Lockdown has seemingly put Britain ‘on hold’ until further notice, although the same can’t be said for the home improvement sector which is as buoyant as ever. Searches for improvements like conservatories and patio doors have notably increased, with quality home improvements providing a much-needed mental health boost through these tough times. Design and renovation trends for 2020 also experienced a staggering increase in the creation of separate living spaces, up 350% in 2020 compared to 2019.
So, if staying home has made you realise you need a bit more room to breathe, here are some fashionable conservatory ideas to inspire you.

Turn your conservatory into a home office
Through the pandemic, many East Midlands homeowners have had no option but to keep calm and carry on working from their kitchen tables, sofas, floors; anywhere that provides a bit of respite to get the job done.
