Spring into Spring

We’re excited here at 2Hot2Cold. The clocks are changing, the evenings are getting lighter, and you can feel that spring is in the air.

If you’ve got a conservatory, now is the time to give it a little bit of love in order to get it ready for the finer weather. After all, there is nothing better than watching the sun go down in the comfort of your armchair and the privacy of your own conservatory.

So, if your conservatory is looking a little tired after the long winter months, here are five ideas to help you spruce it up and get it ready for the easing of lockdown restrictions:

  1. Go big on botanicals. Botanicals are very much still the trend and you can incorporate them in your conservatory in any number of ways. Wallpaper on a solid wall with a botanical pattern to make it a feature, choosing botanical cushions or blinds, or add some botanical ornaments (think glossy pineapples)!
  2. Replace tired plants. Most houseplants just love being in a conservatory, but after the winter we’ve had, who can blame them if they’re a little jaded. Mandevilla, Bougainvillea, Hoya, Plumbago and Sarracenia all do particularly well, and houseplants have great benefits for our mental health as well as helping to clean the air that we breathe.
  3. Reclaim that table that the kids have been using as a desk during home-schooling and put it in the conservatory. Decorate it with beautiful flowers, your favourite pottery or glassware, or an enormous bowl of chocolate eggs!
  4. Do a deep clean. Ok, so not as much fun as buying cushions and plants, but a really good clean inside and out can do wonders when it comes to washing away the winter dirt and adding a bit of sparkle. Clean any gutters, wash and polish the windows, and if you haven’t used it over the winter check for mould and cobwebs!
  5. Call us, of course!! If you don’t use your conservatory because it’s too hot, too cold, or just too shabby, it may be time to replace your conservatory roof or ceiling. This can not only add to your conservatory’s lifespan, it also reduces the need to clean, provides amazing insulation and probably costs less than you think. It can usually all be done and dusted in just a couple of days and did we mention that our new conservatory ceilings look stunning!

How big is your footprint?

How big is your footprint?

What most people don’t realise is that the biggest source of the carbon footprint you leave, is your home and household emissions. According to Nesta, “domestic energy use accounts for more than 21 % of UK greenhouse gas emissions each year.” The Office for National Statistics claim that households have been the single biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the UK since 2015 and account for almost 28% of the UK’s total emissions.

Is the rain getting you down?

Yup, it’s getting a bit boring now. After all, with summer travel still difficult and all the challenges of the last 18 months, we do all really need some warm sunny weather and some long balmy days spent in the garden.

Check your seals

As the sun finally comes out after weeks of rain, there’s been a collective sigh of relief across the UK. Summer is here at last and if we can’t go on holiday, we can at least enjoy some long sunny days. But that said, if you’re a traditional conservatory owner, things might look a little different.

Stay or sell?

Stay or sell?

There is no doubt that Covid 19 has changed many lives for good. In the space of 12 months working from home has become the norm with Zoom and online conferencing becoming second nature, and many large employers taking the decision to permanently downsize office space. Although the country is gradually re-opening, it is unlikely that working practices and lives will ever completely return to how things were before March 2020.
