Whether it's by converting a loft or cellar or adding an extension, many of us are searching for ways to extend or make the most out of the space in our homes. One way of expanding your house is to add a conservatory to your home.

For each homeowner, conservatory designs are unique. With your choice of materials, the style and design of the conservatory including the glass is vast and can be fully bespoke to you. Whether you are looking for a classic white uPVC conservatory, a heritage wood effect conservatory or a modern gray glazed extension, your conservatory will be completely unique to you.  To help you start off from there are a range of designs as a base for your conservatory to begin from.

Victorian conservatory

A Victorian style conservatory has a ridged roof and an elegant rounded effect created by a multi-faceted end wall. Victorian conservatories are the most famous conservatory style and are characterized by their pitched roof,  three or five facets and curved appearance, allowing maximum space. With its soothing and elegant feel, this style is classic and efficient, suiting Victorian properties.

Edwardian conservatory

Edwardian conservatories have a rectangular layout, similar to Victorian conservatories, that maximizes internal space and is perfect if you want a classic conservatory style with a timeless look. An advantage with E.dwardian conservatory is that it provides more space if compared to Victorian conservatory. Edwardian conservatory can be the perfect space in your home to relax and enjoy a bright open space.


Orangeries have a rectangular ground plan to optimize internal space, which is similar to Edwardian or Victorian conservatories. It has a traditional charm that springs from its conception when they were used by the nobility in their stately homes to cultivate exotic fruits. Usually, they have strong brick pillars and wide glazed windows which provide a large, open, bright space. To summarize orangeries provide a more traditional style including all the advantages of a modern conservatory.

Loggia conservatory

A loggia is an ideal addition to any home. This conservatory is an adaptation from italian loggias by british innovation. A italian loggias is a roofed balcony or recessed space open to air on one side and backed by ornate columns. Loggia conservatory takes inspiration from this and synchronizes perfectly with british architecture which allows this style to be suitable with new and traditional homes alike.

Lean-to conservatory

The simplest style is the lean-to conservatory, also referred to as the Mediterranean or sun-room.  A lean to conservatory is rectangular and has a single-sloped roof with the longer wall connected to the house. As for fitting in corner areas, it is the perfect design. Because of the fact that this conservatory adjoined the main property it  becomes like an extension of your home. This conservatory is simple and perfect for a broad range of house types, quick and easy conservatory installation as well as being functional and a less costly solution.

Garden room:

This type of conservatory is rectangular in structure with a roof that leans on the main property, the material for the lower part of your conservatory may be selected making it suitable for a wide range of houses.
