Orangeries are one of the most elegant and unique types of conservatory design, and evoke glamour and tradition. On first glance, these conservatories may seem similar in style to Victorian or Edwardian conservatories, especially in how they maximise interior space and have a rectangular floor plan. However, orangeries have a classic and stylish design that lets natural light flood into the internal space – ideal for sitting out and viewing your garden.
Orangeries were originally used by the rich to grow fruits such as oranges and lemons, and became extremely popular during the 17th and 19th centuries. They could be found at manor houses and elegant palaces, and home-owners would grow citrus fruit during the cold winter months
Today, orangeries still evoke connotations of tradition, wealth, and splendour, and are available in a wide range of different materials and designs. They come with an internal soffit which can be used to incorporate down-lighting into the conservatory for a more modern feel and to transform the look of the interior space. The orangery is the perfect place to entertain guests at night and during the day, especially if you want to escape to somewhere away from the main property.
You will be able to customise your orangery based on design elements and a style that best matches your personality. We will be able to source the original brickwork from your main property to match the brickwork we use to design your new conservatory. This will help to create a ‘uniform’ look throughout the entire house, and make it seem as if your orangery has always been a vital part of your home.
You will be able to choose from various materials and finishes when selecting your orangery, including hardwood, PVC-U and aluminium. You can choose a material to match the existing door and window framework in your property.There are also a number of different window glazing and roof options to make your orangery look more attractive. These include self-cleaning glass which can help to insulate your orangery more effectively, and allow plenty of natural light to illuminate the internal space. Other finishes include cladding, PVC-U capping, aluminium roof rafters and external perimeter flat roofing.
