Orangeries are one of the best home improvements trends at the moment and can really add that something special to you home. Enjoy extra space for your family with a stunning design that sets you apart from the rest. Here are our top tips for making your orangery project go smoothly.
How do you want to transform your home?
First things first, what’s the main reason you want an orangery? Is there a particular room you want to extend or add to your home? This will help you plan the size and style of your orangery to make the most of your space. Orangeries make great kitchen extensions where they can give you that extra room to whip up a feast or add a dining area for the whole family to enjoy. How about a relaxing lounge where you can enjoy the sun and your gorgeous views?
Location is key
Traditionally conservatories and orangeries were south facing to get the most sun exposure but this isn’t always possible or desirable. If your garden is a suntrap you might find it too much to be in direct sunlight all the time. Also, what’s important to consider is which room you want the orangery attached to. By knocking down an external wall you can create an open plan room to maximise your space. This is ideal for a kitchen/diner which you can use for entertaining.
Pick the style that fits with your home
Orangeries have a stunning look that can suit any home. With versatile uPVC, you can choose from a range of colours or even pick woodgrain finishes to replicate timber. This looks particularly effective in traditional homes. With aluminium, you choose form over 150 RAL colours; you’re sure to find one that suits your home.
How much glazing do you want?
The recognisable feature of an orangery is often its lantern roof. This stunning pitched glazed roof is on top of a flat roof to let in the maximum amount of light while maintaining your privacy. These robust yet slim frames let the light flood through your home yet still provide an efficient roof system. Our glass is solar control and you can even choose the easy-clean option to keep your orangery looking good all year round.
Add the finishing touches
An orangery’s roof means you can enjoy a plastered perimeter ceiling; spotlights and speakers can easily be installed into this. Your new orangery can become the most sophisticated and modern room in your home without taking away any of its original charm.
