Wooden Orangeries

Orangeries first became popular in the early 17th century for growing exotic plants and fruits that where know to be native to warmer countries. In the UK originally Orangeries were stone built with large sash windows and lantern roofs, and these were the forerunners to conservatories back in the day. Today’s Orangeries are built as beautiful extensions to your home that allow light to flood down into your home from the lantern roof and the tall windows. The difference between a Orangery and conservatories is that Orangeries have side elevations partly constructed from hardwood or stone, whereas conservatory walls are entirely glass. No matter what style or choice of materials you decide to choose for your orangery, it will be a beautiful addition to your home.

Adding an orangery to your home will immediately offer that extra room, light and space you can imagine. Orangeries offer the perfect combination of benefits and looks or a normal conventional extension and even more. Orangeries are defiantly a more substantial extensions that a conservatory, they are suitable for listed buildings and if they are sympathetically designed you can even be granted planning permission in a conservation area. Over the last few years the orangery is very fast becoming the preferred option for a modern glazed extension for your home. A recent trend that has been introduced to Orangeries is sliding folding doors so that the whole of one side of your orangery can be opened up to the garden. These contemporary Orangeries can really make the whole world of difference to your property.

When considering improvements to your property it is important to consider all possibilities in order to find the build that’s right for you and your family. Here at Conservatories.net we provide a wide range of styled conservatories including wooden frames and UPVC, however one of our most popular alternatives is our range of orangeries that also come in a range of budgets and designs to meet your families’ particular needs.

Often considered a halfway point between a conservatory and a full extension, orangeries are a home improvement that were first made popular during the Edwardian period (17th Century) by families who wished to grow the exotic fruits such as oranges and bananas (usually the luxury of much warmer nations) throughout the British summer. In the modern era these spaces now make for wonderful extensions to the modern home and are great for several purposes including dining, lounging, or entertaining.

Their designs include large panes of glass similar to that of a conservatory, however rather than being walled by glass they are framed by side elevations of stone or hardwood timber. The design also includes a lantern-style roof which as you can imagine allows for a lot of light and a lot of warmth. Their general design also allows for many unique and useful features to be added throughout the build such as sliding doors and tilt turn windows. You can even have one side of the orangery open up completely. This is a great way to have more contact with your garden space and to bring the outside air in to your home.

You can also have fun choosing the style of lighting you would like for your orangeries as their unusual build style makes them very versatile in this department. You can choose from roof lighting which beams down or wall lighting, this is a great way to make your surroundings unique using both the natural and synthetic light on offer.
