Some may ask what is a conservatory or what is the difference between a conservatory and a sunroom? Conservatories and sunrooms are nearly similar and even how they are used. The Major difference between a sunroom and a conservatory is that a conservatory addition to your home has a glass roof. 


Conservatories can be custom-built to your specific specifications. Conservatoires are usually attached to a house but they can also be free-standing glass-walled buildings like you would see in a park or botanical garden. 


A conservatory is a warm, inviting space that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as entertaining guests or studying plants. Conservatories are often found in homes and offices and can provide needed humidity and warmth in the colder months. Conservatories can also be decorated to match the style of the home or office, making them a stylish addition to any property.
