A conservatory can be the shining jewel of a house – but only if it’s used correctly. This means that you might have to think outside the box a little and give some thought to how you can use yours. If you are stuck for ideas, fear not. Here are four creative ideas that will get the most out of your conservatory.
This idea gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘rise and shine’. Instead of tucking into a bowl of cereal in bed or chowing down on a bacon sandwich in front of the TV, turn your conservatory into a family breakfast room.
The natural light will wake you up faster than any cup of coffee and it’s a great way to appreciate nature at the beginning of each day. To put this idea into action, you really just need a small dining table and chairs in your conservatory. Opt for pines and natural yellows to enhance the glow of natural sunlight.
Create a Christmas Grotto
Sadly, many people struggle to get the use out of their conservatory when winter sets in. One way to avoid the room lying dormant for months on end is by setting up your Christmas tree in there. It’s guaranteed to get people wandering in and using the room over the holidays, plus you could make it a magical festive area with fairy lights, ideal for the kids.
A conservatory is a great environment to start growing plants. All the natural light and trapped heat create the ideal atmosphere for them to prosper, much more so than they likely could in any other room in the house. And unlike growing plants outdoors, you can still tend to your shrubs even when it’s pouring down!
Turn it into an Office
Whether you work from home or simply take your work home with you, then consider turning your conservatory into an office. Your productively could literally shoot through the roof since a conservatory makes such a warm, light and serene place to work in.
