We are all looking to add some extra space to our homes, maybe for a kitchen, playroom, dining room or simply a room to relax in. A conservatory creates a cost effective way to increase the value of your home and provide you with all the space and light you need for relaxing and entertaining.
The interior design of your conservatory is so important – you need to ensure your dreams and aspirations come true! Whatever style is right for you, just add the furniture, fabrics, lighting, heating and flooring to create an atmosphere to dine, work or just relax in. New designs in furniture and trends in blinds, accessories and flooring has meant that a conservatory is not just an extension, but an extra room, a room from which you can enjoy light, space and your garden.
Georgian & Edwardian
The Georgian and Edwardian conservatory will allow your new extension to flood with light due to its high roof style which gives the room a bright and airy feel.
With its flat front and rectangular/square shape, the conservatory ensures no wasted space, so plenty of room for your furniture, plants or new kitchen. This style of conservatory can be installed onto any property, but the styling is best showcased on properties with existing Georgian or Edwardian architecture or features.
Referred to as either a Georgian or Edwardian style, this is a classic conservatory type that combines practicality with style. The straight sides of the conservatory also make it an ideal choice for combining with a bi-fold door, creating a stunning and versatile addition to your home.
The Victorian conservatory is a timeless design that adds a touch of elegance to your home.
Victorian conservatories typically have a 3 or 5 panel faceted end which gives them their unique look and charm. This multi-faceted bay gives excellent all-round views and can help extend your enjoyment of your garden, as you watch the changing seasons from the comfort of your new conservatory.
The Victorian conservatory also provides an elegant way to soften the transition between your house and garden.
Gable style conservatories have two sloped roof sections ending in a vertical gable end, like many house designs. The Gable style of conservatory works extremely well with older properties, and can help to echo the style of the main building.
With a sense of architectural grandeur, the Gable end conservatory offers a light and airy design, additional headroom and excellent use of the available internal floor space.
The Lean-to style of conservatory is usually rectangular with a roof that slopes away from the property. The effect is modern, uncomplicated, with clean and simple lines, making them suitable for all house designs.
A Lean-to is often referred to as a sun room or garden room, and is an ideal style for properties with a limited amount of space. The pitch of the roof is variable so it is able to fit under low roofs, such as commonly found on bungalows, or with a steeper pitch for a detached house.
P-shaped | Lantern | Custom
By combining a mix of conservatory shapes you will be able to achieve more space and greater levels of flexibility – why not add a Lean-to to a Georgian, or a Lean-to and a Victorian, with a 3 or 5 faceted front?
Whether you are wanting to create a P or T-shaped conservatory or something more unusual, such as a raised lantern roof design, we will handle the whole project for you – from design through to project management and build. Leaving you with a custom-made conservatory perfectly suited to your individual requirements.
Imagine an elegant and comfortable room, which delivers a warm and bright space that is the envy of all. This is what an orangery will bring to your home. Relax on warm summer evenings and yet enjoy a feeling of comfort and warmth during winter months.
Enhancing the Global range of proven conservatory designs and manufactured from the state of the art modern materials, the scope is endless. Orangeries can provide a unique multi-purpose living space for every home, from kitchen extension, living room, dining room or playroom. Our orangery uses the market leading Global roof with a well engineered internal framework, which is then plastered, which gives the roof a perimeter ceiling all the way round. Within this perimeter ceiling you can choose to add downlighters or speakers giving you the opportunity to personalise your new room.
Viewed from outside, the roof of the orangery is partially hidden by a decorative fascia and this shapely cornice conceals the orangery gutter for a more attractive external appearance. A conventional fully glazed conservatory might not be for everyone’s taste, therefore the added style and decorative elegance of an orangery creates a more substantial and interesting effect.

Artisan Woodgrain Collection
Our range of Low E, low maintenance and solar control glasses are the perfect choice for customers looking for the ultimate in glass solutions. A glass roof dramatically improves the views from within your new conservatory, allows for more natural sunlight and instantly gives your new conservatory that all important wow factor.
Low E Glass
Low E glass has a microscopic metal coating which reflects the heat back into the room. Double glazed units which incorporate this glass offer up to 33% better insulation than conventional insulating glass units, therefore keeping your home warmer and reducing your heating bills.
Low maintenance Glass
A revolutionary coating can be applied to glass as part of the manufacturing process, which means that it is fused to the surface of the glass and therefore lasts the lifetime of the pane. The coating uses the rain and natural light from the sun to efficiently combat the dirt and grime that accumulates on the outside of the window. By reducing the need for manual cleaning it provides the ideal solution for keeping those dangerous or hard to reach areas clean, leaving you more time to relax and enjoy your conservatory.
How does it work? There are two processes. Firstly, the special coating harnesses the natural daylight which triggers the breakdown of the dirt and grime on the outside of the glass and secondly, when the rainwater hits the glass, rather than forming droplets, it flattens and spreads out across the surface of the glass helping to wash away the dirt and grime. This sheeting effect also minimises spots and streaks by helping the glass to dry more quickly and evenly.
· A permanent coating that lasts the lifetime of the window
· Perfect for areas that are hard to clean
· Glass stays cleaner for longer
· Less dirt and grime adheres to the window, so any cleaning is quick and easy

Solar control glass
Solar control glass can be used on our conservatory roofs to help prevent the build-up of heat during the hot summer months. The coating on the glass helps reflect the heat from the sun back to the outside of the conservatory giving you a more comfortable and usable living space. The glass is available in a range of tints which allows the glass to absorb more heat, whilst the coating reflects the heat back to the outside.
· Tinted to absorb the heat
· Coated to reflect the heat back to the outside
· Tint and coating together absorbs and reflects heat for maximum comfort
· Eliminates the need for expensive window dressing
