There are a wide range of conservatory styles available. Choosing one that is suitable for your home is essential. If you are unsure, try asking your friends or relatives for a second opinion. Below are some of the common styles currently available.


The simplest and most popular form of conservatory, sometimes known as a sunroom. A single sloped roof running along the length of an external house wall.

The classic rectangular design of Edwardian-style conservatories allows the optimum use of space. A ridged roof system ensures symmetry of design.

This design comes with a ridged roof and a three or five faceted end wall, creating a half rounded feature. This unusual aspect makes the external design of Victorian style conservatories attractive but can slightly restrict the layout of furniture internally.

Edwardian gable

A flat-featured gable-end running from a ridged roof provides a classic shaped conservatory, favoured in upmarket new build projects.

Lantern top

Lantern top roofs offer an elegant, classic look for larger conservatories. The roof consists of two tiers with the different levels separated by a row of small windows. This style gives a conservatory real 'presence' and adds to the feeling of space.

A T-shape conservatory, if you have the budget, can be a very flexible solution.

Whatever shape you choose, always remember that a conservatory is a building extension in every sense and needs to be built on proper foundations just like any other extension.
