is a great way of extending the garden into your home. Leafy plants are a lovely way to create a lovely tranquil fresh feel. You could even add some patterned cushions, throws or blinds in a botanical print to bring even more of the outdoors in.
5. Add some colour
Conservatories can look a bit dull with all the glass and limited wall space. So adding some colourful furniture or accessories will make it a much more fun room to be in. Choosing one colour and incorporating it into your blinds, cushions, rugs and smaller items is a great way to brighten the room without it looking too chaotic.
