As the days grow longer and the evenings grow balmy, everybody dreams of having a beautifully decorated conservatory or sun room.
In fact, it's hard to imagine anything better than a cold glass of wine and a good book in a bright and warm conservatory, safe from occasional breezes and summer showers.
However, if you're currently building a new conservatory, it's important not to overlook the decor and design. And of course, if you have neglected your conservatory for many years, now could be the time to give it an update. After all, you could be spending a lot of time in there this summer.
Stylish and practical tiles
Natural stone or porcelain floor tiles are perfect for a conservatory. They are of course easy to clean, so you won't have to worry about kids, pets and guests traipsing through from the garden. Secondly there are some incredibly durable tiles available, which will withstand the extremes of hot and cold that are possible in a conservatory, and often feel lovely and warm underfoot. And last but not least, they look great in any kind of conservatory interior design you choose, creating a high spec finish and adding a real touch of luxury.
Conservatory design ideas
There are three dominant themes in conservatory design:
Classic country - This look is all about warm colours and textures. Opt for travertine tiles or a beige or cream marble, and pair it with traditional wicker furniture, throws, and shabby chic accessories.
Outside Inside - If you want your conservatory to be an extension of your garden, try tumbled tiles, wrought iron furniture, and plenty of luscious green plant life in large planters or hanging baskets.
Contemporary - If your home is contemporary you can design your conservatory to match. Bright white porcelain tiles or a uniform grey will look great with angular monochrome furniture and tropical plants.
However you choose to decorate your conservatory, make sure it's not a forgotten and unloved space, but is somewhere you want to spend plenty of long evenings and sunny afternoons.
