5 top ways to modernise your conservatory

Have you got an old conservatory that no longer fills you with excitement and desire to want to spend time in it? “Yes” we hear you answer. Well, don’t worry – here’s our top ways to upgrade and modernise your existing conservatory. And what’s even better is that according to Nationwide, adding a conservatory, or in fact modernising a conservatory can add up to 23% to the value of your property.

Bring the outside in with bifold doorsBifold doors being folded down to open out a living area

To bring the outside in, blur the lines between your home and garden, and ultimately give you a sense of openness which we know all our customers crave, consider adding bifold doors. Available in both aluminium and uPVC materials, there are 3 benefits of bifold doors – they are highly secure, energy-efficiency, durable and great at adding the ‘wow-factor’ to your home in Essex.

Utilising a concertina fold, bifold doors stack up on one side of the room, leaving you with more space and open views of your beautiful garden. Another advantage is that bifold doors are available in over 150+ RAL colours in both single and dual colour options, so you can match the exterior and interior of your home with ease.

Add some colour to your conservatory with indoor plants

As well as opting for bifold doors to bring the outside in and modernise your conservatory, you could also do this by adding more indoor plants to your conservatory.

Indoor plants not only look lovely, bringing a sense of greenery and tranquillity to your living space, but they’re also good for our health too. This is because indoor plants improve the air quality in your home by purifying the air and releasing more oxygen into the atmosphere. And when it comes to indoor plants, we know that a lot of our customers like to have a mixture – tall plants on the floor and trailing plants on their shelves – to create focal points and a sense of balance around the room.

To modernise your conservatory, how about opting for a classic all-white décor and investing in minimalistic modern conservatory furniture such as a hanging egg pod conservatory chair? The interior of your conservatory should feel warm and welcoming; something you’re guaranteed to achieve by opting for the right conservatory furniture.

The beauty of all-white décor is that it will create a modern conservatory look and make your conservatory feel more open-plan – something we know a lot of our customer’s desire.
