Decorating and furnishing your conservatory requires different thought processes to the rest of your home. In a conservatory interior, there’s typically lighter colours and fabrics paired with wicker and cane for a light and airy space. There are plenty of options to make your conservatory feel like a true part of your home.
If you are to use your conservatory as a lounge area, then it’s likely you’ll incorporate sofas and chairs into the room. Wicker, cane and rattan are extremely popular furniture materials, as they are extremely light and can be moved around as you wish within your conservatory. Doubling up as garden furniture, these materials suit any colour interior and are relatively hard wearing.
Once you have chosen the base material for your conservatory sofa or chairs, you need to consider the material for cushions to go over the top. Much like the rest of your home furniture, it’s important to remember comfort and style. It’s likely that any colour scheme will match wicker, cane and rattan however there are some important factors to bear in mind when choosing colours.
Typically, lights and whites are used for conservatory furniture to exaggerate the light and create an airy atmosphere. However, if you have glass or uPVC roofing, it’s important to remember that in winter, you conservatory can feel a lot colder than it is with white creating a particularly cold room. Bright colours may fade due to the sunlight too, with glass and uPVC providing no protection from heat and sunlight.
Protect your furniture
To free up your conservatory furniture options and protect colours within, it may be worth buying blinds to keep your furniture out of constant sunlight. For a more permanent option, you may want to consider a tiled conservatory roof. Not only can a solid roof protect your furniture, but can help retain heat in the winter and reflect it in the summer for a more stable room temperature.
