The modern conservatory is an amazing space that is no longer restricted to rooming your plants. In fact, it has become one of the greatest extension styles that adds incredible design, space, and value to your home.

It’s therefore no surprise that homeowners are constantly on the lookout for that one-of-a-kind idea that adds an extra appeal to these beautiful rooms.

If you are hoping to do the same, and create the perfect room within your home, try out these tips to convert your conservatory into a space of comfort and luxury:

1. Opt for a simple layout

Opt for a simple layout

The idea is to create a room that is both unique and multi-functional. A simple layout then allows you the freedom and space to utilise the conservatory for multiple purposes.

Whether you wish to snuggle with a good book, or entertain guests, the space and design of the conservatory should ideally feel uncluttered.

Contemporary minimalist styles featuring clean lines create a sophisticated space that enhances the outdoors. Whereas a natural style with stone floors and exposed brick walls helps bring the outdoors inside, to create a cosy and rustic mood.

2. Make it green

Make it green

Even if the conservatory is not designed to be a quintessential greenhouse, that should not stop you from adding some indoor plants. As a matter of fact, we encourage it.

Plants add incredible design and colour to a room, while creating a warm and welcoming ambience. Not just that, but the numerous options available range from simple succulents to the gorgeous orchids, allowing you to effortlessly infuse different tones and textures to the conservatory.

3. Use multi-functional furniture

Use multi-functional furniture

To make your conservatory as versatile and spacious as possible, it is always a good idea to select equally versatile pieces of furniture.

Classic rattan furniture remains an ever-popular choice for the conservatory as it fits with virtually any theme or style. Ornate metal tables on the other hand, can help convert your conservatory into an alfresco-styled dining room, while soft upholstered sofas are a perfect spot to relax.

Cosy window and banquette seating also offer great value as they can easily double up to create hidden storage spaces, a must for any room.

Quite simply, when it comes to conservatory furniture, a few pieces can go a long way to create the room you require.

4. Control the light coming in

Control the light coming in

One of the best aspects of a conservatory is the incredible amount of natural light that it receives. But this is also one of its greatest drawbacks. The constant sunlight can quickly make the room uncomfortably hot, and is definitely not conducive to create a relaxed atmosphere.

A quick and simple fix to keep the heat out is the installation of blinds. Not only do they help you keep the room cool, but they are also an opportunity to add a bit colour and style to your conservatory. From pleated and reflective vertical blinds, to Roman and faux wood blinds, the choices are endless.

5. Add a splash of colour

Add a splash of colour

Even with an overall neutral colour palette, a splash of colour can work wonderfully well in the conservatory. It not only opens up the room, but can add delightful tones and designs. And there are no set rules which dictate the placement of these colours.

It could be in the form of a feature wall, a fresh coat of paint on your furniture, an artfully-placed rug, or even an ornate stained-glass window.

However, it is equally important to balance out the colours in order to minimise the visual chaos, while creating a calm and open atmosphere.


The quiet conservatory is quickly on its way to becoming one of the most revered places in your home. With its stunning views, cosy furniture, and tranquil setting, it is seen as the best place to unwind after a busy day.

And it doesn’t end there.

New trends, innovative styles, and classical designs are making a mark on conservatory interiors. And the results are incredible. From creating customised dining areas with a beautiful view of the outdoors, to the perfect private office space, the conservatory is no longer just a conservatory.

And fortunately, this transformation of the conservatory into the ultimate addition to your family home, can be an effortless endeavour with a few simple ideas and the right expert advice.
