Conservatories are one of the best ways for homeowners to add value to their property, however styling can be a problem. When it comes to choosing wall and floor coverings, and weighing up whether you should buy wooden furniture or quality rattan direct from a reputable supplier, you may value some tips.
Here, you can find the top 5 style tips to get your conservatory looking fantastic, helping to make your home look and feel great and improving its appeal. From choosing the right accessories to choosing a design theme, our handy hints will make the process of decorating your conservatory a breeze.
Most conservatory types lend themselves well to a modern design theme, and since conservatories are airy and bright, using sleek and sharp lines together with a pale colour palette will give the space a contemporary aesthetic which is cool, welcoming and pleasant to sit in. One way to bring an even more contemporary look is to pair vibrant blinds with neutral walls and floors.
Perhaps you’d prefer a more rustic theme? Using wooden furniture, gingham patterns and a more natural colour palette such as browns and greens will give a gorgeous country look. This works especially well in a wood effect conservatory, and helps to blend the edges between indoors and outdoors.
If you have a traditional Elizabethan or Victorian style conservatory, the classic look is especially well suited, resulting in a sophisticated and stylish place in which to relax. Cool leather chairs and sofas, dark wood furniture and plush drapes combine well into a comfortable retreat with plenty of luxurious elegance.
There are many influences for your conservatory colour scheme, with personal taste being just one. Looking at the size of your space is also important, as using the wrong colours can make your space feel smaller and more cramped.
If you have a larger floor space and a high ceiling, dark tones work well, especially thanks to the large glass windows of the conservatory. However, it’s important to remember that the darker the colours, the more heat is absorbed meaning that your room could become very hot on sunny days. Pastels and pale shades are often more popular for conservatories as the effect is more natural and airy, in keeping with the garden feel and the will also feel cooler.
Most conservatories are at the back of the house, and usually have a door leading directly into the garden. Although carpeting may feel luxurious, it could easily get very dirty in this type of space, so choosing a hardwood or veneer floor may be a better choice. Choosing wooden or veneer floors in a light colour will help to stop them from becoming very hot during the summer.
Conservatories are the ideal place for socialising and relaxing, so choosing comfortable furniture is essential. You will need to select pieces which resist sunlight exposure well, however, since the large number of windows in a conservatory could cause the light to fade furniture over time.
The best furniture types of conservatories include fabric upholstered, wooden and rattan pieces since these can resist light exposure. Rattan sofas, such as those sold by Rattan Direct, are stylish yet comfortable and look fantastic in a conservatory space. A small, glass topped table is also a good choice for making the space appear larger while still offering the convenience of somewhere to place your drinks. Rattan Direct stock matching coffee tables that will pair beautifully with your sofas.
The final step in styling your conservatory is to choose the perfect accessories to bring your flair and personality into the space. Pot plants are the perfect addition to any conservatory, since they reflect the natural vibe of your garden, however vases of flowers and floral details on cushions and drapes also incorporate the natural theme beautifully.
Alternatively, why not adopt a neutral approach with creams and beiges paired with pops of vibrant colour in the form of cushions, ornaments, blinds or rugs. You can make a dramatic statement with one focal piece, such as impressive sculpture, or alternatively, go for a co-ordinated approach. The choice is up to you, so be as creative as you like.
