How to Make a Conservatory Cosier for Winter

Though the winter months you’re wriggling around underneath your two pairs of socks, looking for that extra bit of heat, you can always ensure that you’re that little bit more cosy having added some sumptuous and warm decor and additions to your new conservatory. So, how can you make your conservatory cosy this winter?

Conservatories are warm places. However, it is often nice to create a comfortable looking sanctuary from the cold, to appreciate what you have more. Cushions can go a long way to making a conservatory feel that little bit cosier than it actually is. If you like the soft and plump set of a few extra cushions on furniture, you’ll be amazed at how much more ready to stare down the dark days and cool nights outside you’ll be in the arms of a new cushion.

Colours obviously also create a certain element, or feel of heat. Rich and specific darker shades of some colours such as reds, yellows and auburn create a warmer feel in a room. These can be strong against the open, bright space of a conservatory. Do remember dark doesn’t have to mean dull, but choose a colour that suits you.

Adding low lights, with dimmers, or candle-like lighting can also create that lovely comfortable, warm feel that feels like protecting you against the elements mentally as it does so in physical terms. Investing in quality fairy lights, perhaps of the LED kind can really add that sense of warmth to a room. Pendant lights, and soft bulbs are ideal.

Changing the furniture in the room can also add a sense of warmth. Sofas and certain soft furniture can create a much warmer and cosier feel for a room. Replacing older, or sometimes summer furniture can really make things all the more appealing.

Lush shaggy textures also create the impression of an increased temperature. Placing fluffy rugs create softness underfoot. Patterned fabric is also a great addition, as well as throws and chunky knits. Natural foliage can also greatly benefit a conservatory and make it that little bit warmer.

Of course, adding your own personal appeal to the room and a little of your own taste is also a great way to increase the appeal of your conservatories. Filling a room with nice paintings, sculptures, books and photos of family and friends can greatly increase the feeling of warmth and the joy you get from your conservatory. Lots of accessories in warm colours, such as curtains also increase the element of heat in the room. These are also great for keeping additional heat in.

By looking into the aforementioned ideas for your conservatory, you can greatly increase the sense of warmth and your willingness to stay there in the cold January and February months.
