Most of our major supermarkets have started selling different types of festive fare, so why not start making your plans for Christmas now.
If you’re fortunate enough to own a conservatory and you’re the type of person who loves to entertain friends and family during the festive period, have you considered turning it into a dining space?
Whether you have a Victorian or Gable design, the light and airy feel of a conservatory makes it the perfect setting for hosting the annual turkey dinner. The scenery will also leave your guests transfixed in their seats.
Here’s how to make it a more luxurious substitute for the conventional dining area:
The heat and light that enters into a conservatory can damage some of the materials used to create furniture solutions.
Rattan furniture is a popular choice for conservatory furniture as it’s known for its durability. Metal, glass, stone, marble and mosaic tables are also capable of coping with the frequently changing temperatures experienced in a conservatory.
Some of us like to tuck into our turkey early, whilst others prefer to eat a little later in the day. If you fall into the latter category, bear in mind that it may be dark, so you need to get your lighting spot on.
An eye-catching chandelier will captivate and illuminate or you could place a number of candle holders on the table to bring some subtle but effective brightness to the room.
No-one wants to eat in a freezing cold conservatory. The interior needs to be fully thermally efficient and it may not be if you have an old glass or polycarbonate roof.
Get the existing roof replaced with a solid slate or tiled roof as it will prevent any coldness from the outdoors getting in. Any loss of natural light that occurs as a consequence of fitting a solid roof can be overcome by including one or more roof windows in the new roofing system.
We know how easily accidents can happen when we’re eating and drinking, so it’s useful to have water-resistant flooring fitted so that any spillages can easily be wiped away. It also needs to be able to withstand a decent amount of footfall.
Engineered wood, laminate and tiled flooring are your best options. They have their individual pros and cons, so thoroughly assess all available flooring possibilities before making a final decision.
