Contrary to popular opinion, conservatories are much more than just a glorified greenhouse. With the right care and attention, your conservatory can transform into a glorious summer house for whiling away the days when the weather can’t quite make up its mind. Get the best of both worlds and enjoy maximum light flow from the comfort of your indoor living space. Read on to discover our best summer house décor ideas to dress your conservatory and make it come alive this season.

Your summer house is unlike any other room in your home. The place where your house and garden meet, it’s made for letting in light without compromising cosiness. Take advantage of this with décor in light-reflecting materials. Metallics are hugely on trend this summer, so opt for reflective accents and iridescent features. Check out our latest season’s collection and shop your favourite home décor accessories. Discover shimmering hurricane holders and lustrous lanterns to add light to your conservatory. These décor pieces catch the natural sunlight and bounce it around your room to create the illusion of a bigger and brighter space. And they’re ideal for the evening too. Pair with a PartyLite candle and watch the flickering flames transform the feeling of your conservatory. We love to use Tealight Candles to amplify the reflections and create a welcome atmosphere.

Combine your metal pieces with glass accessories to add an extra layer of style. Browse our Clearly Creative range for a personalised summer experience. Choose from our hurricane and tealight tree sets and fill with your favourite textures and materials. Pop in foliage, stones, glass or sand to make it unique to your style. Our clear, glass hurricanes offer a minimalist feel to complement the airy ambiance of your summer house. If you already have a neutral colour scheme, adding your flair to one of our Clearly Creative Hurricanes is an easy way to add a bright pop of colour without being overpowering. Light them up after dark to catch the gentle flicker of candlelight casting shadows through your summer house.

Get that feeling of being in your garden, even on the rainiest of days, by bringing nature indoors. Plants are your go-to for conservatory décor as they make brilliant transition pieces for joining up your rooms. From hanging baskets to tiered planters, add a touch of the tropical with your greenery. You can even bring in flowers from your garden for a freshly picked style. Succulents and cacti thrive when exposed to light, making them an excellent companion for sun-filled days.

Finally, play around with different shapes and sizes. Your table or seating might form the main focal point in your summer house, so experiment with filler items to plug any structural gaps. Rugs and mats can keep the the chill at bay on cooler days, while a shoe rack in copper or brass tones is an ever-practical piece to keep by the conservatory door. A round side table is a great way to offset the shape of your extension, and gives you the perfect place to rest an after dinner drink.
