We all know that conservatories are structures that are either attached or built into the home so that you can enjoy the surrounding landscape. They protect against the harsh weather outside and are therefore perfect for every climate zone. It’s a perfect place to relax, enjoy the view, read a book, meet up with friends, or even sleep.
If you’re designing a home from scratch, it’s a good idea to include at least one small sun room in the plan. If you already have a home, don’t fret. You can always build a conservatory extension which would be even better as it would have a glass roof and great views of your mature garden.
Conservatory decoration ideas
There are many ways to decorate such a room depending on the purpose. The most popular way is to transform yourself into a space where you can hang out with friends and family. In this case you have two options. You can turn it into a “living room” or a “dining room”. Decorating would be the same as decorating these two rooms. Though you can add a lot more green here because it would thrive in the amount of sunlight it would get. Although you will see in the pictures below, you can turn a winter garden into a gym, indoor pool room, bathroom, bedroom, and other spaces too. With a well-thought-out layout, pretty fabrics, comfortable furniture, and nice decor accents, it will become the most-used room in your home.
The most important thing to consider when choosing furniture is its ability to withstand harsh conditions. It will receive a lot more sunlight than any other room, so it should be well protected. For example, wooden furniture must be stained in the same way as garden furniture, fabrics should be as durable as fabrics used outdoors, and so on.
With this in mind, take a look at the gallery with beautiful examples showing how a winter garden can be designed. You will definitely find plenty of ideas to plan and decorate your own room to relax.
