Lean-To Conservatories Style

The Lean-to conservatory, or Mediterranean conservatory, is the simplest style of conservatory, with clean lines that give it a contemporary look and make them a popular conservatory for modern houses. This conservatory style will be ideal for you if you prefer the simple, understated lines of a Mediterranean sunroom.

Whether your lean-to conservatory is traditional or contemporary, the style is perfect for properties that have restricted space under the eaves, like a bungalow, or have an area that's too awkward to accommodate a conservatory. This is because the pitch of the roof on lean to conservatories can vary – so a shallow pitch can fit under a low bungalow roof and a steeper one would be ideal for a terraced house.

Lean-to conservatories can also be called sunrooms or garden rooms, and they bring a flavour of the Mediterranean into your home, trapping the winter sunlight and converting it into heat through the glass. The simple shape of the lean-to conservatory gives you the maximum space in a highly economical style.

Outstanding Lean-To Conservatories

With Ultraframe, you can have a lean to conservatory in 4 different roofing systems. The Classic Roof system, the Quantal aluminium roof system, the Livinroof hybrid roof and the Ultraroof tiled roof.

These types of conservatories have their origins in greenhouses that were built to face the southern sun. This attracted the sun and offered shelter against cold north winds. These days, a lean to conservatory style is number one on the list of people wanting to improve their homes.

Lean-to conservatories have a simple design and, with at least one wall already built, they save time and labour, which saves money. A lean to conservatory style is not an expensive option, because of its simplicity, and with heating, electricity and water readily available from the house, installation and maintenance costs are lower.

A lean-to conservatory can also improve the energy balance of your house, provide shelter and catch the winter sun. You can use your conservatory as a greenhouse, a playroom, a dining room, lounge or kitchen. And now, with great features like floor heating and double-glazing available for your lean to conservatory, you can have a new living area room for a fraction of the usual price.
