Gable-End Conservatory Style

A gable-end conservatory can add real grandeur to your home. Gable-end conservatories date back to the Georgian style, of which modern gable-end conservatories are a variant. With a gable-end conservatory, the front of the roof doesn't slope back to the centre. Instead, the front of the conservatory stays upright, like the end of a house. This is where the gable-end conservatory style gets its name from.

A gable-end conservatory is square or rectangular in style, like a Georgian conservatory. This gives you maximum space to plan the interior of your gable-end conservatory. The gable front of the conservatory adds style and also maximises light coming into the room, while the height of the conservatory gives the room a feeling of space. The gable roof provides a grand and stunning impact both inside and out, and the front of the gable-end conservatory looks like the rising of the sun. This is often called a sunburst effect.

Gable-end conservatory styles are excellent for capturing the period heritage of conservatories. It's a style that's reminiscent of the opulent orangeries and conservatories of bygone centuries. Gable-end conservatories have stylish front elevations with windows that extend right to the apex, giving them an imposing feel and a stately grandeur that's perfect for period homes.

Gable-End Conservatory Design

Gable-end conservatories have a square floor plan, an aspect that helps you position your furniture and plants, and they come with a front roof that's vertical, not sloping. This style increases the sense of airy space inside the gable-end conservatory.

Your gable-end Ultraframe conservatory can be glazed with glass or polycarbonate, which can be upgraded to higher thicknesses. Our gable-end conservatory styles are always designed to meet your exacting needs and you can include other elements of our range in the design. These include roof glazing and various decorative and practical finishes.

A popular gable-end conservatory style option is extra brickwork – perhaps a three-quarter or full-height wall on one side to tie the conservatory in even more with the property. Whatever you choose, gable-end conservatories are a grand and majestic option for modern or period houses of any size and never fail to impress your friends.
