The classic, clean-lines of the Edwardian (Georgian) conservatory offers an ideal way to economically maximise the space in your home.
Whether you want a dining area, a playroom, an office or perhaps just a quiet room to relax in, the Edwardian’s practical square-fronted design allows you to maximise your enjoyment and usage of the extra space created.
All our conservatories are built with energy-efficiency in mind using the very latest uPVC and glazing technologies.
Unlike windows where keeping heat in is usually the priority, with conservatories, solar gain is normally undesirable so we usually fit units that stop heat passing in either direction. The sun’s heat stays out in summer while precious indoor heat stays in during winter.
Building work of any kind can be a daunting process. Custom Glaze is the hassle-free way to achieve the conservatory you want. We will manage your project and keep you informed at every stage, providing a seamless process from your original enquiry, through to final installation and certification.
How much does a conservatory cost?
Conservatory prices can vary depending on a wide range of factors including size, style and finishes. Also deciding whether to have Glass, Dwarf, Full Height or a mixture for the conservatory walls will either make the conservatory price go up or down. We always recommend you visit our Milton Keynes showroom to see our conservatory examples and estimates, however we can give you a guide indication of cost, just click on the “Get an Online Quote” tab below.
Do I need planning permission?
Generally conservatories are seen as a permitted development by Building Regulations in most cases, however it does depend on what type of conservatory you want and the type house it will be added to. There is many reasons why you may need it (Listed Property / Conservation Area), if you do require planning permission, we’ll handle it all on your behalf for you.
You do not need planning permission if you meet the following requirements:
- The construction does not cover more than 50% of the size of the existing house
- It does not include any balconies, verandas or raised platforms
- It won’t be any higher than the highest part of the existing roof
- It won’t be more than 4m high
- It does not obstruct a public road
- No more than half the area of land around the original house would be covered by additions or other buildings
Single-storey rear extensions do not extend beyond the rear wall of the original house by more than 3m if an attached house, or by 4m if a detached house

Can you install a conservatory to a Bungalow?
Yes, a low pitch roof can be supplied to overcome the height restriction problem, and depending on which conservatory style you choose, a hipped-back roof with a box gutter can be added to secure a Victorian or Edwardian conservatory style.
