Keep in mind that modern conservatories and orangeries are designed to be all-year round spaces, rather than exclusive to our most moderately warm months, so implement decorative trends that endure through the seasons.
You’re enveloped by a glazed wall when relaxing in a conservatory or orangery and lots of natural light enters into the space. It’s nice sometimes to be able to shut off the sun and the outside world a little.
The fitting of some carefully measured conservatory blinds will give you that luxury and they come available in a host of colours, patterns and styles (vertical, Venetian, roller, Roman etc.)
You may want to choose a colour / pattern matching any colours / patterns used in any accompanying furnishings (cushions, throws, rugs, mats etc.). For those wanting to play it safe, utilise neutral shades or to further emphasise the feeling of spaciousness inside, veer towards light pastel colours.
Conservatories and orangeries offer the most spectacular garden views and there’s nothing to stop you bringing some of that greenery indoors.
We’re talking about strategically placing green potted plants (citrus trees, spider plants, tropical plants) in key areas of the interior (on top of window ledges, dining or coffee table). Just remember to keep them watered so that they don’t die and continue to give you the sensational scent of the garden.
‘Greenery’ was also announced as Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018, so look out for cushions and covers carrying this fresh and zesty yellow-green shade and put them in there.
Gazing at your garden from a conservatory in summer makes you want to get out there and enjoy it. The integration of bi-folding doors into your conservatory design will give you the option of switching from conservatory living to garden living or embracing the two environments at the same time by fully folding them open.
Depending on the size of the extension, you can have bi-folding doors containing 2 panes up to 7 panes long.
To maximise the view when they’re completely open, request that the individual door leafs open outwardly, though the view through a closed bi-fold door is equally spectacular thanks to the trim frames and lengthy glass panes.
