The conservatory garden room is an age old space that was once used exclusively for growing exotic species of plants. But in our modern age, we expect our spaces to be multifunctional and practical. Giving so much space to an indoor garden seems unthinkable.
The modern conservatory garden room is completely different from the ones of old. Technology has allowed us to build spaces that are airy, light filled and ambient. With the use of thermally efficient glass a new conservatory is the ultimate living space.
That does not mean however, that the modern conservatory cannot also house a garden and give you the best of both worlds. Your conservatory can provide the perfect link between your house and garden.
