Since renting my first home, I’m always looking into ways to update the property. After all, I want it to become the perfect place. And as we enter the new year, it’s great to think of some ideas of how to give the home a revamp. One thing which has crossed my mind is adding a conservatory to the home. It gives you more space to hold all your essentials, and it can be perfect if you want great views out on the garden. It can be a costly purchase (around 10k), but can add 7% to your overall value which could be worth it when you sell up! Therefore, if you do decide to add a conservatory to your humble abode, here are some ideas of what you can do to make it the best area of the home.
Make a relaxing sanctuary
It’s often hard to find a place in the house to relax. After all, you sometimes don’t want to go chill out on your bed. But you need somewhere quiet after you have got home from work to destress. Therefore, you could make your conservatory into a relaxing sanctuary. You could put a cosy chair in there which will be perfect to relax in after work. And you could even get a yoga mat for the room so that you can do some poses to wind down after a stressful day. Just make sure you shut the conservatory door to keep sounds from the home away!
Create a pet hub
It’s always challenging to find somewhere for your fur babies to go. After all, sometimes they can end up ruining the living room! Therefore, a conservatory could be a perfect place for your pets. You could put their beds and scratching posts in there, and they can chill out in the room. Being able to look out on the garden will also be ideal for your beloved furry friends. It can make your kitties feel more at home in the humble abode!
Turn it into a reading hub
I love sitting down and reading a good book. After all, it can help you to unwind after a busy day. And it can help you to wake up properly before you have to go to work in the morning. Therefore, you should consider making your conservatory into a reading hub where you can spend time chilling out with a good book. Invest in plenty of shelves which can showcase your favourite novels. It can feel like you have your very own library in your humble abode! Just make sure when you are looking at conservatories, you think about heating options. After all, you want to be able to use your reading hub during the colder months too. Therefore, underfloor heating might be something you consider to ensure you can use the conservatory in winter!
And if you aren’t lucky enough to have a dining room in your home, you could consider making the conservatory a place where you could dine in style. Add a dining table and chairs, and then you can consume food in the room while overlooking the garden. It will be perfect when it’s time for dinner parties!
