How To Get Your Conservatory Organised For The Summer


It’s almost time for the summer holidays, thank goodness! We all deserve some time off and if the expensiveness of hotel and camping accommodation has made you decide to take your annual summer break at home, you want to get your conservatory prepared for the occasion. 

Ultraroof Conservatory Internal Detail

A conservatory is always one of the main features of a property and it should be used to the fullest during any homecation and throughout the summer months. It will be particularly invaluable when the weather takes a turn for the worst, which it inevitably will at certain times. 

Is your conservatory summer-ready yet? There is still just about time to resolve that if it isn’t. 

Install a solid roof

Let’s hope for a heatwave or two over the next few weeks. If that occurs, it may lead to the interior of your conservatory becoming too warm though, preventing you from using the space without getting a serious sweat on. 

In this situation, you need to change your roof and replace your current roofing system with a solid tiled roof. 

A solid roof covering can be designed to fit any conservatory or orangery design and will provide far superior thermal efficiency to a traditional glass or polycarbonate roof, which will stop any overheating from occurring. 

It’s a very light roof, so you may be able to retain your current windows and doors when it’s fitted. 

Fit French, patio or bi-folding doors

It’s not just your conservatory that you should be using regularly over the summer. Your garden needs to be used just as much, especially if you have kids as they will be desperate to get outside as much as they can. 

If you have French, patio or bi-folding doors integrated into the wall that directly connects your home to your garden, it will encourage you to head outdoors a lot more often than you would at present.

The opening generated by each of these door solutions can also provide your living space with ventilation to keep it cool in hot temperatures.

Conservatory plants

Looking for a new hobby? How about getting into horticulture? 

Put some plant life in your conservatory, but not just any plants. There are some plants that are specifically suited to conservatories, and the greenery they add will give the extension a summer feel. 

A couple of years ago, Gardeners’ World Magazine unveiled their list of the 10 best plants for conservatories:

  • Mandevilla
  • Bougainvillea
  • Hoya
  • Plumbago
  • Sarracenia
  • Lapageria
  • Strelitzia
  • Hymenocallis
  • Aristolochia
  • Cacti and succulents
