Our conservatory is unbearably hot in the summer months and it's really pissing me off! It runs the entire width of the back of our house and you have to go through it to get out the back door to the garden.
We have vertical blinds up at the windows that the previous owners of the house left behind but there's absolutely nothing on the roof of the conservatory, which to me seems a bit daft?!
So anyway, to cut a long story short, we are very broke so cannot afford bespoke Hillarys blinds or anything like that but have come up with the idea that we could perhaps get 2 or 3 large (unused!) dust sheets and suspend them across the roof in order to reflect the light/heat from the sun.
Has anyone done this or something similar and it's worked?? Honestly, it's like literally walking into a sauna when you walk into it and what's worse is that we cant shut it off from the rest of the house so the heat from it just pours through the downstairs of the house so much that quite often it's hotter INSIDE than it is outside!!
