The extremely versatile L-shaped conservatory is design to fit around a corner of a building and like its brother, the P-shaped conservatory, it's design allows you to link to parts of the house together. The L-shape of the conservatory means that it hugs the wall of the house instead of protruding out from it. This creates a very large space which doesn't take up much of the garden area. This is very useful if you have a small garden with a bit of an empty space around the corner of the house.
As with the other shaped conservatories, this design requires the combination of two different styles. Although it is not compulsory to use the same style, it's more often than not used to give the conservatory a symmetrical look. The style chosen should suit the needs of the owner and look good with the design of the house. As long as the rear of the house is flat instead of shaped, it can accommodate the L-shaped conservatory.
The size of the conservatory is directly proportional to the size of the property. In case there is a restriction on the height of the conservatory, then you will have to combine hipped back conservatories like a gable end or an Edwardian conservatory.
If you want separate projections from the house walls both sides of the corner around which you are building, then you will have to think about adding valleys and hip angles. In this situation, you will need to discuss with a professional to overcome the technicalities.
If you don't need to take the pitch of the roof in to account, and if the spur projection on both the sides is the same, a lean-to based L-shaped conservatory will be a favoured option. The two conservatories will be joined together at the hip at the corner junction. This will still leave you will the opportunity to add more hips at the end of each of the structures, instead of shaped frames to join the roof and the frames.
The extremely versatile shape of the conservatory is perfect for a variety of housed and structures. This means that there are a myriad of possibilities if you are thinking about a way to use the space. The shape also allows for the maximum usage of the space around the house without too much intrusion into the garden space.
The L-shaped conservatory also has a very practical floor plan since it allows entrance from the living room inside the house and the kitchen to be accessed from the conservatory. It also allows a separate layout of living and dining areas to be created, in the process, increasing the flow of the ground floor of the property. You could even choose to link the back door and the side door with the conservatory, though this would make the conservatory the only way to access the garden.
Whatever style or design you choose, L-shaped conservatories are guaranteed to look stunning.
