Let’s take you through some of the conservatory styles in the Orion Windows range to hopefully help you make the right decision.

Edwardian Conservatory

Offering a square or rectangular shape, the Edwardian conservatory has a steep pitched glass roof and is renowned for providing lightness and airiness. Its flat walls make the placing of sofas or shelves within the structure easy whether you want it to be a separate living room, dining area or playroom.

Victorian Conservatory

It probably comes as no surprise that a conservatory design that dates back over 150 years complements period properties brilliantly and is the most vaunted conservatory style. Shaped hexagonally or octagonal, the Victorian conservatory supplies you with the amazing view of the exterior due to its round frontage.

Lean-To Conservatory

The compactness of a Lean-To conservatory is ideal for those living in bungalows and homes with a low-pitched roof. Known by some as a sun room or garden room, they’re one of the most inexpensive conservatory styles and despite their slender size, offer a surprising amount of liveable space.

Gable Conservatory

Make the grandest of statements by opting for the beauty brought by a Gable conservatory with its soaring roof and elegant sightlines. Typically integrated into larger residences, it allows lots of natural sunlight in to help accentuate the substantial size of the interior and leave it feeling energised.

P-Shaped Conservatory

A mixture of a Victorian and Lean-To conservatory, the P-Shaped conservatory comes supplied with 3 or 5 sides. Because of the P-like formation, it can be used for dual purposes. For instance, you could utilise one area as living space and the other area as a dining room for those wanting to combine the two luxuries.

Loggia Conservatory

You may not have heard of a Loggia conservatory before, but once you see it, you will never forget it! The Loggia has been brought to life using British engineering and Italian design. Featuring ornate corner columns and internal plastered walls and ceilings, it will make you re-evaluate your expectations of a modern home extension.

Bespoke Conservatory

You can have your say throughout the entire design and build process when you choose to go bespoke. Inform the design team of the desired conservatory size, shape and style and they will work their magic on screen. Once you have given the green light on the plans, your personalised conservatory will be fashioned for real.
