Conservatories are a great addition to any home, providing a seamless connection between your home and garden. However, there are many different styles of conservatory out there. For this reason, deciding on your conservatories shape and design can be overwhelming. The style you land on can be impacted by many things. From the size and shape of your garden, or style of your house, to how you plan to use your conservatory. In this blog, we’ll explore the various styles of conservatories, helping you to understand the options available to you and find the perfect fit for your home. 


Victorian conservatories are what you might think of when you picture a classic, traditional conservatory. They’re characterised by their apex roofline and ornate gothic style. Most commonly, Victorian conservatories have a rounded front, unlike other conservatory styles that are flat fronted. A bay window effect is created from this faceted front, allowing for maximum views of the garden, creating a spacious room. Due to its ornate detailing and style, a Victorian conservatory is perfect for a traditional style house. They also require a property with enough roofline height, meaning they many not be best suited to a bungalow or modern new build house.

Edwardian conservatories are known for their simplicity, symmetry, and spaciousness. Their styling sits between an orangery and a Victorian style conservatory. Edwardian conservatories are either rectangular or square in shape, which allows you to make the most of the enhanced living space. They are less ordinate than Victorian conservatories, so may be suitable for those who prefer the subtle style, reminiscent of the Edwardian era. 


Lean-to conservatories are characterised by their minimalist design, being elegantly simple with clean lines. Although they are simple in design, they can make a dramatic statement by adding a contemporary glass structure to a home. The style of the lean-to conservatory is best noted by the roof shape that slopes away from the house. They’re highly versatile and can be styled with a variety of options to make them unique. For example, the hieght and length of the roof can add varying degrees of style and character. This style of conservatory is well-suited to properties with low rooflines or a small outdoor space. This makes them ideal for bungalows, for example. 


P-shaped conservatories combine the features of Victorian and Lean-to styles, creating a versatile space, suitable for different purposes. P-shaped conservatories are devised of a rectangle with a bay at one end, making the shape of a P. This shape is ideal for using as two separate living areas, such as a lounge and dining area, for example. P-shaped conservatories are suited to larger properties with spacious gardens, and homeowners looking to maximise space and usability. They are especially great as they can add much needed space to the house without swallowing up too much of the garden.
