The conservatory is often the one room in the house that all of us long to use, but sit in it for too long in the summer heat and you risk melting into a puddle while the winter chill will leave you frozen in place.
Due to this, for many people, the conservatory ends up being a non-functional storage room or a place to hang up your wet washing. We decided it was time to take a look at some tips on how to make the most out of your conservatory.
One of the easiest and perhaps most cost efficient ways of making your conservatory a place to relax all year around is by installing an air conditioning unit that doubles as a heater in the long winter months. This will keep one of the most picturesque rooms in the house bearable for any occasion, opening it up as another room in the house.
As many conservatories double as the storage room in many households, in order to make the most out of it you will need to find a place to store what it already sitting in the room. One great way of doing this is by making the most out of the cupboard space already available. Adding extra in cupboard shelving kits is one way to make extra storage space without the clutter.
With the temperature at a bearable level and all of the clutter out of the way, it is time for you to enjoy your new found glass room. Bring in some beautiful seating for those long lazy afternoons and a touch of nature with potted plants and flower designs. Adding some natural woods is also a great way to create a relaxing and natural atmosphere with a rustic charm. For those with green fingers, your conservatory may also be a great place to grow some herbs, creating a functional feature that will impress any guest and fill the room with a beautiful herbaceous fragrance.
