The idea of adding a conservatory to your home to add space isn’t a new one – even back in Victorian times, these structures were used although mostly as somewhere to grow exotic new species of plants that were being imported! Today, we have a whole range of styles of conservatory you use as a house extension.
But what about an orangery? Related to the conservatory but a little different, this is a traditional style that has become more popular as people want options when it comes to their extension. Orangeries are somewhere between a traditional conservatory and a single storey, brick built extension. They have more brickwork and pillars for support and often a semi-solid roof or even fully tiled.
Orangeries are ideal if you don’t want the extension to be a completely separate room. They can flow out from a kitchen or dining room and there’s not always the need for a door which can make the downstairs area seem much bigger.
They do tend to be more expensive than conservatories because there’s more brickwork and therefore more work involved. They do need to comply with building regulations the same as other types of extension as well so working with a company who specialises in house extensions is always a good idea.
