If so, you should convert your conservatory into a dining area so that you, and the rest of the family, have a sublime setting to sample your best dishes.
Conservatories don’t just solely have to be used as a seating area. When you have the right sort of setup, you can also wine and dine in them.
It’s sensible to designate your conservatory as a dining spot when your current dining room is too small to accommodate several diners, or you don’t actually have one and eat all your meals camped out on the sofa.
Start off by removing your current furniture from the extension, and then make your choice of dining table the central focus of the extension, buying a table big enough to seat plenty of people.
It could be a chunky rustic table made from a robust oak, or a shiny transparent glass table that glistens.
If you have concerns that your diners will be sweating or shivering when they tuck in at mealtimes because your conservatory offers poor thermal efficiency, the application of a solid roof will sort things.
In summer, you will of course be able to stay seated at the dining table until late at night without any artificial lighting, but, come winter, you need a source of lighting to illuminate the interior. A few, simple floor lamps might be enough, or you could have spotlights fitted when there is an internal pelmet to house them.
Your conservatory might be adjoined to your kitchen, which will make the transportation of meals from the kitchen to the dining table simple, easier still if you add a set of patio, French or bi-folding doors in the aperture between the two rooms. Leave the doors open at mealtimes to create an open-plan layout.
