There are many styles to choose from and the choice you make will depend on your personal taste, the size and position of your home as well as what you intend to use your conservatory for. The choice is vast and can be fully bespoke to you with your choice of materials – meaning your conservatory is fully unique to you but there are a variety of designs you can base your design off and begin from. Here we talk through the different types of conservatories available: Victorian Victorian conservatories are the most popular style of conservatory and are distinguished by their pitched roof, its three or five facets and curved appearance – providing maximum space. This style is classic and effective, suiting Victorian properties and beyond with its comforting and elegant feel. Edwardian Similar to Victorian conservatories, an Edwardian conservatory has a rectangular floor plan that maximises internal space and is ideal if you want a classic style of conservatory with a timeless appearance. With its four sided pitched roof and bright open space – it provides the perfect space to relax and enjoy a bright open space. Orangeries Similar to Edwardian or Victorian conservatories, orangeries have a rectangular floor plan to maximise internal space. It has a traditional elegance that sparks from its conception when they were used amongst the aristocracy to grow exotic fruits at their stately homes. They typically have solid brick pillars and large glazed windows creating a great open bright space. Gable Recognisable by its rectangular floor plan and triangular front, Gable conservatories have front windows that extend to meet the roof which helps to maximise the feeling of light and space, creating a great stylish space. Loggia Inspired by the Italian renaissance period and combined with British innovation, a Loggia is the ideal addition to any home. Inspired by Italian Loggias – a roofed gallery or recessed room open to air on one side and supported by ornate columns, the Loggia conservatory takes inspiration from this and adapts it to sync perfectly with British architecture allowing this design to suit old and new properties alike – redefining the conservatory. Lean-to Lean to conservatories are rectangular with a roof that leans onto the main property and is truly becomes like an extension of your home. Uncomplicated and suitable for a wide range of house styles, it is quick and easy to install as well as being a practical and less expensive solution.
