One of the essential items on my hunting house list is a conservatory. It doesn’t matter if the property already has one or if it will be necessary to be installed.

Conservatories are the soul of a house. That space that you know will be filled with peace. At least, on my mind, it sounds like this. Besides, it can retain heat and light better in your house.

Did you know It became very popular in the European house in the 19th century? Conservatories are not a new trend. The more good news? You don’t need to have plan permission to have a conservatory.

But if you are willing to install a conservatory in your house, it’s better to understand their most popular designs before.

Some styles can be more suitable for traditional properties, but modern designs can also be quite popular. It comes in different sizes, types, and prices, of course.

This is known as the most luxurious of all designs. This kind of conservatory can also double the size of your house, adding more space to kitchens or living rooms, for example. Or even connecting properties.

It’s a big investment that sometimes can be looked more like an extension than a conservatory.

It offers not only space but also a lot of light to your home. The base of the roof in this kind of construction is different from other types of conservatories because it features a brick base and a centralised roof.

This is a quite popular and classic design and easy to recognise because its front is rounded like a bay window.

The Victorian conservatory is suitable for more traditional properties like the 19th-century ones, for example. At the same time, it can be featured in a modern type of house because it’s a quite versatile design.

It’s a perfect fit to bring natural light for the whole year. It also brings that kind of relaxing ambient that everyone in the house looks for to chill while reading a book. It is my favourite design.

It’s very similar to the Victorian one, but the roof is generally rectangular or square and instead of a bay window, it has straight lines and flat edges. It fits well with both modern and traditional houses. This kind of conservatory also maximises the floor space. It can be a perfect play space for kids or even a storage room.

It’s a great design option if you’re on a tight budget. It has this name for simply looking like it is leaning against the house. Especially in houses with limited garden space. Its simple design can be featured as a “veranda” design, for example. It’s easy to install and it’s a quite common type of conservatory design in British houses.

It’s a mix of the lean-to and Victorian design. It’s a great match if you are thinking about having two different living areas. It can work as a play area and at the same time want to have a dining room area. Having a p-shaped feature, this conservatory has an area smaller than another
