The Edwardian conservatory, also known as the Georgian, is similar in style to the Victorian – the main difference being that it’s square or rectangular in footprint. This style embodies airiness and light, offering more subtle lines than the elaborate Victorian conservatory. Featuring a square or rectangular shape, the Edwardian is the ideal shape for furnishing internally, leaving you with no wasted space. Typically, an Edwardian style conservatory has a high, sloping roof, providing a marvellous vaulted look and ensuring a light, bright and inspiring room.
Originally built on homes from the 18th and early 19th centuries, the style has been replicated on many neo-Georgian properties since.Edwardian conservatories were originally the preserve of people with significant style, standing and financial status, widely built on stately homes. Highly exclusive, Edwardian conservatories came before the Victorian style became popular. Edwardian conservatory style borrows features from Greek and Roman architecture as many ruins were discovered during the period and the design was quickly copied at the time. Its imposing style and finishing touches allow you to maximise your floor area and living space while maintaining character and traditional appeal.
