Bespoke Conservatories – Individually Inspired
Bespoke Conservatories are those which don’t fully fit into a specific style, although they can very often be a combination of 2 popular designs. Common variations would be P-shaped, T-shaped or L-shaped rooms, where the smaller section may be Victorian, Edwardian or Georgian with the larger section being a Lean-to style.
These types of installations tend to be on the larger side and because of that there may be planning & building regulation requirements that need to be taken into consideration. However, the majority of properly certified installers will be able to handle the situation professionally as part of the contract.
If you really want to be individual in your look, then a truly bespoke Conservatory is the one for you as you have total freedom to be as individual & unique as you please.
With the fantastic range of materials, colours & finishes that are available in the market you have an almost unlimited choice in the size & appearance of a bespoke Conservatory.
Additional Features include:
- Dwarf walls in brickwork / Solid in-fill panels
- Full-Glass sides / Half-Glass Sides
- French Doors or Folding Doors
- Choice of colours / Wood-grain effect or smooth surfaces
- Patterned or Leaded Glass / Low-e thermal Glass
- Poly-carbonate roofing panels
With so much glass used in the walls, it is well worthwhile thinking about how to regulate the temperature inside the conservatory as the outside weather can have quite an effect on the heat or cold that builds up on the inside of the room. There are a number of ways to address these issues:
- Thermally efficient (low-e) glazing; can regulate the flow of heat & cold through the glass.
- Under-floor heating; can provide efficient and even heating during colder months.
- Roof Vents; can greatly improve ventilation & reduce excess heat build-up during sunny days.
- Poly-carbonate roofing panels; can help to reduce heat build-up.
- Tinted or coloured glass; can also help regulate internal heat build-up.
- Air Conditioning; not essential, but makes the room very pleasant all year round.
- Venetian, Roller or Roman Window Blinds; a cheap & effective way to control light.
Whilst the majority of Conservatory installations in the UK fall into the “permitted developments ” category and have no need for planning permission, it is advisable to check before starting work – there is a general guide here:
