Aug 18, 2007
The Victorian Conservatory is the most popular style of conservatory, with a versatility that makes its distinguishing architectural features such as a bay front give a curved shape and steeply pitched roof and ornate ridge details give this style a more classical appearance.

The Georgian is a flat fronted style that offers excellent use of floor space due to the square or rectangular internal shape. Each side of the roof slopes back to the centre and the resulting contemporary style is suited to the majority of properties.

A gable fronted conservatory adds a sense of grandeur to any home. With a high roof slope and the same floor space as a Georgian, a gable offers excellent use of internal space. The front panel of the roof remains upright rather than sloping back to the centre as on a Georgian, creating a feeling of great height within the conservatory. The gable fronted style of conservatory is available in the classic system.
