Interior Design Ideas for Smaller Conservatories29/06/2017
Think you’re short on space for a conservatory? Think again. Even with a modestly sized conservatory there are lots of ways this type of extension can add to the overall enjoyment of your home. In this week’s blog we give you some ideas how to make the most of your smaller conservatory.
Conservatory Dining Room
How many times have you wished your kitchen was just a little bit bigger? With a conservatory adjoining a kitchen or living area you can move your dining table into your new space to free up room in the rest of the ground floor. How about opting for a Mediterranean style? Keep your space simple and easy to clean. If there is likely to be heavy through traffic then consider stone, laminate or sisal flooring. Accessorise the room with place mats, rugs and curtains in burnt oranges and sky blues to embrace the feel of a villa in the sun.
Conservatory Play Time
Another way to extend your living area is to turn it into a children’s play-room. If you’re forever battling the mess your kids make in the living room and you’d like to find a way to keep this area a space that looks a bit more respectable, you could entice your children to use the new conservatory as a play area. Include comfy low chairs and cushions that could be enjoyed by adults or children. Storage chests also double up as good seating options if you want to make this a multi-purpose room. Plants in hanging baskets will keep the room feeling fresh but ensure that they are out of the reach of your children. Other hanging ornaments and mobiles can be included to make the room bright and fun.
You really don’t need much additional space to reap the benefits of a conservatory. If you pay attention to the way you utilise and decorate the space in your extension you’ll gain the maximum benefits. A lean-to conservatory is ideal if you have a smaller garden to extend into as the roof slopes away from the property and is a popular choice for terraces around the county.
