When you think of a classic traditional conservatory, it’s most likely to be a Victorian style.
The Victorian conservatory is a direct descendent of the original ornate glass structures that were introduced to Britain in the late 1800s.
Highly decorative with an ornate gothic style, the Victorian has an apex roofline that usually features crests and spike finials.
Where other conservatory styles are flat-fronted across, the Victorian features a rounded front. Not unlike an extended bay window, the Victorian roof has a faceted front. This bay window effect allows for maximum views of the outside and makes the internal space feel considerably spacious.
The Victorian conservatory is perfect for a traditional style house. It does need a property with enough roofline height and might not be the best choice for a bungalow or a new-build modern house.
