Edwardian Style Conservatories
We have recently changed our name from Ellwood Ltd to C&K Joinery Ltd. You can find our new website at www.candkjoinery.co.uk.
Similar to a gable end construction where the footprint of the conservatory is oblong/ square and having a ridge, the Edwardian style conservatory is easily spotted by the fact that the front part of its roof section ‘leans backward’ into the ridge. In other words a hipped front section.
This style conservatory really came into its own in the Edwardian era and the squarish shape provides a generous living area and bold lines.
Victorian styles with three or more facets don’t make optimum use of the internal floor space and can be more expensive to build with the use of squints (angled/ shaped bricks for the turns). Edwardian styles are much more easily achieved.
For building onto bungalows or low level buildings, this design (and the gable ended styles) can still usually be achieved by attaching a hipped back to the roof and a box gutter for the rainwater to be dealt with.
This style provides for a very light and airy feel inside – and ample places to put those Edwardian potted palms!
