Improve Your Conservatory This Summer!


During these Summer months, those of us who have a conservatory in our homes tend to enjoy relaxing in them much more regularly. Whether you are a full family or live alone, this extra space in your home works as an amazing sanctuary for relaxation in the sunshine. In this blog we are going to be sharing our top tips for improving your conservatory this Summer!



With your conservatory being a space that allows you to almost feel outdoors, why not make this part of the design and bring the outdoors in! We think that plants look brilliant in conservatories and they will of course get plenty of sunlight! An alternative is also artificial plants. While looking great, these take away the hassle of having to water your plants.



Choosing the right furniture for your conservatory is essential to it's overall atmosphere and aesthetic value. It's important to get the mix right in terms of knowing when the room is too crowded. Simplicity is key, so go for minimum furniture, perhaps two couches. Ensure your furniture matches the colour scheme and overall look of the room, to make for an aesthetically pleasing space.
