UK homeowners are still generally favouring improving their existing property over moving to pastures new.
This has seen a huge rise in the number of home extensions sold, namely conservatories and orangeries.
Orangeries appeal to those wanting an extension with less framework than a conventional UPVC conservatory and more brickwork.
The elegant appearance of an orangery is just one of several benefits to be had from orangery ownership:
1. Lots of light
Aluminium is the material typically used to construct most contemporary orangeries as it is very flexible and can create very slim sightlines.
These slender sightlines allow big pieces of glass to be incorporated into the design which inevitably enables a huge pouring of natural light to enter into the structure.
More natural light will be enticed inside when you commission the installation of a glass-to-floor design.
2. Improves the resale value of your home
Selling up will be the last thing on the mind of the majority of people extending their home with an orangery, but you may want to do just that in the future.
When that time comes you could be quids in as it is estimated that an orangery installation can enhance the value of your home by around 7%.
It could also put you in pole position over any rival householder trying to sell their property without an orangery included.
3. Use it whatever way best suits you
Using an orangery as an additional living room is just one of many possibilities as it can also act as one of the following:
• Dining area
• Home gym
Some orangeries are so spacious that you could use them as a combined living and dining area.
4. It brings home and garden closer
When you have the luxury of a garden it’s nice to be able to feel close to it without even having to exit your home. An orangery will give you that sensation.
You could also connect your orangery to the garden by including a set of French doors, patio doors or bi-folding doors in the design. Choose the door solution that offers you the most satisfying opening.
5. It doesn’t usually need planning permission
When an orangery is classed as being a “permitted development” you won’t need to concern yourself with obtaining planning permission and can commence with the installation.
It will be a “permitted development” if it meets the below guidelines:
• The orangery must not exceed or cover in excess of 50% of the size of the house
• Should not exceed 4 metres in height
• Should not include any Verandas, Balconies or Elevated Platforms
• Should not be more than half the width of the house
• Should not have eaves higher than 3 metres if within 2 metres of a structure boundary
