Top conservatory tips
If you need more space but don’t want to move home then a conservatory could be just what you need. Conservatories come in all shapes and sizes to suit different styles of home, and with an experienced double glazing firm you can rest assured that your conservatory will look great and be built to last.
But even when you have experts to design, build and fit your conservatory it is still worthwhile taking the time to think about the project and decide exactly what you want, and why.
Tell me what you want
When you first speak to a conservatory expert you should be very clear about why you want a conservatory and how it will be used. This will ensure that they design the ideal conservatory for you and create a practical space that you will love for many years to come. Be honest and you will get your perfect conservatory with the minimum of fuss.
Choose colours wisely
The colours you use in your conservatory have a big effect on the feel of the room. Light colours will work best and help to emphasise space and make the conservatory feel airy. Stick with a simple colour palette of pastel or neutral shades and use a bright or bold colour as an accent only.
Floral or botanical prints look particularly good in conservatories. They help to create the link between the interior and the garden and also hint at times gone by when a conservatory was traditionally used to grow exotic plants and flowers.
Choose your real plants and flowers wisely – some do not cope well in conservatories. Pick hardy succulents if you are not very green-fingered.
Indulge in luxury
A new room to decorate is a great opportunity to indulge in some special items. Treat yourself to some luxury fabrics for cushions, blinds or rugs. Invest in some quality key items of furniture too as you will want to use your new conservatory as much as possible.
Make the most of the space
It might take you a few tries to find the best layout for your new conservatory. So long as you have been clear about your needs from the start you should find power sockets, light switches etc in practical places, and then you can simply arrange the furniture however takes your fancy. Change things round if you are not sure and figure out what works best for you.
