What types of conservatories are best for space?


For a very large and imposing style of conservatory, you should look at the T-shape. It has a versatile floor space that’s good for many uses.

There’s a central projection that might be Edwardian, Victorian or Georgian. You’ll need a larger property because of the proportions needed for a T-shape.

For those on a smaller budget requiring just a little extra space or a sun room, a traditional or lean-to conservatory can offer great value.
Ultimately, which style of conservatory you plump for will come down to personal taste, what you need it for and the style of your home.

T-shape conservatories are a mix of a copule or more other designs, such as lean-to and Edwardian, genrally rectangular with the projecting section palece generally towrads the centre.

You can get them in a rage of colours (Tapco are a popular manufacturer).
