Styling Your Conservatory

Published: March 1, 2024

A conservatory is a special area of your home, offering the best of indoor comfort with the beauty of the outdoors. This can become your favourite relaxation spot, a vibrant space for entertaining or the perfect place to enjoy a sunlit breakfast every morning, no matter the weather. 

If you recently added a conservatory to your Yorkshire home or are currently designing this addition, your goal is to style the space into a beautiful, welcoming extension of your home. Here are the essential steps on how to style a conservatory to complement your home and meet your requirements.

Define Your Needs

Your conservatory should reflect how you live and what you love. If dining al fresco is a family tradition, consider setting up a dining area that lets you enjoy meals surrounded by views of your garden. Then again, a reading nook with comfortable seating and ample bookshelves creates a quiet spot for relaxation. If entertaining is your passion, a bar area or space for a sound system might be the perfect way to enhance your lifestyle.

Another early step in the styling process is to select a cohesive colour scheme for your conservatory. Light neutral colours make the area feel spacious and airy, ideal for a relaxing atmosphere. For a more dramatic environment, consider a bold colour scheme. Whatever you choose, ensure the colours flow smoothly from the adjoining house for a unified look.

Select Flooring

Conservatory flooring options should combine indoor comfort with the durability required for a partially outdoor space. Popular options include:

  • Ceramic tiles: A cool, clean appearance and ease of maintenance make tiles an ideal flooring material for conservatories. Be aware that the material feels cold underfoot, which could make it better suited for warmer climates.
  • Hardwood floors: You might consider traditional hardwood floors for their warmth and elegance. Wood lends a cosy, natural feel to the space, though it has higher maintenance requirements than other options. 
  • Laminate flooring: If you love the look of hardwood but are working with a tighter budget, consider wood-look laminate. In addition to a more affordable price point, you’ll enjoy added durability and ease of cleaning.
  • Area rugs: No matter what flooring you choose, consider defining areas within your conservatory using area rugs. This adds softness underfoot and introduces colour and texture to make the space more inviting.

Pick Out Light Fixtures

You may not need to light your sun-bathed conservatory during the day, but ambient lighting transforms the space into a cosy retreat after dark. Lighting options that introduce warmth and character include pendant lights, wall sconces, floor lamps and overhead string lights. Dimmer switches add flexibility, allowing you to create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion.

Buy the Right Furniture

Furniture sets the tone for your conservatory. Opt for pieces that match the furniture style throughout your home whilst providing comfort and durability in an indoor-outdoor setting. Wicker, rattan and wrought iron furniture offer functionality if you plan to use your conservatory as a dining space. On the other hand, plush sofas and cosy day beds invite relaxation in a conservatory used as a living room.

Add Personal Touches

Accessories are the final touches that bring your conservatory to life. Here are the types of decorations you may want to incorporate:

  • Soft furnishings like cushions and throws add comfort and colour.
  • Potted plants connect the space to the surrounding garden.
  • Family photos put a smile on your face whenever you glance at them.
  • Your favourite books provide an endless selection of good reads when you want to relax in your conservatory.
  • Cherished keepsakes, from travel souvenirs to artwork created by loved ones, make your conservatory unique.
