What Styles Of Conservatories Are Available?Conservatories
When it comes to investing in a new conservatory, many people only know of one main style, and this tends to differ between different areas. For example, there are areas where there is an abundance of white UPVc in a Georgian style. So what styles of Conservatory are available for your home?
A common style of conservatory, particularly for conservatories built in the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s is the Georgian style, which is also known as the Edwardian Style. This style is typically square or rectangular in shape and is very symmetrical. A key feature is usually the high pitched sloping roof. A key feature that draws in the sun.
The gable style is very similar to the Georgian style in terms of design with the shape also being square or rectangular and symmetrical. However, the roof is the biggest difference. While boasting a similar high profile and sloping on two sides, the end of the roof is a gable end, which falls straight vertically down from the peak to the side of the conservatory.
A favourite to many of our customers is the Victorian style conservatory. The defining feature of this style is the bay shaped end. Rather than the typical box shape, the furthest end typically features three angled sides to create the bay shape.
The lean-to style of conservatory is great when you are short on space in your garden, but still want a lovely place to enjoy the view. This style is typically a long thin space that runs along the line of your property, and not very far out into the garden. This style of conservatory can also be adapted or “wrapped around” your house if your garden spans two sides.
Shaped conservatories are a favourite for many of our team. Similar to the Georgian style they feature high pitched and sloping roofs on all sides, but the base shape is custom to your property. You can opt for the typical P shape which features a larger area either against your house, or to the far side of your conservatory, or for larger gardens, why not a T shape? Shaped conservatories open up the opportunity to use your conservatory for many different uses!
