Did you know the average British house size and number of bedrooms is at an all-time low? Shrinking to 20% smaller than 1970s levels, UK homes built since 2010 offer an average of just 67.8 square metres of living space. Covering a slightly larger area than both decks of a double-decker bus, it’s hardly surprising that the interest in small conservatories in Wolverhampton is at an all-time high.

Providing the perfect alternative to moving to a new house, a conservatory can have a big impact even in the smallest of spaces. So, to inspire you, we’ve come up with four ideas for a small conservatory to maximise the space in your home and get the best out of it for many enjoyable decades to come.

4 small conservatory ideas for homes in Wolverhampton

Small lean to conservatory

1. Small lean to conservatory ideas

Lean-to conservatories work out as the most cost-effective conservatory style. Sloping and ‘leaning’ along the longest wall of the property, the way lean-to conservatories can accommodate low roof pitches of just 2.5° – 45° makes them ideal for building a small conservatory. No matter whether your improvement plans are for a classic or contemporary-styled home, sleek sliding patio doors are perfect for small lean-to’s. Welcoming swathes of natural light inside with their large floor-to-ceiling glazed panels, from modest children’s playrooms to bijou dining rooms, the possibilities are endless with a small lean-to conservatory.


2. A fabulous family room

Small Victorian conservatory

Notably increasing space and light where it’s needed most, small Victorian and Edwardian conservatories make fantastic family rooms. Small Victorian conservatories are often chosen to add curvaceous character to traditionally styled homes, whereas the rectangular floorplan of small Edwardian conservatories tends to suit more modern small conservatory stylings. Maximise the space further with sophisticated French doors that open outward.

3. A small home office

Although the pandemic phase of COVID is almost over, the need for a good work-life balance remains. With a quarter of UK workers now hybrid working, small conservatories make superb home offices for a variety of reasons. Quiet, beautifully lit, and establishing better boundaries between home and work life, the increased light and space are sure to heighten overall productivity whilst helping you to completely switch off at the end of a hard day’s work.

4. A pint-sized home gym

In the last 3 months before June 2022, Google searches for “home gym” increased by 22%. So, if you like the idea of saving money on gym membership fees, you’re not alone! Light, airy and striking, for a small glazed home gym you’ll need to consider solar control conservatory roof glass to effectively regulate the temperature inside. Or if you envision more modern stylings for your new home gym, a lightweight tiled conservatory roof will help you create the perfect living temperature inside that seamlessly blends with the rest of your home.
