How To Revamp Your Conservatory For Summer
It can be hard keeping pace with current home trends as they change so quickly, but no-one wants their property to lag behind in the fashionable stakes.
This rule of thumb also applies to your conservatory. The moment you sense that your home extension looks and feels dated is the moment you need to do something to bring it back into fashion.
Summer is the season when most conservatory owners look to get the most out of their home extension. The summer solstice isn’t until 21st June; giving you plenty time to turn it back into a sensational summer setting.
Our Top Summer Makeover Tips For Conservatories
- Go for “Greenery”
Colour company Pantone has named “Greenery” as its colour of the year for 2017 – a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade.
For most people part of the reasoning for buying a conservatory is to get closer to the greenery offered by their garden. Adding soft furnishings (loose covers, cushions, chair coverings) in the greenery colour will give you the best of both worlds as you will be able to bring a little bit of the outdoors indoors. You can further achieve this by putting some plants and potted flowers on the window ledges or any tables.
- Fit a solid roof
Using a conservatory in summer isn’t an option for some due to their old extension overheating during the hottest part of the year.
The easiest way to rectify the problem is to replace the existing roof with a solid roof as it will enhance thermal efficiency. It will keep the interior nice and cool so that you can enjoy the space in comfort, no matter how hot it is outside. Incorporating roof windows into the solid roof will also drive more natural sunlight into the structure and help make it feel more spacious.
- Add some blinds
A further way of keeping your conservatory cool is by fitting some conservatory blinds that you can draw when the internal temperature heats up. They’ll also add a little bit of style to the space.
Pleated, roller, vertical or venetian blinds are the most common types of blinds available for conservatories and come in various fabrics and colours.
