Orangeries are a more substantial type of home extension than a conservatory. They feature substantial brick frames with brick pillars at the corners and are normally attached to the existing property with a more substantial opening, in contrast to conservatories which often use a pre-existing external door. Orangeries also often use bifold doors that open out into the garden area, while conservatories normally use patio or French doors. Orangeries also generally have a roof which is flat at the edges and has a lantern window in the centre. Orangeries can create various internal spaces, but are often used as beautiful and practical settings for dining rooms or living areas.
Orangeries are usually higher in price than equivalent conservatories, due to the increased labour involved in their construction, and the additional expense that is required for the building materials used. They also tend to require planning permission as they are regarded as an extension to the current house. Orangeries are both stylish and practical, and create spaces which feel natural and sympathetic to the pre-existing internal space of the property. Orangeries are available with solid wood, UPVC or aluminium window frames, and in a variety of styles, for example in T-shape or atrium designs. The standard of the glazing for the roof and windows is essential, and selecting a style with solar UV protection will guarantee that the temperature of your orangery remains constant even during the warm summer.
