Here at Farrow & Jones, we create bespoke orangeries to your exact specifications. We can take you through different kinds of orangery designs so that you can source inspiration and work out what suits your individual taste. Then, we will bring it all together through a cohesive, final design and get to building! This process gives you so much creative freedom, but we know that, with so many possibilities, it can initially feel overwhelming, so we’ve put together a handful of ideas to get you started.
When considering orangery designs you need to keep planning permission in mind. Fortunately, with a kitchen extension, you may not need planning permission at all! However, if your design does require this, we are happy to help and complete all the relevant paperwork for you. This is one of the many ways that we ensure a stress-free build!
This is one of the first basic style questions that you need to ask yourself: do you prefer modern or classic orangery designs, or would you prefer a bit of both? Once you have this decision made, it will be easier for you to design how you want your orangery built and how you will decorate it.
For a modern look, you could opt for one of our aluminium orangeries. They are durable, contemporary and could either be built from scratch or could be a renovation of an existing structure.
Hardwood orangery designs are a classic option, which give your property a whole new lease of life, but with a traditional aesthetic. You could pair this with exposed brick exterior walls and decorative cornice inside!
When making this decision, you need to consider the appearance of your existing property. You need to choose a style that will complement your home. We can source materials that are the perfect match, extending your property seamlessly.
You need to decide where your orangery will be positioned. With so much glass, you need to keep temperature in mind! We would suggest south-east or south-west facing; this allows the space to warm up and cool down appropriately throughout the day.
Remember to consider the sunshine when decorating. Soft furnishings can help the place to feel warm and inviting, but they are also more likely to fade if sitting directly in the light all day. Of course, curtains or blinds can solve this problem immediately!
If you’re unsure about where to position your orangery, we are here to advise!
