With Christmas fast approaching, it is time to think about how to decorate your conservatory for Christmas. It can sometimes be easy to overlook this room when putting up Christmas decorations as people tend to focus on the living room rather than the extension. However, if you are planning on having visitors over in the festive season then you might need this space more than normal.
Here are some great ideas as to how to make your conservatory look cosy and Christmassy this year.
There are a few different colour schemes you could consider that are very festive. This may depend on what style and colour scheme you already have in the room as you don’t want to create clashing colours in your Christmas conservatory.
Red and Green – These are very traditional winter colours and they work best with a similarly traditional conservatory.
Silver and Gold – Go all out for luxury by using lots of silver and gold in your colour scheme. For a splash more colour, you could also include some red.
White – Why not turn your conservatory into a winter wonderland using lots of white for decoration. This creates the image of snow and has a Christmassy feel to it. This works best with a contemporary conservatory.
Multi-Coloured – Give yourself a retro Christmas which may remind you of your own childhood Christmases by using lots of different coloured lights and perhaps some tinsel too. You could even go one step further and create your own grotto for some festive fun.
Your glass room is the place where the inside meets the outside so some winter plants such as holly and ivy are a great idea to make this room feel festive. You could put a Christmas tree up in this room as it will add to the ambience of the room and maybe a safer option than the living room if you have children or animals who might knock over the tree if it was more centrally placed. Alternatively, you could treat yourself to two Christmas trees and put one in the conservatory and one in the living room or hallway.
Lighting is an important consideration. Cosy lighting can be created by putting up some fairy lights. Candles are also a great way to make a room look festive. Use scented ones such as gingerbread or pine to add to the festive feel in the room.
The type of soft furnishing you will be able to use clearly depends on the furniture you already have in the room. For example, if you have a sofa, a festive throw will make the room look cosy and may add some joviality to the room for the season.
If you have a dining table in the conservatory, it looks wonderful if you keep the table laid at this time of year and use table decorations such as crackers to give the room a festive feel.
Hopefully, this has given you some ideas for your conservatory or orangery this Christmas. Happy decorating; we’re sure it will look fabulous!
