How to Choose the Right Conservatory

Back to list

Buying a conservatory is a big deal.

It’s one of the biggest changes you’ll ever make to your home.

So it’s important to make sure you get it absolutely spot on.

That means buying the right conservatory. An extension suitable for your home, that can be enjoyed by you, your family and friends.

If you’ve never had a conservatory before, and aren’t quite sure where to start, then the following guide will give you some help.

Which Type of Conservatory Is Best for My Home?

Conservatory Land offers a wide variety of different conservatory styles.

You can read all about them on this page. But a few examples are:

  • Edwardian
  • Gable-Front
  • Lean-to

We’re not going to go into detail about every single style right now (there are over ten styles!).

However, the main point to note is that you should choose a conservatory that you:

  1. Like the look of
  2. Has enough space for your needs
  3. Is suitable for your home

That last point is particularly important – you can’t install a DIY porch if you don’t have any space at the front of your house.

The Different Types of House

The type of home you live in will affect the type of conservatory you will be able to install.

For example, you might be looking at a conservatory for a bungalow, or a cottage conservatory, or an end of terrace extension.

And obviously a corner conservatory will only be suitable if you have a corner to fit it into.

The design is not particularly dependant on the type of house you live in – as it’s really about what you think looks good.

But certain styles are designed to be bigger, smaller, or in different shapes.

And, as mentioned already, you can’t install something such as a porch if you have no space at the front.

Please note that we also offer bespoke conservatories. We can take a look at pictures of your house and offer a style that will perfectly suit your needs.

For more information on this, simply speak to our sales team.

Your Measurements – What Type of Conservatory Can You Fit

The most important aspect is whether you can physically fit a specific type of conservatory on your property.

If the answer is no – then you need to choose a different type.

Take the time to get accurate measurements of the space in which you would like to install a conservatory.

(Note – You’ll need to do this even if you know which style you want.)

Then, you can begin to consider what size of conservatory you want. If you have enough space, then a DIY orangery would be an excellent choice.

Choosing the Right Conservatory

In conclusion – there are three things to do to pick the right style of conservatory:

  • Choose a style you like the look of
  • Choose a style that will suit your type of home
  • Choose a style that will fit in the space on your property

Follow these guidelines, and you’ll end up with an extension perfect for you and your home.
