Conservatories remain the most popular addition to add space and value to a home. If you’re looking for a stylish entertaining space, cosy family area, a way to maximize surrounding views or a practical home office, we can design and create your ideal room.

There are a range of conservatory styles

There are so many different choices and they can be fully customised to your tastes—from choosing materials to the design of the conservatory. Based on your preferences, your conservatory can be totally unique to you. Whether you’re looking for a classic white uPVC conservatory or a modern grey extension, we’ve got a type of conservatory to suit your personal style.


Popular Styles of Conservatories

Victorian conservatory

This is a very popular style of conservatory. It features bay windows that give it the appearance of being curved and has a pitched, ornate roof, providing maximum space. A Victorian conservatory is particularly suitable for period properties but suits any home. These conservatories come in two styles: a traditional three-facet front with three bay windows and a five-facet front that gives more space inside, as well as providing a smoother look.


Edwardian conservatory

Like Victorian conservatories, an Edwardian conservatory has a rectangular interior that maximises space and is ideal for those looking for a classic style with a timeless appearance. An Edwardian conservatory is also referred to as a Georgian conservatory and boasts a sloping roof and contemporary look, making it suitable for most properties.


Lean-to conservatory

A lean-to conservatory has a flat angled roof that slopes downward, thus giving this conservatory style the appearance of leaning against a house. Perfect for houses restricted by height, the low pitched roof of a lean-to can be easily accommodated, making it the ideal choice for bungalows or terraced properties. It is quick and easy to install, as well as a practical and inexpensive solution.


Gable conservatory

A Gable conservatory features the same rectangular or square dimensions as the Victorian conservatory. However, its roof stays upright rather than sloping downward. Many homeowners opt for this style because it tends to add a touch of grandeur to their homes. This type of conservatory is bright and airy and makes the perfect stylish addition to any home.


Loggia conservatory

Inspired by the Italian renaissance period and combined with British innovation, a Loggia features a roofed gallery or recessed room open to the air on one side and supported by ornate columns. The Loggia conservatory takes the Italian Loggia and syncs it perfectly with British architecture allowing this design to suit old and new properties alike and redefines the modern conservatory.

Top Tips for Transforming Your Conservatory

If you’ve got an old conservatory with a plastic roof, then you’re probably familiar with the host of common conservatory problems that may arise over time. From leaky roofs and sticky windows to extreme temperatures and condensation, there are quite a few common issues that come with an old conservatory. Many homeowners just don’t know what to do with an old conservatory or how to transform it into a functional home extension. Here at Supercraft Windows, we have put together a few of our top tips for transforming your conservatory in 2021.

 

  • Beware of low prices. If one quote is much lower than the rest, you may be inadvertently buying a Clad-over roof. If you’re unsure about the price, ask for more details about the roof construction. 
  • Be sure to compare roof weight, U-Values, and wind and snow load tolerances.
  • When you install a solid roof, it’s important to design in-glass panels within your solid roof. This ensures your new room is bright, as well as warm and cosy during the cooler months. 
  • Always ask to see a copy of your building regulations conformance certificate  BEFORE the build starts. You will need this if you ever sell your house. 
  • When you book your installation, plan to be at home, be vigilant and ensure all beams and bars are removed BEFORE any materials are added. 
  • Before booking an installation, do your research. Look for accreditations, endorsements and reviews. 
  • Make sure you’re covered. Ensure your roof and the installation are both guaranteed and that the guarantees are backed by quality insurance.
