If you live in a modern home many of the traditional conservatory designs may be unsuitable for your property, especially if it is Art-Deco influenced or Post Modern. If this is the case you will be looking for a modern conservatory design to compliment your property. Whether you are looking for large areas of glass, minimal structural supports, frames or decorative flourishes, some compromises may be necessary in the design of a modern conservatory to make it a practical as well as attractive place to spend time in. Talk to our conservatory designer who has the experience to manage the problems and give you a design you can live with.
Colours and textures
There was a time when the choice of your conservatory was just white, well things have moved on and we are now happy to offer you a range of coloured and woodgrain frames. Woodgrain effects provide the classic appeal of timber - perfect for more traditional properties, whereas a black finish offers a more contemporary feel more suitable for modern properties. However if you want to create a totally unique finish for your home, coloured foils are the way forward. Available colours; black, grey, rosewood, oak, green, cream and white.
Including a lantern in a conservatory design will add to the ceiling height and give a real feeling of space. The two-tiered design adds an extra level to the main roof and can include opening windows to increase ventilation, but you will probably need to have these electrically operated due to their height from the floor of the conservatory.
Edwardian conservatories are a highly popular choice. Typical of the Edwardian era this design of conservatory features simple, straight lines and is predominantly square or rectangular, combining style with maximum floor space. This offers the effect of expensive simplicity and incorporates a feeling of a space and light.
The simple lines of this style make good use of your floor space. The Mediterranean is the most popular way of fitting a conservatory to low roofed properties, like bungalows. Forward projections of up to 4mtrs are possible. You can have glass to floor, dwarf brick walls or panel options.
