Watching the Rugby World Cup from your orangery?

Orangery interior living room with TV

Will you be watching the Rugby World Cup this weekend from your orangery?

Whilst tomorrow's Brexit vote might be foremost in most peoples' minds(!), we're thinking positively about the quarter finals of the Rugby World Cup being played in Japan and the first knock-out matches of the tournament. With the weather forecast back here in the UK continuing to disappoint, we recommend a Saturday and Sunday morning spent in your orangery watching the rugby over an extended breakfast.

Bringing us closer to the outdoors and therefore nature, is one of the many benefits of adding an orangery to your home. A glazed extension, whether it is an orangery or garden room, will also add value and create a wonderfully practical new living space – but it the connection to the outside environment that is worth highlighting further.

Inspiration from Pinterest

For anyone considering a home improvement project such as adding a conservatory or an orangery, there is clearly a wealth of inspiration available online. Being able to see photos of garden rooms or kitchen extensions or different paint colours can help influence our thinking and assist with decision-making.

Weather for spending time at home

Orangeries home improvement interior design

Whilst here in the UK we are all experts at discussing the weather(!), this unseasonably wet and windy spell we’re currently experiencing is perhaps best for spending some time in our homes, where an orangery or conservatory is undoubtedly the best room for relaxing and enjoying the Summer, no matter what it throws at us.
