Typical types of conservatories
- Lantern Roof
Conservatories have come a long way since their origins as a Victorian plant house, and although they are defined as a glazed structure separated from the main property by a door, today’s interpretation often sees classic and contemporary designs remaining open to the house in order to become an integral part of the overall space.
The range of all-glazed conservatory designs has never been greater, but these now sit alongside the latest hybrids that take inspirations from the glazed roof orangery. Featuring an element of solid timber or brick walling for added versatility.
Victorian-style designs are a popular choice, as their diversity and dimensions suit most homes. To add a modern twist, look to either angular or curved lines with slim line timber or metal framing, or consider the latest frameless glass boxes. Using folding sliding doors will also instantly open up any space.
Whatever conservatory you choose, the key to success is a design that complements your home. Using materials and scale sensitively should give a convincing finish. Planners are increasingly receptive to contemporary additions, especially for listed buildings, where a clear separation of old and new highlights the history and evolution of the building.
