The Different Types of Conservatories

Conservatories are great for adding some extra room to your house. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, each of which is offered at different prices.

The right conservatory type for you depends on several factors including the amount of space you have or one, what you plan on using the conservatory for and – of course – your own personal preferences. Here is an explanation of some of the most popular types of conservatory to help you make the right choice.

Lean-To Conservatory

The lean-to conservatory gets its name from how it appears to be leaning against a house. They are some of the cheapest options on the market when it comes to conservatories in Birmingham. With a simple rectangular shape and a sloping roof, they are ideal for homes that have relatively small gardens. They are also a perfect fit for single-storey properties like bungalows.

Victorian Conservatory

Most people consider Victorian conservatories to be the pinnacle of conservatory design. A Victorian conservatory stands out from the property with its large windows and is completed with a rounded wall to the end. They look attractive and they make full use of every inch of available space. This is the most popular choice across the UK because not only do they look good, but they are also extremely versatile. A Victorian conservatory is a good fit for just about any kind of property.

Edwardian Conservatory

Edwardian conservatories – also called Georgian conservatories – are similar to Victorian ones. The difference is that they are square or rectangular in shape and they have a pitched roof on each side. The classic design of the Edwardian conservatory means that they offer lots of space and are great for play rooms, dining areas, and storage space.

P-Shaped Conservatory

As the name suggests, P-shaped conservatories are shaped like the letter P. They generally combine the most common elements of Victorian and Edwardian conservatories. They naturally have a lot more space and they are more versatile because of this. A P-shaped conservatory has enough room for the conservatory to be divided up between two different functions. For example, you could convert one half of the conservatory into a dining area, and the other into a play area.

Orangery Extension

On orangery, also sometimes called a sunroom, isn’t technically a conservatory and more than likely require planning permission. The main difference between them is that orangeries are made from brick, stone, or hardwood, while a conservatory is made with glass walls. Orangeries still have large windows though, and they may have a sunroof. They are just as sturdy as any other part of your house and are great for letting more light into your home while providing plenty of extra space.

Gable Conservatory

Gable conservatories are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your property, they are very similar to Edwardian conservatories but commonly differ in size. The large triangular structure on the “gable end” is a fantastic look and blends in well with most properties.

T-shape Conservatory

Better suited for larger properties and big gardens, T-shape conservatories usually come in Victorian and Edwardian styles, the central projections spans along the full length of your property. The T section of the conservatory adjoins to the property.

Lantern Roof Conservatory

The latern roof conservatory is almost like a skylight, these conservatories have a more solid structure similar to an orangery. They consist of two-tier roofs, (roofs at different heights) this creates a layered effect. This particular type of conservatory works very well with vintage styles.

Tiled Roof Conservatory

Different to the rest, a tiled roof conservatory is almost the same as an extension in many ways. A tiled roof conservatory can match the existing character of your property a lot better than other conservatories if you can colour match the tiles on your roof.
