You’ve just had your dream conservatory built for your home and you can’t wait to get it livable, ready for you to unwind and enjoy the divine views of your garden. With all of this extra space, how are you going to use it and where are you going to get the furniture?
Conservatories are an ideal room for being sociable, tending to be used as an extra living space with sofas, coffee tables and foot stools or as a glamorous dining space. We’ve put together this little guide on where to go for your conservatory furniture depending upon your budget.
Free & Upcycling
The upcycling trend has been around for quite a few years now, turning one person’s junk into another person’s treasure! You can create some really cool and quirky items that add character to the room, with something as simple as a lampshade made from an old washing machine drum or turning a pallet into a comfy sofa!
Restore or Pre-owned
You shouldn’t ever write-off local charity shops or car boot sales. You never know what you will find, but places like the British Heart Foundation have a scheme where they take away unwanted sofas and sell them in their stores. You may have to visit regularly and bide your time until the perfect item comes in, but there are bargains to be had! Don’t forget websites like preloved.co.uk and eBay for second hand furnishings too.
Off the Shelf
If you’re looking for brand new furniture, The Cotswold Company are a super organisation that handcraft all of their furniture out of top quality wood, and it’s surprisingly affordable! Their beautiful furniture range includes furnishings for the living and dining room, from chic coffee tables and chairs to grand dining tables.
Going to shops like Marks and Spencer, Tesco or Asda is another place to pick up a good deal. The bigger shops often have sales and you can occasionally find voucher codes to get an extra discount or free delivery.
If you’re like me and not a gifted DIYer, but you want to give old furnishings a new home, then have a look at stores like Restoredfurniture.co.uk, who have returned old items into their former glory.
Should you be fortunate enough to not have a budget and have complete creative freedom of your conservatory, then these luxury brands may be the place to go.
Holloways are a luxury conservatory furniture brand that have a vast range of sofas and coffee tables for you to choose from.
