The Best Choice for Conservatories Poole Has to Offer

Conservatories: more than just an addition to your home, they’re a gateway to a new lifestyle. Imagine a space where light dances through glass, creating a serene haven for relaxation and entertainment. But where do you begin?

From the elegance of Victorian styles to the sleek lines of modern designs, choosing the right conservatory can be a journey of discovery. And let’s not forget the ambience lighting creates. Intrigued? Let’s dive deeper into how to select your perfect conservatory sanctuary.

Available Styles for Our Customers’ Conservatories

Before you proceed, let’s start by mentioning that conservatories come in different styles. Each has its pros and cons, and each will better suit a different style of property. These styles include:

  • Victorian
  • Edwardian
  • Modern

Victorian and Edwardian

Choosing the perfect conservatory can be a delightful puzzle for any homeowner. Whether you lean towards a three or five bay front, drawing inspiration from geometric shapes like octagons or duo decagons, the design possibilities are vast. While a five bay conservatory might limit the placement of French doors due to its angles, the adaptability in bay lengths and roof pitches (ideally 26º for structural integrity) allows for a personalised touch.

Many opt for a decorative ridge cresting, a nod to historical traditions believed to ward off evil spirits. Whether you prefer the spacious feel of an Edwardian design, or the classic charm of a Victorian conservatory, careful planning and consideration of your desired floor area are key.

Plus, the practical furniture layout using graft paper sketches, will ensure your conservatory is not just an extension of your home but a transformation of your living space into a bright, airy haven.


The term ‘lean-to’ has evolved significantly in the realm of conservatories, moving away from its greenhouse origins to embrace modern, sophisticated designs. Today’s homeowners, particularly in Poole, lean towards contemporary conservatory installations, valuing the enhanced square footage and cost-effectiveness they offer.

Moreover, there’s a growing consensus that traditional Victorian or Edwardian styles may not always complement the architectural integrity of modern homes. This shift has led to an increased demand for glazed extensions.

And there’s a focus on integrating patio doors, composite doors, and advanced glazing techniques to ensure a seamless blend with existing structures, aligning with the aesthetic and practical preferences of the discerning homeowner.

Other Styles (Balcony, Free Standing, etc.)

Adding a conservatory to your balcony creates a serene outdoor oasis. With flexible designs, it fits seamlessly indoors or outdoors, optimising space without obstruction. You have complete design control, whether for a garden office, home gym, cinema, or extra guest space. Cost-effective options include upgrading a basic shed or timber summer house with insulation.

Beware of flimsy alternatives. Opt for a traditional structure with cavity walls and a tiled roof or a ski chalet-inspired design. Glazed conservatory sunrooms or free-standing orangeries offer year-round garden enjoyment. With over four million people working from home, a garden office provides a peaceful retreat.

Plan your budget, floor area, and natural light. Secure foundations are vital. Choose from our range of conservatories, patio doors, and more for elegant and functional extensions. Trust David Fennings for design and installation excellence in Poole.

Choosing the Right Conservatory for Your Home

Choosing the right conservatory for your Poole home is a delightful journey that begins with your unique vision. Consider the style that complements your property, whether it’s the timeless charm of Victorian conservatories, the sleek modernity of glazed extensions, or the versatility of a front extension.

Glazing options, from roofs to doors, offer different levels of light and insulation. As a Poole homeowner, you may appreciate our extensive range, including composite doors and patio doors. Our installation expertise ensures a seamless transition. At David Fennings, we’re here to offer recommendations and a range of options, making your dream conservatory a reality.

Understanding Planning Permissions and Regulations

Planning permissions and regulations play a crucial role in the construction of conservatories, ensuring that they meet legal standards and aesthetic requirements. When considering the installation of conservatories, it’s essential to keep in mind the impact on your property.

While conservatories, particularly those with glass roofs and glazing, offer stunning views and a sense of space, they may require approval from local authorities. Patio doors and front doors, integral to conservatory design, must meet building regulations for safety and energy efficiency.

Compliance with regulations, such as those governing glazing and door installation, is paramount. Engaging experts for installation is recommended to ensure adherence to these rules, creating a beautiful and legally sound extension to your home.

Maintenance and Care for Longevity

Ensuring the longevity of your conservatory is vital to protect your investment. Regular maintenance is the key. Begin with the essentials: examine the doors, whether they’re elegant patio doors or traditional front doors. Proper door installation is crucial to prevent drafts and ensure security.

Check the glazing, from the windows to the roofs, for any signs of wear or damage. Promptly replace any glass or tiles that show wear and tear. Routine inspections, along with professional installation when needed, are recommended for an enduring, beautiful conservatory. Trust us for expert recommendations to keep your conservatory in prime condition.

Conservatory Lighting

Our comprehensive lighting service caters not only to new conservatory owners but also to those seeking to revamp their garden sunrooms. While a conservatory bathed in daylight is a joy, the necessity for lighting becomes evident during gloomy days and early evenings. Each conservatory’s lighting needs vary by season, prompting thoughtful positioning of wall lights, table lamps, and central fixtures.

Dimmer switches are a popular choice, allowing for both subdued and atmospheric lighting. Exterior lighting options, such as spotlights on ponds and floodlights on lawns, enhance the overall experience. Discover the perfect lighting solution to illuminate your conservatory and its surroundings.
