Continuing our series looking at the best product for your home. Today we answer the question: what are conservatories?

Conservatories are a clean and simple addition to your home. The choices you have to customise it mean that your conservatory can be unique and entirely suited to your needs. A conservatory has a glass roof, dwarf walls and window frames, which you can design in any configuration


The inside of conservatories are a blank canvases that can be decorated and furnished to suit your purpose. We will typically plaster the inside of your dwarf walls and cap them off with threshold boards. Additionally, we can supply and fit flooring to give a cohesive finish to the conservatory. We can fit a number of different electrical options. This includes lighting and heaters, and even include the option for under floor heating. Finally, you can use soft furnishings to create an additional living space. Alternatively, add a table to create a dining room with a view. Take a look at our advice for how to decorate your conservatory for more ideas.


Your roof can be made out of glazed roof panels, which are made out of high performance glass which has a self clean coating. This means that you don’t have to climb to clean your roof glass. Furthermore, the thermal performance of the glass means that it will be as energy efficient as glass can be. Additionally, you can opt for opening roof vents as part of your roof. You can therefore let any hot air out, and these can be both manually and electronically operated. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, you can replace roof glass with polycarbonate panels. These are thermally efficient and aesthetically pleasing.

Plenty of choice

Conservatories come in many shapes and sizes:

  • Georgian/Edwardian: A Georgian conservatory is square, with a pitched glass roof.
  • Victorian: A Victorian conservatory has a faceted front, and a pitched roof with ornate ridge details.
  • Gable ended: can be either Edwardian  or T shaped, where a triangle shaped frame is placed upright on top of the frames. This is instead of sloping back into a pitched roof.
  • T Shaped: a rectangular back section with a protruding front, which look great along the back of a house.
  • P Shaped: a long square section which ends in a faceted section.

Our conservatory products come in a range of colours. They range from traditional white and rosewood to more unconventional colours of Anthracite Grey and Irish Oak. Your frames can have different internal and external colours. This means you don’t have to compromise your ideal internal style for one which matches the exterior of your house. You can have a variety of crestings and finials which run across the top of your roof, and a choice of design in your gable end section.
