Bespoke Conservatories

Add space and value to your property with our range of conservatories.

There are many styles of conservatory extensions for you to choose from, including Edwardian, Victorian, Lean-to and Gable varieties. You can work with our expert staff to help design a conservatory extension that suits your specific vision for your home.

Whatever you want to use your conservatory for, we’ll design a dream conservatory you’ll love spending time in.

Conservatory Roofs

The roof that you choose for your conservatory will influence the amount of time you spend in it. A poorly insulated conservatory will be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter, making it unusable for much of the year.

You can avoid this by choosing a good quality conservatory roof. All our roofs are good quality but even the best quality glass roof will require blinds on the hottest days, especially if your conservatory faces South.

If you want to use your conservatory all year round, consider a solid tile conservatory roof.

Modern Conservatories

The most distinctive aspect that separates a traditional design conservatory from a modern one is the internal lighting pelmet. While it might seem like a small feature, this element has a big impact on the overall look of conservatories. These pelmets are perfect for fitting light fixtures, allowing you to illuminate your expanded living space at night.

We can create completely bespoke conservatory extensions to complement your home. The possibilities really are endless with our conservatory design and installation expertise.

Conservatory Styles

The shape of your conservatory is led by the roof. The Victorian cuts off two corners and creates a more complex shape, so if space is the priority, it may be better to choose a shape that presents a square or rectangular room.

There is a limit to the depth of a roof, so a conservatory that is wide, typically that goes across the back of a house or large room, is usually made up of two conservatory designs such as a lean-to and an Edwardian, Victorian or Gable. The shaped part protrudes from the lean-to and is known as a P-shape if it is at one end or a T-shape if it is in the middle.

 

Conservatory Extensions

Since the popularity of solid roof tiles for conservatories, there’s been some debate about whether a conservatory is a conservatory or becomes an extension if it doesn’t have a glass roof.

Search the term “conservatory” and you’ll find the definition given as

“a room with a glass roof and walls, attached to a house at one side and used as a sun lounge or for growing delicate plants.”

The conservatory has come a long way since it was used primarily for growing plants.

Solid Roof Conservatories

Conservatories have been popular in the last 40 years because they have traditionally been a low-cost way of adding extra space. A conservatory has always been cheaper than a full extension and because of the glazing, a beautiful space that connects with the garden. The downside has always been that it is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.

A lightweight solid tile roof provides the connection to the outside because of the glazed walls, but with a plastered ceiling just like the rest of your house. The best of both worlds.

See the Stars

The most popular conservatory roof is still glass. There is no better place to sit on a summer evening than a glass roof conservatory where you can watch the sunset or see the stars.

You’ll be spoiled for choice with options for making your conservatory perfect for the way you live. A range of different thicknesses and tints help to control the amount of light and heat that enters the room and a manual or electric vent will help with airflow.

We’ll explore the roof options with you so that you make the right choice.

Conservatory with polycarbonate roof

Light-Weight and Cost-Effective

The lowest cost option for a conservatory roof is polycarbonate. It is lightweight, strong and obscure, so reduces glare. It’s the right choice for many people, especially those who want the most space for the least money.

Polycarbonate does not have the insulation properties of glass but you can make improvements with specially designed solar inserts.

When you choose your conservatory roof, also think about the room that it is built on to, as the light to that room will be affected.

Edwardian conservatory with glass roof

Edwardian Conservatories

The Edwardian Conservatory is an excellent all-around choice. It still allows for a square or rectangle room but gives the benefit of a high ceiling or roof. This style can still be used on a bungalow but requires a double-sloped roof to take the height back to the lower bungalow wall.

If you think of the lean-to conservatory as the most modern and Victorian as the most traditional, the Edwardian falls in between the two. It can lean either way depending on decorative features.

Victorian Conservatories

The Victorian Conservatory is still popular in Northampton. The angled corners make it the choice for those who are using it as a garden room for relaxing rather than for those for whom space is the priority. One thing to bear in mind if you choose to have blinds. Shaped blinds are more expensive than rectangles. Ask your blind supplier if it’s possible to reduce the number of blinds by measuring for 1 blind per 2, or more, roof panes. This will reduce the price considerably.

If one side of your conservatory is along a straight edge, such as a fence or building, you can have just one corner in Victorian style and the other as Lean-to or Edwardian.

Lean-to Conservatories

A lean-to-conservatory is a popular choice for many people because it is a simple and elegant design that can work with any building. It is also one of the most cost-effective conservatory designs because rectangle glass panes are cheaper than the shaped ones used on Edwardian and Victorian conservatories.

A lean-to-conservatory has a flat roof that usually slopes down from the house, however, you can have a reverse slope. A reverse lean-to roof is a great choice for the back of a bungalow or single-story extension where you can’t achieve enough of a slope from the height of the main building.

A lean-to looks modern and can be adapted to almost any property style.

Gable End Conservatories

The Gable End extension combines all that is best about conservatories. It is rectangular so uses all of the floor space, has a high centre so plenty of glass for maximum light and is finished with a stunning triangular front. It has elegant simplicity with a stylish gable which can be plain or created with a sunburst design.

Even though the floor space may be the same as an Edwardian, the high roof along the full length gives a sense of space, especially with a tiled roof which has a plastered ceiling. The Gable is the main feature and you will want it to be seen. When considering the style of the conservatory, consider where it is seen from and if you will benefit from the full view of it.

Conservatory Choices

There’s a lot to consider before you choose your dream conservatory. You will live with it for a long time, and its use may change over the years. Who knew that COVID would come along, making a tiled conservatory roof popular as homeowners rushed to find extra office space for working from home. Think about how the space will be used. Will you watch screens? Is your new conservatory going to be a luxury space that you can keep for relaxing when the weather is perfect?

Knowing how the space will be used will help you make the right choice.

Conservatories & Orangeries

You’ve probably first of all thought about creating extra space. A conservatory is an obvious choice if you don’t want the upheaval or cost of a full extension. An orangery falls between a conservatory and an extension. It has more wall space and a light pelmet perimeter. The lantern roof sits in that space, so it is less exposed to sunlight. There is more building work involved with an orangery which makes it a higher cost than a conservatory.

Aluminium & uPVC

We offer conservatories in a choice of either uPVC or aluminium. Each comes with its own unique qualities. Aluminium conservatory extensions have slimline frames, which helps to create a contemporary look. uPVC is a cost-effective material that is also low maintenance.

We’ll work with you to understand how you will use your new space and the environment so that we can make the best recommendations.

Roofing Options

Several roofing options are available for a new conservatory, each with its own set of characteristics. The choice often depends on factors such as budget, aesthetics, energy efficiency, and personal preferences. Here are the common roofing options for conservatories:

Polycarbonate Roofing: This is a cost-effective option that provides good insulation. Polycarbonate sheets are available in various thicknesses, offering different levels of insulation and light transmission.

Glass Roofing: High-Performance glass roofs provide a more sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing option. They allow more natural light into the conservatory and offer better views of the surrounding environment. There are different types of glass, including self-cleaning and solar-reflective glass, which can enhance energy efficiency.

Tiled Roof: Tiled roofs provide better insulation and a more solid, traditional appearance. They can match the existing roof of the house, creating a seamless look. Tiled roofs are also known for their durability.

Combination Roof: Some conservatories use a combination of roofing materials, such as a solid roof over part of the conservatory and a glass roof over another part. This allows for a balance between insulation and natural light.

When choosing a roofing option for your conservatory, consider factors like local climate, the intended use of the space, and your preferences for aesthetics and maintenance.

Conservatory FAQs

Do you need planning permission for a conservatory?

In many cases, you can add a conservatory to your home without the need for full planning permission. This is because, in the UK, conservatories often fall under the category of permitted development, subject to certain conditions. Permitted development rights allow homeowners to make specific changes to their properties without going through the formal planning permission process.

However, there are limitations and conditions to consider:

Size Restrictions: The conservatory must meet size criteria to qualify as permitted development. If it exceeds these limits, you might need planning permission.

Height Restrictions: The height of the conservatory must also adhere to specific restrictions.

Location: The conservatory should not be at the front of the house, and there might be limitations on side and rear extensions.

Materials and Appearance: The materials used and the appearance of the conservatory should be in line with certain standards.

It’s crucial to check with your local planning authority or consult a professional to ensure that your planned conservatory complies with permitted development rights in your specific area. If your project falls outside these rights, you’ll need to apply for planning permission.

Does a new conservatory add value to your home?

Yes, a well-designed and high-quality conservatory can potentially add value to your home. Here are a few factors to consider:

Increased Living Space: A conservatory provides additional living space, which is generally attractive to homebuyers. It can serve as a versatile room, such as a dining area, lounge, or even a home office.

Natural Light and Views: Conservatories often have large windows, allowing plenty of natural light to enter the home and providing views of the garden or outdoor space. This can enhance the overall appeal of your property.

Aesthetic Appeal: A well-designed conservatory can improve the overall aesthetic of your home. It can make your property stand out and create a positive first impression, potentially increasing its market value.

Functionality: The versatility of a conservatory can be appealing. Homebuyers may see it as a space that can be used for various purposes, adding to the overall functionality of the property.

It’s essential to keep in mind that not all conservatories are created equal. A poorly designed or low-quality conservatory might not add as much value or could even detract from the overall appeal of your home. It’s advisable to invest in a conservatory that complements the style of your home, is built to a high standard, and adheres to any necessary regulations. Additionally, local market conditions and buyer preferences can influence how much value a conservatory adds to your specific property.

Is uPVC or aluminium better than timber windows?

Whether uPVC, aluminium or timber windows are better depends on a range of factors, including personal preference, budget, and the specific needs of your property. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to weigh these up before making a decision.

uPVC windows are a popular choice due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and energy efficiency. They are resistant to rot, rust and weathering, and can be easily cleaned with soap and water. uPVC is also a cost-effective option, making it a popular choice for homeowners on a budget.

Aluminium windows are another popular option due to their strength, durability and slimline design. They are resistant to rust and corrosion, and can be easily tailored to suit specific design requirements. Aluminium is also a good option for larger windows as it can support larger glass panes.

Timber windows have a more traditional and natural appearance, making them a popular choice for period properties and conservation areas. They offer good insulation and can be easily repaired if damaged. However, timber windows require regular maintenance, including painting and staining, to protect them from rot and insect damage.

Ultimately, the choice between uPVC, aluminium or timber windows will depend on your individual needs and preferences. At Styleglaze Installations in Daventry, we offer a range of window materials and designs to suit a range of budgets and design requirements. Our team of experts can provide advice and guidance on which material is best suited for your property and help you make an informed decision.
