There’s nothing like a flourishing conservatory to liven up your mood and home. From fresh country veg to radiant flowers, a conservatory is an easy and affordable way to bring the great outdoors in and even reduce your daily food waste. Whether you’ve just built a conservatory or you’re looking to renovate an existing space, here are a few DIY tricks that can help create a flourishing space on a budget.
Create a greenhouse effect in your conservatory by bringing in a few plants. Blend your garden into the conservatory by filling the glass room with various shrubs and climbers. When choosing plants, consider how much sunlight the room receives and the level of maintenance each plant requires.
Add cosy fabrics
Conservatories tend to get quite warm in the summer and cracking a window can provide a lot of relief. In the same breath, the winter months can be chilly. In addition to insulation, you can introduce fabrics to create a cosy atmosphere. For example, add plump cushions to wicker furniture, drape a throw over the armchair, and place a soft rug on the floor.
Create a focal point
If you have a dining area in your conservatory, then you can make it a bright focal point. Use your furniture to make a bold statement or put your creativity to the test and use various materials and props to create a vibrant centrepiece.
Install a bookshelf
A conservatory can be used for many different purposes, including hosting family dinners and relaxing with a book. Experiment with your woodworking skills and create a bookshelf for your favourite literature.
