Bring the garden into your home and your home into the garden – courtesy of a well-insulated and constructed conservatory that retains the heat in winter and cool in the summer.
   
VICTORIAN Conservatories

Thanks to its impressive versatility and its ability to complement most types of property, the Victorian is
one of the most frequently seen styles of conservatory. It can be distinguished by its steeply pitched roof and its use of ornate detailing along the roof’s centre apex - (called the ridge). Typically, a Victorian conservatory will have either 3 or 5 panel front facets.

   

The GEORGIAN (Edwardian) Conservatories

Called either the Georgian or Edwardian, this style of conservatory is similar to the Victorian. The main difference is that they are flat fronted where as the Victorian has an angular front. Representing a perfect marriage of form and function, they also tend to be more understated - making them the ideal choice if you do not wish to detract from the visual impact of the main property.

   
GABLE Conservatories

Few conservatories are more imposing or enjoy a great sense of presence than the Gable. A style that works especially well with older properties, these conservatories have a square floor plan. In addition, and unlike the Georgian/Edwardian or the Victorian, they also have a vertical rather than sloping front roof section, this maximises the feeling of light and space inside.

   
SUNROOMS or LEAN-TO Conservatories

Lean-to conservatories are usually rectangular with a roof that leans on to the main property (hence their name). They have clean, simple lines giving them a modern, uncomplicated look and making them suitable for a wide range of house styles. In particular, they are the ideal choice for bungalows or other homes where the roof has low eaves. Lean-to conservatories are also known as sunrooms and studio rooms.

   
COMBINATION (P Shaped) Conservatories

Combination and P-shaped conservatories are everything their titles suggest. They offer you more space and greater levels of flexibility by combining two styles – such as the Georgian and the Lean-to, or by adapting an existing style so that it can be used in the shape of a ‘P’. Should you find that a P-Shape or Combination still does not provide the unique design solution you are looking for, Hawthorns can also create a totally bespoke conservatory tailored to your own specific needs.

   
LANTERN Conservatories

Lantern conservatories are a majestic and memorable choice for larger conservatories. Not only do they add a feeling of height to the overall structure, but the use of glass rather than polycarbonate increases light levels and gives you an unhindered view of the sky above.
