Victorian Conservatories one design fits all

The Victorian conservatory is probably the most common design of conservatory currently on the market because it suits all house styles – be they period property or a new build, typically available in 3 – 5 facet window styles a steeply pitched roof and ornate ridge details all designed to incorporate a significant increase in space to your house for an extra room or just somewhere to relax.

It was during the Victorian era that the nation’s love of the conservatory blossomed, due to the Victorians’ love of all things botanical, particularly tender exotic plants, which could only survive the elements of the English winter when protected by glass.

Victorian conservatory styles were created with ever-more-elaborate details to complement the period homes of the time, often including a “curved” shaping to the windows and doors (a feature which still prevails) and complicated shapes in the roof, to mirror the roofs of Victorian houses.
