Whether you use your conservatory to enjoy the garden view, eat breakfast or take afternoon tea or simply a space for your dirty walking boots, it can be difficult to get the right balance between keeping your conservatory warm enough and hot enough to actually make it enjoyable. Fortunately, there are some simple steps that can be taken to prevent your conservatory from becoming too hot in the summer and stop you having to leave it behind when the temperature rises.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your conservatory cool is by replacing your carpet with a hard floor surface that doesn’t retain heat. Flooring experts recommend laying natural hardwood floors, slate or stone tiles to help keep the room cool and easy to clean. Replacing your roof is another effective way to keep the space cooler in the summer heat. For Conservatory Roof Conversions, take a look at proceiling.co.uk
Window vents can be fitted to control ventilation and are available in a range of styles including fixed, shuttered and motorised options that allow you to keep your windows open but still protect your home from intruders.
Creating a light and airy atmosphere is another great way to keep your conservatory cool – white or pastel shades will avoid the room feeling oppressive while soft fabrics like cotton, linen and rattan garden furniture are also more breathable than heavy leather pieces. Adding a small water feature or fountain to your conservatory is also a creative way to establish a cool and relaxing atmosphere.
