Lean to/Sunroom

Maybe you’re looking for something a little less ornate. Perhaps you live in a bungalow or a house with low eaves. Either way, a Sunroom or low pitch conservatory equates to the perfect design solution. Sometimes referred to as a Mediterranean, Lean-to or Studio room, this style enjoys crisp, clean lines and has a truly modern feel.


The Victorian is one of the most popular conservatory styles. These conservatories are generally adorned with the traditional cresting and finials. They are versatile both in terms of size and practicality. They will complement almost any style of property and can be readily adapted to suit whatever space is available – whether a large garden or a small patio area. Typically Victorian conservatories have a three or five facet bay

This increasingly popular design enjoys an imposing front elevation, delivering a feeling of height and space. As a result, the Gable adds a real sense of presence to any home - even older, period properties. If you’re looking for a conservatory that takes your breath away every time you look at it, then this is definitely the style for you!


The Georgian conservatory, also known as the Edwardian, is characterised by its square or rectangular footprint. This means they are incredibly space efficient - allowing you to achieve the maximum possible floor area, with increased furnishing options. The Georgian conservatory isn’t just about function. It is a stylish choice that will suit many contemporary homes with its clear, strong lines. Often at its best with a brick dwarf wall.


Orangeries have a unique character and add style, space and functionality to a home.

Orangeries are something of a hybrid structure; part way between the conservatory and a traditional brick extension, making them the perfect space for home-hubs, cosy corners and dining or living spaces.

Modern Contemporary Conservatories

Conservatories have come a long way since their origins as a Victorian plant house. Although they are often separated from the main property by a door, today's interpretation often sees classic and contemporary designs offering much-needed room for overspill from the kitchen, dining space or living room.
