Gable Front Conservatories
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 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.
