Edwardian Conservatories

Edwardian conservatories have a square floor plan and either a hipped back or gable fronted roof. The large, square or rectangular room shape maximises the large floor space, whilst the sloping glass roof of the Edwardian conservatory gives a greater impression of space, and creates a light, relaxed living space, which the whole family can enjoy. The classic roof shape of the Edwardian conservatory makes a fantastic structural statement and will set off both period or modern houses.


The side walls of the Edwardian conservatory can be glazed to the floor for extra space. This gives a greater sense of depth and lets allows the feel of the Edwardian conservatory to blend into the garden. The brickwork walls of the Edwardian conservatory can be specified to either match or contrast existing bricks. For privacy, solid panels can also be used in the Edwardian conservatory wherever you choose.

Victorian Conservatories

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. Victorian conservatory styles comprise the three-facet Victorian, featuring a bay front with three main windows at wide angles, and the five-facet Victorian.


The side walls of the Victorian conservatory can be glazed to the floor for extra space. These extra glass panels allow the ‘garden in’ and give the Victorian conservatory a greater sense of depth and space. An alternative to glass panels in the Victorian conservatory is brickwork walls. These can be matched or contrasted to existing bricks and for privacy, solid panels can also be used in the Victorian conservatory where you choose.

Lean-To Conservatories

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.


Whether 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 house.


Lean-to conservatories can also be called sunrooms or garden rooms, and they bring a flavour of the Mediterranean into your home, trapping the winter sunlight and converting it into heat through the glass. The simple shape of the lean-to conservatory gives you the maximum space in a highly economical style.

P and T Shaped Conservatories


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.

The 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.



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.

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 doors.
