Edwardin Conservatories

The Edwardian conservatory design lends itself to many house styles.

The Edwardian conservatory style features a flat front and a square or rectangular symmetrical shape. This makes the Edwardian conservatory a really handy shape for laying out furniture and plants, with no wasted space. The Edwardian conservatory typically has a high, sloping roof style that gives a spectacular vaulted effect. Your conservatory floods with light, making it a bright, airy and uplifting room.

Edwardian conservatories were originally built on period homes from the 18th and early 19th centuries, and the style has been replicated on many homes ever since. Own one and you've every right to feel posh, because the Edwardian conservatory was originally the preserve only of those with style and the very rich who lived in stately homes. The Edwardian conservatory was highly exclusive, coming as they did before the boom Victorian time for conservatories.

The Edwardian conservatory style has grown in popularity recently. Obviously, you can add your Edwardian conservatory onto any style of building, but the very grand style works best with existing Georgian architecture, typified by red-brick houses with white woodwork and white-stone cornices.
