Lantern Conservatories - Benefits & Prices
The lantern conservatory is considered one of the most elegant designs thanks to its impressive roof shape. The style works brilliantly for a large conservatory, which is ideal for anything from housing a swimming pool to creating an additional living space.
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.
