Add some contemporary pictures, ornaments, vases and flowers to soften the look and make it feel inviting, even if it is a functional area for you.
Are you fed up of the clutter in every room of your house? Why not fill your conservatory with a pool table, dartboard, plasma screen on the wall and a mini-fridge full of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages if you fancy it.

Using your conservatory as an office allows you to separate work from your home life and it provides you with a quiet space to hold meetings and conference calls.

Don’t just make it functional and bland, make it a place you want to go by adding soft furnishings, flowers and photos of the family.

You can make it multi-functional by using it as a living room and bedroom by having a big comfy sofa bed in there which can be easily converted when you need it.
A conservatory is a popular room to enjoy some relaxation – a little escape haven for us all so why not make it a defined and useable space.
A conservatory can add much-needed living space to a home and as long as it is created with a use in mind then they are a fantastic, light, open and airy rooms that can connect you to the outdoors.

Many people are unable to enjoy their conservatory throughout the year because it’s either too hot or too cold. A new thermally efficient Tiled Conservatory Roof will transform your conservatory’s temperature, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter, enabling you and your family to enjoy the space that is already there but not useable.
If you’re thinking about a new conservatory roof then tiles or solid conservatory roof panels will be the solution that offers you the modern look you are looking for without the expense of demolishing the existing conservatory and starting again from scratch. Tiles and panels are now designed to slot together, making the installation quick and easy.
A new tiled conservatory roof offers added strength to your existing conservatory, a modern look, a comfortable temperature all year round and no need to be looking at dirty or smeary glass or polycarbonate roof panels that are so difficult to keep clean. You can include roof lights into your new tiled roof and this ensures you still get natural light coming through the ceiling.
When you are considering replacing your conservatory roof, think about what you want from the room, is it a spring-summer escape or do you want to be able to use it all year round, as this will determine the type of roof you replace it with.
What are the Benefits of a Guardian Roof?
The lightweight, insulated Guardian™ roof system was designed and developed over a ten year period with one purpose – to replace the typical glass or polycarbonate roof that was used in the construction of most UK conservatories.
The main focus of the design was the dynamics and performance, however, the overall weight of the replacement roof was also critical as it needed to be light enough to be installed onto existing conservatory windows, doors and frames. Extensive tests were carried out during its design and it went through vigorous structural and thermal standards for compliance and quality regulations and approval. The result is a brilliant modern looking product which is an easy and practical solution to home improvement.
