Edwardian (or Georgian) conservatories are quite similar in style to the Victorian, and also feature an apexed roof. However the main difference is that Edwardian conservatories are square or rectangular on plan, so they have a flat front (compared to the Victorian angle front). When it comes to choosing the right Summit conservatory, there are so many decisions to make and questions to ask.
Victorian conservatories are the most popular styles of conservatory in England, Victorian style complements most types of property. Victorian conservatories are especially popular on all homes, which contains some of the finest Victorian architecture in the country.

P shaped conservatories are so called because they have a P shaped plan with an apexed roof. P shaped conservatories are sometimes called Combination conservatories due to the fact that they allow you to combine two different styles of conservatory, such as an Edwardian and a Lean To. It is also possible to adapt an existing style into different basic layouts, including a T-shape or a B-shape.
While some may look similar to a conservatory, there are some very distinct differences. Orangeries are more akin to extensions than conservatories. They generally do not have a door dividing the extension to the main part of the house. You may have a door, perhaps a high quality bi-fold door, but the general idea is that part of you house is seamlessly extended into this new glass building with an atrium style roof.
