If you’re one of these people, is your conservatory well set-up for summer? If it isn’t, you have a race against time to get it summer-ready. But don’t panic as ERG Scotland has some superb ideas to help you create a sensational summer space.
Concentrate on these three areas and follow our advice for each of them to be guaranteed a conservatory interior that will make your summer special…
You need comfort when relaxing in your conservatory and taking in its unique atmosphere. Does your conservatory furniture (sofa, armchair) offer you that, and is it still durable and attractive enough? When it’s lost its resilience and visual appeal, replace it with new upholstered, wooden or rattan furniture to leave you sitting comfortably again and have furniture that you know will resist the UV rays of the sun.
A conservatory is a place that all the family can enjoy. Your flooring must be able to manage the level of footfall that it will accommodate over the years. If you have a door that connects your conservatory to your garden (patio doors, French doors, bi-folding doors) and young children that like to run in and out through it, it’s probably not a good idea to have a carpeted floor. You’re far better fitting engineered wood flooring, laminate, tiled or vinyl flooring as it’s easier to clean and won’t become worn.
Changing your colour scheme is an obvious way to transform the appearance of your interior. You could either do this by exchanging your current soft furnishings for some new soft furnishings in a completely different colour, and / or painting an ascent wall in an on-trend colour. One of the most fashionable colours this year is ‘Spiced Honey’ after this “warm amber tone” was announced as Colour of the Year for 2019 by Dulux.
It is inevitable that you will spend a large amount of your summer days in your conservatory, possibly late into the night on some occasions. You need quality lighting to be able to do that. If the conservatory has an internal pelmet, you can always have integrated downlighters and save space at the same time. Another option is to fit mounted wall lights to a solid wall, or you could hang an impressive chandelier from the ceiling.

Early indications are that the Easter weekend will be the hottest spell of the year so far and let’s keep our fingers crossed that this…
