5 Ways to Get Your Conservatory Summer Ready

Getting your home ready for the summer months is always fun and helps you embrace those extra hours of sunshine. The garden and patio furniture gets pulled out along with the BBQ for those hot summer days and the paddling pool is filled ready for a mid-day cool down.

If you have a conservatory that too can be updated for the summer so that you and your family can enjoy it to the fullest and here’s 5 ways you can do it.

De-clutter the space

Over the winter months it’s easy to have a bit of clutter build up in the conservatory emanating from busy periods like Christmas and New Year, but to be summer ready it’s time to have a bit of a clear out.

De-cluttering and removing all of the things that you don’t need to keep in your conservatory will open up the space and make it feel more inviting and relaxing for those long summer evenings. This will be most beneficial for those who own sleek conservatory styles like the Lean-To design where space is precious.

Have a good clean

Once you have de-cluttered your conservatory break out the marigolds and have a good clean to make sure all of the dust and dirt is removed. Get all the family involved to make the chore of cleaning easier and quicker. The windows of the conservatory should be a primary target as restoring their gleam will help transfer in more natural sunlight.

This will freshen up the space and make it more bright and airy so that you have an incredibly inviting conservatory from dusk til dawn.

Accessorise with plants

Accessorising your conservatory with plants and potted flowers will add some much needed summer colour and bring the outdoors inside. Doing so will also leave the interior smelling sweet enough to tempt every family member inside.

TV’s most famous gardening guru Alan Titchmarsh has very recently written an article detailing suggested plants for conservatories.

But don’t forget to water your plants regularly to keep them in bloom!

Add a touch of colour

Brighten up your conservatory with some summer colours. Bright blues, greens, pinks and yellows really add that sense of summer and will refresh your conservatory ready for the summer months.

It doesn’t have to be a case of painting, simply accessorising the space with vibrant photo frames or lively looking new cushions is enough to inject that summer vibe.

Update your furniture

Replacing old conservatory furniture with a new modern style is a great way to rejuvenate a home extension and add a refreshed flare to the space, but that kind of an update isn’t always affordable for some.

If your conservatory furniture is slightly outdated and you’re on a budget you can always spruce it up with some new colourful throws. This will add colour and give your worn furniture a new lease of life.
