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.

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

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

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.
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
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.
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
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.
