Conservatories are a great way to extend your living space and deliver a relaxing, comfortable way to enjoy your garden. Essentially, they’re a way of providing your home with more space for you and your family; something that you might desperately be in need of! Much easier to obtain than an extension or even moving home altogether, a conservatory is a brilliant solution for many properties.
Unfortunately, conservatories very quickly became a space that doesn’t get used, instead becoming a storage area for unused furniture and odd bits and pieces. This is mainly down to many conservatories falling victim to extreme temperatures. Thanks to its glass roof and lack of proper insulation, conservatories are normally overly warm, or incredibly cold.
So, how do you get the most out of the room and turn it into a space you love?
Find its purpose
A conservatory can be used for so many different things; it doesn’t just have to be a sitting area or a second lounge. If you know that your home is crying out for a particular space, use your conservatory!
For example, many homes don’t have the space for a dining room, or some households may require a home office. Your conservatory provides the perfect opportunity to create a room you’ve always needed; simply change the set-up and decorate appropriately, and you have a ready made room.
Insulating the room
Since one of the biggest problems with conservatories involves the temperature, you could take extra steps to insulate the room. One of the most impressive ways to improve your conservatory is to replace the roof. Sounds like a big job? Replacing your conservatory roof is a simple and effective job that makes the world of difference to your conservatory.
If you opt for a solid tiled roof, you will have a conservatory that is not only incredibly energy efficient, but also a comfortable temperature all year round.
Redecorate the space
Sometimes a room just needs a little bit of TLC. If you’ve had your conservatory for some time, you might find that you just need to breathe new life into it. Interior design trends change all the time and often the look of a room can become outdated.
So, if you find yourself not enjoying your surroundings as much, you can transform the room with a new lick of paint and even some new furniture to liven up the place!
Whether you’re a fashion follower or you simply just have a few favourite looks in mind, it’s easier than you think to redecorate your conservatory and make the room feel new again.
Make it fun
Sometimes conservatories can be used as the overspill room for guests when you have family and friends over. Make the effort to use your conservatory and make it the focal point when you are hosting an event. For example, in the summer, if you have a BBQ or garden party then ensure your conservatory is in tip top condition for those who want to duck out of the sun or simply sit and relax for a while!
Remember, whichever way you use your conservatory this year, make sure it’s the perfect space for you and your family.
