Looking for a cosy connection to the outside world? A conservatory is a great way to add value and extra space to your home. However, being built primarily of glass or perspex, they’ve gained something of a reputation for being hot and humid during the summer, and drafty and cold in the winter. Now, thanks to modern insulation, your glazed space can be enjoyed all year round and with the right decor, your conservatory can be transformed into a chic, stylish space.

Furniture

Get inspired by the shades of your garden and reupholster dining chairs with pretty botanical fabrics in refreshing tones. Plenty of pattern and texture will create the ideal setting for entertaining, whatever the season. Create a cohesive scheme by painting the legs of your dining table in complementary tones for a real room transformation.

Lighting

An easy way to create ambience in your conservatory is by adding the right lighting. It’s not quite inside, but not quite out, so storm lanterns placed on the floor will look the part and draw the eye out towards the garden. For a cosy feel come evening, add LED festoon-style fairy lights and layer up the furniture with throws and cushions.

Library time?

Conservatories make great reading rooms thanks to the abundance of natural light. Transform your glazed space into a cosy nook with floor-to-ceiling bookcases, comfortable seating and warming dark wood. Add a ladder to reach the highest shelves if you want to get the ultimate library vibe.
