Victorian Design Conservatory

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 UPVC and aluminium, is built to last.

Victorian conservatory styles comprise the three-facet Victorian, featuring a bay front with three main windows at wide angles, and the five-facet Victorian. This conservatory style also has a bay front but with five main windows for space as well as aesthetics.

The Classic roof system gives your Victorian conservatory a distinguished and classical appearance. Your Victorian conservatory can also be configured in any design. It was the Victorian era in which the nation’s love of the conservatory blossomed. This was because of the Victorians’ love of foliage and exotic plants, which required a method of keeping plants alive during the cold winter months. In the 19th century, Victorian conservatory styles were created with ever-more-elaborate details to complement the period homes of the time. Victorian conservatory styles often included a Gothic shape to the windows and doors and complicated shapes in the roof, which was often steeply pitched, just like the roofs of Victorian houses.

A Victorian conservatory should blend with the property and not look like an afterthought. However old your property, though, your Victorian conservatory will have modern double-glazing, electric ventilation and underfloor heating.

Ideally, your Victorian conservatory’s painted exterior will match the exterior of your property. Victorian conservatory styles often featured thin frames and glass. For manufacturers of modern Victorian conservatories, the trick is to replicate this style and still meet Building Regulations.

So, whether you want three or five facets, white or oak, your Victorian conservatory will look classic and elegant as well as being highly versatile and pleasing to the eye.


Edwardian conservatory style, similar to the Georgian style of conservatory, is characterised by lightness and airiness, with more subdued lines than the ornate Victorian style.Edwardian Design Conservatory

The Edwardian conservatory style features a flat front and a square or rectangular symmetrical shape. This makes the Edwardian conservatory a really handy shape for laying out furniture and plants, with no wasted space.  The Edwardian 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.

Edwardian conservatories were originally built on period homes from the early 20th century, and the style has been replicated on many neo-Georgian homes ever since.  Own one and you’ve every right to feel posh, because the Edwardian conservatory was originally the preserve only of those with style and the very rich who lived in stately homes.

Edwardian conservatory style also pulls features from Greek and Roman architecture, as the Georgian period threw up many Greek and Roman ruins, the style of which the architects of the time were quick to copy.

The Edwardian conservatory style has grown in popularity recently.  Obviously, you can add your Edwardian conservatory onto any style of building, but the very grand style works best with existing Edwardian architecture, typified by red-brick houses with white woodwork and white-stone cornices.


The original Victorian glasshouse, this light and airy design brings a great feeling of space and grandeur.Gable End Design Conservatory

A gable-end conservatory can add real grandeur to your home.  Gable-end conservatories date back to the Edwardian 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.

A gable-end conservatory is square or rectangular in style, like a Georgian conservatory.  This gives you maximum space to plan the interior of your gable-end conservatory.  The gable front of the conservatory adds style and also maximises light coming into the room, while the height of the conservatory gives the room a feeling of space.  The gable roof provides a grand and stunning impact both inside and out, and the front of the gable-end conservatory looks like the rising of the sun.  This is often called a sunburst effect.

Your gable-end conservatory can be glazed with glass or polycarbonate, which can be upgraded to higher thicknesses.  Our gable-end conservatory styles are always designed to meet your exacting needs and you can include other elements of our range in the design.  These include roof glazing and various decorative and practical finishes.

A popular gable-end conservatory style option is extra brickwork – perhaps a three-quarter or full-height wall on one side to tie the conservatory in even more with the property.  Whatever you choose, gable-end conservatories are a grand and majestic option for modern or period houses of any size and never fail to impress your friends.

Lean to

Lean to Design Conservatory

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

Whether your Lean-to conservatory is traditional or contemporary, the style is perfect for properties that have restricted space under the eaves, like a bungalow, or have an area that’s too awkward to accommodate a conservatory.  This is because the pitch of the roof on lean-to conservatories can vary – so a shallow pitch can fit under a low bungalow roof and a steeper one would be ideal for a terraced house.

Lean-to conservatories can also be called sunrooms or garden rooms, and they bring a flavour of the Mediterranean into your home, trapping the winter sunlight and converting it into heat through the glass.  The simple shape of the lean-to conservatory gives you the maximum space in a highly economical style.

These types of conservatories have their origins in greenhouses that were built to face the southern sun. This attracted the sun and offered shelter against cold north winds.  These days, a Mediterranean conservatory style is number one on the list of people wanting to improve their homes.

Lean-to conservatories have a simple design and, with at least one wall already built, they save time and labour, which saves money. A Mediterranean conservatory style is not an expensive option, because of its simplicity, and with heating, electricity and water readily available from the house, installation and maintenance costs are lower.

A Lean-to conservatory can also improve the energy balance of your house, provide shelter and catch the winter sun.  You can use your conservatory as a greenhouse, a playroom, a dining room, lounge or kitchen.  And now, with great features like floor heating and double-glazing available for your Mediterranean conservatory, you can have a new living area room for a fraction of the usual price.
