What Does It Take To Make Your Conservatory Warm, Welcoming & Cosy?


If you’re lucky enough to have a conservatory in your home, you most probably like to make the most of the space. In the summer months, your conservatory is most probably one of the most used rooms in the house.

However, come winter, the chances are that your conservatory gets little use. If this is the case, don’t worry you’re not alone. 85 percent of conservatories aren’t used in the winter months because of how cold they can be.

As a parent, you most probably like to take advantage of every inch of space your home has, as kids require a lot of space. However, if your conservatory is too cold, then you most probably don’t let your little ones play in there. After all, you don’t want them to get cold.

The good news is that there are plenty of ways that you can make your conservatory more of a winter-friendly place. Here’s how to go about doing so:

Insulate it
One of the best things to do when it comes to making your conservatory more of a winter-friendly space is insulating it. A lot of conservatories are cold, drafty places, but that doesn’t have to be the case. If you’re willing to invest in your conservatory, you can make it a much warmer and cosier space. The best ways to make your conservatory better do include a little investment. However, they're investments that are more than worth the cost. Such as by having the windows replaced with double glazed alternatives or by choosing to replace your conservatory roof. These might be costly, but they'll make your conservatory somewhere that's warm and cosy.

Have underfloor heating installed
Instead of using an electric heater to keep your conservatory warm, invest in underfloor heating. The great thing about underfloor heating is that it will keep the room nice and toasty without using too much energy. This is because most underfloor heating systems are highly energy efficient.

Make it look and feel comfortable
When it comes to creating a cosy space, one of the most important things is getting what’s in the room right. A lot of how warm and welcoming a space looks and feels depends on how it’s been decorated and what furniture has been dotted around. To make your conservatory look and feel more warm and welcoming, choosing pieces that add warmth. For instance, things like area rugs, throw cushions, blankets, beanbags, and armchairs are ideal.

Don’t forget the accessories!
Last but not least, don’t forget to dot a few cute accessories around. Think strings of fairy lights and strings of bunting, scented candles, pretty pieces of wall art. The more stylish and pretty you make the space, the more appealing it will look and feel.


So there you have it, everything that you need to know about making your conservatory a warm, welcoming and cosy space. It might take an investment or two, but by implementing the above tips, you can ensure that your conservatory is warm and welcoming all year round.
