A conservatory is a fantastic addition to any home. They provide you with further living space, a space to entertain guests, and best of all, they’ll add value to your property as a whole!
However, many people who invest in conservatories find themselves struggling to make the space as homely as the rest of their home. If this is a battle that you are fighting, make sure to read on below for our top five tips!
Decorate the Space
Often, conservatories get neglected when it comes to decor. You add a table, a sofa, and a couple of chairs, leaving the rest of the space bare and uninviting.
Take the time to think about what you want to use the space for and add soft furnishings accordingly. So, if you’re looking for an extra lounge, add cosy sofas, a coffee table, a television, a bookcase and anything else that you would normally have in a living room.
Don’t forget any of the finishing touches either, such as flowers, cushions and ornaments.
Open it up to the Rest of Your Home
Why not try opening up your conservatory to the rest of your home?
If you have doors separating the conservatory from the rest of your home, see if they are removable. This will make your space appear much bigger and it’ll flow naturally like it’s part of your house rather than an extra addition.
Make the Most of Your Walls
If your conservatory has any spare wall space, make the most of it! Paint a feature wall, add wallpaper or put up some family pictures just like you would in any other room of your house.

Make the Space Cosier
Replacing your old conservatory roof for a solid replacement is possibly one of the biggest improvements you can make to make the space more homely.
A solid roof, such as a Guardian Warm Roof will allow you to enjoy your conservatory space all year round. No matter what the weather or the temperature. No longer will it be too hot in the summer or cold in the winter.
A solid roof will also give you much more privacy, and overall a feel of a home extension.
If you do choose a solid conservatory roof, make sure to call in a professional to ensure that the job is done properly. For example, Guardian Roofs Birmingham, who provide Replacement Conservatory Roofs in Telford.
Give Your Conservatory a Spring Clean
This may seem like an obvious point to make, but giving your conservatory a spring clean can make a huge difference in how the space feels. Especially if you have a uPVC, aluminium or timber conservatory, when it is left for a long time without efficient cleaning or regular maintenance, it can start to look dated.
Hire in a window cleaning company, who’ll be able to give your glass a professional clean and we promise you, you’ll be amazed by the results!
If you have a timber conservatory, try repainting the frames. You’ll quickly find that this is another easy way to make a huge difference.
Use warm lighting to create a warm and welcoming feeling within your conservatory. Having harsh lighting can seem incredibly abrasive in the winter months, so lighting such as floor lamps, pendant lights and fairy lights can look much better.
Coloured lanterns and tea lights are another excellent way to create a cosy glow. Alternatively, add a dimmer switch to adjust the brightness of the lights to suit the cosy factor!
We hope the above article has helped you to get some ideas towards transforming your conservatory from a space you never use into a much-loved cosy haven.
