Adding a conservatory to your home not only adds value to your property, but also is a relatively low cost and easy way to extend your living space. There are so many choices available from a contemporary look to a classic traditional style, your conservatory can be tailored to meet your own needs.
To help you get the most from your new conservatory we’ll give you all the guidance you require, and help you choose the ideal location that will maximise your enjoyment of your new living space.
Our conservatories are available in a wide variety of style and colour options to suit every home. With a wide range of glass styles and extras to consider, such as handles, locks, blinds and ventilation, you can rely on us to offer you advice and practical suggestions, leaving you to imagine the possibilities that a new living space can provide.
The Carlton range uses the Konnect framing system, for quick and easy construction of your frames.
Improved thermal efficiency means you can now use your conservatory all year round. Keeping cool in the summer months and warm in the winter with improved thermal glass saving you money on energy bills.
There’s no ‘right’ decision, just think about how you want to use the internal space, what size is suitable, and what will look the best with your style of home.
or create your own!
Create something more tailored to your needs by combining the different shapes. Combine an edwardian and victorian to create a ‘P’ or ‘b’ shape, or combine two different size edwardians into an ‘L’ shape.
The additional space afforded with these combinations allow maximum uses â€“ perhaps for dining and relaxing.
No longer does your conservatory need to be white.
Ensure your conservatory blends in beautifully with your home and its surroundings, and follows any colour restrictions imposed for listed buildings or conservation areas.
Or simply give yourself the satisfaction of being different.
The Carlton range is available in the following range
- Woodgrain White
- Anthracite Grey
- Chartwell Green
- Black brown
- Irish Oak
- Golden Oak
Please enquire with your chosen supplier to discuss exact specifications available.
With so much attention given to choosing size, colour and style of conservatory, roof glazing options can be overlooked.
The Carlton range is fitted with polycarbonate in the roof, and clear glass in the frames, as standard, but they are not your only choice. As well as our range of different polycarbonate options, you could choose glass for your roof, or even have the Celsius high performance conservatory glass range installed throughout, for maximum energy efficiency.
Add a personal touch to your conservatory by adding decorative glass to the top light section of your frames.
Polycarbonate is available in options to suit most needs. Itâ€™s stable at a range of temperatures, and can incorporate a Solar Control option to protect from heat build-up and loss.
It’s important to consider both the entrance and exit from your conservatory – both from inside the house and from your garden, so we’ve made the Carlton range available with patio and bi-fold options.
Traditional french or double-doors require space to open into, and can be awkward to prop open during everyday use. Choosing patio or bi-folding doors can make a real difference, allowing you to fully open up your conservatory and appreciate an uninterrupted view.
A simple but elegant solution, patio doors take up minimal space, and grant easy access to the outside.
They are available with sliding and fixed leaf configurations.
Perhaps the ultimate conservatory upgrade is the addition of bi-folding doors. You could choose to open up the entire side of your conservatory, bringing the outside in more than ever before.
Weâ€™ve look at glass to let the light in, doors to let people in, so how about air! Ventilation is easily overlooked, but in the summer months ensuring you have considered air flow will make for a much more enjoyable environment.
The number of opening vents and windows in your conservatory is very much a personal choice, some people prefer to keep costs down by having a minimal amount of windows, where others prefer the flexibility of a window in every panel.
Start by talking to your supplier about their recommended number of windows for your chosen conservatory size and position.
Roof vents are the ideal solution to control the air flow in your conservatory.
Available manually operated or electrically controlled (with optional rain sensor for optimum protection), they are designed to fit seamlessly into your roof.
Top openers & tilt ‘n’ turn windows
For maximum control over the air flow in your conservatory, add opening windows.
You could choose to have small opening windows in the top of some (or all) of your panels, or have our tilt ‘n’ turn windows in the main area, which allow you to open each window in different directions.
Planning Permission is the decision as to whether or not you can build a particular structure in a particular place.
Current legislation on “permitted development” to properties means that provided you meet certain criteria, there may be no need to submit a specific planning permission request. You should visit www.planningportal.gov.uk to confirm what criteria will apply to you.
Often confused with Planning Permission, but actually a separate consideration, this is a set of standards that have to be followed in the building of a structure.
England, Scotland & Wales each have their own regulations, and there may be additional local by-laws that you need to be aware of.
www.planningportal.gov.uk is a good place to find out the details you need to know.
If your build requires a Building Regulations Application you will need to contact your local authority before you proceed.
Do look down!
Donâ€™t forget about the base of your conservatory.
Are there are manholes or other access points that will be covered? Do important pipes or cables run underneath the location?
Consider what foundation building work will be required, or consider alternative bases.
When the time comes to build your conservatory, the Carlton Range is designed to make life easy. By using the Konnect Framing System weâ€™ve ensured youâ€™ll be able to fit your conservatory side frames quickly and efficiently.
The Konnect system is made up several unique components, specifically designed for the Carlton Range, that allow you to click, slide and lock all your panels in place with just a single allen key!
- Sills are cut to size, and are ready for the Sill Support Blocks.
- Sill Support Blocks on the panels locate into the sill, and click into position.
- Panels engage into Sill and slide into position.
- Aluminium Connectors slide down between Panels holding them together.
- Rotating the 1/4 turn Buttons with an allen key secures the Panels and ensures they are the correct distance apart.
- Once locked into position the Buttons are used to locate the cover strip, for a clean finish.
Youâ€™ve created your dream conservatory. Relax and enjoy the benefits of your new space for years to come!
Thanks to its impressive versatility and its ability to complement most types of property, the Victorian conservatory is one of the most frequently seen styles of conservatory. It can be distinguished by its steeply pitched roof and its use of ornate detailing along the roof’s centre apex (called the ridge).
Typically, Victorian conservatories have 3 or 5 panel facets.
The Georgian or Edwardian conservatory is one of the more traditional style, along with the Victorian.
The main difference is that they are flat fronted whereas the Victorian has an angular front. Representing a perfect marriage of form and function, they also tend to be more understated – making them the ideal choice if you do not wish to detract from the visual impact of the main property. They are a good choice for more contemporary homes.
Lean-to conservatories are usually rectangular with a roof that leans on to the main property (hence their name). They have clean, simple lines giving them a modern, uncomplicated look and making them suitable for a wide range of house styles. In particular, they are the ideal choice for bungalows or other homes where the roof has low eaves. Lean-to conservatories are also known as sunrooms, mediterranean or studio rooms.
Combination and P-shaped conservatories are everything their titles suggest.
They offer you more space and greater levels of flexibility by combining two styles – such as the Georgian and the Lean-to – or by adapting an existing style so that it can be used in the shape of a ‘P’. Should you find that a P-Shape or Combination still does not provide the unique design solution you are looking for, K2 will work with your installer to create a totally bespoke conservatory tailored to your own specific needs.
The Pavilion, also known as the Gable End Conservatory, this is a real classic design and can suite both contemporary and older style properties. The full glass frontage allows light to flood into the room creating a bright and airy space.
The Capella is a unique modular system that is a simple yet effective add-on to a standard conservatory. The options available include a high fronted feature aluminium gutter that conceals the end of the glazing bar, and an internal platerboarded soffit ideal for downlighters or speakers. An easy entry into the orangery market, designed to fit the K2 roof.
