A conservatory is a great addition to any home, but it presents a dilemma of what to do with the space. Whether you are looking for practicality or a bit of fun, this list will help you whittle down what you want to do with your already existing or new conservatory space. If new conservatory space is what you are after, many companies such as Diamond Windows Droitwich offer a range of conservatories to suit your needs. Let’s have a look at some best ways to use a conservatory.

1. A Dining Room

Quite simply, you might place a statement table in the center of your conservatory and surround it with chairs to create your very own extravagant dining room. You can decorate with fancy tablecloths, funky placemats and coasters, and elegant centerpieces for the table. This way your conservatory will radiate the ambiance of a lavish restaurant, promising a great dining experience for you and your guests. 

2. A Living Room

A Living Room

If a dining room does not tickle your fancy, you may bring in a three-piece sofa suite, a coffee table, and a stylish rug to make a homely living room. The option is still there to entertain guests in this room, but this will exude a less formal and more relaxed atmosphere. 

3. A Kitchen Extension

If cooking is your sanctuary as opposed to resting, you may think about using your conservatory space to extend your kitchen. This will give you the space to build a breakfast bar, incorporate a dining table, and maybe even include a sofa. Similarly, with a larger kitchen, you have the space for all the latest kitchen gadgets that are exciting for any aspiring chef. 

4. A Utility Room

If you would rather revitalize your kitchen and bathroom space, you might relocate all your appliances into the conservatory to form a utility room. This way, you can have your washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, fridge, and freezer all in one convenient place. Consequently, you will be gifted with extra space in the rooms that these large appliances previously inhabited. 

5. A Garden Room

A Garden Room

Instead of convenience, you might rather opt for a room that puts you in one with nature. If this is the case, you might transform your conservatory into a garden room. You could bring comfortable patio furniture into the space with an array of indoor plants. This will give you a space to dine and entertain that is connected to your garden but keeps you warmer in winter and cooler in summer. 

6. A Breakfast Room

As opposed to your garden, you might choose to dedicate your conservatory space to the most important meal of the day. You can set up a lovely dining room table and a breakfast bar with a kettle, toaster, cereal containers, preserves, and other breakfast goods. This will imitate the feeling of staying in a hotel every morning.

7. A Family Room

Rather than the most important meal, you might choose to focus on the most important people in your life and transform your conservatory into a family room. You can bring in cozy sofas, beanbags, a TV, games, and much more to bring the family together. 

8. A Kitchen-Diner

A Kitchen-Diner

A kitchen-diner is another great way to bring people together, allowing you to entertain whilst cooking. Typically, you have to abandon your guests in the dining room whilst you go off to cook in the kitchen. A kitchen-diner creates a hybrid of the two spaces making it perfect for hosting guests. 


The possibilities are endless when it comes to renovating your conservatory space. Additionally, conservatories are energy efficient that bring light to a property, especially when you use a polycarbonate conservatory roof. What will you choose for your home?
