Conservatories – Design Your Own Sunroom

Lean-To Conservatory: This is one of the simplest patterns offered for conservatories. It is mostly rectangular in shape and is ideal in cases where space is limited. The design can be fitted under the eaves of the existing building and the pitch of its roof can be adjusted to match the roof of the portion from which it is extending. Lean-To can be of the full height type with floor to ceiling glass, or can be with a dwarf wall on one or more sides, or may be of the half panel variety where the glass does not extend full length to the floor.

Hipped Lean-To Conservatory: These are Lean-To conservatories with hipped wings to the side of the roof that will increase the amount of light let into the room. The hipped style gives it a classic touch and will be a welcome addition if space allows.

Gable End Conservatory: The main difference here from Lean-To conservatories is the gabled roof. The roof pattern increases the height and gives a more spacious feeling. It is elegant and simple at the same time, and suits most types of properties. Gable End can also be of full height, dwarf wall, or half panel varieties like a Lean-To.

P Shape Conservatory: This one is in the shape of the letter P, as the name suggests, and is a combination of Victorian and other patterns. P Shape also has glass to ground (full height), dwarf wall, or half panel options. The pattern allows maximum utility of space and affords better lighting. Those who go in for P Shape conservatory combine in it a dining space and working space, or space for working and relaxing.

T Shape Conservatory: This one is in the shape of the alphabet T. Here the dash of the T remains joined to the property while the vertical half of it projects out. The portion that juts out will be styled either in the Victorian or Edwardian pattern and the horizontal portion will be done to match it. A T-shaped conservatory is better suited for larger properties and will have plenty of space inside.

Edwardian Conservatory: Edwardian conservatories have a linear or squared front and a high pitched roof that increases the light within the building. It is so named because the pattern was common during the Edwardian era of the early 1900s.

Victorian Conservatory: This is a very elegant and stylish pattern, popular with those who have no space constraints or budgetary constraints. It can have a bay front or bell shaped front and can have 3 facets or 5 facets. Victorian conservatories may also be octagonal in shape.

Bespoke Conservatory: Bespoke conservatory is something that is customized to suit the needs of the customer. It can be any of the above types, incorporating the modifications suggested by the customer, or can be a completely new design envisioned by him.

In short, conservatory building has, over the years, evolved well into a wide range of designs that incorporate equally well the aesthetic aspects and utility value of the structure.conservatory roof panels
