While there are no hard and fast rules for choosing the best option, the style of your existing home should play a central role in your decision. If you own a Victorian house, for example, the special design features of an Victorian conservatory are likely to work wonderfully alongside those of your existing property to showcase the best of both structures.

The Lean to conservatory is the most economical conservatory style. If you prefer the understated, there's a traditional Sun lounge or Lean to Conservatory, which offers refreshingly clean lines.

Gable Front/ Regency/ Pavillion

 

A pavilion conservatory, also known as the Gable style, provides a marvellous ‘garden room’ adding real distinction to your property.
