6 ways to use your conservatory
Offering timeless style to both traditional and modern properties, a conservatory can increase the value of your home whilst giving you much needed extra space. When it comes to your new conservatory, there are various ways you can utilise the space. Whether it be an extra bedroom, a games room or a greenhouse, a conservatory gives your property an additional closed room that can be used all year round.
What is a conservatory?
A conservatory is an enclosed space and acts as an extension to your home. Usually connected by an interior wall, a conservatory is usually built from the same materials as your property such as brick. Conservatories commonly resemble a greenhouse from the outside due to the large panes of glass that are usually installed to maximise natural light.
A seamless transition between your home and garden
Much like a veranda or a patio, a conservatory creates a seamless transition between your interior and exterior living spaces. However, in contrast to a veranda, a conservatory is fully enclosed. Conservatories give your home an additional space you can use regardless of any adverse weather conditions and offer an uninterrupted panoramic vista of your garden.
You may think the installation of a conservatory instead of a veranda or patio limits what you can use the space for. However, there are many uses for the space.
While you may not think to use your conservatory as a spare bedroom, conservatories are often considered separate from your main living areas regardless of the shared interior walls due to the nature of the extension. By furnishing your conservatory with a sofa bed that can be easily folded away as well as curtains or blinds, your conservatory will easily transform into an additional guest bedroom.
A conservatory is a great place for a games room or playroom, providing a space for board games with friends or even for your brooding teenagers to chill out away from the rest of the family. A conservatory can also give your young children their own room to roam and play in a secure and safe place while providing additional storage for toys and games out of sight.
A conservatory can give your property an additional space for intimate social occasions such as a dinner party. Depending on the exact specifications of your conservatory, you may even be able to open the windows and let in the cool evening air, providing ventilation while also keeping your family warm and dry. Safe from any adverse weather conditions, conservatories make for a cosy and inviting living space that can be decorated with candles and plush furnishings. A folding or extending table can also provide additional seats while also making use of the space.
A conservatory gives your home the perfect environment for nurturing and growing plants, in particular flowers, fruit and vegetables. Fill the space with tropical plants for a rainforest-esque aesthetic or have a go at growing strawberries or tomatoes. Don’t forget to add a cosy sofa or table and chair set for a little Parisian chic.
Delivering soft breezes and natural light to your workspace, a conservatory can give your property a peaceful home office with beautiful, uninterrupted views out into your garden. If you’re working from home, why not move into your conservatory for a quiet and aesthetically pleasing work environment.
Relaxation and lounging
Of course, you could always simply use your conservatory as a space to relax and unwind. Featuring large panes of glass that wrap right around your exterior walls, a conservatory brings the outside in. It’s the perfect place to read with a cup of tea after a long day. You could even fill your space with beautiful furnishings.
In the summertime, you’ll be able to open the doors and windows for maximum air ventilation. In the winter a conservatory will give you a naturally warm place to cosy up regardless of any adverse weather conditions.
