Conservatories have long been a part of British homes. Thanks to their ability to be crafted mainly off-site, they’re a cost effective way for many families to expand their homes.
Yet, as a time honoured classic, they also have a tendency to be… a little dated. With cheap uPVC frames, they can often warp overtime, and even devalue the price of a home, if poorly designed. Because of these faults, in recent years, the conservatory has undergone somewhat of a makeover. Transformed into a stylish addition, capable of bringing both space and light into a home.
Here are some of our favourite modern conservatory trends…
Lean to conservatories
Lean to conservatories aren’t particularly new, in fact they’ve been around for quite a while. However, it’s the way they’re now being crafted that gives them a new modern twist.
Instead of bulky, and cheap, uPVC white frames, many are now being constructed from aluminium with a much bigger emphasis on glazing. This means they’re easier to blend with classic brickwork, and that traditional slope gives those clean lines many architects are now favouring.
In the past, their simple shape has made them a popular choice for homeowners, allowing them to be added to homes big and small. And with their modern upgrade, we can’t see their popularity giving out anytime soon.
