Orangeries are a more substantial type of home extension than a conservatory. They feature large brick frames with brick pillars at the corners and tend to be accessed from the existing property using a bigger opening, in contrast to conservatories which often utilise an existing external door. Orangeries also generally feature bifold doors to open into the garden area, while conservatories normally use patio or French doors. Orangeries also generally feature a roof which is flat at the edges and has a lantern window in the centre. Orangeries can create a range of internal rooms, but tend to be used as beautiful and functional settings for dining rooms or living areas.
Orangeries are usually more expensive than comparable conservatories, due to the increased labour involved in their construction, and the additional cost that goes into the materials used. They also usually need planning permission as they are considered to be an extension to the current building. Orangeries are both stylish and useful, and create spaces which feel natural and sympathetic to the existing internal space of the house. Orangeries are available with wooden, UPVC or aluminium window frames, and in an array of styles, for example in T-shape or atrium designs. The quality of the glazing for the roof and windows is very important, and choosing a style with solar UV protection will ensure that the temperature of your orangery remains consistent even through the warm summer months.
