Making our homes as lovely as we can, has become a national past-time and every weekend Brits everywhere are hitting the DIY centres and looking for the next way to improve their homes. It had been the case that some people were thinking purely in terms of how much this would benefit them, when it comes to the valuation of their homes, but even in the slow market when house prices have fallen so dramatically, we know this will not be forever. Making your home somewhere to be proud of and to enjoy, is more than just simply adding value, it is also not losing value and it is having a home you love to live in, which is the most important thing.
If you have been lucky enough to add a conservatory to your dwellings in the last few years then maybe you know, like with all home spaces that need a bit of sprucing up. If you are thinking of re modelling your conservatory, this doesn’t have to mean, the whole builders in and total mess everywhere, that you may think it does when you think about such a project. It would be a much cheaper alternative to simply re-style your space just like you would anywhere else in your home. A conservatory is always extra space that your home did not begin with, so having one means more room for you. This is always something that improves a home, extra space, but you should keep in mind the function of the room and re-style based upon how you use this space.
Some people dine in the area, so obviously table and chairs to suit personal taste but to maximise the feeling of airiness and space, think about using a glass bistro table and smaller cane chairs so the maximum amount of light can pass through the space and into the rest of your home. With any blinds keep them a light colour. If you keep them closed for privacy then think about a signature colour, you can work into the rest of the room.
If you use the space as an office area, try to find fixtures and features to go with your signature colour theme and maybe even add furniture for comfort because no-one likes to work all the time. If you can, have a relaxing space like a recliner or a comfy chair with a foot rest, for those moments in between jobs. If you are someone who regularly works from home and may even entertain professionals in your home then a comfortable place to sit and discuss work will be a necessary feature of the office space.
If you simply have a conservatory that you entertain in, then try and use the space as a feature and keep the space light with Belgravia furniture of pure white. Add a few signature features in crimson or plum along with cushions on your sofa and dried flowers in a simple vase. If simple and crisp white is not your personal style then try rustic and country, with wicker furniture and cane sofa with flowered materials and deep caramel cushions and a rug to compliment.
If you need storage that will function but not be an afterthought or eye sore then some beautiful wooden oak chest of draws will be functional. They are also lovely to dress up with special family photos or ornaments, so that you can sit on your cane sofa and have a glass of wine and enjoy.
