Not to be mistaken for lantern roofs, the Lantern Conservatory Style was originally known as an Orangery, this style of conservatory can make a fantastic statement of elegance and grandeur.
Lantern conservatories feature a two-tier roof, separated by a row of windows which makes it ideal for period style properties, such as Victorian or Edwardian, where a relatively plain conservatory would not match the grandeur of the existing building.
The Lantern Conservatory style is often chosen to house swimming pools or orangeries. Whether they come in brick and stone or classic glass style, they never fail to conjure up the glories of opulent living from an altogether different age.
With a Lantern Conservatory the overall impression is of height. A Lantern conservatory feels spacious and with the addition of the second tier of windows above the main roof, it offers an uninterrupted view of the sky while letting in additional light
When ordering your lantern conservatory, you might consider adding stained glass or Georgian bars to the windows, this could enhance the Victorian or Edwardian period effect of your new conservatory.
You can also choose to add brickwork - perhaps a three-quarter or full-height wall on one side to tie the conservatory in even more with your property. Whatever you choose, gable-front conservatories are a grand and majestic option for any home of any size and they will never fail to impress your friends.
