A conservatory is a brilliant addition to any home. Not only does it give you an extra room for entertaining, but it also serves as a transitional space when the seasons are changing.
Many a Spring and Autumn evening can be enjoyed in a classic conservatory room – and there are several different ways to use the space depending on your needs and wants.
Lots of people use their conservatory as an eating and lounging space, and indoor garden furniture such as wicker chairs make the perfect seating for this.
Whatever the plans for your conservatory, take a look at our ideas for making the most of this brilliant space…
Conservatories don't have to be conservative! Add a burst of colour with bold accessories and a flamboyant centrepiece set against a white backdrop.
This open-plan living space, is bathed in natural light. Light-coloured furniture with dark accents work well in this scheme because overhead windows - as well as floor-to-ceiling windows - flood the scheme with light. Wooden flooring is warm underfoot, and has a natural look that is perfect for a garden room. Neutral walls and window frames keep the look simple and modern.
Hardwearing furniture, such as the rattan pieces, are key for that authentic feel that will last all year round. This dual-purpose conservatory provides a relaxing space for living and dining areas. The exposed brick walls give this design a rustic edge, while the grey-painted doors and upholstered furniture add prettier features.
A bright and airy dining room has been created in this conservatory, with wooden touches adding warmth to the white scheme. French doors leading into the room complete this French-inspired, vintage tea room feel.
