Space is a precious commodity in this day and age, and home owners are always looking for ways to maximise the available space in their property while considerably increasing its value. Erecting a conservatory is one of the easiest and quickest ways to transform a cramped house in to a comfortable home, offering oodles of additional space in which you can work, rest and play. From grand kitchen diners and spacious studies, to airy playrooms and cosy snugs, conservatories provide an uber versatile area for your family and friends to enjoy.
As the popularity of conservatory extensions continue to grow, so too does the range of styles that are available to today’s home owners. Here we list the top trends sweeping the home improvements industry and how you can make you conservatory complement your interior style.
With the huge success of recent period dramas such as Downton Abbey, Poldark and Victoria, it is unsurprising that interior styling has gone back to the Victorian era. Conservatories really came into their own in the nineteenth-century and the opulent, decorative Victorian styling remains as popular as ever in 2016. Think gothic windows, curved frames and ornate ironmongery to create the look for yourself.
Outdoor living can be enjoyed all year round thanks to the superb bi-folding doors and retractable ceilings available on the modern conservatory models. You can add these features to your conservatory to create a stunning living area that seamlessly flows into both your home and your garden, and they are the perfect solution to models with solid conservatory roofs as they allow plenty of natural light to flood the room.
Curved conservatories are big news for 2016, as more and more home owners step away from the traditional box style in favour of more contemporary shapes. From curved roofs to curved frames, these soft organic conservatory styles flow seamlessly from the existing building while adding elegance and interest.
Go for Grey
There is no doubt that grey is the colour of 2016, and interior design is awash with every shade available, so why not extend this colour scheme to your conservatory? Grey perfectly complements both modern and period styling, and we just love this classic conservatory frame in a dark grey shade that creates a chic, sophisticated living area.
