If you’ve always loved the look of a conservatory but just didn’t know how you would use one, consider making this new part of your home into a small kitchen that you can enjoy whilst you’re reading or relaxing admiring your garden. You can design a kitchen space that is versatile and one that can accommodate your entertaining needs no matter what the occasion. With some creative ideas, some careful planning, and plenty of attention to the small things you can personalise this new and inviting room in your home and give it a meaningful purpose.

  1. Select cabinetry that will house your appliances, glassware, and other necessary items that you use when entertaining. Choose granite worktops that complement your decor and that pick up some of the fabrics and other furnishings that you use in the conservatory. With so much natural light permeating the space, pale coloured cabinetry will make an excellent statement of style. You should also consider using an island with a granite surface; this island can double as a work space or dining table where you and your guests can enjoy meals.

  2. If you have recently remodelled your old kitchen see if there are some pieces of cabinetry and old laminate worktops that can be repurposed in your new conservatory kitchen. Once you have the cabinets in your new space add granite worktops that can serve as end tables, coffee tables, or as occasional tables in areas where you and your guests can sit with a cup of tea and chat.

  3. Choose a colour theme in your conservatory that carries out your interior design in a dramatic way; this room is impressive with the views that you can see outside your windows and a continuation of your fine furnishings and colour patterns will enhance the look of your conservatory even more.

  4. As a finishing touch to your conservatory kitchen, consider using stainless steel styles for your appliances. Their sheen will be illuminated by the natural light and provide your conservatory with a more modern and updated look. With the right type of flooring, some exquisite lighting, and furnishings that are comfortable and inviting, your new space will be your favourite room in the house.

With granite worktops on your cabinetry and an island that you can use as a food preparation area and for dining, you’ll be able to clean up quickly and without much effort. Simply use warm water and some mild detergent so that the granite will hold its lustre and continue to enhance the entire look of your room. Use some special under-the-counter lighting to highlight the deep, rich look of your granite; you may also want to include some interesting pendulum lights above the island so that you can see well to prepare your food for cooking. With the lovely surroundings of your conservatory you can dine in elegant style every evening.
