A conservatory is a great way to add extra space on to your house and in the summer months they are also a lovely space to relax in with a view over the garden – but during the winter, many people find that their conservatories are cold and uninviting places so sadly are not able to make as much use from the room during the colder months of the year.
However, it doesn’t need to be this way – there are lots of ways that you can warm up your conservatory depending on your budget and your needs – here are a few ways to get your conservatory feeling cosy, even on the cold days of winter…
Carpets and rugs – These are a great way to keep heat inside. A conservatory traditionally has a hard floor in wood or stone which will also feel colder underfoot, so a big fluffy rug or even a new carpet is the perfect way to lock some heat into your conservatory.
Windows – Conservatories tend to have a lot of glass which does let more cold in, so to keep the heat in your home have a look for some thermal curtains or blinds to go in there. This will make a huge difference to the temperature.
Heating – Adding a radiator is possible, but because it requires planning permission to connect it to the rest of the houses central heating system it is not something that most people do. However, it is certainly possible to heat a conservatory – electric underfloor heating Gloucestershire based company Parsons Flooring specialise in heating conservatories via the floor, and if that isn’t for you, you can purchase electric wall mounted radiators that are as good as a centrally heated one.
