Which Conservatory Styles Will Best Suit Your Home?
There is little doubt that conservatories are an enduring feature in both contemporary and traditional homes alike. Conservatories are a versatile and practical addition to any property, offering additional room for storage, entertaining or relaxing.
With so many different styles to consider, it can be challenging to find the ideal conservatory for your home. Our guide can assist you in understanding the different types of conservatory styles available, so you’ll be able to find the perfect design to match the aesthetics of your property as well as your own personal taste.
So what is a conservatory? And what conservatory styles are there to choose from?
What is a conservatory?
In essence, a conservatory is an additional living space with a single wall connecting it to the rest of the house. Conservatories, which are often referred to as sunrooms, are built to provide an additional living space within a property, as well as bring a homeowner closer to their outdoor areas. This sense of intimacy can foster a feeling of closeness with a garden or patio which can have a positive effect on the mental well-being of both you and your family.
Modern conservatories are commonly used to provide additional living spaces. As a result, they are often fully furnished like the rest of a house with furniture, curtains, and drapes. Conservatories also naturally maximise natural light and can produce a serene, peaceful atmosphere resulting from expansive panes of glass with minimal hardware.
So what conservatory style is right for your home?
Lean-To Conservatories have a similar design to a typical lean-to sunroom and can be built with dwarf walls or floor-to-ceiling double-glazed glass panels for panoramic views of your patio or garden. They are ideal for homes with height limits, such as bungalows or quaint country cottages, because they are designed and constructed with a single slanted roof – hence the name, lean-to.
As a result of a simple, straightforward design Lean-To Conservatories are suitable for both traditional and modern homes alike. A lean-to conservatory is a great option if you’re looking to give your home more additional space and light. Lean-To Conservatories have an expansive footprint which increases the amount of usable space in your home while also opening it up to the outside with large panes of uninterrupted glass and unrivalled indoor-outdoor flow.
Edwardian Conservatories feature a square or rectangular base, a pitched glass roof, and large panes of double-glazed glass, offering residents a combination of natural light with the timeless beauty of Edwardian architecture.
Boasting subtle simplicity and timeless style, Edwardian Conservatories are an excellent choice of conservatory for homeowners looking for a straightforward, classic design. Suitable in both traditional and contemporary properties alike, Edwardian Conservatories are particularly ideal if you’re looking to increase natural light in your period home while still retaining the traditional aesthetics that make it unique.
If you’re looking for an authentic, traditional conservatory style for your heritage property, or simply want to elevate the aesthetics of your modern home, a Victorian Conservatory may be the solution. Victorian Conservatories are suitable in both classic and contemporary homes alike, featuring a distinctly elaborate style with a tall inclined roof. With heightened energy efficiency and security, Victorian Conservatories combine the grandeur of the Victorian era with modern convenience.
Victorian Conservatories are one of the oldest styles of conservatory and are particularly suited to traditional buildings, giving a touch of heritage charm to your home thanks to their elaborate styling, a sharply sloped roof, and authentic hardware and design.

Why are conservatories still popular?
There are many benefits to consider when pondering the enduring popularity of conservatories. Conservatories allow a homeowner to gain additional space and introduce indoor-outdoor flow to their property without having to build a full extension. The installation of a conservatory also allows year-round enjoyment of a garden regardless of the season.
So, what are the other benefits of conservatories?
A conservatory is a more affordable option than building an extension or moving house if you’re in need of more room. Secure, versatile, and wonderfully practical, modern conservatories can be used for almost anything from an additional living space to storage.
Another advantage of installing a conservatory is the visually appealing aesthetics. A conservatory can easily add spectacular, opulent style to your home regardless of the existing style or age of your property.
With a variety of different styles, patterns, and colours to choose from, you can be sure that your conservatory will fit aesthetically with the rest of your home. By adding another room, you’re also increasing the value of your home for any potential future buyers.
