23 Sep Tips For Creating A Cosy Conservatory This Autumn/Winter
It is fair to say that the vast majority of homeowners will use their conservatory much more in the spring and summer months than they will in autumn/winter. This usually means that this whole room is left unused for half of the year, which is undeniably a waste of such an incredible space. Thankfully, our conservatory specialists have lots of tips that can help to create a cosy conservatory that you will love to spend time in as it starts getting colder outside.
Whilst the summer sun may still be shining, it goes without saying that autumn will be here before we know it and if you’re wanting to prep your conservatory for the later end of the year, then now is the perfect time to start work. So, to help any homeowners with their conservatory transformation, below our team here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions have put together a list of brilliant ideas that you may want to consider.
Change the colour scheme
Neutral colours are incredibly popular in conservatories and many try to keep this space as light and airy as possible. Whilst this is brilliant during spring and summer months, you may find that it makes the room feel bare and cold at other times of year.
It may be worth changing the colour scheme in the room and adding in some darker colours, like earthy tones or navys and purples, will instantly add warmth to the room. If you won’t want to completely redecorate, why not add some darker blinds/curtains or even a rug, this small change will still make a difference.
Update the rooms accessories
Whether you use your conservatory as a living space or a dining space, it isn’t uncommon for this room to lack accessories. Often, conservatory specialists find that homeowners keep the space quite open and only have a lamp or a few indoor plants.
As it gets colder outside, one of the easiest ways to make the room feel more cosy is to invest in some seasonal accessories. Simply purchasing some cushions and throws/blankets for the sofas or table runners and centerpieces for a dining table can make a huge difference. These are all pieces you can easily take away again next spring/summer too.
Add in some additional lighting
Often, many homeowners simply rely on natural light flooding in through the windows and doors in their conservatory and it is very rare that they will turn on an artificial light, especially during the summer months. Some may even have little to no artificial light in the room.
When the days are shorter and generally much darker, updating the lighting in your conservatory will help to make this space much more usable. You can easily create ambiance with the right lighting and you should play around with the different types of task and accent lighting, such as storm lanterns and fairy lights.
Consider a roof replacement
The vast majority of people will get a conservatory installed with a completely glass roof. This can be brilliant in summer months if you like the heat, but during autumn and especially winter, it will make the room freezing cold and unbearable to use.
Whilst this is a permanent change, you should still consider a roof replacement this winter. There are so many benefits to doing so and it is likely that you will enjoy the space much more all year round when working with a conservatory specialist to install a solid roof. It is definitely worth looking into further and it can instantly make your conservatory usable in all months.

Hopefully, the tips above will be beneficial to any homeowners who are looking to make the most of their conservatory all year round and there is no denying that they can make such a huge difference to the look and feel of the space. You can guarantee that when creating a cosy conservatory, you will now love to spend time here during the colder months and it won’t just be a space that you spend time in when the sun is shining.
