P-Shape Conservatory Style

The P-shape conservatory is a style that's ideal for larger, detached properties, combining a lean-to conservatory with a Victorian conservatory, which can be either three-faceted or five-faceted. When you combine a lean-to with a Georgian-style conservatory, this is called an L-shaped style.

The P-shape conservatory creates a versatile style. This is because the conservatory extends in different directions. The P-shape conservatory is, therefore, ideal for using as two separate living areas. Modern families often use the longer part of the P-shape style as a lounge or dining area, with the rounded part being used as a childrens play area. P-shaped conservatories often require larger proportions, so are better suited for larger detached properties, giving an impressive result.

The P-shape conservatory combines a mix of Edwardian or Victorian styles and is ideal for creating maximum space whilst keeping a sense of proportion in the property. The rounded part of the P-shape conservatory style can be specified in either a three- or five-segment design and the return part can have a hipped roof or a lean-to end. The beauty of the P-shape conservatory style is that it can add much-needed space to the house without swallowing up too much of the garden or requiring much in the way of garden redesign.

P-Shaped Conservatory Security

Conservatories are often wrongly seen as a soft target for opportunist thieves because of the amount of glass in the building. This is simply not true, With good security features a conservatory is as secure as any other room in you home.

There are a number of things that you can do to make your conservatory as secure as possible:

  • Ensure that you have internal beading on your glass, which prevents people from moving the glass externally.
  • Doors should be fitted with Multi point locking systems.
  • Windows should be fitted with a shoot locking mechanism which pushes two bolts into the actual window frame
  • Force resistant hinges should also be fitted to all windows and doors.
  • Ask your installer if your conservatory is covered by BS7950/7412 which is awarded for improved security requirements of mechanical loading, human intervention and glazing security.
  • If you are having a glass roof ensure you are getting toughened glass.

There are many other security precautions on the outside of the conservatory you can undertake such as security lighting, secure locks on garden gates and even prickly bushes planted round the garden can deter would be thieves.
