Creative conservatory ideas for your home

Conservatory decor ideas

Conservatories are great spaces to enjoy, especially during the sunnier months. Not only do they act as a gateway to your garden, they provide a comfortable place to dine, work or simply relax. If you're not sure what to do with this space, here’s some tips to get you started.

Getting your conservatory summer ready

Give it a spring clean

Summer is a peak time for conservatories. Therefore, it is a good idea to get your conservatory in order before the warmer weather hits. Clean the outside first, then tackle the inside with whatever cleaning products you have around the house.

Add some colour

Give your conservatory furniture a seasonal update by swapping out your soft furnishings with some summery accessories. Think floral scatter cushions, mustard tassel throws and richly textured rugs. These little finishing touches can breathe new life into the space.

The summer months are the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. So why not transform your garden into a second living room. From daybeds to loungers to full patio sets, there are many ways to make this space as comfortable as the inside of your house.

Conservatory sofa

With a sofa and some cushions, you can turn a conservatory into a comfy, sitting room. This cosy addition offers extra space to lounge, and also provides a place for you and your family to retreat to after a day spent in the sun.

Use it as a dining room

Create a spot for a light meal by adding a dining table and a few chairs. Usually, a round table is more flexible than a rectangular one when it comes to space. Position the table in full view of your garden so you can enjoy the tranquil outlook while you eat.

Create an office space

A conservatory can become a modern home office with the addition of a desk, filing cabinet and practical office chair. As well as providing a quiet place to work, you’ll also get great views of your garden and lots of natural light.

Furnishing a small conservatory

If your conservatory is quite compact, consider stripping back the furniture to the bare essentials. Look for pieces with clean lines and minimalistic shapes to keep the space open and airy. Flexible multifunctional designs are also handy, as they can serve multiple purposes.

Have fun with furniture

When furnishing a conservatory, you may wish to opt for a different décor scheme than the rest of your home. Use woodland inspired designs, check prints and wooden furniture to create the perfect rustic retreat. Or, if you prefer something more modern, try a minimalist theme with clutter-concealing cabinets and clean-lined Scandi style furniture.

Quick conservatory hacks

Bring the outside in

Many plants thrive in conservatories, particularly the ones that love the sun. For a truly tropical feel, mix tall plants that have big leaves with smaller varieties such as succulents. Alternatively, use artificial plants for all-year greenery without the upkeep.

Be bookish

With the help of bookcases, cabinets and storage units, you can create a cosy reading nook to curl up in. Fill the shelves with your favourite paperbacks and hardbacks, so you can enjoy them again and again.

Dress the windows

Brighten up your conservatory with a set of new blinds. Blinds make it easier to control the light levels, plus they provide privacy and insulation. They are available in many different styles, from venetian to vertical, roller to blackout.
