One of the most popular types of house extension remains the conservatory. Versatile, smart and cost-effective, these additions to your home can now be used for many different purposes due to advanced double glazing and heating options. But how do you decide which style of conservatory you want?
The lean-to conservatory, also known as the Mediterranean, is the simplest kind of conservatory and is ideal if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on the project. They make use of the back wall of the house and extend outwards with a single pitch roof.
There are several styles of conservatory that come from historic periods. The Victorian is one example, a popular style that has a bay front and pitched roof, often with an ornate roof ridge. Another example is the Edwardian or Georgian style which has a flat front rather than a bay front and is generally rectangular in shape.
A gable conservatory doesn’t have a slope from back to front but stays the same height all the way through. This is ideal if you prefer the feeling of extra height in your conservatory. A P-shaped style is a combination of a lean-to and a Victorian or Edwardian with a basic area then an extended, shaped section. Likewise, a T-shaped style has a central projection and uses most of the width of the home – it is popular with detached houses that have plenty of garden.
