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 to ensure the space is comfortable and able to be enjoyed all year round. Homeowners can do this by swapping out their old conservatory roofs and outdated décor for improved usability, energy efficiency and style.

Although additional single-story living space is always handy, replacing an old conservatory can seem like a daunting task. Improving and modernising your existing conservatory can sometimes be just as effective and more budget-friendly.

Maybe it’s the sound the plastic conservatory roof makes in the rain? Maybe it’s the overpowering, uncomfortable heat during the summer? For whatever reason, we often find that homeowners struggle to enjoy their old conservatories, especially if it has a polycarbonate roof. Read our top five tips for modernising your conservatory and create a space you can enjoy all year round.

With this in mind, we’ve collected a few ideas to help you modernise your conservatory this spring.

Upgrade your lighting to modernise your conservatory

Roof lanterns are an increasingly popular choice for both conservatory roof replacement and on new build glazed extensions. They create a raised ceiling at the centre of your conservatory, giving a bright and airy feel to the room. You can install skylight windows into your roof lantern to create a regular airflow around your home and eradicate any problems with damp and condensation.

A roof lantern isn’t the only way to improve the lighting in your conservatory. Fresh new lighting may add to the room’s ambiance 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.

Modernise your conservatory roof

Red tiled roofAn 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 to modernise your conservatory

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.

Modernise your conservatory doors

uPVC bifold doorsSwapping conventional sliding doors for bi-fold doors 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.

Brilliant company from all we’ve dealt with, right through to the fitters, to the follow-up emails making sure everything was ok. Having used you before and after having work done to my property, I thought you the only obvious choice to return. Was a little worried as I’d had insulated render fitted and was concerned about the removal and refitting into the same size opening, and the damage it would cause. No worries, it seems. Each to their own trade as they say, and I’m glad they managed it and left me in no doubt, another great job done. Many thanks to you all. And see you in 15 years again?

After a fair few months of looking for a good window provider we can say we are one hundred percent happy with Global. They exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Michael with the quote, the lovely ladies from the office and Andy and Josh who fitted our seven windows and front door. Very professional, good quality, quick and efficient work. A pleasure to work with such a team. Our next step is the conservatory with Global. Thank you and well done to all.

Excellent Service

My mum wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service Global windows have given her following her burglary. From start to finish they reassured her the replacement patio doors would be robust and fitted as quickly as possible to ensure the property was secured. On the day of fitting the fitters arrived promptly and installed the doors with no mess. The gentleman who organised this from Global (sorry she couldn’t remember his name) came out to check the doors and to see mum was happy with them brought her a beautiful bunch of flowers. Mum was over the moon. Thank you so much.

We decided to re-use this Company despite moving house and County. Global were helpful and very professional at all stages of the installation. We found all their staff friendly and knowledgeable. Dates given, returning phone calls etc. were all met. The price was very competitive, the quality of their products was excellent with a good range of colours and styles. The fitters were very hardworking, managed to get the work done in one day rather than the expected 2, mainly due to the fact they worked as a team, didn’t take breaks and clearly knew their job. Great company.
