Orangeries have become a very popular choice for many people as they incorporate the structure of an extension with the open space and feel of a conservatory in one. Many people who hold concerns about building a full extension find that an orangery is a suitable and more affordable alternative.
Originally, orangeries were used to house citrus trees, shrubs and other plant life through the cold winter months as they offered protection from frost and adverse weather which would damage or kill the roots. The orangery offered warmth and allowed sunlight to pour in through the glass allowing the plants to continue growing through the winter.
Today, orangeries have become an additional room in the house providing extra space for socialising and dining. They are built with modern insulation materials and glazed with energy efficient glass which retains the heat in the room during the winter and reflects the sun’s UV rays during hot weather to ensure that the room is usable all year round.
Depending on how you design it, they also offer more privacy and are generally cooler in hot weather than a conservatory too and help to reduce the amount of noise heard from outside.
