Turn Your Conservatory Into A Year-round Sanctuary
Total Articles: 10
With December upon us, those afternoons spent relaxing in the garden seem like a distant memory. Of course, thanks to the Great British weather, there is never any guarantee that you will be able to do that even in July and August. This is why conservatories are as popular as they are – they give you an opportunity to spend time enjoying the natural vista of your back garden, but with protection from any inclement weather.
How strange, then, that in so many households, the conservatory is all but closed up and forgotten between October and April. Yet with just a little bit of preparation and foresight, it can be An even more enjoyable place to be in the winter months than in the height of summer.
Now is the time of year that the family is spending more free time indoors. So, if you find yourselves all getting just a little bit under each other’s feet from time to time, it makes absolutely no sense to ignore what can be one of the most pleasant rooms in the house to snatch a little bit of free time.
If you need a refuge from the hurly-burly of family life, here are some tips for turning your conservatory into a year-round bolt hole – just don’t tell the kids!
Conservatory roof insulation
The main reason that some people are reluctant to venture into their conservatories in winter is that they either think it will be freezing cold or that warming it up to a pleasantly habitable temperature will send the home heating bill through the roof.
That is only really going to be the case if the heat that is generated is disappearing through the roof first. This is why your number one priority should be to ensure the conservatory is Properly Insulated. Getting insulation installed is quick, simple and will soon pay for itself.
Whatever the age of your conservatory, having the roof insulated will make a huge difference in retaining heat, and will also make the room feel more comfortable and cosy. Even if it is pouring with rain, the sound-deadening qualities will make the room a wonderful place to be – in fact, what could be nicer than sitting in the warm, with a glass or mug of your favourite drink, looking out at the wind and rain from behind glass?
Give it a winter makeover
Understandably enough, conservatories are, by default, kitted out with summer in mind. If you want to use the room as a winter refuge, those floral cushion covers and linen throws in pastel yellows and blues are not going to cut the mustard. The thing is, though, that a couple of sets of cushion covers, some fleece and blankets and maybe a nice warm rug to warm your feet, are the sorts of things you can pick up for next to nothing at a bargain homewares store. All of this can completely transform the room.
Think carefully about your choice of colours. Dark reds, greens and even deep shades of orange or mustard work perfectly and are considered “warm” colours.
Relax and enjoy the changing seasons
The British climate gets a bad press, but when you really pay attention, you can see that every season has a beauty of its own. A conservatory that has conservatory roof insulation is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the changing vista as autumn turns to winter, and soon enough back into spring. It also provides the ideal getaway when you need a few minutes of quiet reflection away from the chaos of family life!
