What is an orangery?

The term ‘orangery’ originated from Italy and grew in popularity in the 17th century – fast forward to today and orangeries can enhance any home with an elegant, classic look and provide a versatile new living space.

Similar to a conservatory, an orangery is a glazed extension that can be enjoyed all year round.

What are the main differences between a conservatory and an orangery?

Where orangeries differ from the traditional conservatory design, however, is that our LivinRoom orangeries and RealROOF orangeries incorporate proportionally more solid structure and lantern-style roofing, making a luxurious and elegant extension to your home.

The increased heat retention, solidity, and the opportunity to decorate the walls all make the orangery closer to an additional room than a conservatory – but this is not to say it does not connect the home with the outside, much as a conservatory does. The large lantern style roofs and glazed wall sections let in good amounts of light and provide lovely views of the surrounding greenery and sky – day or night.

Orangeries are also commonly fitted with large sliders or bifolds, which aid ventilation and help promote a fresh and natural atmosphere. So many families want to enhance their home with new space, whether it be through installing a large orangery or small orangery – there’s a suit available to match the aesthetics of your home.

Not only do you gain privacy from neighbours, but a garden orangery can also be used to entertain guests at any time of day thanks to its thermal performance. Efficient glazing lets in as much natural light as possible, and still retains heat when the temperature drops, especially when combined with a well-insulated uPVC, aluminium, or timber frame.

Gone are the worries that you won’t have enough space for your growing family, or for when friends visit – a bespoke orangery provides a space pleasant in any weather, at any time, and for any occasion.

Do I need planning permission for an orangery?

This is a question that we get asked a lot by our customers. Provided your orangery extension does not exceed these general guidelines, they should always be considered a permitted development right.

We have already helped thousands of people across the South create their dream orangery. Make sure that you don’t miss out and get in touch with us today.
