What is the best colour for a conservatory?
Depending on your outlook, you’ll either be pleased or frustrated by this answer. In our opinion, there really is no ‘best colour’ for a conservatory. As with most things in the world of interior decorating, it all comes down to your preference and budget.
For most people, a ‘conservatory’ means a white uPVC and glass box. But this is only because, for a long time, the majority of conservatories were like this. It was the norm for early conservatories and orangeries to be made from white-painted wood or metal.
This isn’t the case these days. And those with a particular vision of their conservatory will usually find that they can turn it into a reality. For instance, we offer a wide range of colour finishes on our conservatories. So, whether you’re after a sleek aluminium frame, a deep-green nature room, or a rustic woodgrain finish, the choice truly is yours.
This being said, colour still requires some careful consideration. You might want to think about colour in terms of the intended use of your conservatory, as certain colours tend to work better for particular room functions.
For example, wood finishes might be better for a houseplant-filled, calm and productive home office, or even a relaxing reading room. But if you want to create a home office with a chic, professional atmosphere or a dining room for wooing guests, then darker colour shades will create a much more glamorous feel.
If you’re not too bothered about the colour (it isn’t the be-all and end-all, after all) then you can always go with classic white. Though it isn’t as trendy or ‘exciting’ as other finishes, It’s the standard go-to for a reason. White will keep your conservatory a neutral and versatile space for years to come. And if you ever want to switch up the aesthetic, you can do this by changing your furniture or adding some colourful textures and soft furnishings.
