Orangeries are fast becoming the next generation of conservatory

Author: Conservatory Outlet Team  |  Leave a Comment >>

The orangery is the forerunner to the conservatory and dates back to the 17th Century. Originally, orangeries were designed to protect valuable and exotic plants and fruits during the winter months. Early orangeries had large windows and doors within a stone building. Today, orangeries retain a unique character that sets them apart from conservatories, but the distinction between them has evolved over time and now orangeries are generally defined as the next generation of conservatory.

Orangeries represent the ideal combination of the benefits and looks of conservatories and more conventional extensions. They are wonderfully light and airy spaces due to the glazed roofs as well as being cosy and inviting throughout the year. For this reason orangeries provide unique multi-purpose living space. Recently there has been a significant growth in popularity – customers who might have opted for a conservatory are now increasingly likely to choose an orangery.

At last years’ Industry debate we had two of the main conservatory roof systems companies agreeing that most conservatories resembled ‘plastic boxes’ stuck on the side of houses. Well, orangeries can clearly be designed to complement an existing home more sympathetically.

They’re also not as much hassle for building as you would have thought, especially if the orangery is kept within the 50% glazed wall frame rule, keeping them exempt from building regulations.
