Styling Your Conservatory Ready For Summer

Posted: Thursday, 10 May 2018 @ 11:19

With summer on its way now is a great time to get your conservatory ready for the better weather ahead. More time is general spent during the summer months in your conservatory, so let’s get it looking it’s best for fun filled days and nights. styling a conservatory

Conservatories can tend to look like a bolt on extension so let’s look at ways we can reduce this and blend the conservatory to the house.


A good way to seamlessly join the conservatory to the house is to use the same type flooring from the house into the conservatory.

However if the room that is adjoining the conservatory is carpeted, this may not be the best choice to continue into the garden room. Instead consider a different flooring choice or match the adjoining room with the new conservatory floor. Flooring that works well includes laminate, cork, natural stone, marble, slate, ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles, quarry tiles, terracotta tiles and hard wood.

Considerations of how the room is going to be used, footfall and whether the room is South facing should be taken into account. South facing conservatories tend to heat up rather quickly so cooling floorings such as stone/tiles, will help keep the conservatory cooler.

Add a rug for a little bit of warmth and comfort.


Use substantial furniture that feels like 'real furniture' which is comfortable and durable. Good choices include heavy duty wicker and chunky rattan for sofa and chair options. Oak or painted furniture works well for dining tables and chairs.

Storage should not be over looked choose pieces that match the size and style of the room, don’t use dark heavy pieces that are better suited for other rooms in your home. Consider adding multimedia entertainment so you can enjoy music.Opt for wireless systems to over come the problem of rewiring.

Window Dressing

Don’t be shy when it comes to dressing your windows; blinds, shutters and other window dressings really make a statement and can transform a conservatory into something really special. Consider how much privacy and shade you need before choosing a window option.

For those who just want to frame or soften the window panels then sheer voile curtains is a good option, however if you are wanting something a bit more substantial then fit roman blinds or shutters. Getting the window dressing right will make a huge difference, think about the colour scheme and what designs you may like to introduce i.e. patterns, stripes or florals etc.

Colour Scheme

Light, fresh, neutral tones that blend with the outdoors are a super choice for a summer conservatory. Seen from the inside or the outside this colour palette works really well within the conservatory. Bring the garden indoors by using floral wall papers and fabrics.

Personal Touches

Accessories including photos, vases, pictures and plants can really revamp a room and it’s the same principle for your conservatory. Add these special finishing touches to make your mark in the room.

Plant It Up

It goes without saying that plants thrive well and should be included in a conservatory. Take time to choose containers that shouts style and design rather than green house/potting shed. Buy containers that match and come in various sizes to display your plants, group together the pots and plant up. Once planted make sure you water them regularly to maintain their good looks.
