Get inspired to give your conservatory a lift with these decor ideas, so you can enjoy it all year round.

Conservatories are great for bringing more light into the home and giving you the outdoor experience even when the British weather fails us. Not to mention adding value to your home by giving you additional space to entertain, dine and relax. However, in some households, conservatories can slip into the background and often become a dumping ground for furniture and clutter.

Here are some conservatory decor ideas to help transform yours into a haven you can enjoy year round.

Bring the outdoor furniture in

Conservatories don't have to be filled out with hefty sofas and armchairs. Bring the outside in, using lightweight, streamlined, rattan-style garden furniture. This allows for more space and a more pared-back look. It also means you get the feeling of being outdoors even when the weather takes a turn.

Window seats and white furnishings

Window seats are another great conservatory decor idea for creating more space, while still having a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the views of the garden. It's also a good idea to decorate with white in conservatories; other than giving it an airy feel, it reflects and makes the most of the natural light that's streaming in.

Make a statement with darker colours

Alternatively, make your conservatory a statement by opting for a darker colour scheme. If you're currently deciding on a conservatory design, then think about going for a black structure rather than the traditional white, or if you already have a conservatory, you can buy special paint and take this room from dull to dramatic.

To make it extra cosy, fill the conservatory with dark furniture along with some statement colourful pieces and plenty of tropical plants.

Inject some industrial charm

If you're looking to use the conservatory to add a bit of sophistication to your home, opt for weathered furniture and metallic accents to achieve an industrial chic look.

Although they are usually forgotten, blinds are a great way of adding some style to the conservatory - copper coloured blinds are a nice touch to finish off a modern motif. 

Go boho 

Boho Conservatory Decor Ideas

If you can't quite decide on what conservatory decor to go for, why not go crazy with a boho theme - layering different colours and textures is sure to make the room come alive. Opt for an eclectic mix of furniture, fairy lights and an interesting tapestry to create the ultimate chill out zone.
