This is known as the most popular choice because its design blends in well with most homes. It has a rounded front and can be built with three or five facets. It also has a pitched roof and is an elegant addition to any home.
This has some elements which makes it similar to the Victorian including the pitched roof but while the Victorian is curved, the Edwardian is square or rectangular in shape. This is a better choice than the Victorian for those seeking a conservatory with a little extra space. If you are planning to have a large quantity of furniture in your conservatory, the Edwardian is your best option.
Lean To Conservatory
This was the most popular option once upon a time and is still the least expensive choice. It has a very simplistic design with clean lines and a look that is timeless. It is possible to alter the height to suit different homes as a lean to conservatory would need to be in a different position depending on whether the home was a bungalow or a multi-storey house.
As you are probably aware, bespoke relates to something which is specifically made for you. Some houses cannot accommodate a traditionally designed conservatory so a bespoke option is the least challenging. Whether you want a gargantuan extra room or just a small room built around your front or back yard, the bespoke choice caters for you.
This is similar to the Edwardian conservatory and is the ideal choice for someone with a small garden. With its square glass panels and triangular roof, this is a classy addition to any home.
When designing your conservatory, you will need to take a close look at the material you use for the frame. The most popular choice is UPVC which is relatively inexpensive, durable and easy to clean. Aluminium has thermal breaks which aids heat insulation and is another commonly used material for frames. Wood gives you a natural look but can be harder to maintain than the aforementioned materials.
You can choose glass or polycarbonate (which is much less expensive) for the roof. Glass is far heavier than polycarbonate and may not always be the best construction choice. Polycarbonate conservatories create a softer effect when the sun shines in but it is far noisier during rain.
