Conservatories - Which Type is Right for Me?


With so much variety in design and build it can be hard to know which type of conservatory is right for you, follow this guide and we can help you determine which to choose. If you have any other queries, don't hesitate to contact us today.



Considerations


Will it be mainly a garden room for growing plants or more for pets? A basic kind of conservatory that can be accessed using an existing door from your home will be a good place to access this considerably.


Is it for use on warm and sunny days? If this is the case, then you can probably get away with a fairly simply constructed conservatory, you will however need to think about the impact that its temperature can have on the rest of your home and how cold it will be in the wintertime.


Is it to extend your living space year-round? You will have to think carefully about the size, style and construction if this is the case. This also goes for integrating it into your home by knocking a wall down to make it an open-plan space or having double glass doors fitted too.


Is it a wow factor that you are after orangeries can be quite impressive, especially if they have a lantern-shaped roof - they are however priced so be sure as to what the style you want is.


A conservatory designer and builder should be able to guide you through this process and help you come to the best outcome for you.


Lean-to


This is a simple conservatory design that is simply attached to an existing home exit, with an opening to access from the rear of a home. It is a popular design that offers a simple roof and a great deal of design flexibility. There are clean lines that complement every property style to make it the perfect choice for a modern garden room.


Victorian Conservatory


These are classic-looking conservatories with a pavilion-like aesthetic. It is one of the period types of conservatory. It is perhaps the most popular style of conservatory and it suits all styles of house and home whether it be a period property or a new build. The style includes a bay front window, a steeply pitched roof and original ridge details. In your conservatory, these days will be made from materials like uPVC and aluminium - so that it’s built to last.


Edwardian and Georgian Conservatory


This is another classic style which has more subdued lines on it and has a focus on lightness and openness. It also has elegant design features characteristic of the Edwardian era. This is a great idea to maximize floor space!


Gable Conservatory


A handsome and simple conservatory that features parallel walls and a gable front which maximizes height, along with light and space.


P-Shape Conservatory


This is a style that is great for larger detached properties that combine the lean style and the victorian style. It’s a flexible way to add a significant amount of space and light to the home.


T-Shape Conservatory


A very versatile style that works well on large properties, the T shape features an impressive central projection that can be Victorian, Edwardian or Georgian in style.


Orangery


This is a brick structure which has a brick base and large windows and a flat roof, featuring a glass lantern. It’s a handsome structure that looks a lot like an extension as opposed to a conservatory.


Tiled Roof Conservatory


This is a glass room which has a slated or tiled roof, to make it look more like an extension or part of the house, it’s usually a better insulator than a glass roof too. Think solid roof conservatory. You can even get an existing conservatory upgraded with a solid roof.
