How to prepare your conservatory for summer

With plenty of warmth, sunshine and hopefully not too much rain, summer is a great time to enjoy your conservatory. However, to make the most of it, you need to ensure your space is prepared with your lifestyle, personal tastes and requirements in mind. Below, we've detailed a few critical steps to transform a lifeless conservatory into a beautiful, comfortable and relaxing hub for bliss summer days.

Declutter and clean

First things first, a clean and tidy conservatory will always be easier to enjoy! Take the time to declutter and remove any unnecessary items, such as extra furniture or plants that you no longer want or use. You might also want to consider investing in some new storage solutions or shelving if needed to easily keep your conservatory space looking neat and tidy.

Choose the right furniture

It's essential to consider the space available and think about how you want to use it. You may, for instance, be looking for a relaxing area for reading or napping in the summer sun, so perhaps opt for some comfy armchairs or lightweight daybeds. Alternatively, if you have children likely to be playing in the conservatory throughout the warmer months, you may need to think carefully about adding rugs and bookshelves, perhaps creating a mini play area.

Consider a roof replacement

Did you know that over 95% of conservatories installed over the last 25 years have a polycarbonate roof? This material lets in plenty of light, yet it also makes the conservatory unbearable for large chunks of the year, especially during peak summertime. If your conservatory has a glass or polycarbonate roof, you might want to consider having it replaced. Not only will this help keep the space cooler in the summer months, but it will also reduce noise from rain and make the conservatory more energy-efficient all year round.

Incorporate blinds and curtains

If you don't already have blinds or curtains on your conservatory windows, now is the perfect time to add them. This can help keep the summer sun at bay and add a touch of privacy. There are many different designs to choose from, so whether you're looking for something modern and minimalistic, or something more floral that complements existing decor, there's sure to be something out there to suit you.

Bring the outdoors in

You can create a truly relaxing oasis by adding your favourite plants to your conservatory. This will help boost your mood and well-being, but it will also help to improve air quality and make the whole space feel and smell fresher!


Once you've decluttered, cleaned and chosen the right furniture, it's time to start accessorising. This is where you can inject some personality into the space and make it feel like your own. Cushions, throws and rugs are all great ways to add comfort and style, while candles, vases and lanterns can help to create a calming ambience.
