Double Hipped

The utilisation of a box gutter allows the addition of a Victorian style conservatory to an even wider range of dwellings. A box gutter allows the Conservatory to join the existing wall or to simultaneously drain the existing house roof and the conservatory roof.

This design is particularly suitable to properties that have height restriction that would foul the ridge of a standard Victorian or Edwardian. It is also perfect for bungalows where the roof soffit is at a low height.

Edwardian

Also known as The Georgian this classic conservatory is square or rectangle, with stylish lines. Edwardian conservatories have straight and square profiles without faceted ends. Edwardian conservatories offer a clean and simple look with strong bold lines.

The full square corners on the Edwardian style maximise the interior floor area as opposed to the more rounded corners associated with the Victorian.

Gable End

This authentic, elegant Victorian glasshouse a Gable end conservatory provides a distinctive look where a high pitched roof is incorporated.

The conservatory has a sense of architectural grandeur and offers a light airy design which makes excellent use of available floor space and provides additional head room.

Lantern

The Lantern is the ultimate in conservatory design and can be attached to your property or built as a stand alone outbuilding. The original conservatory style, often refereed to as a Orangery, now brought up to date with modern windows and conservatory roof technology. 

Choosing a Lantern style conservatory ensures drama and style representing the grandeur of times gone by. The 2 tiered effect adds a new dimension to your conservatory and the extra ceiling height adds to the feeling of light and space. Lanterns are typically suited to older style properties and are often chosen for swimming pool enclosures.

Lean To

Often referred to as a sunroom or garden room, lean to conservatories bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your home.

Traditional or contemporary, this style is ideal fro properties with limited space under the eaves or an awkward area in which to fit an conservatory. The pitch of the roof is variable, so a shallow pitch would match the roof of a terraced house

P Shape

Combining a mix of lean-to and Victorian style. A 'P-shape' conservatory is an ideal choice for a larger conservatory. By blending the two styles into one you can create a conservatory big enough to offer two separate living areas - e.g. a dinging room and living room. 

A P-shape is ideal for creating maximum space whilst maintaining a sense of proportion with your house. The Victorian section helps to create the P-shape that gives this style its name and can be built either a 3 or 5 panel design.

T Shape

The T-shape is ideal for larger properties with a long wall on which to build the conservatory. A T shape conservatory allows for maximisation of the space and gives an attractive symmetrical appearance.

A central projection highlights the shape and can create a 'porch' effect to the conservatory if this is where the doors are placed.

Victorian

A essentially English design that incorporates a multi faced bay end for superb all round views. In effect, a Victorian conservatory is much like an Edwardian conservatory but with one end which incorporates angled or covered facets. This is the most popular style of conservatory and has distinguished architectural features such as steeply pitched rood and ornate ridge designs. 

Style variation include:
3 facet Victorian in which the bay front has three main window, widely angled for maximum space. This style is suitable for the majority of locations.

5 Facet Victorian with five main bay front windows, creating a pleasing period profile with a subtle rounded appearance, offering the ideal blend of spaceand classical look.
