A conservatory is a beautiful modern space that seamlessly ties together a home. It’s always a good idea to keep the space looking fresh and as inviting as possible, by swapping out the leaky roofs and dated décor for improved usability and style. With this in mind, we’ve collected a few ideas to help you modernise your conservatory this spring.
Upgrade your lighting
A roof lantern isn’t the only way to improve the lighting in your conservatory. Fresh new lighting may add to the room’s ambience to truly update the look of your conservatory. Soft adjustable LED lights along the perimeter of the room or a few stylish new lamps can go a long way to creating a unique atmosphere in any living space.
Change your conservatory roof
An easy way to completely transform the exterior look of your conservatory. There are many roof options to choose from, such as glass, tiled and solid roofing. Glass is a great insulator of sound and lets in vast amounts of natural light.
A tiled roof combines the best of a traditional fully glazed conservatory with all the benefits of a brick built extension. Personal preference will largely dictate which is the best option for you. If your conservatory roof is older, style won’t be the only improvement you can expect. A newer, more energy efficient material may save you money on energy bills. It may also have other benefits, such as minimising the sound of rain or a storm on the conservatory roof. A new conservatory or conservatory roof may also improve the overall value of your home.
Bring nature inside
Freshen up your room, in look and scent, by adding some greenery to your conservatory space. Conditions in a conservatory aren’t ideal for some plants, so be sure to choose the right plant for the environment.
Olive trees have emerged as a favourite for conservatories in the past few years. Olive trees require the fluctuating day and night temperatures to flower and produce fruit. If treated well, expect to see flowers and fruit throughout the summer.
Change the doors
Swapping conventional sliding doors for bi-folds are a great way to modernise your conservatory. Bi-fold doors open further than conventional doors, and this often makes a room seem larger. They’re incredibly energy efficient and come in a wide range of finishes to suit any taste and home.
