What would be your dream room? I think mine would be a bright, peaceful, colourful room, with a big, comfortable sofa, a small coffee table and wooden flooring, with a great view to admire the garden’s vibrant flowers and playful wildlife. A conservatory is probably the best type of room to fit this dream and I am not alone in the desire to build one on my home.
A recent survey by Onepoll came to the conclusion that a conservatory is among the specifications to make the ideal home in Britain. A conservatory offers you something unique by giving you a warm, cosy room to gaze out into the world. Abigail Owens, design director at Carolyn Parker Interior Design, says “It’s very calming to lose yourself in a view.”
Abilgail also states that you should think about where you put your conservatory on your home to ensure you have privacy. There is nothing worse than having a nosey neighbour staring at you whilst you’re trying to relax. Putting in uplights outside your conservatory windows can prevent people seeing in during the evening, and blinds are also a good way to deny the neighbours any views into your conservatory, also helping insulate the room too. A conservatory is a great way to add value and extra space to your home.
The Onepoll survey also discovered that other ways to create the perfect home was by having a study, utility room, dining room and breakfast room, all of which a conservatory can serve as. My mum uses her conservatory as a dining room and it always makes meals a little more fun as you are surrounded by the gorgeous colours of the garden and it brings you closer to nature and the great outdoors. On a clear night, a moonlit conservatory gives particularly stunning views of the stars through a glass roof, and is incredible for romantic nights in.
