Choose The Right Design For Your Bespoke Conservatories

Bespoke conservatories have evolved dramatically over the last two decades with the typical designs now evolved.

Many conservatories are available as bespoke designs, so pretty much anything is possible within the constraints of what is structurally sound. However, there are basic designs to consider.

Victorian this is a design that incorporates an angled bay to the front elevation. The front bay is available in 3 or 5 angled sections. Realistically there is no real connection between this conservatory design and actual Victorian architecture, which is known for its Gothic revival style.

Edwardian, also known as Georgian conservatory design. This conservatory design uses a central ridge, in the same way as a Victorian, but the difference is in the base plan.

The Edwardian conservatory is square or rectangular. This echoes the Edwardian architectural style, which is much less ornate and is more functional. An Edwardian conservatory is a practical solution for those looking to maximise the usable space available in the conservatory.

Gable front conservatory. This design is similar in base plan to the Edwardian, but the central roof ridge continues right to the front elevation and a triangular gable frame is installed to the front. As with the Edwardian conservatory design this is a practical solution in terms of usable internal space and, due to the roof height, is an excellent option for allowing maximum light into the room.

P Shaped is a more complex design. The P describes the base plan of the conservatory. Usually the largest section of the conservatory is Victorian or Edwardian, essentially with a lean to section added. This can give a P shaped conservatory at least the feel of two separate rooms. A popular option is a dining room with lounge and for this a P shaped conservatory is an excellent solution.

T shaped is another, even more complex design. It is quite similar to the P shape, except that the central Victorian or Edwardian section will have a lean to section added to both sides.

The roof design is even more complex that the P shape and needs very careful consideration. It can be a very attractive looking building but not the most practical use of space, since the projecting T section is really only ornamental. Inevitably the more complex the design, the greater the project cost.
