Our full range of conservatories

Conservatories can be a great addition to your home. From a smaller lean to conservatory to adding a whole new living room to your house you can get the extra space you need without moving home. We have designs to suit every house. If you aren’t sure about any of these designs, or you’d like something different please get in touch. We also offer bespoke conservatory design, which works well if your home is a more unusual building such as a converted church.

Living room conservatory

Living Room Conservatory

This is neither a conservatory or an extension. It combines all the benefits of a conservatory in terms of light and space but adds the solidity of an extension, adding a whole new dynamic to the space, giving it a ‘real room’ feel.

Orangeries

The main difference between a conservatory and an Orangery is the amount of brickwork used. An Orangery uses a lot more brickwork and is more like an extension with large windows and a glass roof.

Conservatory Building Regulations

Conservatories are usually exempt from building regulations unless a new structural opening from the house has to be built, or they are 30 square meters or more in floor area. The walls, doors and windows must be of external quality, and any heating system must have separate controls.
