WindowPlan Conservatories Styles
At WindowPlan we will help you in choose which conservatory
style is right for you and your property. We will guide you
through the many design options available, including the typical
styles described below.
An essentially English design that incorporates a multi-faceted
bay end for superb all-round views. In effect, a Victorian
conservatory is much like Edwardian conservatory but with
one end which incorporates angled or curved facets. This is
the most popular style of conservatory and has distinguishing
architectural features such as a steeply pitched roof and
ornate ridge details. Style variations include:
• the 3-facet Victorian in which the bay front has three
main windows, widely angled for maximum space. This style
is suitable for the majority of locations.
• the 5-facet Victorian with five main bay-front windows,
creating a pleasing period profile with a subtle rounded appearance,
offering the ideal blend of space and classical looks.
Also known as The Georgian, this classic conservatory is
square or rectangular, with stylish lines. Edwardian conservatories
have straight and square profiles without faceted ends. Edwardian
conservatories offer a clean and simple look with strong bold
lines. The full square corners on the Edwardian style maximise
the interior floor area as opposed to the more rounded corners
associated with a Victorian.
Lantern Shape Conservatory (Orangery)
The original conservatory style, often referred to as an
Orangery, now brought up-to-date with modern window and conservatory
Choosing a lantern style conservatory ensures drama and style
representing the grandeur of times gone by. The 2-tiered effect
adds a new dimension to your conservatory and the extra ceiling
height adds to the feeling of light and space. Lanterns are
typically suited to older style properties and are often chosen
for swimming pool enclosures.
Double Hipped Edwardian Conservatory
The utilisation of a boxgutter allows the addition of a
Victorian style conservatory to an even wider range of dwellings.
A boxgutter allows the Conservatory to abut the existing house
wall or to simultaneously drain the existing house roof and
the conservatory roof.
This design is particularly suitable to properties that have
height restrictions that would foul the ridge of a standard
Victorian or Edwardian. It is also perfect for bungalows where
the roof soffit is at a low height.
Combining a mix of lean-to and Victorian styles, a 'P-shape'
conservatory is the ideal choice for a larger conservatory.
By blending two styles into one you can create a conservatory
big enough to offer two separate living areas - e.g. a dining
room and living room.
A P-shape is ideal for creating maximum space whilst maintaining
a sense of proportion with your house. The Victorian section
helps to create the P-shape that gives this style its name
and can be built as either a 3 or 5 panel design.
The T-shape is ideal for larger properties with a long wall
on which to build the conservatory.
A T-shape conservatory allows for maximisation of space and
gives an attractive symmetrical appearance. A central projection
highlights the shape and can create a 'porch' effect to the
conservatory if this is where the doors are placed.
Gable End Conservatory
The authentic, elegant Victorian glasshouse. A gable end
conservatory has a sense of architectural grandeur and offers
a light and airy design which makes excellent use of available
floor space and provides additional head room.
Lean To Conservatory
Often referred to as a sunroom or garden room, lean-to conservatories
bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your home. 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 roof, whilst
a steeper pitch would match the roof of a terraced house.
