Do you aspire to add a room to your home’s ground floor? Do you want it to provide an alternative for family gatherings or evening entertaining while still being usable, and fashionable? How about some great suggestions for designing a chic conservatory?
A conservatory is an easy and often affordable way to do that, if that’s what you want to do. As with many things, the design of the conservatory has come a long way. When it comes to choosing one, you’ll find that there are plenty of options available. At Glassier, we offer conservatory styles such as ‘Lean-To’, ‘Victorian’, ‘Edwardian’, ‘Combination’, Roofed and Orangeries.
If you already have a conservatory in your home, you might be interested in some decorating suggestions. The next time you redo the space, at the very least, these suggestions might be helpful.
Treat it like any other room in your house
A conservatory is a great way to add extra space to your home, but it can be tricky to make it feel like a cohesive part of the house. One way to tackle this problem is to furnish the conservatory in your typical decor style. This will help the room blend in with the rest of the house, and it will also make it feel more comfortable and inviting. You can use your conservatory as an extension of your living room, dining room, or even your home office. By furnishing it in a way that complements your existing décor, you can create a space that feels like it’s always been there.
Purchase the best blinds you can afford
Blinds are the ideal solution for controlling the amount of light and heat that enters the conservatory, and they can also help to reduce glare on computer screens and televisions. There are many different types of blinds available, so it is important to choose one that will suit the specific needs of your conservatory. Whether you opt for traditional wooden blinds or more modern roller blinds, investing in some good quality blinds will help you to make the most of your conservatory all year round.
Keep the sun at bay
Once you have some good blinds installed, think about how you can use them to shield your furnishings and accessories from sun damage. If you can’t or don’t want to lower the blinds, try moving the sofas and tables or soft accessories out of the way or covering the backs with throws to prevent fading.
Add some greenery
This is the one area where you can go completely plant-crazy. When paired with some conservatory shutters, plants may give your room a somewhat tropical feel because they contrast beautifully with outdoor or natural textures such as wood.
Use the space effectively
Avoid designing a space that is used for so many different purposes that it resembles a landfill. Although it is very tempting, using this extra room as a storage space won’t maximise its potential, and you’ll end up regretting it. Make sure you define the space and use it for what you intended.
Embrace the space
If you use some of the aforementioned advice, you’ll be delighted that you’ve built or inherited a conservatory and will enjoy having the extra room. The way you host and welcome visitors will change for the better as a result. By embracing the space, making the most of it, and beginning to live in it, you’ll feel calmer and more at ease overall.
