Conservatory styles

Despite being competitively priced, our conservatories are bespoke and we take great care to offer the best addition to your property that your budget and location will allow. In some cases, our agreed design may encompass more than one of the styles that are illustrated here. For your convenience, the following sections illustrate the general terms that are applied to several core designs of conservatory.

Modern: lean-to and reverse

A versatile and increasingly popular choice, suitable for home-owners who seek a clean contemporary look. While these conservatories look great attached to modern homes, they can be especially effective when added to period properties – they provide a dramatic contrast between old and new.
For those situations where there is less room under the eaves, consider a reverse lean-to design with sliding or bi-folding doors. The example pictured is located at our Chilton conservatories show site. Its five-leaf bi-folding aluminium doors open all the way across the veranda: a stylish bridge between outdoors and in. This particular conservatory features raked frames manufactured from Duraflex uPVC and foiled in dark grey (RAL 7016) to match its aluminium Visofold bi-folding doors. We used energy-efficient Pilkington 'K' glass in the doors and frames, with self-cleaning Pilkington 'Activ Blue' glazing forming the large roof panels. These tinted panels not only look good, they help keep internal temperatures cooler on hot days. You can choose from a range of frame colours and specifications, as well as from various hardware options.

Traditional - Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian

Due to its square or rectangular plan, the Georgian conservatory design offers excellent use of its floor space. The Edwardian differs from the Georgian style of conservatory only in that it features a roof that slopes on all sides, making this design suitable for locations where low eaves heights are a constraint.

The Victorian is a popular conservatory style, which is distinguished by its three or five faceted front. A particular favourite with owners of period properties, the Victorian style's elegant proportions and fan-style roof add aesthetic appeal.

Our Chilton showsite example features 600mm brick cavity walls, Duraflex uPVC window frames and open-out French doors on one side-facet.


Some of our most luxurious home extensions and garden rooms are constructed with full-height masonry walls, box gutters and lantern roofs.

This ‘P’ shaped example features uPVC windows and doors that are foiled externally in Chartwell Green. The orangery’s 'Livin Room' roof features an electrically operated vent that can be set to open and close automatically from its thermostatic control module. A moisture sensor ensures that the roof vent closes at the first sign of rain.

Gable-fronted conservatories

A gable-fronted conservatory adds a sense of grandeur to any home. This style makes optimum use of the floor area in a similar way to the Georgian conservatory. The difference here is that the front panel of the roof remains upright, creating a feeling of greater height within the room.

Verandas and bespoke styles

Conservatory styles can be adapted and combined to form, for example, a spectacular T or P shaped building, providing you with a grand living area.

We might incorporate a veranda into a new lean-to conservatory, or we could build you a simple single-glazed veranda. The choices, in terms of design materials and specification, are yours.
