What Different Kinds of Conservatories are Available?

A conservatory is a building made with wide glass windows, and as you surely must have already seen, an extension of someone’s home's living area. They are basically designed as a patio area which is enclosed to the elements.

They can also be put to good use as a greenhouse because of the amount of sunlight which enters through the glass. Most conservatories in Willenhall normally serve the same purpose, even though their designs and style can be different.

The various styles available include:

  1. The Lean to
  2. Edwardian
  3. Edwardian Double Hipped
  4. Victorian
  5. P-Shaped
  6. Gable Ended

And in Detail

1 -Lean To conservatories, like their name indicates, are typically built to against the south-facing side of a home. This type of design commonly lets the maximum volume of sunlight to enter, and at the same time safeguards against cold Northern winds. Due to the building of a Lean to style needing one less wall than other designs, it is often thought of as one of the most cost friendly conservatories to build and maintain.

2 -Edwardian variants are typically rectangular or square shaped with high, sloping roofs which allow for householders to maximise their potential floor space. The simple, even corners of the Edwardian conservatory typically allow for great optimal placement of things such as furniture and/or plants. Due to Edwardian conservatories being basic in design, they are usually among the most affordable.

3 -Double Hipped Edwardian conservatories slightly differ from the normal Edwardian style in the building of the roof. This kind of conservatory’s roof slopes down at the rear. This building type is normally liked by folks whose house windows would usually be blocked by the traditional Edwardian roof design.

4 –What is known as “Victorian conservatories” are more than often considered the most elegant and luxurious type of conservatory. Their beautifully curved, glass walls are normally harder to construct than the flat glass walls of other designs, commonly making this one of the most expensive yet popular conservatory designs to own. This grandiose Victorian style also requires a number of different facets to enhance its outstanding appearance.

5 –The P-Shaped structure combines the design of the Lean-to with that of the Victorian. This type of design is commonly known as the “link option”, because it can be utilised to combine a homes’ rear two rooms. The P-Shaped conservatory may be designed as only the one large room or divided into two adjoining rooms.

6 –Finally, what is known as the Gable Endedtype of conservatory is derived from the Edwardian design, conventionally rectangular in shape, with a profound triangular front. The front windows normally extend up to the roof's apex. This type of conservatory certainly gives the impression of bountiful height.

If none of the above style of conservatory happens to suit any homeowner, professional building services are often more than willing to make up a custom design.
