Sun-Lounge Conservatories

Sun Lounge conservatories have a single pitched ‘lean-to’ style roof and are sometimes referred to as ‘Lean-To’ conservatories or a Garden Room.

Sun Lounge DIY conservatories are generally the simplest, least expensive and easiest to build of all conservatory designs.

Normally square or rectangular in shape, the Sun-Lounge is the most economical of DIY conservatories in terms of build cost though most customers prefer something less plain.

Victorian Conservatories

Designed with a hipped roof, the stylish curved front of Victorian DIY conservatories normally have 3 or 5 sections offering panoramic views of your garden.

The more sections or ‘facets’ the Victorian bay has, the softer the front curve of the bay.

However, although a curved bay may add style and character to Victorian DIY conservatories, you need to consider the position of the doors and furniture as it could result in a loss of space, especially in small conservatories.

Edwardian Conservatories

Edwardian conservatories are often referred to as Georgian conservatories and are probably the most popular of all conservatory designs.

They have a hipped roof and are square or rectangular in shape.

Edwardian conservatories combine the shape and practicality of a Sun-Lounge with the hipped roof style of Victorian conservatories.

There are two styles to these conservatory roofs, Georgian – with the roof spars fanned out and Edwardian which is a more traditional hipped roof version.

Gable Conservatories

With the same rectangular floor space as Edwardian conservatories, Gable or Regency conservatories have a continuous ridge from the house wall to the front of the conservatory.

This forms a high, angled glazed front wall section to create a greater sense of space.

It also helps to keep your internal room brighter by allowing light to stream in from the high front windows – ideal in north facing conservatories where an internal room would otherwise be dark.

Combination Conservatories

Most conservatory designs can be combined with others to form extensions such as ‘P Shape’ or ‘T Shape’ conservatories by incorporating hips and valleys into the roof.

They are ideal for larger homes where conservatories could be built across the rear of the property with one area providing a dining room, the other a second lounge, for example.

You could have a single door to provide side access and front double doors, patio doors or bi-fold doors to provide access to the garden.

Although there is more involved in the construction of a DIY P Shaped conservatory than most of the other styles, the principles are the same, it’s just a larger conservatory.

Orangery Style Conservatories

A new style of conservatory has been introduced which maintains the ease of construction of conventional conservatories but which attempts to replicate some of the features of an Orangery.

The Orangery Style Conservatory perfectly blends the traditional features of Victorian and Edwardian Orangeries with ‘easier to build’ uPVC conservatories.

Timeless Orangery features such as ornate corner posts, deep gutters and decorative fascias combine with an Edwardian conservatory roof.

This provides the appearance of an attractive Orangery without complex lantern roof structures and the associated higher costs.

DIY Conservatory Prices – DURABASE™ base works and dwarf wall system

Other than a number of concrete pads to support the steel base, there are no excavation or concrete foundations to install.
