The T-shape conservatory style works best on larger properties. The T-shape is a combination conservatory style featuring a central projection. It can be Victorian, Gable or Edwardian in style.
The T-shape conservatory is a very versatile style, allowing you to create two distinct living spaces within the one room. With T-shape conservatories, the central part projects into the garden, which exaggerates the sense of bringing the garden into the home. The central projection on a T-shape conservatory style can also create a ‘porch effect’. This can highlight your elegant French doors.
The T-shape conservatory is not only one of the most beautiful styles available, but also works well in just about any home. Your T-shape conservatory usually comes in Edwardian or Victorian styles, with the top part of the 'T' adjoining the house and the other section extending into the garden. The T-shape conservatory tends to be a large style and is a good way of making a traditional Edwardian or Victorian style bigger, perhaps for a larger family. The T-shape conservatory is better suited to larger properties – especially those with big gardens, as the part of the conservatory that extends away from the house tends to eat into the garden.
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 an Edwardian 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 children’s play area. P-shaped conservatories often require larger proportions, so are better suited for larger detached properties, giving impressive results.
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 re-designing.
