Now that daylight hours are at their minimum, it is even more important to have good lighting inside your home. 

If you are fortunate enough to have a conservatory, then you have the opportunity to get very creative with the lighting inside of it and can potentially create the ideal atmosphere in your house. This will allow you to completely unwind and relax in your home. So, we asked fashion and homeware sales website Love the Sales for some tips on what sort of lighting options fit with a conservatory and how best to utilise them.

Low level Lighting                    

Low lighting is absolutely ideal if you want to create a more relaxed, elegant and soft mood. You can achieve this kind of serene ambiance with basic dimmer switches and the downcast shades that come with table lamps. This can really make the conservatory space seem a lot more attractive and is perfect for those long winter nights. 


Although chandeliers used to be associated with only the wealthy and believed to make a grand and luxurious statement, this form of lighting is now available in a wide variety of different colours (including quirky modern) and styles. So it won't be too difficult to find the perfect one to go inside your conservatory. For example, a chandelier's glass sometimes can be too extreme inside of a glass conservatory. If that is the case you can always choose a metal or acrylic one instead.

Paper lanterns

There are many lightweight paper lanterns that are available in many different colours and sizes, making it easy to select ones that are perfect for the look and feel that you desire. You can use these shades independently with batteries or with existing light fittings. To make your own decorative statement, you could try to gather them together or hang them up in rows. You can buy lovely hanging lanterns here.

Floor lamps

This type of lamp can be used instead of traditional wall or ceiling lights. Whether you select something more traditional or contemporary, placing a floor lamp in the corner of the conservatory can help to set the proper tone, which is emitted from a gentle and soft light.

Fairy Lights

In order to provide your conservatory room with a quaint and idyllic setting, you can always use fairy lights. They are available in many different colours, shapes and styles. You can string them in any area of the room. Choose simple white lights if you'd like a more chic and sophisticated look. Go for something more decorative or brighter, like flower shapes, if you are wanting to add a dash of colour. Now that we are in the middle of the Christmas season, there should be many fine Christmas fairly lights that are available that can provide your conservatory with a magical feeling.

Garden lights                                                                                                     

If you like spending time looking at the surrounding garden from your conservatory, then you should consider adding garden lights. This might not be considered to be actual conservatory lighting. However, it still will provide the setting with a beautiful and peaceful ambiance. Outdoor fairy lights, solar lights, or even underwater lights with a pond or water feature can help to make your garden really stand out and provide it with a very elegant atmosphere.


Now that we have provided you with some tips on the best conservatory lighting that is available, you can start decorating your conservatory according to your taste, and inspired by the great lighting ideas that we have given you.
