The lantern conservatory has one of the most unique shapes, featuring a two-tiered effect which is reminiscent of the orangeries from years gone by.

Characteristics of Lantern conservatories

The main characteristic of a lantern conservatory is its unique two tiered roof. Made of glass or polycarbonate, this roof can either be kept sleek in design or be decorated with ornate detail. This makes it perfect for Victorian, Georgian or other period architecture but adaptable to fit modern properties also.

A lantern conservatory is ideal for bigger properties, however it can be downsized and still have a stunning effect.

Walls can vary more with lantern conservatories – some homeowners opt for a fully glazed wall to ceiling (including the roof) whilst others choose to have a small dwarf wall running around the bottom of the structure.

You could also opt for extra brickwork with full walls or column style walls.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use underfloor heating in my conservatory?

Yes, underfloor heating is a popular choice for heating conservatories here in the UK. If you do decide to opt for underfloor heating, you should let your builder know early on as it will often need to be integrated during the construction process.

How can I get more privacy in my conservatory?

If you are concerned about how open a conservatory can seem there are options to provide more privacy. Blinds are a popular choice and can be made to match the dimensions of your conservatory. Alternatively you could have more brickwork in your build as opposed to going for a fully glazed conservatory with glass from top to bottom.
