Different types of Conservatories

Conservatories are an excellent way to bring the outside in all year. This implies that when selecting a conservatory for your house, you should think about the design and design that will best fit your needs and your house.

We offer a variety of magnificent conservatory types across our three choices to make it as simple as possible for you to design your glazed addition to your house. Whether you choose a more modern or classic style, all of our designs provide the same performance benefits as well as the aesthetics to complement your home.

The Lean To is one of the most popular conservatory types. This basic yet popular style is distinguished by its rectangular shape, which ‘leans’ to your home and is generally topped with a slanted roof. It’s quite adaptable, and it’s becoming increasingly popular among both traditional and modern homes.

The Victorian conservatory is another timeless design. This faceted style, which dates back to the Victorian era, is distinguished by its stunning decorative roof and rounded look.

Conservatories in the Edwardian style are very popular. These structures, also known as Georgian conservatories, have a rectangular shape with a slanted roof from each edge, giving them a sense of grandeur.

We also offer the following, Gable End, P-Shaped, T-Shaped, customised solutions, and more. 

Georgian Conservatory

The Georgian conservatory is a popular style for many types of homes. Whether you have a historic home or a more modern one, this addition will blend in seamlessly. Because the square form is one of the most spatially efficient designs in the field of home renovations, the basic layout of Georgian conservatories generally lends them nicely to a dining room.

Victorian conservatory

The Victorian conservatory is a market-leading product and is without a doubt the most popular expansion design in the UK. These incredible goods are great for all types of homes, both modern and historic, because they are affordable, elegant, and energy efficient. The narrow sightlines and breathtaking views will light up your home and give it a new lease on life. For that luxurious look, Victorian conservatories generally have a bay front, steeply pitched roof, and intricate ridge detailing. Depending on your preferences, your new Victorian conservatory may be made of uPVC or wood. Both are high-quality materials that are built to last. With a modern profile, you may enjoy all of the traditional elegance.

Lean-To Conservatory

The lean-to conservatory is a streamlined design that allows you to maximise your available space and is ideal for smaller houses or cottages. Modern lean-to conservatories complement both modern and classic residences, replicating a Mediterranean design that sprang from a desire to soak up as much light as possible.

This amazing structure has a pleasant amount of simplicity that makes it easy to personalise for modern dwellings. If you’re looking for a non-obtrusive addition, a lean-to conservatory might be the answer.

P-Shape Conservatory

The Best of Both Worlds The P-shaped conservatory that results from combining the simplicity of the lean-to with the grandeur of the Victorian provides an incredible amount of room for you to work with. Depending on your preferences, this mix of conservatory types can be three-dimensional or five-dimensional. In any case, you’ll have great vistas and plenty of light. The P-shaped conservatory’s connecting portion makes it ideal for homes that need to operate with a lot of space, whether it’s internal, outdoor, or both. Because of the huge size of your P-shaped conservatory, you may divide it into two distinct rooms if desired. Conservatories are more cost-effective than house additions since they are less expensive.

T-Shaped Conservatory

The T-Shaped Conservatory is a Beautiful Structure. The T-shaped conservatory’s eye-catching size is one of its most immediately recognisable features. This one is best suited to larger homes, since it blends in nicely with the longer walls facing the back yard. In fact, many conservatories are so large that they may be divided into various rooms and used as dining spaces in the summer. A T-shaped conservatory is the closest you can go to expanding your home while yet keeping the name “conservatory.” The appealing, symmetrical look lends a conventional and elegant feel to your home, and the centre projection serves to emphasise the overall design of the expansion. This is the ideal spot for a door to create a porch feel.

Gable End Conservatory

Bring Grandeur to Your Home. The gable end conservatory is similar in principle to its Georgian cousin. Inspired by this period of architecture, the gable consists of a square or rectangular layout for maximised space. The namesake lies within the roof, which stands upright instead of sloping back like other conservatories. This gives the gable end conservatory a distinctive look that makes it appealing to homeowners.

Thanks to the numerous windowpanes that adorn this gorgeous design, the gable end conservatory benefits from an enormous amount of natural light. In fact, many customers note the ‘sunburst effect’, where the front point of the gable end looks like the rising sun on a bright day. Traditionally designed and versatile by nature, these amazing products fit in perfectly with period properties.

Do I need planning permission?

With recent figures suggesting that UK property prices are rising at a 7% annual pace [] and the rising expenses of purchasing, selling, and moving, it’s no wonder that more and more Scottish homeowners are opting to upgrade rather than relocate.

Extending your house or building a conservatory or orangery are also excellent ways to increase space and value. However, before you start thinking about colour schemes and soft furnishings, you’ll need to consider about obtaining planning clearance for your project.

In 2012, changes to Scottish planning legislation went into effect, providing homeowners more latitude in the design and construction of house expansions. We explain what the Scottish planning system means to you in this article.


 Planning approval is usually not required in Scotland if the conservatory/orangery you propose fits the following criteria:

  • Any element of the construction should not be taller than your property’s original roof, nor should it change the slanting of the existing roof.
  • There should be no portion of the structure that is closer to the road than the original property.
  • The conservatory/floor orangery’s space should not exceed 16 square metres (4m x 4m) or 10% of the total floor space of the property in a terraced or semi-detached dwelling.
  • The conservatory/orangery floor space for a detached house should not exceed 24 square metres (4m x 6m), or 20% of the total floor space of the building.
  • There are no listed buildings or flats on the land, and it is not located in a conservation area.
  • You will not require planning approval if your planned construction complies with these requirements; nonetheless, you should get a Certificate of Lawfulness, which is written verification of this fact. This may be easily acquired from your local planning authority, and it will be required by your solicitor if you ever decide to sell your home.
