Our Guide to the Different Styles of Conservatory


At Conservatories Etc, our customers are often surprised by the choice available when it comes to the design of their conservatory. As well as a wide range of coloured frames and many different types of glass and doors, there are a number of different styles of conservatory to choose from. To save you from confusion, here’s our simple guide to the different styles of conservatory.

Georgian and Edwardian Conservatories

A classic and popular design, Georgian and Edwardian conservatories are square fronted with a duo pitch high roof. They’re perfect for giving any property an elegant, traditional look, but they especially suit homes with existing Georgian or Edwardian features.

Gable Ended Conservatory

With a high ceiling and duo pitched roof with a flat faced frontage, gable ended conservatories can give your home a touch of elegance. If you want an airy, open space with plenty of headroom, this is the perfect style of conservatory for you.

Styles of Conservatory

Lean-To Conservatory

Sometimes called a ‘sun room’ or a ‘garden room’, a lean-to conservatory has a pitched roof that slopes away from your home. Because it runs alongside your property, it takes up less space than other styles of conservatory, making it a great solution for smaller gardens. The pitch of the roof can be varied to suit your property – for example, a low profile can suit bungalows – making this a simple and versatile choice.

Styles of Conservatory

P- and L-Shaped Conservatories

If you have more space, you could consider a larger conservatory. The P-shaped conservatory links a long lean-to conservatory with the traditional square style, creating a much larger living space. The L-shaped conservatory, meanwhile, has a ‘wraparound’ design that suits a larger home.

Styles of Conservatory

Custom Shaped Conservatory

If a standard style of conservatory won’t suit your home or your lifestyle, we can create something completely bespoke to you. With so many different designs and finishes available, we can work with you to design and install a custom shaped conservatory that works as an effective extension to your home.
