Milano Sofa in living room

With summer officially over, it is time to make the transition from outdoors to indoors. The cool temperatures of September make it the perfect month to start getting some use out of your conservatory, plus you’ll still be able to enjoy the views of your garden. Here are some key pieces you need to invest in to make your conservatory a welcoming place to be…

Justice Grey Rattan Ridge Golf Chair
Furniture
Rattan furniture is a popular choice for conservatory seating as it allows you to add a touch of Mediterranean style to the room.
If the image you have of rattan furniture is the dated floral number that populated most homes in the early 2000’s, you are very much mistaken. There are a number of pieces of rattan furniture that have been given a modern twist, like this cool and comfortable golf chair.

You should try to avoid leather in your conservatory. In the winter months, a leather sofa will be very cold to sit on, but, when exposed to the heat of your conservatory in the summer, it will be almost impossible to sit on in the hotter months.

Taj Agra Black Modern Rug
Rugs
Most conservatory’s have tiled or laminate floors, which can be cold an uninviting. Warm up your conservatory with a rug. Not only will this be kind to your feet, you can even go all out and make a statement too. Bright colours, or even a striped rug, will inject your personality into the room and also become a focal point.

If your conservatory experiences a lot of traffic from muddy feet, you should go for a dark coloured rug made of a hard wearing material to minimise the muck and damage.

River Set Of 3 Art & Craft Plant Stand
Plants
Bring the outdoors in by including some potted plants in your conservatory.

The large amount of sunlight that your conservatory receives will provide the optimum conditions for their growth. Just remember to water them regularly, especially in hot conditions.
Decorative pots will make a real feature of the plants, and will also tie the room together.
