A conservatory can be a form of relaxation and sun room all in one. It can be where you dine and entertain your family and friends, or it can be where you can enjoy some alone time. But this extra space can either be make or break depending on the design and layout you planned for it.
If you are intending to extend your home with a conservatory or renovating the existing one, here are some guidelines that can help you achieve that stylish and contemporary design:
Think of a concept. Just like other rooms, you have to consider what your conservatory’s motif will be. Either you can experiment with colors and prints, or go with simple and minimal. You can even get inspiration from your favorite TV shows or movies, if you like.
Deliberate on its purpose. As mentioned, a conservatory can serve many different functions and of course it will be up to you to decide on that. Maybe you want it to be a kind of a living room for receiving guests or it can be a library of some sorts. When you are able to identify, it becomes easier to shop for furniture and other appropriate decorations.
Sketch a layout. Now with your concept and purpose out of the way, you can now envision the whole area and spend the time to think about how you will position each and every piece. This can be a good step too as you can mentally arrange everything and come up with a design where you have fully used the space.
Invest in blinds. Blinds made for conservatory use are no doubt recommended. Because of the glass doors and windows that are typical in conservatories, light from the sun and other outside light sources can easily enter and break through. Though this is great, say, for viewing the sunset and/or the sunrise, it can become irritating and irksome especially when it is unwanted. You are able to control the temperature of the room as well, for both cold and hot seasons. Therefore, you can save from utilizing artificial sources like heaters and air conditioning units.
And with the Perfect Fit System, the blinds are easy and quick to install, so even a simple homeowner like you perhaps, can do the work yourself. It can save you a lot since you will not have to hire somebody to do it.
Blinds do not even have to be plain (unless that is your preference). The market offers a wide selection of them with varying colors and styles you can choose from, that can be suitable for your conservatory concept. You are able to protect yourself from the outside world too, and give you and your family some privacy.
Go green. You can even be one with nature in the interiors of your home and conservatory by putting potted plants and flowers. They can provide color and fragrance.
In designing conservatories and even other places of the house, one must always consider not only beauty and style but also function and purpose. Being economical and money savvy will not hurt either. Just remember to be involved in the whole process so that your preferences will be carried out in the end.
