Victorian - The
Victorian conservatory is the most popular
style of conservatory. That's because the Victorian conservatory
suits all house styles – be they period property or a new
build. The Victorian conservatory springs most readily to
mind when people think of conservatory styles.
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 PVCu 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
windows for space as well as aesthetics.
The Georgian conservatory style features a flat front and a square
or rectangular symmetrical shape. This makes the Georgian conservatory
a really handy shape for laying out furniture and plants, with
no wasted space. The Georgian 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
were originally built on period homes from the 18th and early 19th
centuries, 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 Georgian conservatory was originally the preserve only
of those with style and the very rich who lived in stately homes.
The Georgian conservatory was highly exclusive, coming as they
did before the boom Victorian time for conservatories.
A gable-end conservatory can add real grandeur to your home. Gable-end
conservatories date back to the Georgian 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
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.
Orangeries offer a slightly different take on traditional conservatories.
And a Highgrove orangery is a great way to add conservatory-style
light and space to your home.
orangery is basically a traditional, atrium-style conservatory,
but with bang-up-to-date technology from Ultraframe. With an orangery,
your adjoining rooms flood with light and there's a feeling of
grandeur that comes from the interior height of the orangery.
Shape - The P-shape conservatory
is a style that's ideal for larger, detached properties, combining
a lean-to conservatory with a Victorian conservatory, which
can be either three-faceted or five-faceted. When you combine
a lean-to with a Georgian-style conservatory, this is called
an L-shaped style.
P-shape conservatory creates a versatile style. This is because
the conservatory extends in different directions. The P-shape conservatory
is, therefore, ideal for using as two separate living areas. Modern
families often use the longer part of the P-shape style as a lounge
or dining area, with the rounded part being used as a children’s
play area. P-shaped conservatories often require larger proportions,
so are better suited for larger detached properties, giving an
Shape - The T-shape conservatory
style works best on larger properties. The T-shape is a combination
conservatory style featuring a central projection. It can be
Victorian, Gable or Georgian in style.
T-shape conservatory is a very versatile style, allowing you to
create two distinct living spaces within the one room. With T-shape
conservatories, the central part projects into the garden, which
exaggerates the sense of bringing the garden into the home. The
central projection on a T-shape conservatory style can also create
a ‘porch effect’. This can highlight your elegant French
To - 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.
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
The Lantern conservatory style was the original conservatory
style when they were known as orangeries. For those with the
right budget, a lantern conservatory style makes a fantastic
statement of grandeur and elegance.
conservatories feature a two-tier conservatory roof on different
levels, creating a 'wedding-cake' effect. The two levels are separated
by a row of windows that is highly stylish and makes this style
ideal for period properties of Victorian and Edwardian vintage,
where relatively plain conservatories might not match the grandeur
of the existing building.
Span - Large or portal conservatories are unique and
impressive structures made possible by Highgrove's technical
expertise. Large conservatories are built using a supporting
skeleton that sits inside the conservatory. This gives the large
conservatory structural support and makes it an ideal venue for
a hotel dining room or as a cover for a swimming pool or gym.
