Conservatories increase the value of your property, create additional living and entertaining space, offer expansive views of your garden and are the perfect place to sneak a snooze after a hearty Sunday lunch – the benefits to a conservatory are seemingly endless.
However, we also appreciate that choosing to add a conservatory to your home is a big decision. Once you’ve committed to it, you need to start thinking about how you’re going to decorate and furnish the space in order to maximise its potential. To help you out, here are some of our top design ideas for creating a bright and airy conservatory.
If you’re looking forward to enjoying a spot of afternoon tea in your brand new conservatory, then opt for a quintessentially English countryside-inspired design. Keep things light by utilising plenty of cream tones, wooden furniture and the odd splash of gingham.
Bring the outside in and further blur the lines between your conservatory and the outdoors with some greenery. You don’t need many potted plants or indoor shrubs to brighten up the room – bonsai plants can be a good option if you don’t have masses of floor space. Or how about a selection of sweet succulents arranged on your windowsill?
Have you found a sofa to go in your conservatory? Or perhaps a bespoke dining table made from reclaimed driftwood? Choose a focal point for the room and make it the star of the show. The key to keeping things airy is to not have too many trinkets lying around – less really is more when it comes to conservatories.
Darker colours absorb heat, which will most likely make your conservatory uncomfortably warm to sit in for an extended period of time. Instead, choose pastels and creams to decorate your sunshine-filled room. Lighter colours make spaces seem bigger, too – perfect if you’re working with a smaller room.
There are few things more exciting than getting the opportunity to decorate a space from scratch – and we hope that our tips help you do so. We also think a new conservatory provides a wonderful chance to add an injection of your own personality into your home.
