Conservatory refurbished with a Metrotile Lightweight Roof System Shingle Antique Red

Your conservatory should be a calming and relaxing space that you can enjoy all year round, it might be more popular in the summer and spring, but a good conservatory should be habitable whatever time of year it is.

For a lot of people with glass or PVC roofed conservatories, they unfortunately find that the space is too cold in the winter to use regularly. This can result in a large part of the home being “off-limits” for long periods of time.

Now, of course, keeping your conservatory warm is something that can be achieved in a wide number of ways. You could invest in some underfloor heating, get a radiator installed or simply purchase an electric heater you can plug in and use regularly.

But while these are all perfectly acceptable options, you don’t have to use electric appliances to warm a conservatory up, you can do it all simply by redecorating. There are a large number of ways you can go about doing this, so we are going to take a look at some of the most popular ways you can warm up your conservatory, simply by redecorating it.

Installing Blinds

Blinds aren’t just a fashionable way to keep your conservatory looking trendy, they are very useful when it comes to keeping your conservatory warm. Blinds can help keep your conservatory warm in a number of ways; for one they help block drafts and you can also get heat insulating blinds as well which will keep heat trapped in your conservatory.

Blinds are useful for placing over windows, which will no doubt be useful in a conservatory but there are also roofing blinds available as well. Blinds come in all kinds of colours but if you go for lighter colours they can reflect the heat as well, meaning you will not be overheating in the summer, another common issue with PVC roofs.


When it comes to keeping your conservatory warm, your furniture can make a big impact, a few simple touches like adding a plush rug, blankets or some decorative throws over your chairs or sofa can make a huge difference and help make your conservatory much cosier.

A Lick of Paint

A fresh coat of paint can do a lot to keep your conservatory warm, paint won’t just help keep the draft out, but it will also help capture heat. Some forms of paint are also designed to help absorb heat better as well.
