How to prepare a winter garden

The rules for preparing the winter garden

In ancient times and especially in the France of Versailles, the winter gardens were glazed spaces designed to guard the beautiful orange and lemon trees that decorated and adorned the noble green areas in the summer months.
To date, their meaning has been reinterpreted and adapted to the most common needs of modern families to enjoy a green, livable and relaxing oasis all year round. The result is a closed space, adjoining the house and seen as a real extension of the same.
If you don't want to give up even in winter to the green thumb, follow a few but important guidelines that will guide you from the choice of the structures to be set up to that of the furnishings.
The first aspect to consider is the size of the space to be transformed and therefore the relative cost. There are now numerous construction options on the market to choose from: fixed or mobile roofs, low-cost or prefabricated structures. They differ from one another in terms of economic expenditure and the materials used. The final decision will therefore be subjective and linked to your family budget.
No doubt there are, however, important technical parameters to be respected and not underestimated. To create the ideal climate it is necessary to check and ensure that the internal temperature fluctuates between 18 ° and 26 ° C and humidity between 80% and 90%. The plants placed inside it, in fact, need a constant and mild thermal condition. It is important to prefer south, south-west exposure to take advantage of the sun's light and heat, always using insulating materials.

This section can provide new insights and ideas for inventing and preparing a possible arrangement of elements in the protected oasis. One can think, for example, of placing a small sofa and an armchair in neutral colors in the central part of the room, inserting, then scattered in the rest of the area, some poufs, with particular fabrics and fabrics, more or less colored or combinable with the chromatic tones of the plants themselves. It is interesting to combine them with the chosen vegetation or arrange them near the windows to create reading points. The effect will be delicate and original. It may also be interesting to prefer a rare exotic plant or one of great visual impact and associate it with an equally particular piece of furniture, such as an armchair or a chaise longue. The combination will create a sophisticated and captivating corner, enhancing a specific point of the "protected" garden. One last tip? Use your imagination and simplicity!
