Create a Stylish Conservatory with Shutters
Want to create a stylish conservatory with shutters for your London home? This article shows you how.
If you are lucky enough to have a beautiful view: over a pond, river, open countryside, or even over a pretty courtyard or decked terrace, you will want to make the most of it…and a conservatory does just that.
Used most in the spring and summer, when your outdoor space is at its best, a conservatory adds beauty, vital extra space, and helps bring light into your home. However, the constant stream of sunlight in the warmer months can be overpowering at certain times of the day, making the room uncomfortably hot and bright.
A cost-effective solution is to install plantation shutters in your conservatory. This will reduce the glare of the sun, while also making the most of the natural light during the day. This article looks at the benefits and gives ideas for decorating this room.
Adding a conservatory is one of the top home improvements in Britain, and, according to Phil Spencer, presenter of ‘Location, Location, Location’, it can add as much as 7 per cent onto the value of your property.
One of the reasons for its popularity is that a conservatory is so versatile: it can be used as a breakfast room or dining area, children’s play area, for entertaining friends, or as a quiet retreat – to read a book, wind down with yoga, or simply to sit and enjoy the view over your garden. However, regardless of what your conservatory is used for, it is essential to choose window coverings that will provide privacy, make the most of daylight, and can be closed simply and easily.
Plantation shutters are the best choice for a London home because they are so sleek and stylish, and are designed to suit all types of conservatories. As Bespoke Shutters install conservatory shutters to exact specifications, your window coverings are made to neatly match any shape or style of glass panels, so they will guard against dazzling light coming from any angle. Just alter the slats to adjust the light levels – so you can let the morning sunlight stream in – and close the slats in the afternoon, when the room starts overheating.
It is also easy to keep the glass clean as the shutters can be moved to the side when they are not in use.
Conservatory Style Guide
If you are thinking of installing a conservatory, here are a few ideas for how to decorate it.
The Natural Conservatory
A conservatory decorated with natural materials, such as stripped wooden floors and rattan or painted furniture, creates an easy transition between your interior and outdoor environment.
Decorate with colours such as beige, brown, white, cream, taupe, grey, blue and green, so your conservatory blends easily with your garden. Lots of plants will brighten this space and helps bring the outdoors, indoors. Adding cushions and throws will also add a homely feel.
If this is your preferred interior, consider installing natural wood shutters for your conservatory.
The Contemporary Conservatory
Industrial style furniture, white lacquered oriental furnishings, bright, comfy statement chairs, sofas, and vases, or dramatic sculptures…almost anything goes in a contemporary conservatory. Think clean, sleek lines and bold geometric shapes to create a room that adds interest and impact.
Consider installing white painted shutters for your interior as this will fit with almost any colour scheme, while maintaining a light, contemporary feel.
