    Victorian conservatories

    Practical, spacious and blooming with elegance and traditional period aesthetics, the historical and cultural significance of Britain’s most famous era continues today in the enduring popularity of Victorian Conservatories.

    The Victorian era was all about the ornate and it was during this time that the UK’s love of the conservatory blossomed. The British nobility in particular were passionate about their conservatories, building lavish structures that maximised natural light, adorning them with ornate architectural features typical of the time period and filling their spaces with citrus fruits and exotic flora and fauna from abroad. Today, Victorian Conservatories offer modern homeowners the opportunity to expand their living spaces without building a costly extension. Practical yet oozing historical charm, a Victorian Conservatory can heighten your property with elegant aesthetics, natural light and a functional, multi-use space ideal for large social gatherings, intimate dinner parties and even afternoon tea – just like the Victorians.

    At Majestic Designs, we manufacture our range of Victorian Conservatories in the heart of Somerset. From our state-of-the-art factories in Cheddar, our Victorian Conservatories are engineered with energy efficiency and security in mind, combining modern conveniences with the classic aesthetics of a bygone era. Suitable for installation in traditional and contemporary properties alike, our range of Victorian Conservatories are available in an array of different colours with ornate styling and other features typical of the era. Typically constructed with a sharp, angled roof and a decorative crest, a Victorian Conservatory from Majestic Designs is sure to please.

    Timeless Victorian Grandeur

    Ornate Victorian Conservatories

    Victorian Conservatories are one of the most popular period conservatory styles in the UK, providing a beautiful extension to traditional and contemporary homes alike. From modern new builds to character cottages, Victorian Conservatories can provide a functional, naturally light space to live, relax and rest in.

    Victorian architecture refers to several architectural trends made popular during the reign of Queen Victoria in the mid to late 19th century. During this period, there were many interpretations and eclectic revivals of historic trends and influences. In general, the Victorian era is defined by its rich opulence, grandeur and prosperity. This is reflected in the ornate and lavish characteristics of Victorian architecture including classic Victorian Conservatories, which are typically engineered with a tall roof, expansive panes of double-glazed glass and a plethora of decorative features. A beacon of national pride, this opulent architectural style continues today and can still be seen in homes across the UK.

    Victorian Conservatories at Majestic Designs are engineered with A+14 rated double glazed glass, internal beading and innovative thermal break seals so you’ll be able to use your conservatory all year round. One of the key characteristics of a Victorian Conservatory is its intrinsic ability to deliver indoor-outdoor flow to your property. This proximity to your outdoor spaces can create a more tranquil setting for you and your family to enjoy – even during the cooler months. When paired with the right set of doors, Victorian Conservatories can create a seamless transition between your home and garden. This means during the warmer months, a Victorian Conservatory can create the perfect environment for both large social gatherings and smaller more intimate get-togethers. This means you’ll be able to follow in the footsteps of Britain’s 19th-century nobility and throw a tea party in your conservatory surrounded by expansive panes of glass and of course, plenty of plants as was the Victorian way.

    Majestic Designs engineers our range of bespoke Victorian Conservatories in our state-of-the-art factories in Somerset. Every order we receive is made from scratch, so you can rest assured your conservatory will be truly unique to your home. We also offer our range of Victorian Conservatories in different colours and styles.

      The lifestyle benefits of Victorian Conservatories

      Amongst the most important benefits, a Victorian Conservatory adds usable, multi-functional space to your home that can be utilised all year round, regardless of the season. Originally used as greenhouses for Britain’s most wealthy, Victorian Conservatories can create the ideal social setting for tea parties, dinner parties and summer BBQs. They also provide the perfect environment for growing your favourite fruits, vegetables and other plants unable to survive the UK’s harsh weather.

      In the winter months, the expansive double-glazed panes of glass will ensure your home is kept warm and dry, without compromising on natural light or airflow. However, like the style’s close cousins, namely Edwardian and Georgian Conservatories, it’s during the warmer months that a Victorian Conservatory really shines. Depending on what door you’ve paired your Victorian Conservatory with, the installation of such can create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor living spaces. This indoor-outdoor flow increases the value of your home, enhances its ‘kerb appeal’ and creates the ideal setting for summer social gatherings.

      Different styles of Conservatories

      As well as our range of classic Victorian Conservatories, Majestic Designs also offers a number of other conservatory styles. These styles are available in a number of different designs, styles and colours and can be made entirely bespoke to your exact specifications.

      Gable Conservatories

      What is the difference between Edwardian and Victorian Conservatories?

      Although Edwardian and Victorian Conservatories are often confused with one another, the two styles are from two very different architectural eras. The main difference is the overall shape as well as differences in the number of ornate features. An Edwardian Conservatory is square or rectangular with a flat front. Victorian Conservatories on the other hand have a more rounded, multi-faceted front. They are also more intricate in design with more opulent features.

      Victorian Conservatories are most easily recognised by their rounded front as well as a traditional high-pitched roof and lavish decoration typical of the Victorian era. The roof is also often engineered with sharp edges and more opulent detailing. This is typical of the Victorian era. On the other hand, an Edwardian Conservatory is less elaborate. Edwardian Conservatories remain a fantastic option for traditional and contemporary homes alike and can maximise the amount of space available with a typically symmetrical shape.

      What is the history of Victorian Conservatories?

      Historically, Conservatories were constructed separately from the large mansions and townhouses of Britain’s most wealthy and were used for sheltering imported plants such as recently discovered citrus crops such as lemons, limes, and oranges as well as other exotic flora and flora not native to the UK.

      The very first conservatories were built in the 17th century. Built in 1637, The Glass House at the Botanic Gardens of Oxford University is one of the earliest known conservatories still standing in the UK today and was constructed using a combination of stone, slate and glass.
      It was during the Victorian era that Britain’s nobility began constructing large, opulent structures with a plethora of decorative features. Victorian Conservatories were traditionally used to host small social gatherings amongst the homeowner’s many exotic plants, with events ranging from lavish dinners to intimate tea parties and afternoon luncheons.

      One of the most well-known Victorian Conservatories is the Chatsworth House Conservatory in Derbyshire, which was built between 1836 and 1841. Engineered from iron, the construction of the conservatory would result in a steady rise in the popularity of conservatories across the UK. The Crystal Palace, one of the most famous and short-lived conservatories ever constructed, was also built during the Victorian era. It was designed by Sir Joseph Paxton and engineered using more than 900,000 square feet of glass.

      How much will my Victorian Conservatory cost?

      The cost of your Victorian Conservatory, including installation costs, will come down to the exact specifications of your home as well as the additional features and decorations you choose. Every order Majestic Designs receives is made to order, so you can rest assured your Victorian Conservatory will be truly unique to your property.

      Will my Conservatory reduce exterior noise?

      Your Victorian Conservatory will reduce exterior noise. Every conservatory we engineer here at Majestic Designs is manufactured with double-glazed glass, internal beading and cutting-edge waterproof seals. As a result, your Victorian Conservatory will shield your home from both bad weather and any external noise pollution as well as any unwelcome intruders. If you live in a busy area, you can rest assured your conservatory will be a tranquil haven.

      For an extra layer of defence against noise pollution, you might want to consider installing new windows, doors or even acoustic glass.

      Does my Conservatory have to be white?

      Here at Majestic Designs, white is one of the most popular colours – and it’s not difficult to see why! White is classic, timeless, contemporary and aesthetically fits with just about any architectural style or trend, regardless of the age of your home.

      If you’re after something a little different, your Victorian Conservatory doesn’t have to be white. At Majestic Designs, our Victorian Conservatories are made to order and completely bespoke with an array of different colours, designs and styles to choose from.

      Choose French Grey or even Black for a modern, industrial appearance, White Woodgrain for a contemporary aesthetic or Chartwell Green for a pop of colour. At the end of the day, the design and colour of your Victorian Conservatory will depend on both your personal preferences and the distinctive aesthetics of your home.
