Enjoy your garden all year round
A lean-to Conservatory is an ideal design if you desire to keep the aesthetics of your new space sharp, simple and consistent with the image of the rest of your property. Aptly named due to the fact they lean directly onto the property they are connecting to, lean-to designs are best suited to residences with height limitations, such as Bungalows. The rectangular shape of conservatories such as these with the sloping roof means that they are also an excellent way for household’s which have very little garden space and low ceilings to have extension work done, and often come at a lower cost than other designs.
Due to their elegance and aesthetic appeal, Victorian conservatories are the most frequently requested style that we have on offer at present, and are universally suited to all types of properties. Installed with all the quintessential features of the periodic style, such as a multi-faceted front, this design should most definitely be considered if you are seeking to add a final touch of class to your home. We currently offer three facet, five facet and T shape designs, all of which add a considerable amount of new living space to your home.
Edwardian conservatories are styled very similarly to the three-facet Victorian design. The big difference between an Edwardian and Victorian design is the shape of the roof, with the Edwardian style coming with a pitched roof either side of the structure in either a rectangular or square design. Conservatories such as these come with a great deal of floor space which is due to the internal shape, and as such make them excellent for hosting dinners and other functions.
This is a very versatile design that can be constructed in almost all kinds of property, ranging from bungalows to detached homes. Unlike other conservatory designs, a gable front style involves the front of the room staying upright, rather than sloping to the centre. Gable front conservatories can add a huge amount of living space to your home, and also provide a great deal of light and ceiling space for you to enjoy.
As it sounds, a P shape conservatory is constructed in the shape of the letter and samples elements of both the lean-to and Victorian designs. In particular, it is a well suited style to people who are seeking to have a larger and more spacious conservatory, and are a very cost effective way of adding a huge degree of new living space to your property. Due to the shape of designs such as these, the new space can be divided into two different rooms, such as a dining room and a games room.
Orangery’s are commonly known as sunrooms, and differ from conventional conservatories as their walls are typically made from bricks, stone or hardwood, rather than glass like more quintessential home extensions. They also have much bigger windows than their glass counterparts and have a sunroof constructed in the centre to give the room and bright and appealing feel. Orangery’s are an excellent way of adding living space to your home, and can also serve to lighten up other areas of your house through the inclusion of the sunroof.

Do you need planning permission to have a conservatory constructed?
Usually, planning permission is not needed for a conservatory to be constructed unless the work is being done in a listed property or a conservation area.
Nevertheless it is still worth looking at your local council’s online webpage so that you can be given a more detailed idea into the permission requirements in your local area. Further information surrounding conservatories can be located on the Planning Portal website.
Building regulations are usually only relevant to conservatories which have more than 30m² of floor space, have no existing doors that are attached to the main home, or are connected from the kitchen. However, it is again worth checking out your local council’s webpage and looking at their extension guide area in order to get a clearer idea of what you will need to adhere to.
How long will it take for the work to be completed?
The length of time that a conservatory takes to construct and finish ranges depending on the style you choose and the purpose you wish to use it for. Typically, work can be finished within a week of starting, though for more complex designs and full interior work, this may extend into a second week.
We will also have to place blinds in the conservatory in order to lower glare and heat accumulation. Blinds also have the added benefit of preventing UV damage to certain pieces of furniture and parts of the carpet, so they are well worth having in any conservatory.
Aluminium conservatories are typically more expensive than other types, and have the disadvantage of being poor insulators as well. Nevertheless, they are extremely sturdy and durable and are ideally suited to commercial residences, rather than personal household’s where it’s more difficult to have the material match the aesthetics of the rest of the house.
Convey your ideas and vision for your new conservatory to our experienced designers in order to create a bespoke design or alternatively get us into contact with your architect, and we’ll work together to establish the layout and structure of your new extension. You can choose from a range of different conservatory styles, such as Victorian, Edwardian, P Shape, Gable, Lean-to or an Orangery.
Match the aesthetic appearance of your conservatory to the rest of your home by choosing from one of our three primary building materials. Currently we offer aluminium, hardwood and uPVC, all supplied in accordance with our company’s high standards.
Providing planning permission is not required, work can be undertaken just days after the final design has been produced, and a personal project manager will be assigned to your project so that all progress and costs are made transparent to you.
Work can be completed within two weeks, though in certain cases this can be substantially shorter. All supplies are acquired and transported by us, for you, and are stamped with the quality approval that is necessary for a high quality, long lasting finish. Custom modifications can be applied as long as the final design has not been fully implemented, and features such as multi-faceted fronts or open sun roofs can be added in if you opt to change your design.
Blinds will be mandatorily installed in your conservatory in order to reduce glare and heat accumulation. It will also ensure that UV damage to furniture and carpets in the new room is minimised, and will come at no added cost.
