Modern conservatories tend to be constructed from upvc frames that offer superior thermal efficiency and are easy to clean and maintain. For the glazed frames, you can choose from a variety of finishes, including attractive woodgrain finishes or ‘heritage’ colours, such as cream or olive green to match existing windows and doors.
For the roof, you can choose from polycarbonate, clear glass or performance glass. If budget allows, it makes sense to invest in some of the best roof glass technology on the market, such as tinted, self-cleaning high performance glass available in blue or green. This Low E glass has a special coating, which helps to keep conservatories cooler in summer and warmer in winter by blocking at least 60% or more of solar heat. The self-cleaning coating reduces maintenance by repelling water so the glass remains cleaner for longer.
Finally, when it comes to accessorising your new conservatory, innovative lighting is one way of adding that perfect finishing touch. A stunning new way to illuminate conservatories is a surround lighting system that can be fitted around the ring beam of any roof system, creating a perfect ambiance with indirect lighting. Uplighting bounces light off the roof glazing, while downlighting illuminates the windows and window boards around the room to provide warm, relaxing light levels when needed.
Whatever your space requirements and the size available to you, there is a conservatory style to suit. Lean-to conservatories feature a single slope for a roof and offer great value for money. Classic Georgian and Edwardian styles have square fronts and a ridge in the centre of the roof, providing plenty of practical space.
Victorian bay-fronted conservatories are another popular design, retaining the central ridge with three, or occasionally five, segments at the front. Where space permits, P-shape structures add a unique dimension, using a combination of a lean-to at the side of a Victorian or Edwardian-shaped conservatory.
Our conservatory is stunning and the after sales service is awesome too. All the team members from sales to installation are extremely friendly and helpful, very pleased.
Our new conservatory has impressed one and all! It has given us the opportunity to move the dining room table in there and created a light airy feel in the process. The radiators keep it nice and cosy too
We are writing to you to thank you for installing a wonderful conservatory. It has exceeded our expectations and the whole experience from beginning to end was great. Nothing was too much trouble.
