Can you put a conservatory in a small garden?

Bifold Door Conservatory

If your garden is on the smaller size, you may assume that you do not have the room for a conservatory. In many cases, a conservatory can fit into any size garden and see both your home and garden enjoy a vibrant transformation. Filling your home with light is a top tip for giving the illusion of more space, making a conservatory ideal to add space to your home while not impeding on your outdoor space.

Popular conservatory styles for small gardens

The lean-to conservatory style is a popular choice for homeowners looking for a compact yet practical glazed extension to their home. With a sloped roof which is attached to the wall of your house, they are also ideal for bungalows and houses with low ceilings. The pitched roof of a regency style conservatory gives the illusion of more space so would be perfect for smaller gardens and will still fill your home with light. Conservatories can be made to fit any garden shape so if your outside space is a bit more unusual, a combination conservatory can combine the features of different conservatory styles to create a truly bespoke space.

The beauty of a conservatory is its abundant use of glazing – you can bring your garden inside and make your outside and inside living spaces merge. With the addition of modern-looking bifolding doors, your conservatory will be opened up and, when the weather allows you can easily move outside. These stylish doors fully open up and are ideal if you plan to use your conservatory as a dining room or lounge. Your whole home will feel expanded when the doors are open – perfect for entertaining in the balmy summer evenings.
