Victorian Conservatories.
Free Survey, Design and Quotations from Just a Quote

Though conservatories and orangeries originated in the Victorian age, Victorian Conservatories were not just designed for Victorian properties.

The stylish curved front of Victorian Conservatories can be built with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 sections and it will offer panoramic views of your garden.

The more sections or facets Victorian Conservatories have, the smoother the front curve of the bay.

 

The curved bay of Victorian conservatories adds style at the cost of space

The style of the curved bay adds character to the conservatory.

However, when designing Victorian Conservatories, consideration must be given to the positioning of furniture and the loss of space caused by the bay. This is especially important in a small conservatory.

Door position is also critical for Victorian Conservatories as a door on one of the bay facets can result in the conservatory floor space being dissected by a walkway from the house to the garden.

 

Versatile Design

The extremely versatile design of Victorian Conservatories allows the roof to be built with a pitch as low as 15º or as steep as 35º.

In three, five or seven facet Victorian Conservatories, the front section can be wider that the other two to improve practicality – it is then often referred to as a Gullwing conservatory.

Further, when hipped back to a box gutter or built against a new tiled dormer, Victorian Conservatories can also be built on to a bungalow.

Most companies also offer a choice of finial and cresting to finish of the ridge of the conservatory – or you can keep it simple, with none at all.

Victorian Conservatories – Design and Quotation Service

A surveyor can help you to decide not only on the style of conservatory which is right for you and your home.

They can also help with the types of window and door to be incorporated, the levels of ventilation and insulation required and the type of conservatory glazing. You will be advised about Building Regulations and planning permission and of course, pricing.

Most of the installation companies we deal with even produce scale CAD drawings and a superimposed image of Victorian Conservatories onto a photograph of your home.

Surveyors will advise on the use of casement, tilt and turn or sliding sash windows combined with a single door or double doors, sliding patio doors or bi-fold doors. Additional ventilation can be provided by either manually or electrically operated roof vents or proprietary ventilation systems which some manufacturers have designed into their roofs in the ridge and in the eaves beam.

Conservatory designers also take into account the aspect of Victorian Conservatories, as a north facing conservatory will probably need more insulation whereas a south facing conservatory will probably need more ventilation.

Additional protection from the conservatory overheating can be designed in, by recommending heat reflective polycarbonate or anti-sun glass in the roof. The intention is to ensure that all conservatories and orangeries are designed to be usable throughout the whole of the year.
