Furniture should be comfy because you will certainly want to get your
feet up for a wee snooze. Some great furniture available now, and if
you donít have much room you can find great chairs that fold down
at the back and pop out a footstool to make a serious lounger.
Shade is important here. You might want it in the heat of the
day, although its hard to imagine that here in Scotland. There are a variety of blinds available catering specifically for
Alternatively you can have blinds made from your own choice of fabric.
You can hang all sorts of things actually from tented ceiling type
affairs to kite like shapes hung like sails.
"If at all possible I would have a table and chairs. Iíd cut right
down on the comfy seating if need be, because there is nothing quite
like sitting there with your glass of orange juice early in the
morning or with your glass of wine of an evening. Blinds also come in handy for privacy at night if you are overlooked."
Plants of course make the conservatory. And even if you donít have
time to look after a lot of plants, we would suggest that even one or
two really big plants in big pots will make such a difference that
it will be worth the effort.
The conservatory is like
another room of the house but part garden too. It is worth trying to
keep the conservatory in tune with the room that it leads off from,
but at the same time you do want to feel that you are outside.
"In the conservatory, I love big bold florals, or bright chintzes, or soft checks."
