Conservatory Decorating ideas - magnolia just wont do

You would think that as most conservatoires are of a frame and glass construction there would not be many options or ideas for decorating a conservatory. However, there is often quite a lot of wall and floor surfaces within the conservatory extension that requires some thought on how to cover it or decorate it.

An example would be the existing house outside wall that now becomes internal within the conservatory extension. If you were to include the area of walling above the door sets and into the roof void of the conservatory the potential decorating wall area is often vast. So the question here for the decorating ideas within the conservatory is do you leave it as brick in the raw or do you plaster the wall and either paint it or cover it in a wall paper covering.

My preference as a decorating idea for a conservatory would be to have the existing house wall plastered and painted in a deep rich colour but it is a very personal choice.

Other conservatory decorating ideas could be to do with the dwarf walls - sometimes they are made from cavity brick a blockwork and other designs feature them as insulated panels as part of the conservatory framing. Other conservatory designs have nothing but floor to ceiling glazing with no dwarf walls at all.

The only remaining area of the conservatory open for decorating ideas would be the floor. Many conservatories are tiled and the choice of design and materials are vast. Other flooring materials could be slate, quarry tiles and even laminate or real wood flooring.

Very few conservatories seem to have carpets and I think this is more to do with tradition rather than client requirements. Also conservatoires are also often seen as a half way point between bringing the external garden inside so carpets are usually an inappropriate decorating materials for the floors.
