It’s amazing what a bit of hoovering, polishing and decluttering can do; not least give you a reminder of why you fell in love with the house in the first place.
If you own a conservatory, it should have been included in your annual spring cleaning spree. Once suitably scrubbed from top to bottom, you could alter and upgrade its interior in time for summer to make it the hottest room (not literally) in the house.
As a long-standing supplier of conservatories, we can give you some quality pointers to help you do it…
For many people, their conservatory is a place for unwinding and switching off from life. In order to do that in comfort, they need the right sort of furniture and their sofa, armchair etc. must also look aesthetically-pleasing if they like inviting other people to come and join them relaxing. Sound like your sort of lifestyle? Our biggest piece of advice would be to neglect leather furniture as it fades easily when exposed to the sun and stick to upholstered, wooden or rattan furniture due to it being able to cope with humid conditions.
A carpeted floor is the last thing you want if your extension has a door connecting it to the garden unless you can be certain everyone will take their shoes off before they enter back into it from the outside. It can be a nightmare trying to get muddy stains out of a carpet. Dirty footprints will be less of a worry when you have engineered wood flooring, laminate flooring, vinyl flooring or tiled flooring installed as you can get out your mop and wash them away.
A fresh new colour scheme could be what your conservatory is crying out for the most. Light colours are best suited to conservatories as you want to enhance the notoriously airy feel inside of these extensions, not take it away from them. For a light colour that’s right on trend, check out ‘Spiced Honey’, Dulux’ Colour of the Year for 2019. Described by them as “a warm amber tone, inspired by the beauty and versatility of honey itself”, you can currently find all sorts of soft furnishings and luxury items in this most versatile of colours.
You will want to use your conservatory long into the night when entertaining guests at a weekend, but you can only do that if it is illuminated properly. Think carefully about the sort of mood you want your lighting to help generate. When there is an internal pelmet within the ceiling, you can have integrated spotlights added, and when there isn’t, you could fit mounted wall lights onto a solid wall within the structure.
