Wooden Victorian conservatories are the most fun kind of conservatries because Victorian architecture is really the most fun kind of architecture. It was as if a generation of people looked at the history of architecture and the current trend toward yet another classic revival and just said no. Although coined by the post modernists, I can just imagine the Victorians looking at all the Palladian style structures being built and also saying, “Less is not more. Less is a bore.” They wanted to build structures that better incorporated their modern needs and attitudes. That and the lifting of the glass tax helped swell the demand for intricate window frames, large bay windows and heavily ornamented turrets.

Building a wooden Victorian conservatory gives you the chance to recreate the era of architecture that is rumored to be Queen Elizabeth’s favorite. It gives you a chance to try out steep gabled roofs with iron fleur-de-lis running along the ridgeline, decorative glass, elaborate color schemes, ornate embellishments, and windows, windows, windows! Wooden Victorian conservatories can be painted in all those cheerful Victorian colors, and filled with the curved wrought iron furniture popular in conservatories during the era. Add a few tasseled velvet pillows and exotic plants and slip back into a genteel past.
