There is one thing that binds everyone together; it is the aspiration to up the lifestyle. Your home is central to your lifestyle and defines the person you are. The house you live in should imbibe positive energy in the morning and make you feel happy as you hit the bed.
Homeowners are constantly looking to add to the comfort, curb appeal and value of their property. If you have recently added a conservatory to your home you have already added to its value and curb appeal.
Like all other areas of your home, you will need to plan out the décor of your conservatory carefully to increase its appeal.
Decorating a conservatory is perhaps a little more challenging than decorating your living room or the kitchen. Not every property has one and hence you won’t come across dozens of inspirational articles published on them every day.
Also, the styles and trends as far as conservatory decoration is constantly changing and you will need to keep an eye on the latest trends to make it chic as well as practical. What most homeowners look for are practical ideas and that too with value for money.
We’re also a huge fan of carefully selecting the right conservatory chairs that fit in line with your theme, and recently created a guide on Konservatory showing those favourite chairs. Let us explore some of the best tips to decorate your conservatory within a perfect budget.
Start with Removing the Clutter
The first step to decorating any area of your home is to get rid of the clutter. If you have had the conservatory for long you would have definitely added to the collection of furniture and artefacts. Some of these items may well be past their prime while others are no longer in trend.
Without removing all these you won’t be able to decorate the space. You can sell some of these items and use the money for the décor.
Spend on Good Curtains
While the purpose of this write-up is all about sharing budget ideas, you can make no compromises when it comes to buying curtains for your conservatory.
Given the fact that it is the large windows that define a conservatory, curtains are one of the most important décor elements.
Opt for ceiling to floor curtains and they will add that additional wow factor to space. Choose colour shades that are in harmony with other areas of your room.
Go for Cane Furniture
If you are planning to replace your worn out conservatory furniture we advise you to go for cane furniture. They are cheap and at the same time, they create that classical feel in your conservatory.
Traditionally most conservatories would have cane furniture only but in the recent decade have many homeowners had preferred wood and other materials. If you already have cane furniture all you need to do is get them cleaned and polished and replace the cushions.
Use Mirrors to Enhance Sense of Space
Not all of us are lucky to have a princely conservatory and the vast majority will need to do with small space. And if you are planning to decorate your small-sized conservatory you would want to create an illusion of a large space.
This is where using mirrors is a great idea as they tend to make space feel roomier. You can place mirrors at strategic places in the conservatory especially along the walls. Mirrors also help in reflecting natural light and making the space brighter.
Get Colourful Cushions In
If you are on a tight budget and looking for an easy update of your conservatory you can throw in some colourful cushions and it will immediately add to the colours and vibrancy of the room.
You can either choose a colour scheme that blends seamlessly with the interiors or mix or match different colour shades. The best part about using cushions is the fact that you can change them as frequently as you want without hurting your pocket.
Let Lighting Created the Mood
When we talk of decorating a conservatory, lighting is one of the most underrated elements. It’s quite obvious with all the natural light thanks to the large windows and this isn’t the first thing that would come to anyone’s mind.
But lighting is one of the best ways of creating an ambience in your conservatory and, compared to some of the other tips we have mentioned here, it is also among the cheapest. You can easily install lighting fixtures that define the mood during different hours of the day.
Add a Book Rack
There are few other places in your home that are as good for reading as is the conservatory. The natural light makes it the perfect place to read your favourite author as you sip your hot team on a cold day. A book rack doesn’t cost you much but adding one immediately spices up the décor inside.
If you are a Bibliophile you can start building a library in there, with the chance of it becoming a talking point among your friends and family.
Go for Large Rugs
We have talked about everything from the furniture to the curtains and lighting and before we wind up we must mention rugs. The floor of the conservatory is of great importance and we suggest you to go for large rugs irrespective of the size of the room as they immediately catch the attention of anyone entering the room.
Choose bright coloured rugs, even if you have opted for milder tones on your furniture and walls, as they will have to bear all the traffic in your conservatory.
To summarise, these are some of the best tips that will help you in decorating your conservatory without breaking the bank.
