An orangery extension is a stylish and practical way to improve your home. They add extra space that can be used year-round and bring a real ‘wow factor’ to the existing property. Let’s have a closer look at why an orangery could be the perfect new addition to your home…
The Difference Between A Standard Extension And An Orangery Extension
An orangery extension combines elements of a standard extension and a conservatory. They are created using a combination of glass and brick, with more glass than a standard extension and more brick than a conservatory. As we design your orangery with you and they are all bespoke, the exact ratio is something that you can decide upon.
Another difference is that a standard extension has a flat or tiled roof, whereas an orangery has a roof lantern. These structures are often a focal point of the build as they are so aesthetically pleasing. They let in lots of natural light, which makes the space feel much bigger and more open, and is also good for both your mental and physical health. You can read more about this on another of our recent blogs.
An orangery is a stylish and sophisticated addition to any property, which is sure to wow any visitors! To get a better feel for what one could add to your property, you can order a brochure on our website.

Increase Property Value
Property development expert and interior designer, Rudolph Diesel, has stated that an orangery extension is an ‘underrated’ way to add value to ‘any home’. This kind of addition can increase the price of your home by up to 15%!
Of course, this is not the most important thing about these structures as they can also greatly improve your lifestyle and pride in your home, and that’s something that you can’t put a price on!
