A conservatory or glasshouse was traditionally just a structure built next to the main house and were mostly used to grow plants for subsidiary use such as flowers or vegetables. However, modern homeowners have been using it as an extra living space or as a hosting spot for tea parties aside from the main house. A conservatory can be used as a sunroom, breakfast room, game room, orangery, or even a garden room.
Research shows that conservatories can add up to 7% of the house’s value alongside being a house buyer magnet. Many customers are fascinated by the extra space provided where one can stash up their personality in the space.
Improving Your Conservatory
Owning something for long, however fancy, gets boring and some improvements or modifications can breathe new life to it. Similarly, when one has a conservatory for a long time, homeowners can get tired of it.
There are times when the uniqueness of your conservatory may begin to wear off, and you end up neglecting it. When this happens, take a look at your conservatory and determine what needs to be done so that you can bring out its beauty again.
Here are some ways that you can improve yours with solutions that meet your specific needs.
Mix and match
At times, you may find out that the thing preventing you from enjoying your lovely glasshouse is poor furniture arrangement. One of the best and perhaps the first steps that you should think of doing is to rearrange your living space.
You might find out that it may be your current layout that is preventing you from taking in the beauty of your backyard garden, or a bulky cabinet blocking your sunset view from your conservatory.
Accessorize and Redecorate
More often than not, people start disliking a certain room in their home because the interior décor got stale over time. As a solution to this, you can redecorate, paint the walls afresh, buy new classy blinds and convert your space into something that can impress your guests.
While you are at it, do not forget to get a few accessories for your conservatory. Usually, design pieces with fine details are the ones that can make a space stand out and more beautiful. You can add things ranging from frames and cushions to area rugs and indoor plants that will make your conservatory feel more homely.
Change your Current Roof
Occasionally, many individuals dislike conservatories because of times when there is a glare from the sun, especially during the summertime when they are supposed to be relaxing.
Make sure that you have high quality roof panels for your conservatory. These types of roof panels are made from lightweight UPVC material which helps in guarding against the harmful sun rays. With cozy panels, you can bask in the sun via skylights and glass walls in your conservatory.
The secret to having a fresh look in your conservatory is to redecorate and accessorize so that your space looks new to your eyes every time. Make sure that your conservatory is adequately insulated so that it stays warm during winter and cool during summer, therefore allowing you to enjoy it all year long.
Not everyone has the great opportunity of having a glasshouse as part of their home residence. However, for those that do, there are so many opportunities to turn it into a nice cozy place to spend some quality time in with your family. Do you have a conservatory in your home?
