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
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
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
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
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
