When you're planning on decorating a room such as a conservatory
it is tempting to look through interior design pages, pick a style you like and emulate it exactly.
While this will ensure that you are on-trend, it doesn't allow a space to say much about your personality.
A home is a place in which you live your life so it should really reflect your experiences and history.
Research by Ambi Pur has revealed that 75 per cent of Brits value small personal touches in the home over large scale renovations which, while looking chic, can appear lifeless - it is after all about finding a balance.
The top three most important personal touches to home are wall colour, photographs and pictures, and sentimental items.
More than a fifth of people also claim that they view the scent of their home as their own personal touch.
The conservatory is the ideal place to really showcase the essence of you - after all, with views into your garden it is the perfect location to draw inspiration.
Danielle Proud, an interior designer, advises that one of the best ways you can add some personality into your home is to "go for really bright colours".
This can be achieved through "a couple of throws, maybe a cushion, and possibly a feature wall but in something that is a lot brighter than you would normally go for".
Another great way to add personality is through antiques and by refurbishing furniture. Why not take an old chair and reupholster it? Or strip down a tired old piece of wooden furniture?
Small touches such as these are important to make your conservatory a reflection of you.
"When you walk in you want to feel like you are not walking into someone else's show home, but into something that is specific to you, and embraces everything that you're about and everything that makes you feel good," Ms Proud said.
