Think about position & function

Where in your home will your new bespoke conservatory be? Will it be North or South facing? Are you overlooked by neighbours? Do you want to make the most of your outside views? Where you plan to locate your new conservatory will impact on a number of choices including roofing, glazing options, feature doors and security accessories.

How do you plan to use your new extension? Whether it be extra room for the kids to spread out, a large open kitchen or simply a space to relax and enjoy the garden views, we can help you choose the ideal shape and design for your needs. Square or rectangle designs often provide the greatest floor space for family rooms, whereas an “L” shape design make way for great multi-use spaces.

What Else About Conservatories?

What are the different styles of conservatories?

In the UK, full UPVC conservatories come in a range of styles tailored to different architectural tastes and functional needs. Conservatory options include Edwardian, Victorian, Gable, Lean-To, P-Shaped, and T-Shaped designs. Each style offers distinct features, allowing homeowners to choose based on their desired look and space requirements.

Do you need planning permission for a conservatory?

For conservatories of UPVC materials in the UK, planning permission requirements hinge on factors such as size, location relative to property boundaries, and adherence to local regulations. Typically, if your conservatory meets certain size and placement criteria, it may fall under permitted development rights, exempting you from needing planning permission. Checking with local authorities or consulting with a professional can clarify requirements specific to your area. Don’t know where to start? We can help you with the process from start to finish, simplifying every detail.

A Classic Conservatory is a must-have for those people who enjoy simply being at home.

With our range of classic conservatory designs, offering both space and value, we have a selection of UPVC conservatories from which you can choose the perfect addition to your home. Predominantly glazed and often featuring a dwarf wall, iconic UPVC conservatory styles such as the originally named Victorian, Edwardian, Lean-to and Gable variations continue to enjoy their status as timeless favourites. However, vast improvements in the materials and components used in their construction have given these modern classics substance as well as style.

Lending themselves to a whole host of property types, Classic UPVC Conservatories offer the owner a private retreat away from the chores that wait in other rooms.

Grey Lean-To Conservatory
Stunning yet sympathetic to the existing property...

An internal lighting pelmet transforms a Classic into a Contemporary UPVC Conservatory and offers what many feel is a cosier environment, especially in the evenings. Mounted spotlights make a Contemporary Conservatory the perfect room to relax and watch the sun rise, and set. Externally, a cornice can also be introduced to add to the elegance.

The modern feel of Contemporary UPVC Conservatories can be heightened by coloured frames. Likewise Bi-Fold Doors, French Doors and Sliding Patio Doors are a common element of a Contemporary Conservatory and these styles of doors can be used both internally, to adjoin the UPVC conservatory with another room, and externally to connect the indoors with the outdoors.

With our UPVC range you can choose between textured woodgrain or a smooth surface finish...

It is very possible to successfully merge your home and glass extension so it looks like they were built together at the same time, thanks to our extensive colour range. Our standard finishes include green, cream, black, rosewood, mahogany, grey, light oak and whitegrain, plus we can accommodate the growing demand for coloured UPVC conservatories from our full range of coloured frames.

This does not mean that traditional white conservatories have lost their appeal, far from it, it’s simply that the availability of additional colours can give a new conservatory structure a unique distinctiveness.

A new roof needs to be the crowning glory of any conservatory...

If you want to be able to see a clear blue sky from within your new glass extension, then a double glazed glass roof is the best solution. Not only will it provide a clear view but it also glass tends to minimise the sound of any rain or hail that hits. In addition to its comprehensive list of benefits, the right specification of glass roof will deliver superb solar control.

Glass roofs can be tinted in various ways and there’s always the option to specify self-cleaning glass should the extension design mean that cleaning a section of the the roof could be awkward. From the outside glass roofs do look terrific as work well in unison with the glazed windows and doors.

The external look and internal feel of a tiled roof conservatory is something that no other roof can match...

There’s no denying that a tiled roof will obscure overhead light and views to some extent compared to a polycarbonate or glass roof, however, in terms of aesthetics both externally and internally it is in a league of its own. Any loss of natural light is compensated for by an increase in privacy and because roof windows and integrated spotlights are included in the design there’s no chance of the UPVC conservatory ever getting too dark.

To ensure the extension seamlessly complements a property, select a suitable set of roofing tiles and don’t forget that an insulated tiled roof can be utilised in both a new-build and a suitable existing conservatory.

Add the final details to your UPVC conservatory...

Our range of window and door handles are manufactured to the highest quality standards, to ensure years of performance whilst always looking as good as the day they were installed.

We’ll help you choose the right colour and style of window and door handles to finish off your new conservatory perfectly.
