Spot The Difference: Orangeries vs. Conservatories

Author: Conservatories & Double Glazing Expert  |  Leave a Comment >>

For many people an orangery and a conservatory are two identical structures. To the untrained eye this is probably the case, but there are some subtle differences that distinguish the two extensions.

While both orangeries and conservatories were designed to house foreign plants from the harsh British weather in the 17th century, both have evolved past this original function.

The crucial difference between the two constructions is the amount of glass used in the building. Where a conservatory is made of up to 80% glass an orangery will feature considerably more brickwork. An orangery is considered more of a traditional extension where a conservatory is viewed as a modern addition to any home.

Both conservatories and orangeries have benefitted from modern double glazing technology which has made them a wonderful addition to any home all year round. Both buildings can give your home a new lease of life while giving your family a wonderful new room to use. Both conservatories and orangeries make wonderful lounges, dining rooms and hobby rooms.

If you’re considering buying a new conservatory or orangery to get more space and enjoy the summer then visit one of our showrooms today and our helpful team will find you the perfect extension for you.
