Getting your Perfect Conservatory

This is the time of the year when a conservatory makes a fantastic addition to the home. Those warm summer days are well spent in a conservatory, where you can relax and enjoy your view of the garden, whilst enjoying reading or doing craft projects for example.

Conservatories come in many different styles, so if you are considering adding a conservatory to your home, then you may want to have a look at the various styles that are available, from the traditional Victorian styles to the orangery styles which are often more like an extra room with not as much glass.

It is also worth looking into ways to keep the conservatory cool, as in the summer months especially, the sun can turn it into a bit of a greenhouse. There are lots of great ways to do this, such as using good quality blinds when the sun is at its hottest, as well as choosing flooring which will help to keep the room cool, like marble tiles. In the winter, this can also be kept warm with an underfloor heating system so you can enjoy a pleasant temperature all year round!

Furnishing your conservatory is also something to think about – you should consider how you are going to get the best use from the room before you decide on any furniture, and always make sure that you have accurate measurements so that all the furniture can fit inside it!
