Orangeries are a far more substantial type of home extension than a conservatory. They have large brick frames with brick pillars at the corners and tend to be accessed from the existing property via a more substantial opening, as opposed to conservatories which often make use of an existing external door. Orangeries also generally feature bifold doors that open into the garden space, where conservatories tend to 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 stunning and useful settings for dining rooms or living areas.
Orangeries are typically higher in price than comparable conservatories, due to the increased labour that is required for construction, and the higher cost that is needed for the building materials they make use of. In addition, they usually need planning permission because they are considered to be an extension to the current building. Orangeries are both stylish and functional, and create rooms which feel natural and sympathetic to the pre-existing internal space of the home. Orangeries are available with wood, UPVC or aluminium window frames, and in a wide range of styles, for example in T-shape or atrium designs. The quality of the glazing for the roof and windows is essential, and choosing a style with solar UV protection will guarantee that the temperature of your orangery remains regular even during the warm summer months.
