A conservatory allows you to enjoy the benefits of your garden from inside. It creates a bright and spacious area for relaxing and entertaining.

The cheapest conservatory options are lean-to designs, which are a direct addition of space to your property and cost roughly PS5,000.

Gable-end designs rely on windows to bring in natural light. They are available in a variety of styles and can be added to most house designs.


If you want to maximise space and keep the extension in proportion to your house, a P-shaped or L-shaped conservatory is the way to go. These designs mix the best of lean-to and Victorian styles and can be built onto bungalows or terraced houses with shallow eaves.

The structure will need to be anchored to the ground, with a pile foundation (long strong cylinders pushed into the ground) or a raft foundation. Once the base is constructed, your contractor will add a damp course and a concrete floor.

Next, they will add your conservatory walls – dwarf walls if you’ve chosen them or polycarbonate if you’re opting for glass.


This type of conservatory is designed to maximise space while keeping a sense of proportion in your property. They have more windows and are generally a little more contemporary in appearance than traditional conservatories. They may require either a pile foundation (long strong cylinders pushed into the ground) or a raft foundation.

They also use toughened safety glass, which is safer than traditional glass as it breaks into small fragments rather than large shards. This makes it much easier to clean and maintain the interior of the conservatory.

Complex conservatories with a gothic style or bespoke space layout cost more as they require more specialised construction. However, these options will give you a unique building that is all your own.


Adding a conservatory to your home will provide you with an extra living space that is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. It will also increase the value of your property and help to make it more attractive to potential buyers.

A gable conservatory has a stunning impact both inside and out because of its unique roof structure. Unlike the Victorian style which cuts off two corners, this conservatory has a high vaulted roof that brings natural light into the room from roof to floor.

A modern lean-to conservatory is a great choice for homes that don’t have a lot of space for a larger glass extension. They are easy to fit, have a simple construction and offer great value for money.


There are many options when it comes to conservatories. You can choose to build a P-shaped conservatory, which combines a Lean-to with an Edwardian or Victorian style part at one end (or vice versa).

The materials and construction of your conservatory are important factors for the comfort level it provides – a draught proof roof is essential and you should also think about installing underfloor heating. Other options include laminated safety glass, which is hard to break and disperses if it does break into small pieces, heat reflective glass and self-cleaning glass.

These are all aimed at making your conservatory a year-round living space and improving the overall look of your home. They usually come at a slightly higher cost than simpler styles but are worth it for the added value they provide to your property.

Tiled Roof

A new tiled conservatory roof is a way to turn your existing glass or polycarbonate conservatory into an extra room you can use all year round. It also allows you to install internal plastered ceilings that bring in natural light and make the space feel like a traditional extension to your home.
