Conservatories...

Adding a conservatory will transform your home and give you extra space. Melrose Construction can advise on heating and ventilation to ensure you have a room you can enjoy all year round.

Melrose Construction can supply a complete conservatory package from the roof down, including taking care of planning and building regulations, ground work, heating, electrics, even the furnishing.

Each one of our conservatory designs is tailor-made to be the perfect addition to your home, adding both space and value. Choose between a variety of beautiful styles to create the perfect conservatory to suit you and your home.

Whether you are looking for a conservatory that is contemporary or traditional, complex or with clean lines, Melrose Construction conservatory roofing systems can create whatever you have in mind.

Browse through some of the different styles available below and if you have something special in mind that is not represented in this section, then don't be afraid to ask...

The Victorian conservatory is the most popular style of conservatory. That's because the Victorian conservatory suits all house styles, be they period property or a new build. The Victorian conservatory springs most readily to mind when people think of conservatory styles.

The Victorian conservatory style includes a bay front, a steeply pitched roof and ornate ridge details. These days, of course, your Victorian conservatory, made out of modern materials such as PVC-U and aluminium, is built to last.

The Georgian conservatory style features a flat front and a square or rectangular symmetrical shape. This makes the Georgian conservatory a really handy shape for laying out furniture and plants, with no wasted space. The Georgian conservatory typically has a high, sloping roof style that gives a spectacular vaulted effect. Your conservatory floods with light, making it a bright, airy and uplifting room.

The Lean-to conservatory, or Mediterranean conservatory, is the simplest style of conservatory, with clean lines that give it a contemporary look and make the leant-to a popular conservatory for modern houses. The lean-to conservatory style will be ideal for you if you prefer the simple, understated lines of a Mediterranean sunroom.

The P-shape conservatory is a style that's ideal for larger, detached properties, combining a lean-to conservatory with a Victorian conservatory, which can be either three-faceted or five-faceted. When you combine a lean-to with a Georgian-style conservatory, this is called an L-shaped style.

The T-shape conservatory style works best on larger properties. The T-shape is a combination conservatory style featuring a central projection. It can be Victorian, Gable or Georgian in style.

The Lantern conservatory style was the original conservatory style when they were known as orangeries. For those with the right budget, a lantern conservatory style makes a fantastic statement of grandeur and elegance.

Lantern conservatories feature a two-tier conservatory roof on different levels, creating a 'wedding-cake' effect. The two levels are separated by a row of windows that is highly stylish and makes this style ideal for period properties of Victorian and Edwardian vintage, where relatively plain conservatories might not match the grandeur of the existing building.

A Gable-end conservatory can add real grandeur to your home. Gable-end conservatories date back to the Georgian style, of which modern gable-end conservatories are a variant. With a gable-end conservatory, the front of the roof doesn't slope back to the centre. Instead, the front of the conservatory stays upright, like the end of a house. This is where the gable-end conservatory style gets its name from.

Orangeries now represent a growing number of the solutions created for our clients - a more substantial building incorporating flat roof areas with one or more inset lanterns.

During the last few years we have developed the expertise to incorporate reliable flat roof materials into our orangery designs, thus creating rooms with often a more practical everyday use when integrated with the existing accommodation.

An orangery can sometimes be the only solution when the aspect of the proposed site might preclude a more conventional conservatory. Even in our climate too much sunlight can be the curse of the most beautiful glasshouse.
