Victorian Conservatories

The Victorian period was between 1837 and 1901 and was hugely influenced by more rounded designs. In the vast majority of cases the only design factor that differentiates a Victorian conservatory from an Edwardian conservatory is that the Victorian is generally bay-fronted or bell-ended – that is to say the glass is pitched from the top of the 3 sides of the bay front, up to the ridge of the roof, creating a distinctive look by creating a rounded appearance to the roof and front aspect.

Victorian conservatories are the most popular at the moment with their rounded style giving them a more sympathetic, and pleasing feel. Another advantage of these conservatories is that they can fit in, and look great in the corner of an L-shaped or T-shaped dwelling.
