On average, how much does a conservatory cost?
The average cost of a conservatory will be heavily influenced by the type of conservatory design you choose, the materials you build it out of, and the size of the room itself. So you should have a basic idea of the type of conservatory that you prefer to install to begin with.

Which is the cheapest material to use to build a conservatory?
- Softwood conservatories – low priced, but very high ongoing maintenance requirements.
- Hardwood conservatories – higher prices, long life span but need to be maintained regularly.
- Aluminium conservatories – higher prices, long life span, great designs, easy to look after.
- UPVC – low priced, great design range and very easy to look after.
What are the most popular conservatory designs to choose from?
In our opinion, this is how we see the “ranking” for most popular conservatory designs to choose from.
- Lean to (classic & contemporary)
- Edwardian & Georgian
- Gable, Pavilion & Loggia
- P, L, B & T-shaped
The lean-to conservatory is certainly one of the more popular designs, due to its simple rectangular structure and single sided, sloped roof. A lean-to conservatory can fit almost anywhere.
Variations on the Lean to design include those such as the Gull-wing, Regency, Mediterranean and T-shaped.
The average price for a cheap lean-to conservatory can be one of the lowest.
Victorian conservatories are also a favourite, with their facetted sides and vaulted, almost circular ornate roofing.
When we get to Edwardian, Georgian or Gable, Pavilion, Loggia or “shaped” conservatories, we are usually looking at a medium to large size home extension and so the average prices for these will be higher.
