Getting the flooring right in your conservatory will really help to lift and define your space making it look extremely smart and special.
And in a high-traffic conservatory, which will no doubt see more than its fair share of muddy footprints, you’ll require an easy-to-clean hardwearing flooring that can stand up to the constant toing and froing from the outdoors, in. Non-scratch tiles or good-quality laminated and vinyl floorings are ideal options, whereas carpets and solid wood panels can easily mark up and stain.
Or turn your small conservatory into a cosy bolt hole from the outside world, using statement flooring to demarcate an open-plan living area from the garden. Consider laying down smart, brightly polished white tiles to keep your conservatory light and bright and introduce sleek modern furniture in neutral tones, layering on colourful accessories to liven up your decorating scheme.
And if you want to create a modern country look in a lean-to conservatory, go for dark-grey slate flooring against white walls and accessorise with light-grey seating and furniture to balance out the contrast of light and dark.
Decorative, traditional Edwardian tiles look beautiful in a country-style conservatory, which opens out onto a picturesque English country garden.
Create a modern country look with a lean-to conservatory. A sloping glass roof allows plenty of light, while dark slate flooring is durable and smart. Team with an upcycled dresser, eye-catching table and soothing fabrics for relaxed, contemporary style.

While conservatories make great dining rooms, it can be tricky to make all that glass feel inviting. Maximise the outdoor feel with a botanical print wallpaper and warm wood furniture, and choose a matt floor in stone or ceramic so that it's easy to clean.

Cheery, sun-kissed colours are an instant way to give your conservatory a lift. Start with a pale primrose wall paint, then add fabric panels in yellow and white for a more casual alternative to curtains. Continue the relaxed, outdoorsy feel with rattan furniture - its a practical choice for a family room, as well as adding texture and interest. Complete the look with a soft rug, and plenty of scatter cushions for a homely scheme.
