With the summer months coming to an end and the colder, wet weather fast approaching, it may seem that the days of enjoying your garden and conservatory are slowly coming to a halt.
If you find you don’t tend to you use your conservatory as much during the colder months, maybe it’s old and draughty, or there’s not a real purpose to it, then read our top tips for making the most of the space, no matter what the time of year.
1. Choose a Solid Conservatory Roof
Replacing a glazed roof with a solid conservatory roof is a popular choice for homeowners who want to create an extension-like finish, without the hassle, cost and construction work!
Solid conservatory roof systems like the Leka Solid Roof are innovatively designed with the latest technology to regulate the temperature of your conservatory throughout the year, by using effective ventilation and insulation. Unlike traditional glazed conservatory roofs, a solid conservatory roof helps to create a space that is comfortable whatever the weather, creating a space that the whole family can use.
The Leka solid conservatory roof is designed with your home in mind. It can be manufactured bespoke to your existing conservatory frames, making it a simple and cost-effective solution to transform the space, with lots of styles and tile options to seamlessly match with your home.
2. Give it a Purpose
Not sure how to make the most out of your conservatory? Make it your own space and give it specific purpose.
With a solid conservatory roof, a conservatory easily transforms into an extension of the home, giving you extra space that can be used by the whole family throughout the year.
Why not turn it into a separate living area to relax in, or a dining area for entertaining guests?
The flexibility of a solid roof conservatory means it can be turned into a cosy haven during the cooler months, keeping the heat in and draughts out, whilst blending with the outdoors during the summer, with lots of added ventilation and no direct glare from the sun.
3. Decorate to your Taste
Decoration is key for making the most out of a conservatory. Try simple changes to your décor to make your solid roof conservatory a more stylish space. Sprucing up the area with bright colours, comfy furniture, cosy rugs and accessories creates a warm and inviting family area.
4. Let in the Light
Worried a solid conservatory roof will darken the space? Adding a rooflight gives an added layer of ventilation and makes sure that your conservatory will always stay flooded with natural daylight.
A Velux rooflight can be included with your Leka conservatory roof design, to give you all the light, ventilation and space that you need to make the most of your conservatory.
5. Connect it to your Garden
Adding bifold doors and sliding doors to a conservatory is a great way to open up your living space and connect it to the garden. Not only do they provide a practical entrance to your garden, with door panels that fold away to completely open up the space between the room and the outdoors, they also include wide expanses of glass that frame the views of your garden, even when closed.
