Bit of history
Conservatories were first used in the Renaissance period to store plants during the colder months of the year and after a time people began to see that these “sun rooms” could actually be used to live in rather than just somewhere to store their plants.
At the end of the 20th century and at the beginning of the 21st century conservatories started to take on a new role and we started to use them more as sun rooms – somewhere to relax and enjoy the views that a glass room can offer.
In the UK the legal definition of a conservatory is a building that has at least 50% of its side wall area glazed and at least 75% of its roof glazed with translucent materials, either polycarbonate sheeting or glass.
Lean To Conservatories
The Lean to conservatory is the perfect choice for bungalows or where there is a limited amount of space. The conservatory is popular in the Med and the simple sloping roof makes the style suitable for both modern and older properties. The Lean to conservatory is a very simple and cost effective type of conservatory.
Trends change all the time but the Victorian conservatory is still the UKs favourite style when it comes to choosing a conservatory design. The curved appearance makes it more eye catching than other conservatories.
The Edwardian conservatory is an excellent choice when looking for the maximum use of the floor space; the floor area is either square or rectangular and has a flat front. With a sloping pitched roof which meets in the centre the roof it makes the conservatory feel airy and spacious maximising the space available. This design will suit all property types.
The most modern type of conservatory you can buy. This style of conservatory has a very modern feel to it and was created around the simple lean to style conservatory and can be built to have a combination of masonry walls or fully glazed walls. The additional feature this conservatory offers is the unique extended glass roofing which covers the patio or decking area.
