There is no one need for all conservatories. One person may choose to install a conservatory that is purely for them to watch television, whereas someone else will envision a conservatory filled with children’s toys to keep them out of the living area. It’s not just function, either, because there are different materials and combinations of those materials that can be put together to suit exactly what you need. It’s all about what you want to achieve with the look and function of your home, and below, you’ll find out a little about each style available to you.
This is one of the most popular conservatory styles, with a bay front, pitched roof and an ornate roof ridge. It has soft lines created by faceted corners, and this design can be a very graceful addition to any home.
This is very similar to the Victorian classic style of conservatory, though these have a flat front and a rectangular shape to them. It’s the style you choose if you want to maximise space, because the floor shape offers the most for your money. The hipped roof maintains that elegance that you want to achieve in the first place.
This style is often referred to as a ‘lean-to’, and can be used when the back wall height of a house is an issue. It can also be chosen because what you want is a simple addition to the home, and you want it to be attractive.
With the right designer, you could create a conservatory that is a combination of more than one style. Perhaps you want the ornate roof of a Victorian conservatory along with the space of the Edwardian. Creating a bespoke conservatory can often be the answer to your design worries.
A balanced mix of the lean-to and Victorian or Edwardian styles, this then creates a ‘P’ shaped conservatory which are fairly large and are a great solution to a larger living space.
A gable conservatory is characterised by the way that the roof looks. The roof itself doesn’t slope back toward the centre, but maintains height by staying upright.
