Adding a conservatory to your home is often considered to be a quick and easy way off extending and adding something new and fresh to your home. Whether you want to bring the outdoors in or expand your indoor family space, a conservatory has plenty of uses and purposes.
However, many people have reservations when it comes to conservatories. Even in the limited summer we have in the UK, older conservatories often get far too hot to be enjoyed, whilst in the winter months, they’re too cold to use as a seating area. Thankfully, there are now ways to change this and conservatories are no longer the draughty or ridiculously hot spaces that they once were. Modern conservatories are well insulated, secure and come in a number of different designs, meaning that luxury is much easier to achieve.
When it comes to designing a luxury conservatory, you want to ensure that it is a space which can be used as a place to relax with a view of the garden all year round, no matter the weather outside. So, if you want to transform your conservatory into a luxury space, here are some top tips to help!
Bring the outdoors in
One of the many reasons as to why conservatories are a great space is that they give you a great vantage point of your garden. If you’re someone who is particularly garden-proud, then this is likely to be a big deal for you and allow you to enjoy your outdoor space, all from the comfort of your conservatory.
If you want to truly blend both the indoors and outdoors, then why not add plants and greenery to your conservatory? Lemon and lime trees thrive especially well in the warmer space of a conservatory, whilst evergreen plants will give your conservatory a more tropical theme.
Change your soft furnishings around
If your conservatory was previously considered the “dumping ground” of the home, then it is likely that your conservatory furniture and decor is a little unloved. If you’re looking for an easy way to refresh your conservatory and make it more luxurious, then try upcycling your soft furnishings to something which suits your colour scheme. If your walls and floor is a neutral shade (white, grey or cream), then this is fairly easy to upcycle and refresh.
Brightly coloured curtains, soft throws and patterned cushions can create a new vibrant space, especially if you’re short on time or budget. If you want to create a new and luxurious look for your conservatory, then you might want to consider adding designer furniture or adding a fresh coat of paint.
Break away from traditional furniture
When most people think of conservatory furniture, the traditional rattan and wicker look often comes to mind. Whilst there are no issues with this traditional look, if you want to create a luxury conservatory space, break away from the norm and choose some modern and contemporary furniture pieces instead. Think glass coffee tables, modern sofas, clean lines and soft, simple colours. This will transform the look of your conservatory and will make it feel much sleeker and sophisticated, creating a contemporary haven where you can relax and escape.
Create a tranquil space
It isn’t surprising if you want your conservatory to be a tranquil and peaceful space where you can unwind and relax. In a busy family home, the conservatory is the ideal place if you want a space where you can get away from it all.
To create a spa-like tone, think neutral colours, comfort and natural wood tones and furniture. Get rid of any and all clutter, so that your mind isn’t distracted and avoid busy, fussy prints and colours. Make the most of the natural light that your conservatory gets and be sure to get some nice, clean-smelling candles and scents for a true spa-like experience.
