This can be a great look if your conservatory doors open out into the garden, it can almost look like an extension of your garden.

Many houses do not have enough room for a dining room, many resort to eating from their laps in the living room. However, you can easily use this new space as a place to eat as it’s nice and quiet, plus many have more than enough room to have a large dining table. It’s also nice to be sat near the garden when you’re eating, it can be very calming and relaxing for all of the family.

Fancy something different in your home? Then why not get in touch with the stars by creating a room dedicated to outer space. You can stare into the stars from the comfort of a sofa or you can even get a telescope so you can get up close and personal with galaxies. It’s a hobby you might not have thought to get into, but one that can be very rewarding to some. If you’re more into science fiction, you can always theme the room around that instead.

On a summers day you can practice in the garden, but in wetter seasons you can simply play inside with the view of the garden for inspiration. It’s a great place to clear your head and focus on your art.

Make it an animal haven, have lots of toys and plenty of places to rest their weary heads.
