The heart of the home

It may sound like a cliche, but the kitchen really is at the epicentre of your property. That makes extending into the garden a smart choice as the kitchen is easily accessible from the hall yet benefits from all the natural light and beautiful views, bringing the outdoors in.

With planning laws making it easier than ever to add an extension, a conservatory is a very contemporary way to achieve the kitchen diner you’ve always dreamed of.

Open up your wall space

The key to creating that light filled open plan space is to open up the wall between the existing kitchen and the conservatory completely. When you’re planning your design with your Conservatories Tewkesbury company, be very clear on whether this is the right style for you. Try aiming for an open plan design that you zone with units and a kitchen island. That way you can create different functional areas, using the natural divide of the back wall to create an island or divider.

Warm it up

There’s often a perception that Conservatories Tewkesbury and elsewhere can be chilly in the winter. Underfloor heating is a savvy choice under tiles or engineered wood flooring, while a wood burner adds instant cosiness and a real focal point.

Don’t forget to add a cosy corner with a settee where you can curl up and read a book or just contemplate the garden. The best kitchen diners have space for you to relax, too.

Enjoy the space

When you’re creating your new larger kitchen from scratch, don’t forget to enjoy the space. The conservatory allows you to flood a space with light so make the most of it by positioning your table where it’s highlighted.

Use reflective surfaces, plenty of glass and natural materials like wood to pull the space together. That way you’ll create an indoor-outdoor room that’s both highly functional and beautiful. Let the architecture of your new conservatory dictate function, leaving more utilitarian tasks for the existing space for a stunning result.
