Is your furniture looking tired? A conservatory can be a hostile setting for furniture, with high temperatures in the summer and chiller conditions in the winter. Naturally, this can take its toll on anything that in the room and furniture is no exception, but before chucking anything out consider purchasing some fresh scatter cushions.

A common conservatory problem is either having an empty conservatory that feels cold and impersonal or a crowded mess of a conservatory that is a headache, with the optimal spot being in the middle of the two, here is all you need to know about filling your space. You need to balance style with functionality, having a stylish space is great but remember the goal is to make a space to enjoy (not to look like a showroom image). For those with excess space to fill here are some ideas on how to accessorise your conservatory.
Side/Coffee Tables & Console Units
Depending on the size of the empty space having a table is both functional and can look great. See if there is a table in the same range as your sofa and armchairs, if there are none available then there are a wide selection of tables that you can match up online. Alternatively, for those with even more space a console unit can be dressed with plants, candles and pictures frames making it the perfect piece of furniture for you to personalise and make your own.

Baskets & Rugs
Looking for something more natural? How about a rattan basket perfect for storing blankets, logs or anything your mind can come up with. Large rattan baskets are durable, hardwearing, and fashionable. With a global shift towards environmentally friendly products, rattan baskets have seen a resurgence in the last year with a younger audience.
The final piece of the puzzle to tie everything together is a good rug. Rugs can come in all shapes, sizes and colours so finding the right one can take some time. But it will be time well spent when you find the perfect match. Tip: Look to purchase a rubber mat to stop the rug from sliding on hardwood floor.
