Summer is just around the corner and we’re all enjoying the recent sunny weather most of the country has had. It’s this time of year where we start to put our dream plans into action as the weather is much more suited to building work. So how about that conservatory you’ve always wanted?

A conservatory is a great extension to any home. It’s a versatile space that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as entertaining and dining. It’s also the perfect room to sit in to enjoy your garden in the spring and autumn when it’s not always warm enough to sit outside.

If you’re not sure what to do with your conservatory, take a look at our 5 ways to make the most out of it.

Extension to the kitchen

If you’ve got a small kitchen, the best way to utilise a conservatory can be to extend the kitchen out. You can turn what was a tight space into a beautiful open plan kitchen diner, which is perfect for entertaining and family meal times.

Garden room

This is one of our favourite ways to make the most out of your new extension. A garden room is arguably one of the original uses for a conservatory, and that makes it a classic. Use the garden room for informal entertaining and eating, and of course enjoying your wonderful garden all year round. Keep the windows undressed to get the best views.

Country breakfast diner

What better way to enjoy your breakfast than looking out into the garden? Create a little breakfast area in your conservatory to make the most of your garden all year round.

Country seating area

This conservatory embraces the country look and provides a comfortable and relaxing space for you to enjoy whatever the time of day. The table makes it perfect for eating informal meals whilst the large doors give you a gateway into your garden from your seat.

Tea room

Turn your conservatory into a rustic tearoom fit for all of your guests. Enjoy a spot of afternoon tea by your garden and take advantage of the light coming through the expansive windows.
