There are countless benefits of adding a conservatory to your home. From the extra space it brings for you and your family to the added value it offers to your property , conservatories are a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, whatever the weather. Whether you’ve just had a new conservatory fitted or your existing conservatory is in need of a spruce up, take a look at these top decorating tips and breathe new life into your sunroom.
Made up of large floor to ceiling windows and a glass roof, conservatories allow in masses of natural light. This is great for when you want to bask in the sun and shine a light on the room, but when things get a little too bright or you’d like some privacy, opt for blinds to dull those powerful rays.
A conservatory is the perfect place to sit and really enjoy the colours of your garden in summer. However, sometimes they can become too hot. Choosing a specialist fabric for your conservatory blinds means you’ll be able to regulate the temperature and maintain a comfortable atmosphere during the warmer months.
Hillarys made to measure blinds offer the perfect solution, providing all round coverage, tailored to the room’s specifics.
Ooh la la
Use soft white furniture to add a little French charm to your conservatory. Elegant table chairs with plush velvet cushions around a chic table will add Parisian appeal at ground level, whilst chandelier lighting will add sophistication from the top. Add a touch of colour with cute potted plants and accessories, but keep things minimal for true French-style.
Bring the outdoors in
Thanks to its prime location right in your garden, your conservatory is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. But why not up the alfresco anti and bring a little of the outdoors in? There are a range of large and small indoor flowers and plants that can brighten up your conservatory, such as bougainvilleas and begonias, which will thrive in the direct sunlight the room offers. Aside from foliage, you can furnish the space with natural materials, such as wooden and rattan designs for an outdoorsy feel.
Create a countryside-inspired conservatory by adding a few simple features, such as a rustic-looking dresser painted white and lightly sanded for a touch of vintage. If you have the space, an antique garden table will add to this overall theme and acts as the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast. For a cosier country feel, why not introduce a comfy sofa into your sunroom? Make sure it comes complete with plenty of cushions in various floral and checked patterns for a retro, quirky feel.
