How to Make the Most Out of Your Conservatory This Summer

As the nights start to get a little brighter and the temperatures start to rise, it is safe to say that summer is well and truly on its way.

This means that rooms like conservatories are sure to be used more and more as people look for a great way to spend their afternoon, lazing about in one of the brightest areas of the house.


Sometimes, when the weather is especially nice, conservatories can get very hot and are difficult to sit in for long periods of time. That’s why installing a set of made to measure blinds means you can enjoy your conservatory at any time of year, in the hot or cold.

A room with many uses

During the winter months, a lack of daylight is associated with a type of depression know as Seasonal Affective Disorder. This can cause symptoms such as exhaustion, negative moods and binge eating.

Getting out into the sunshine has been known to cure SAD, and a room with a lot of light such as a conservatory, is the perfect answer to helping get rid of this tiring yet common problem.

Whether you use your conservatory to grow plants, to relax or to watch the kids play in the garden, make sure you are always getting the most use out of your room with a set of conservatory blinds.

Control the temperature

A conservatory acts as a room half way between the garden and the house, and the naturally light space means they are the perfect place to relax. The fact that you can sit and watch the world go by, or look at the nature in your garden, appeals to people too.

The main problem that all conservatories suffer from is control of the extreme temperature within the room. During the hot days, the beautiful weather can make the conservatory almost like magnifying glass, and the air can get extremely hot.

On the other hand, during the winter months your conservatory is in danger of being freezing, and therefore goes unused for weeks on end.

All of these problems can be solved by purchasing conservatory blinds from Thomas Sanderson. They will easily insulate room, but also protect you and your children from the harmful UV rays of the sun, and of the rising temperature.

By this simple addition to your house, you can turn a disused room into anything you want; an office, a kitchen or even a bedroom.

Tips for that cosy space

There is no reason why your conservatory should be reserved for when the weather is slightly sunny, and ignored the rest of the time.

Make sure you are getting the most out of it, by following these easy tips.

  • Put some comfy chairs in there, and perhaps a few books as well.
  • Fill with textures, mats and cushions to give it style.
  • The addition of plants will add some colour and help oxygenate the room.
  • You can even add a few aromatherapy candles for a truly relaxing experience.
  • Made to measure blinds are the item that will make the most difference to your room. They control both hot and cold temperatures, and leave a room looking chic too.

If you want to change your room from one that is barely used to one that is an integral part of the house, then contact Thomas Sanderson today on 0800 056 2929 for a free quote on your conservatory blinds.
