A conservatory is a room having glass roofing and walls, typically attached to a house on only one side, used as a greenhouse or a sunroom. Smaller garden conservatories have become popular, which may be dual-function, equally devoted to horticulture and recreation, or favor the latter, as a solarium or sunroom. The sunroom represents the most wonderful retreat in the house. Designed to admit a large amount of sunlight, sun parlours or porches have a strong connection with the exterior, thus offering unique moments of delight to the inhabitants. If you are thinking of turning an existing space into a sunroom, the gallery below will provide a bunch of fresh ideas, ready to put into practice. First on the list: pick some comfortable seating items because the sunroom functions as a second living room and you want to bring cheer to your guests. Upholstered armchairs, pillows and puffs make a great impression. Also, consider some electrical outlets around in order to support table or floor lamps. Secondly, take into consideration the temperature changes. Most of the sunrooms are built without heating systems, but you can install a fireplace to warm up the atmosphere during chilly nights.

Floor-to-ceiling windows are on the list when building a sunroom. Although they allow natural light come inside all day long, roaster days may not feel very comfortable inside. Think of long curtains, ventilating systems or pots with green plants to survive the heat. Moreover, take into consideration the fact that you can use the sunroom as dining room, too. The family needs to feel relaxed and pleased while eating, without neglecting the landscape outside.
A transitional space between the indoors and outdoors begs for thriving potted plants as the connecting element.
A large mirror on the wall makes the space look wider and brighter. As for the decorations, do not use many accessories. Pretty and simple schemes are more than enough when sun is the central guest of the room.
