Why not breathe new life into your conservatory and give it a little TLC?
It might have started to look a little worse for wear but, the good news is that there are plenty of ways to give it a boost! A place you love to spend time in, your conservatory deserves to be as beautiful as the rest of your home, and something that you can be proud of.
Here we reveal five top tips that may help you to breathe new life into that precious additional space in your home.
Breathe New Life into Your Conservatory with Our Top Five Tips
Upgrade the flooring
A conservatory is usually used as a place to relax and unwind so you will want luxury flooring that can withstand the conditions. Conservatories traditionally have several windows and the temperature can vary enormously from summer to winter. You will need a floor that can cope with these changing conditions. Engineered hardwood (not solid wood) is more effective in coping with changing temperatures. This is designed to adapt to the surroundings without becoming damaged.
Bamboo is also a stable product and is also natural and can easily withstand fluctuations in humidity and temperature. Luxury vinyl tiles are also a good option and are a great alternative to real wood or bamboo flooring. This is becoming more and more popular and is affordable.
Invest in a new roof
With next to no hassle, you can transform your conservatory simply by replacing the roof. Investing in a new roof on your conservatory can have a drastic effect on your heating and energy bills. Whether you choose a double-glazed glass roof or a roof with a tiled finish, with the modern-day options available, this can improve the insulating capabilities of your home quite significantly. Replacing the conservatory roof is a simple modification that can be made and can make the world of difference to the space.
How about upgrading to the Guardian Warm Roof? An award-winning style of conservatory roof, using innovative methods, it works to create the perfect environment inside your conservatory all year long.
Update the paintwork
Over time the paintwork or wallpaper in your conservatory can become a little drab and is always worth updating. Just a simple lick of paint or refreshing the wallpaper can be a great way to breathe new life into your conservatory. Simply smartening up the walls can have an enormous effect on the look and feel of your room and can often be quite a reasonably priced thing to do and will make it feel much nicer.
Warm lighting can often create a warm and inviting feeling within your conservatory – lighting such as floor lamps, pendant lamps and fairy lights can look so much nicer than harsh lighting, especially in the winter months. If you want to create a glow, lanterns and tea lights can achieve this or a dimmer switch can be installed to adjust the brightness making it cosy and homely.
Add some colour to your conservatory with indoor plants
Bring the outside in and breathe new life into your conservatory by introducing more indoor plants to your precious space. As well as introducing a bit of colour this will also provide the perfect contrast between the fresh, green tranquillity of your garden and the warm soft comforts of your home’s interior. Adding some foliage to your conservatory is a great way to liven up the room. Bougainvillea is a showy and delightful evergreen plant and can be trained and pruned to allow growth along the walls. An olive or citrus tree can also be attractive, but for the less green-fingered of you, a cactus or succulent (plants that store water in their stems, roots, and leaves) can also provide additional style.
