Orangeries are a more substantial type of home extension than a conservatory. They have large brick frames with brick pillars at the corners and are generally accessed from the existing property using a larger opening, in contrast to conservatories which often use an existing exterior door. Orangeries also often feature bifold doors to open into the garden space, where conservatories usually use patio or French doors. Orangeries also generally feature a roof which is flat at the edges and has a lantern window in the middle. Orangeries can create many different internal spaces, but tend to be used as stylish and functional settings for dining rooms or living areas.
Orangeries are typically more expensive than comparable conservatories, as a result of the increased labour involved in their construction, and the greater cost that is needed for the materials they make use of. They also are likely to require planning permission because they are considered to be an extension to the pre-existing home. Orangeries are both stylish and efficient, and create spaces which feel natural and sympathetic to the existing internal space of the house. Orangeries are available with wood, UPVC or aluminium window frames, and in numerous styles, for example in T-shape or atrium designs. The quality of the glazing for the roof and windows is vital, and selecting a style with solar UV protection will ensure that the temperature of your orangery remains consistent even during the warm summer months.
