Inspiration for Your Interior: Bringing Your Conservatory to Life

The inside of your conservatory matters just as much as the outside. From choosing the right furniture, through to lighting your space and optimally siting objects to create a pleasing effect, there’s lots to think about.

In this short article, we’ll take a look at some of the in-vogue trends that are influencing interior conservatory design and explain how they can be put into practice using Ultraframe’s range of products.


Choosing the Right Flooring

The recent trend in interior conservatory design has seen the focus shift toward:

  • Underfloor Heating.  People are spending more time in their conservatories than ever before. That’s why underfloor heating has risen in popularity. Homeowners can choose between two different systems – wet or electric. It’s important to use flooring that won’t act as a heat blocker, which means carpet might not be the best choice.
  • Flagstone Tiling. If you want to achieve a rustic look, flagstone tiles will enhance the design of your conservatory. Neutral grey tones in your flooring will help create an authentic look that’ll be offset by light entry – providing you use a system like our Livinroof or Ultraroof, which are solid roof systems that allow for the insertion of glazed panels.
  • Oak Flooring. Have you got your heart set on an extension? Oak flooring is ideal for open plan rooms like our Glass Performance Extension. By using light citrus colours – or a similar reflective shade – you’ll be able to harness the natural quality of the light washing through your new room, further accentuating a sense of interior space.


Selecting the Right Furniture

Make the most of your new flooring by choosing furniture that ties in thematically with your design choices and as follows:

  • Contrasting Styles. Homeowners are favouring a post-modern approach these days. This means you could use a traditional design internally that contrasts with the modern exterior of your new room. For example, you could use timber tables and chairs and carpets throughout. This would work perfectly with our Livinroof or Ultraroof, both of which include an internal ceiling pelmet as standard to deliver an authentic real room experience.
  • Contemporary Look. Create an interior space that stands out by using outdoor furniture inside. Patio furniture might work well when used in tandem with a white ceramic floor, especially if is a sharp colour – like grey or black.


Selecting Your Colour Scheme

There’s no right or wrong way to decorate your conservatory. It’s your space, and the shade you choose should dovetail in with the other choices you’ve made. This way, your flooring, furniture and colour scheme will work together harmoniously.

Due to focus on the importance of light, natural and neutral colours have risen in popularity. That’s because they allow light to reflect around the room, which creates a better impression of space and connects the room seamlessly to the outdoors.
