As well as being versatile in use, conservatories offer many different choices of design with a whole range of shapes, styles and materials. However while the design possibilities may seem infinite, nearly all are based on a few fundamental styles.
A Victorian style conservatory has a ridged roof and a multi-faceted end wall creating an elegant rounded effect
Edwardian conservatories have a ridged roof combined with a rectangular base, giving the classical feel of the Victorian design, but with greater available space.
The Edwardian gable conservatory is designed so that the ridged roof meets a gabled end, resulting in very clean lines that suit many modern homes
A lean-to conservatory, sometimes known as Mediterranean or sun-room is the simplest design. The conservatory is a single-sloped roof with the longer wall adjoined to the house. It is also a useful style for fitting into a corner area.
P-shaped, L-shaped, T-shaped or U-shaped conservatories combine any of the above and the choices take on a massive scope. The options allow for a conservatory to be attached to almost any home.
You can choose the material for the lower part of your conservatory. You can take the glass panels right to ground level or build a low wall, usually of material that match the house. This will be highly insulated optimising comfort levels
