How a roof conversion can elevate your conservatory’s style

Promo code: COOL20







Conservatories used to be all about glass, from the walls to the doors to the ceiling… but times have changed. Thanks to advancements in roofing technology, many people are now choosing to swap their glass roofs for modern alternatives. 

Tiled and flat roofs are much more energy efficient than older models, keeping your energy bills down and your home comfortable year-round - no more scorching summers or freezing winters! But the benefits aren’t just practical. With a variety of colours, styles, and designs to choose from, a roof conversion is an excellent way to breathe new life into your conservatory’s style, too. 

At Ecozenic, our mission is to help you maximise the potential of your conservatory, no matter how you plan to use it. In the guide below, we explore how a roof conversion can completely transform the design of your conservatory. 


How can a roof conversion revamp your conservatory’s exterior? 

There are two main types of roof conversion: pitched tiled roofs and flat roofs with lanterns. Pitched roofs are much like your house’s main roof, albeit on a smaller scale, while flat roofs stay completely horizontal with the exception of a raised lantern in the middle. Here’s how each type can transform your conservatory's design: 


Pitched tiled roof 

Unlike glass roofs, which tend to be more limited in customisation, tiled roofs open up a world of design possibilities. You can choose the colours, textures, and overall look, letting you create a stylish extension that blends with your existing house. 

The tiled roofs installed by Ecozenic, for example, come in two variants: ExtraLight and TapcoSlate. ExtraLight tiles mimic the timeless beauty of classic, low-profile shingles, while TapcoSlate tiles emulate the rich texture and charm of natural slate. Both options are lighter and more resilient than their natural counterparts, and both come in a palette of earthy hues - everything from warm ember to a deep charcoal black. Whatever look you’re hoping to achieve, they can make it a reality. 

Worried about sacrificing sunlight for style? Our SkyVista skylights are the perfect solution. Their solar-controlled glazing lets in plenty of sunlight while keeping your space comfortable, while their sleek, slimline designs enhance your roof’s design even further. 

Flat roof with lantern 

Flat roofs with lanterns bring the best of both worlds. You get the flood of natural light you crave from a glass roof, but with the added bonus of insulation you'd expect from a solid one. This winning combination applies to design as well: lanterns offer the classic charm of a glazed roof, but with greater flexibility for a customised look. The result? A stylishly modern spin on a timeless design. 

Ecozenic’s glass lanterns come in ten different styles, from classic square pyramids to sleek, modern rectangles stretching the entire length of your space. The glass itself also comes in a range of colours, including calming blues, verdant greens, and classic neutrals, allowing you to recreate any vision you have in mind. 

What about your conservatory’s interior? 

One of the biggest advantages of a tiled or flat conservatory roof is the design freedom it offers for the interior. Instead of being limited by fixed glass panels, you'll have solid walls and a ceiling similar to the main rooms in your home. This blank canvas allows you to unleash your creativity - paint the walls in colours that complement or contrast the rest of your home, hang artwork or suspended plants, install recessed lighting, or decorate in any other way you can think of. It’s all up to you! 

If you choose a flat roof with a lantern, you can even incorporate an integrated LED channel around the perimeter. It’ll bathe your conservatory in a warm, inviting glow after dark, creating a cosy ambiance perfect for entertaining guests.
