If you’re in need of a few more ways in which you can update a neglected conservatory, read on…
Add statement furniture
Unless you’ve got a huge conservatory, you probably don’t have all that much extra floor space, but it’s easy to make a splash with a designer or vintage chair or end table. If you’re on a tight budget you could always repurpose an unloved piece of furniture by giving it a coat of paint in a bright colour. If you’re feeling really adventurous, use torn out magazine or newspaper pages and PVA glue to create a collage piece of furniture.
Give it a country makeover
A cute bumble bee cushion or tablecloths instantly lift the whole space. Adding textiles is a great way to makeover a space on a budget and with minimal effort.
If you’re lucky enough to have casement windows, like those from https://www.firmfix.co.uk/windows/casement-windows/ in your conservatory, add a cute patterned blind or curtains to complete the look.
Make your dining table the focal point
If you use your conservatory for dining, make your table the stand out feature. Invest in some new table settings or crockery in bold colours and see what a difference it makes to the whole room! House Beautiful magazine has some great ideas for making your dining table the focal point of your room, including using stunning prints and patterns for a Moroccan feel.
Go totally tropical
This look works especially well if you’ve got a lot of greenery outside your conservatory. Add some colourful tropical style accessories such as bright throws, leafy palms and colourful tealight holders for a vibrant makeover. You can also add colourful fairylights to brighten up your tropical theme conservatory on dull days.
Use hanging plants
If you lack the space for large potted plants, look upwards and go for hanging varieties. This is an easy yet clever way to add interest and you’ll love how different it makes your conservatory feel. Hanging planters are very fashionable right now so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for online or on the high street. Just be sure to select plants that are suited to conservatory living and make sure your hanging plants are easy to reach for when you need to water them. Trailing plants such as spider plants work well in hanging planters.
