How To Decorate My Conservatory?
Conservatories are a great bit of extra space whether you are using it as an extension of your kitchen or maybe it is just another living room, whatever it is, you want to make sure it fits in with the rest of the house. This post should help you get a few ideas for how you would like to decorate your conservatory.
There is no right or wrong to painting your conservatory different colours just advantages and disadvantages. This will go over some colours that could be a good choice for your conservatory and help you weigh out the options.
White is a colour you can’t really go wrong with, it goes with everything. This allows you to switch up furniture or flooring colours all the time and it will always look great. Although this is a classic colour that could be classed as ‘plain’ that doesn’t mean you can’t add pops of colour throughout the room in other ways.
Cream, like white, works amazingly with everything really, but due to its warmer tones, it looks great with golds and soft pinks. This colour creates a warmer feel to the room when you compare it to white but it is still light enough to make the room feel open and bright.
Having a green conservatory is a great way to tie in the outside with the inside. Green has been proven to be a very relaxing colour to have in the home and it represents growth and new beginnings making it the second most popular colour after white.
Dark colours like the darker shades of grey, brown or green allow you to add depth to your conservatory. These are already rooms with a lot of light coming into them so when done correctly it can be a brilliant choice. These darker shades tend to work best on properties that are new or old houses that have been renovated to look more modern.
Whether you are considering a saffron yellow or a bright turquoise wall, these bold colours can be a great addition to brighten up your conservatory. Having a bright colour like this may mean that you will be more limited when it comes to picking your furniture, however, mixing prints and colours can be a fun way to decorate your room.
After deciding what colour you want the walls of your conservatory you need to decide what kind of flooring you want in there too. Something you need to consider is this room will vary in temperature a lot depending on the weather outside, in summer the room will get very hot due to the large amount of glass that is usually on there. In winter it has the opposite effect and the lack of insulated walls and possibly radiators can make the room quite cold. These are some flooring options that could work well in a conservatory.
Carpets are a great option for people who want to make the room feel cosier, this is great for wintertime as well as it adds that extra element of warmth to the room. However, the downside to carpets in a conservatory is maintenance, since most conservatories have a door to the outside, when people are coming in they may end up dragging mud or dirt through the room which is something to be conscious of.
Laminate flooring is a great low maintenance option, unlike carpet, if dirt from the outside was to be brought in, it can be easily washed off. As well as being easy to clean this material comes in numerous different styles and it pretty cost-effective.
Wood isn’t the most practical option to have in the conservatory however, there are ways around it. Due to conservatories having large glass windows, it can be difficult to regulate the temperature making the wood very hot one minute which makes the floorboards expand, to being very cold the next where they contract. Blinds may help to cool a room down and radiators to heat it up but this material requires a lot more thought and care than the other options.
Furnishing Your Conservatory
The last step in the process is furnishing your room. Here are a few tips that will help you get a better idea of what furniture and accessories to add into this room to really bring it to life.
Cane & Rattan
Whether you are making your conservatory into a dining room, a living room or something else, there is furniture made in cane and rattan designed perfectly for it. Cane & rattan furniture is an extremely popular option in conservatories due to its durable qualities and amazing appearance.
Since the conservatory is the room that ties together the inside and the outside, greenery is a great way to make these two places look cohesive. This room will allow plants to thrive as it will never be freezing but it also gets very warm just like a greenhouse.
