It was the Victorian era in which the nation's love of the conservatory blossomed. This was because of the Victorians' love of foliage and exotic plants, which required a method of keeping plants alive during the cold winter months. In the 19th century, Victorian conservatory styles were created with ever-more-elaborate details to complement the period homes of the time. Victorian conservatory styles often included a Gothic shape to the windows and doors and complicated shapes in the roof, which was often steeply pitched, just like the roofs of Victorian houses.
