Lean-To Mediterranean Conservatories

The Lean-To conservatory is the simplest of conservatories in terms of design and its clean lines help it maintain a contemporary look which still makes it a popular choice of conservatory style today.

The Style

The Lean-to conservatory, or Mediterranean conservatory, is the simplest style of conservatory, with clean lines that give it a contemporary look and make them a popular conservatory for modern houses. This conservatory style will be ideal for you if you prefer the simple, understated lines of a Mediterranean sunroom.

Whether your lean-to conservatory is traditional or contemporary, the style is perfect for properties that have restricted space under the eaves, like a bungalow, or have an area that's too awkward to accommodate a conservatory. This is because the pitch of the roof on lean-to conservatories can vary – so a shallow pitch can fit under a low bungalow roof and a steeper one would be ideal for a terraced house.

Lean-to conservatories can also be called sunrooms or garden rooms, and they bring a flavour of the Mediterranean into your home, trapping the winter sunlight and converting it into heat through the glass. The simple shape of the lean-to conservatory gives you the maximum space in a highly economical style.

A lean-to conservatory can also improve the energy balance of your house, provide shelter and catch the winter sun. You can use your conservatory as a greenhouse, a playroom, a dining room, lounge or kitchen. And now, with great features like floor heating and double-glazing available for your Mediterranean conservatory, you can have a new living area room for a fraction of the usual price.
