A) You can’t go mad with furniture
It’s vitally important that you don’t overload your conservatory with large items or pieces of furniture such as sofas, dressers or cabinets as these are hard to fit and also difficult to move if you want to change the layout in the future.

C) Don’t let any storage block the light
With storage in a conservatory, they can sometimes feel claustrophobic which is why it’s good to not block the windows and light.

You can add serious value to the price of your home with a well laid out and well designed conservatory. Easier House researched conservatory prices and claim they can cost anywhere up to £20,000 in the current market. So if you have one, it’s wise to make the most of it.
