A Victorian Conservatory for Traditional Homes
If you’re looking for a conservatory that will add a touch of elegance to your home, then a Victorian conservatory is a perfect choice. The shape of the Victorian conservatory is softer and adds a more organic feel to the space as it merges with the garden, making it ideal for traditional homes.
If you want a conservatory that is both stylish and functional, then a Victorian conservatory is the perfect option. The large windows and glass roof let in plenty of natural light, making it a bright and airy space. The high ceilings make the space feel more open and spacious, whether you choose a glass, polycarbonate or solid tile roof.
Why Choose a Victorian Style Conservatory?
The Victorian-style roof may be more to your taste if you’re looking for something a little different. This roof is more ornate, with a curved or hexagonal shape. The Victorian conservatory is the most romantic of all the styles, but while the angled corners soften the look, they reduce the amount of useable space inside.
What Type of Roof Can You Have on a Victorian Conservatory?
You can choose any type of roof for all of our conservatory shapes. If you would like to use your conservatory all year round, consider a solid tile roof. This will blend with your house like a brick-built extension. To bring in more light, choose a roof system with large glazed panels.
You could opt for a solar glass roof if you want maximum light and to see the stars at night. The addition of blinds will give some protection on the sunniest days if your conservatory is South facing. A polycarbonate roof is ideal for those on a budget.
What is a Victorian Conservatory?
The Victorian conservatory is the most traditional style for a conservatory. It is often seen as a beautiful addition to a period home but can work well to soften the lines of a more modern home. It’s easily recognised by its ornate details, such as the corbelled corners, decorative cresting and finials. The difference from the other conservatory style is that the corners are angled, which impacts the space inside. If you are using the conservatory for casual seating, this loss of space makes no difference as the chairs are usually set at angles. If you wanted to use the conservatory as a dining area, you may benefit from keeping those corners square.
We’ll help you work out the space requirement and make sure you choose the conservatory style that works perfectly for you and your home.
Tiled Roof Victorian Conservatory
Life at home has changed recently for many people, and the extra space of a conservatory has become more valuable as an extra living space or office. If this is the case for you, you may wish to consider a tiled roof conservatory. This will give you the feel of a room with a plastered ceiling, but with more light coming in as the windows form the walls.
Adding extra living space far outweighs the obvious benefit of the immediate needs. How the conservatory is used may change as families grow and change, and if you decide to sell, the right choice of conservatory could add value or make your house more saleable.
Get the best of both worlds with a combination roof. Large glass panels give you the benefit of light but with enough plastered ceiling area to make the room comfortable all year round.
Will Your Victorian Conservatory Need Blinds?
Our conservatory glazing system offers superior thermal performance to ensure maximum heat retention and light diffusion. Modern glass is usually enough protection for most people if the conservatory is used for casual use.
If you plan to use your conservatory all year round, you may need blinds, particularly if your conservatory faces South.
A Victorian conservatory will require shaped blinds, which are approximately 1.5 times the cost of a rectangle blind. Reduce the cost of your blinds by asking your representative to double up over panes of glass.
P Shaped Conservatories
The P-shaped conservatory is formed with a Victorian conservatory at one end and a lean-to conservatory at the other. If you’re dreaming of a wide conservatory, this is the way to achieve it. The combination allows for plenty of space to be used in various ways and is a fantastic option if you want to use your conservatory for both dining and relaxing.
Similar space can be achieved with other combinations using an Edwardian or Gable conservatory. We’ll guide you through the options.
