Many buyers favour the Edwardian, which is a flat-fronted style that offers excellent use of floor space due to a square or rectangular internal shape.
Each side of the roof slopes back to the centre and the resulting contemporary style is suited to the majority of properties.
Victorian is a popular, traditional style of conservatory, with a versatility that makes it suitable for many house styles. Its distinguishing architectural feature, a bay front, with either an angled (3 bay) or slightly curved (5 bay) front, combined with a steeply pitched roof and ornate ridge details give this style of conservatory a more classical appearance.
A gable-fronted style of conservatory adds a sense of grandeur to any home. With a high roof slope and the same floor space as a Georgian, a Gable offers excellent use of internal space. The front panel of the roof remains upright rather than sloping back to the centre as on a Georgian, creating a feeling
of great height within the conservatory.
The larger ‘P and T’ shapes are perfect as rooms with a dual purpose, such as a lounge or dining area through to a fun family room. The ideal style for a larger conservatory, a P-shape can combine for example a lean-to and a Victorian, to create a versatile style that can be used as two different living areas. Due to the proportions needed to achieve both the P and T-shapes, the styles are better suited to larger properties, giving a versatile floor space and impressive result to any home.
The lean-to style could be for those who prefer clean understated lines. Traditional or contemporary, this style is ideal for properties with limited space under the eaves or an awkward area in which to fit a conservatory.
The pitch of the roof is variable, so that a shallow pitch could fit under a low bungalow eaves, whilst a steeper pitch would match the roof of a terraced or detached house.
