Conservatory Designs: Edwardian / Georgian Conservatories

Deciding to add a conservatory to a home is one of the more exciting decisions that homeowners can make. A value-adding feature on any property, conservatories add light and atmosphere to homes, while bringing the outdoors in.

However, once the decision is made to add a conservatory to your home, many more await; the most important being the selection of your conservatory's design. With so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming. Practical advice is to avoid anything too elaborate or trendy and consider your options carefully, bearing in mind its designated purpose and how you are planning to furnish it.

A Popular and Practical Choice

Conservatories constructed in an Edwardian / Georgian design are exceptionally popular in the UK as a gracefully understated variant of the Victorian conservatory. Due to their full square corners, these conservatories are the best option if the maximisation of space is important. As no corners are cut in the design, and the room is a regular shape, this leaves more usable floor space. Timeless and elegant with strong bold lines, Edwardian / Georgian conservatories can suit almost any home; not looking out of place on a modern property or an older home.

Consult a Professional

For advice regarding your Edwardian conservatory, it is best to consult a professional. For all your glass needs you'll want to investigate the Pilkington Activ™ range of self-cleaning solar control products that were specifically designed for conservatories.
