A conservatory is a dream addition to the house for a number of people. Those who are looking to expand the ground floor space, or just looking to add an additional extension or room to the home would look so conservatory to really brighten up the house. Not only does the conservatory add value to the house itself, it is valuable floor space when you are looking to expand on your living space.
By the time you got planning permission and you’ve had the conservatory built, time would have been lost and a good portion of funds would have been drained. From the bay window shutters to the beautiful giant windows that you have overlooking your backyard, your conservatory is going to give you so much joy. Well, you need to make the most of the conservatory that you have spent time planning on building. Can you say that you’re getting the most out of it? Let’s take a look at all of the ways that you can get as much out of your conservatory as possible.

- Bring me outside in. If you want to bridge the gap between the outdoors and the indoors, you need to bring a little bit of nature inside. Adding flowers to your conservatory not only gives the space in colour, but it helps to marry them together. The conservatory is often used as a room that overlooks the garden, so it’s a lovely way to transition from the home to the outside. Adding flowers simply makes it stand out in the way that it should.
- Considerate colour scheme. Your conservatory should be light and airy during the daytime, but if you want to enjoy the conservatory space in the evenings, you need to consider your current lighting scheme and any lighting you like in the future. Dark skies are not going to light up this room, and a room that is full of windows is one that requires lots of natural light.
- Give the conservatory a purpose. Does it have to be a second sitting area? Why don’t you use all of this beautiful natural light to enhance your brand-new studio? With more people working from home, it could be a bright colour office that you could use. If you don’t work from home, what about a playroom? How about the dining area? The conservatory doesn’t just have to be a relaxation space.
- Make sure that you insulate the roof. If you truly want to make the most of your Conservatory then you need to make sure that the space is insulated during the cold weeks of the year. During the winter months, conservatories are often colder and much harder to heat. The noise from hail and rain can also be very overwhelming. In the summer months, the conservatory can trap heat like a greenhouse. You want your Conservatory to be comfortable to sit in, so you need to look at the current roof and whether or not it needs insolation.
