Conservatories continue to be a popular choice for home owners and there are many reasons why people may choose to add a conservatory to their property.
For growing families a well designed conservatory can open up much needed extra space in the home, creating an additional room such as a playroom, dining area or open living space.
For those who enjoy their outdoor space, but don’t enjoy the typical British weather, a well placed conservatory can be a way to bring the garden and house together - allowing you to make the most of your outdoor space without the constraints of waiting for those warm, sunny days.
Whichever the reason behind your inspiration, building a conservatory onto your property will be an attractive addition that will add value to your property and make it more desirable should you think of selling.
But with so much variety available, choosing the right conservatory for you can be a bit of a minefield.

Designing your space
First and foremost you will want your new conservatory to compliment your property, so always start by looking at the style and layout of your current building. Will the construction need to be modern or traditional and what sort of space do you have to construct your new conservatory in?
Location is just as important.Typically, conservatories are added to the back of the house, however it is now just as common to find a conservatory fitted to the front, or side, of a property, or even wrap around both areas to make the most of your space.
This style is a popular one and suits most properties, old or new. The shapes are typically fan-like, spreading out around your property with a large bay style frontage.
Like the houses built during this time, Edwardian style conservatories are more intricate and focus on bringing in as much light as possible. They often incorporate very delicate details across the frontage and roofing and are mostly made up of glass.
If you prefer simplicity, this could be the style for you. More reminiscent of mediterranean sun rooms, these conservatories lean away from the house in a square or rectangle shape with a simple sloping roof.
The Gable-end is quite regal in it’s structure, with the aim being to bring in as much light as possible. They are typically high fronted with a gable style facade that doesn’t slope back but instead sits upright, similar to the front of a house.
