BRING YOUR GARDEN INSIDE WITH A CONSERVATORY
Long winters are becoming the norm in the UK, and not many people are particularly psyched about that fact! The winter rains and winds batter the house on the outside, and that beautiful big garden space that you spent time putting together, planting and preening is taking the brunt of it all. It’s hard to look out of the window and know that you have to wait to be able to enjoy that outside space. So, the best option for you is a conservatory.
BRINGING OUTSIDE IN
A conservatory is a fantastic alternative to help you to enjoy all the comforts of being outdoors without the elements battering against you. You can relax while bathed in natural light streaming in from the outside, and you can fight off the winter blues while you do so. It’s essential to connect to the outdoors as much as possible, and your conservatory can help you to do just that.
A PERFECT GROWING ENVIRONMENT
A conservatory usually has lots of light panels and is as airy as the outdoors – with a little more wind protection! It’s the place where your inside and outside collide, so you can add a plethora of plants that can grow correctly in the environment of the conservatory. You can choose exotic plants with a structural shape to brighten the corners of the room, giving it a contemporary look.
Pot plants are perfect for the conservatory, and they look fantastic in such a light space. They’re also proven to boost your mood and reduce stress; everyone loves to be around plants, and when you bring them in, you can feel how powerful they act as filters to purify your air.
We’ve just talked through the plants that you can put in the conservatory, and here are some of the ideal examples of plants that will help you to bring the outside in:
Very easy to grow, palms provide a tropical atmosphere that will make you feel like you’re somewhere far away.
Did you know that rubber plants are great at purifying air inside? They’re low maintenance, too, which means that you don’t have much upkeep for them.
DRACAENA (RED EDGED)
If you want to add some splashes of colour to your conservatory, you should think about how the Dracaena’s purple-red edges can do that for you!
You’ve got the lights, you’ve got the plants, and now you need the furniture to kick back and relax on. As it’s an outdoor room (well, indoors, but you get the point), you should think about a natural theme. Fabrics should be light and soft, such as natural cotton. Choose bamboo furniture and splashes of citrus colour and bold designs in florals. Rattan furniture is particularly popular for the conservatory, and you can point the furniture toward the windows to provide a view from the room.
The conservatory should be a place you should relax and unwind while connecting with the outside world – and now you can make it so.
