View Archive Ten Ways to Improve Your Conservatory 6 June 2011

The great thing about a conservatory is that you can use it as an extra room and improve the interior to your satisfaction. This article looks at ten ways that you might improve your conservatory. One of the easiest and quickest ways to improve the look and comfort levels of your conservatory is to add some new conservatory furniture. Modern conservatory furniture is extremely versatile and includes sofas, chairs, coffee tables and side tables. Rattan conservatory furniture is extremely popular because it is long lasting, comfortable and brings a touch of the outdoors inside. Scatter cushions in toning colours are another way of brightening your conservatory and making it more comfortable

If you like the idea of making more connection between your conservatory and garden then you may want to consider painting the walls in colours that reflect that idea. Pale blues and greens are great in a conservatory and if you want a warmer look you could go for the golds and browns of autumn. Conservatory blinds make a great addition, particularly if your conservatory gets overheated on hot, sunny days. In the evenings curtains will give you more privacy, which is ideal if you want to use the conservatory as a dining room or spare bedroom. Choose window dressings that are bright and colourful if you have plain walls, if you have chosen wallpaper for your conservatory then choose one of the colours from it for things like cushions and window dressing.

The right flooring is something that will improve any room. If your conservatory is cold during the winter months then you may want to consider some under floor heating, if that is too much of an investment at the moment then carpets and rugs always make a room feel more comfortable. Lighting is important in any room, and that includes the conservatory, evenings are much more relaxing with subdued lighting and this can be achieved either with wall lighting or table lamps. There are many ways that you can improve your conservatory and make it somewhere that you love to be.
