If maximum light and a conservatory that is less obvious to the eye is the priority then floor to ceiling glass panels work best. When you donít want to see the back of furniture and value more privacy you can add low maintenance PVC-U panels to the sides. The most popular solution is to have side walls designed with a dwarf brick wall because of the ease to add electric sockets, heaters, air conditioning etc.

Self build Conservatories- designed for you

All conservatories are based on one of four styles, the lean to (often called a sun lounge), the Victorian, the Georgian and the Gable. In designing the right one for you, we have supplied the following four points you should consider.

Lean to conservatories

Often best if youíre on a tight budget and certainly easiest if you own a bungalow. The simple, modern design creates maximum usable space and offers a practical solution for porches as well as homes. A lean-to conservatory can also be used with other styles to create what is known as a combination conservatory, especially useful when you want to create a very large conservatory or an unusual shape to best fit your home.

Victorian Conservatories

The most popular of designs. A Victorian adds style and traditional elegance to any home. Decorative in appearance, the angled walls create a less obvious extension when viewed from the outside.

Georgian Conservatories

Combine the elegance of Victorian with the practicality of square corners and you have the Georgian conservatory. Back-to-back Georgians also provide a more traditional solution for bungalows allowing you to build a conservatory that can be fitted under low eaves.

Gable Conservatories

Increasing in popularity the Gable conservatory shares many features of the Georgian but differs in that it has a traditional apex pitched roof to direct rainwater to either side of the conservatory. The distinctive flat fronts make a design statement that sets them apart from any other type of conservatory and helps promote sunlight to cascade into your new living space.
