It should therefore be treated like any other room in the house and by that we mean that you should maximise its potential and decorate and furnish the space in a manner that expresses you as a person.
Fixtures and fittings will play a large part in helping you do this and establishing an identity for the extension. When we speak about fixtures and fittings, we refer to essentials like light fitments, mirrors, blinds, freestanding furniture, lampshades etc.
To elaborate further on that, here’s our handpicked selection of some of the best and must-have fixtures and fittings for conservatories…
Cane / Rattan sofa and armchair
A conservatory is the perfect place for relaxation and unwinding. You need a comfy sofa and armchair to be able to really chill out and switch off from the world.
Cane and rattan furniture is the best furniture solution as it is heat tolerant and isn’t susceptible to drying out or splitting in warm temperatures like wood.
White coloured furniture will add to the airy ambience of the space and give it a contemporary feel. If you prefer darker coloured furniture, temper the colour with light coloured soft furnishings.
Existing conservatory owners can look forward to spending more time in their extension over the coming months due to extended daylight hours, but why should conservatory living stop once the sun goes down?
Keep it well-lit late into the night with the inclusion of integrated spotlights (when possible), a grand chandelier above the dining table if it’s an eating spot or you could go for a light/fan combination to illuminate the conservatory’s interior and keep it cool at the same time.
For romanticism, look towards elegant and understated floor and table lamps.
Laminate / vinyl flooring
Your chosen flooring will come down to how you want to use the space. Laminate and vinyl flooring work well for most applications as they’re both hard-wearing and can mimic the appearance of natural wood.
Laminate and vinyl flooring is also extremely easy to clean which is useful if you have young children traipsing into the extension from the garden with potentially muddy feet. A simple wipe with a wet cloth or mop will remove any such marks.
