More Conservatories Designs
There are many variations of conservatories designs in the market, some are straight forward, whilst others will need a bit of forethought before you start. If you are considering something larger like a Bespoke Conservatory or Orangery these rooms may require you to apply for planing permission to build them before commencing any work. Planning and building regulations requirements will need to be addressed at the earliest stage as if you overlook then it can lead to some very expensive rectification work later on.

SOME POPULAR CONSERVATORY STYLES WOULD BE
- Gable or pavilion
- P-shaped, L-shaped, T- shaped
- Edwardian – Georgian
- Lean to & Veranda
- Garden & Sunrooms
Most of these designs show a rectangular floor plan, with the exception of the Victorian P-shaped, which has a combination of both rounded & rectangular. Additional features can be built in, such as in-fill panels, ‘dwarf’ brick walls and various doors such as French or Bi-fold if you wish.
You can also note that the options for the conservatory roof itself differ considerably, with Gable, Victorian & Georgian having high “vaulted” roofing, whereas your typical Lean-to example will have a single flat plane, usually sloping away from the house.
If you want, you can easily replace the glazed roof panels with solid infill UPVC composite panels to give the room a completely different look and style.
With the recent changes in planning requirements which lowered the percentage of the building which should be “translucent”. This could mean that for existing conservatories (or new ones) you don’t have to have the roof fully glazed which gives you a wider choice in the way your room will be used and finally look.
