There are a number of different design and style possibilities, whilst taking into consideration such critical factors as design planning and budget.
There are five popular designs. Each model has many features and benefits that set us apart from other products in the market.
Pavilion – gable front
It is essential that the conservatory complements the scale, the materials and the architectural design of the house. The handsome rectangular shape of the pavilion conservatory offers an easy design solution for any house. The front panel of the roof remains upright rather than sloping back to create a feeling of greater height within the conservatory.
Edwardian – hipped front
More often than not a conservatory can provide the ideal solution in situations where a conventional extension simply would not work. On the right dwelling the flat fronted Edwardian offers excellent floor space due to its rectangular internal space.
This classic style of house extension has long been a popular design. It works well on dwellings where there is little room under the eaves as the pitch can be varied to suit the majority of properties.
The Victorian conservatory has been designed with front angled facets to benefit from every ray of direct sunlight throughout the day.
The P shape conservatory or bell & wing is a mixture of the other designs such as a Pavilion, Edwardian or Victorian linked together at either side with a lean to. Due to the proportions, this design may be better suited to larger dwellings.
If none of the standard shapes are suitable you may prefer to design your own unique conservatory design with our guidance.
