If you have a traditional home, it can be tricky keeping your home’s character when wanting to improve it. Modernising your thermal insulation doesn’t have to mean compromising on style. Increasing your space is no issue with these period conservatories. If it’s important for you to match with the rest of your home, these are the perfect choice. The conservatory styles below allow you to enhance your home without affecting your home’s authenticity.
Capture the grandeur of the Georgians
The Georgian conservatory, sometimes known as a gable style, is seen as the grandest of all the styles. Inspired by a period in history known for its decadence and classical tastes, these conservatories add a sense of luxury to your home. Symmetry is a key theme for this design and they usually have square or rectangular bases. It’s most recognisable feature is its high sloping roof which fills the room with a flood of light. This sunburst effect makes a Georgian conservatory perfect to relax in and bask in the sun.
A conservatory fit for a Queen
The Victorian conservatory is the most popular style due to its versatility. This allows it to fit into any type of home, especially traditional properties. Like much Victorian architecture, this style is inspired by foreign influences. Due to improved glazing technology in this period, a Victorian conservatory features larger glass panes. More light is able to flood the room through the pitched roof and make it feel bright and airy. These styles perfectly complement Victorian homes and gothic elements can continue the Victorian theme.
Enhance your home with Edwardian sophistication
An Edwardian conservatory is similar in shape to the Georgian style. However, it has a flat front and often has a row of windows at the top called fanlights. These can open to allow an increase in airflow around your home. These styles are the most spacious with maximum floor space so make fabulous dining and entertaining areas. Impress guests with your new and enhanced space.
Authentic and high-performing materials
The materials used for your period conservatory can affect how it looks. With conservatories from Crystal Living, you can choose from hardwood, uPVC or aluminium. Any of these can be coloured using our unique paint; we can recreate any colour imaginable. Choose from classic white, heritage cream or wood effect finishes. Hardwood however would give your conservatory the most authentic look and can blend in with your period home. Offering durability and impressive insulation, a timber conservatory will transform your home and maintain its heritage feel.
