Conservatories are a welcome addition to any home, providing a light and warm summer room which is perfect for entertaining or just using to relax and enjoy the garden from comfortable surroundings. However everyone has a different idea of what their conservatory should look like and what would suit their building type so we’ve attempted to explain a little about each type of conservatory to help you better visualise your dream conservatory.

The first thing you need to consider is what material you want for the framework of your conservatory. These days you have a choice of UPVC, wooden and aluminium. All have different styles and benefits so do take the time to discover the right material for your conservatory.


Example of a Lean to Conservatory

A Lean-To very commonly has external walls for extra support and is a much lower conservatory, making it an ideal choice for bungalows. A Lean-To is the kind of conservatory you most often find in Mediterranean countries who use them as greenhouses as well as Sunrooms in the summer, so you could have you own little patch of Mediterranean paradise!

The Mediterranean conservatory is often the cheapest conservatory style on the market and can easily be adapted to cover large or small spaces.

Edwardian Conservatory

Example of an Edwardian Conservatory

The Edwardian Conservatory is just like an extra room attached onto your home, giving you much more space and value. Use it as a playroom, dining room, Sunroom or chill-out zone as its flexible design means that you can use this extra room in the house for any purpose.

Flexibility also comes on the outside as the Edwardian Conservatory can be adapted to fit bungalows, townhouses or detached homes.

P- Shape Conservatory

Example of a P Shape Conservatory

This conservatory gives you the best of both worlds as it combines the Victorian elegance with the practicality of a Lean-To. The variation of the style means that you could have your Sunlounge at either end of the conservatory with the narrower section providing a practical space which could be used for dining purposes, storage, growing plants or extra seating. This solution is great for adding that extra space to a smaller home.

Georgian Conservatory

If you want elegance or grandeur then a Georgian Conservatory is the ideal choice for you. Its rounded shape makes it a great statement build and it can be adapted to look like a natural and original home extension.

Victorian Conservatory

Example of a Victorian Conservatory

Probably the most common and timeless of conservatories, because of it’s versatility in shape and style. This means that the Victorian Conservatory can be adapted to suit almost every type of property.

Choose from the 3 Facet style with large fronted windows or the 5 Facet Victorian Conservatory which makes the most of larger spaces and gives you an extra living space in your home. Alternatively a T Shape Victorian provides a direct route from your home to the garden with living spaces either side, thus creating a porch effect with dramatic results.

Conservatories are a great way of bringing the outdoors indoors and adding space, potential value and style to your property.
