How To Bring Your Conservatory Interior Up-To-Date For The Summer

The summer holidays will be a bit different for many families this year. Instead of taking to the skies, a lot of them will be taking a homecation, i.e. remaining at home. 

There’s lots of fun to be had doing that though, especially if you have an extension, like a conservatory, that you can use for lounging in, playing with the kids and generally resting up. 

You could end up relying on your conservatory for much of your home holidaying as who knows what the weather will be like? We’ve had it all so far – searing heat and heavy rainfall. 

When it pours down and you have to take refuge in your extension, you won’t mind so much if it’s summer-ready. 

How do you make a conservatory summer-ready? Pretty easily as it happens…

Get a solid roof installed

Does the inside of your conservatory really burn up in warm conditions and become unusable? It probably needs a new roof, and possibly new energy efficient windows and doors too. 

We can take out your current glass or polycarbonate roof and exchange it for a solid tiled roof which will be custom-made for your particular conservatory style. 

Solid roofs are so lightweight, so if your windows and doors remain thermally efficient and robust enough, they could be retained, but it’s no difficulty replacing them too. 

Adding this roof covering, such as the UltraRoof, will stop the weather having any impact on the feel of your extension. 

Integrate a French, patio or bi-folding door

To minimise the frustration of not being able to enjoy the outdoors when conditions are bad, open out the extension, without the rain coming in, which you can do when it has French, patio or bi-folding doors integrated into the structure. 

You want to have it assimilated into a facet that faces your garden as then you can make a fast dash towards it when the rain stops. The cool breeze that comes in will feel nice too on those stuffy days. 

Place some plants inside

Are you the green-fingered type? If you are, plants aren’t just meant for your garden. They can also be brought into your conservatory, grown and displayed around the space. 

Last year, Gardeners’ World Magazine compiled what they believe to be the best 10 plants for conservatories:


  • Mandevilla
  • Bougainvillea
  • Hoya
  • Plumbago
  • Sarracenia
  • Lapageria
  • Strelitzia
  • Hymenocallis
  • Aristolochia
  • Cacti and succulents


Our summer sale has just started and you will find that it includes discounts on products like solid roofs, windows and doors, giving you a chance to ready your extension for summer at a low cost.
