Construction materials - Aluminium, PVCu (often called plastic or PVC) or timber (hardwood). Each of these have their advantages. Whilst PVCu offers the cheapest option, aluminium offers strength and durability and timber (hardwood) conservatories give a more natural and traditional look but require more maintenance. Roofs can be glass or non glass roof depending on accepted rain noise level and views through roof.
Location - In full sun could be too hot. In full shade could be too cold. A downward view could beg for low retaining wall. With an uphill view could beg for a higher roof line (so roof line does not interfere too much with the view)
