Open-plan conservatories have become increasingly popular in modern home design. Seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor spaces, creating a flow between rooms and maximising natural light and space. 

In this guide, we’ll explore the possibilities of open-plan conservatories, discussing their feasibility, benefits, and the necessary steps to achieve this stylish addition to your home

Can you have an open-plan conservatory?

Yes, you can indeed have an open-plan conservatory. While some alterations may require you to follow building regulations, there are a variety of design elements that can be incorporated to achieve an open-plan feel without extensive structural changes.

What is needed to open up a conservatory to your house?

There are several options for creating an open conservatory to your house. Firstly, you can opt for bi-fold or sliding doors between your house and conservatory, mimicking the feel of an open space.

Alternatively, you can explore the possibility of removing a wall in your home to fully integrate your house with the conservatory, but this may need to be in compliance with building regulations.

Why do you need building regulations for an open conservatory?

Building regulations are required when a conservatory is not separated by a wall and doors from the main house. These regulations ensure structural integrity and safety. Opening up your house to your conservatory without proper adherence to building regulations can pose risks and may not meet legal requirements. 

It’s crucial to consult with professionals and adhere to the necessary standards. For more information on building regulations, or if you’re planning to remove doors between your house and conservatory, visit our guidelines here or speak to our friendly support team.

How can you open up your conservatory without building regulations?

If you prefer to avoid the complexities of building regulations, there are many ways that you can still create an open-plan feel in your home and conservatory. For example: 

  • Bi-fold Doors: These doors fold back to create a wide opening, seamlessly connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • Sliding Doors: Sliding doors offer a sleek and space-saving solution for integrating your conservatory with the rest of your home.
  • Full-Height Glass Windows: Installing full-height glass windows can create a sense of openness while maintaining a distinct separation between the conservatory and the house.

Certain conservatory styles, such as Lean-to, Victorian, and Orangeries, lend themselves well to an open-plan design, with their large windows and versatile layouts.
