Must-Have Trends Suited To Everyone

We all have our ideas on how to create the perfect home, which is great because it means that when looking for inspiration there is so much to choose from. Each person has their own style and seeing their successes encourages us to get a little out of our comfort zone and spruce up our homes. What’s a better place to try out new ideas than a conservatory? So why not take a look at our great unique ideas.

Summer Retreat

They say that you are always happier, more relaxed and chilled out when on holiday, so why not make this last not only in the summer months but all year round with a gorgeous conservatory summer retreat. When we think summer, we automatically associate the season with bright and vibrant colours, colours that have connotations to happiness. Add canary yellow, hot pink, a tiger orange and even lime green to your space to give the feel of a tropical environment. A great way to add colour to a room is through bold printed patterned home furnishings such as cushions and vases. Dunelm sells a vast range of eye-catching pillows to brighten up your room.

Keep It Cosy

One of the most popular uses of conservatories is a cosy place of relaxation to come back to after a long, tiring day. Fill your conservatory with comfortable sofas filled with fluffy cushions and blankets for the ultimate chill zone. You could even look into purchasing a storage coffee table where you can store blankets and duvets inside, so you, your family or your guests can snuggle up and have a catch-up. Ikea is fantastic for multi-purpose furniture at an affordable price. Take a look at this Ikea solid wood storage table we have found, perfect for placing in the centre of your conservatory.

Natural Finish

For those who love simplicity, a great decorative idea for your conservatory is to bring the outdoors in, base your theme around nature. Maintain a simple feel through light toned wooden furniture, making the overall area more light and spacious. Not only is wooden furniture in trend at the moment, but also you can pick up pieces of furniture at a reasonable price, stopping you from having to spend a fortune. Another great way to save money and maintain a natural look is to refrain from wallpapering your back conservatory wall and keeping it as an exposed brick wall. Add houseplants and green accessories with botanical prints to carry on the outdoorsy, natural feel.

Tea Room

Why not think completely out of the box and create a team room in your conservatory. Tearooms usually have a gorgeous country village feel with vintage accessories. A brilliant way to gain a vintage feel is through floral cushions or tablecloths, contrasting pastel colours such as dusky pinks, baby blue and pale greys. With this idea, you can spend minimal money on furniture with up-cycling your own. Take old wooden furniture, the more battered and old looking the better, and upscale it by painting over it with white paint. White wood furniture is a must-have when it comes to vintage looks, if you’re unsure the process of painting furniture, take a look at this step-by-step beginners guide we found.

Retro Styles

Make a statement of your conservatory with retro-inspired furniture and colours. Retro is one of the biggest trends at the moment, and it doesn’t mean that you have to go overboard with crazy, contemporary furniture, as a couple of statement pieces would do the job just as well. This look is mainly based on the primary colours; so common colours to use are reds, yellows, blues and greens. Block geometric patterns would be perfect if you just wanted to introduce a few statement pieces. Unfortunately, retro furniture is a little bit pricier than the previous furniture ideas, but it is definitely worth the money if you wanted a big change for your conservatories looks.

French Styling

If you were seeking a more neutral and fresh feel to your conservatory space then going for French styling would be perfect for you. Keep it simple with a primarily white colour scheme, introducing in baby pink and off-white in places. A great way to achieve a French look is through ‘shabby chic’ furniture, quite similar to the vintage looks mentioned earlier, making your room have a sophisticated and romantic feel. A small dining table with some statement high back chairs would be great for a place to have a meet up with friends or to enjoy a nice glass of wine after a stressful week at work.

Choose What’s Best For You

The ultimate tip for choosing the right decorative theme for your conservatory space is to go with the exact look that you will love and enjoy spending time in. Sometimes conservatories are built for practical uses such as extra storage, playrooms for children or an additional living space for an ever-growing family, but this doesn’t mean that it needs to be dull and boring. Even small accessories can be added liven up the space and give it a unique feel, without feeling too over the top and out of your comfort zone. However, you were looking for a complete change than creating a bespoke theme is a great idea.
