  • Setting up a dining area in your conservatory means you can enjoy beautiful garden views with every meal, turning a simple daily event into a blissful experience, all the year round.

    You can achieve a stunning conservatory dining area that’s bathed in natural light, using a glass roof, skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows. Bi-folding doors are also a popular choice for conservatories and garden rooms and completely slide apart to transform your space from an indoor to an al fresco diner in an instant, which will come in handy for all those garden parties and summer mealtimes you have planned.

    Next choose a neutral colour for the walls and floor to keep your conservatory diner light and bright and build up your look by layering on carefully chosen fixtures, fittings and furniture.

    In a cool, crisp modern conservatory, opt for a simple but elegant glass-top table and surround it with understated contemporary white chairs that blend in with the rest of the decorating scheme, allowing the greenery of the garden backdrop to shine through.

    Choose soft wooden furniture such as a bamboo-look dining set, for a county-style conservatory dining area, creating an informal and cosy place to eat for the whole family.

    A chunky limed oak table would make a striking centerpiece in the middle of a rustic garden room, echoing the natural textures of the outdoor space beyond. Introduce aromatic lavender planted up in pretty pots, plus chic tablewear to create a provincial French-inspired dining feel.

    And if you’re on a budget and want to make use of your existing dining set you just need to add a tablecloth and printed seat covers to make an impact and define your conservatory dining scheme.
