The Benefits of an Orangery
Orangeries offer multiple advantages to your home in addition to creating a brighter space. They are multi-purpose, energy efficient and attractive. You have the freedom to decide what you want to use your new orangery for. Many use this extension as a home cinema, lounge, dining room or even a bedroom. However, it’s completely up to you.
As we mentioned, orangeries give you a home extension that you can use as you wish. It’s a quicker and more affordable way to get additional living space in your home. Whether you want a guest room, a play room for your kids, or just a den to relax in, you have the freedom to choose.
All our orangeries are built using materials that are eco-friendly and recyclable. It doesn’t matter whether you fit your orangery with uPVC windows and doors, or aluminium fittings. We always ensure that the materials we provide are friendly to the environment. As a result, you get orangeries that are fully sustainable.
More Natural Light
Orangeries are a home extension with windows all along the walls. Unlike conservatories, they have more brick than double glazing. However, this does not in any way mean you get less natural light. In fact, you have complete control over the design so you decide how much light you want. You can specify the size and number of the windows, and the roof lantern specifications. As a result, you get a room that is brighter than any other room in your house!
Orangeries have a higher percentage of built-up area, using bricks or masonry instead of glass. They rely on windows all around and lantern roofs for sunlight. In contrast, conservatories are double-glazed all around. As a result, the structure of an orangery is more permanent and durable than a regular conservatory. In fact, some might even say that it’s more secure as well.
One of the disadvantages of a conservatory is that the clear walls might let in too much light. This is especially true if it’s installed on the south-facing side of the house. However, orangeries are ideal for such positioning. They limit the amount of sunlight entering the room without completely blocking it out. You can relax about getting too much sun!
A modern day orangery combines the light and airy feel of a conservatory with all the practicalities of a sunroom. An orangery can be used all year round. If you are looking for natural sun light, energy efficiency double glazing as well a versatile and stylish space, then an orangery could be the extension for you.
Modern orangeries are designed to give your home the thermal protection it needs. They offer insulation and weather protection so you can enjoy it all year round. In fact, you can warm your orangeries with lesser energy consumption and keep it warm longer. What’s more, our superior weather proofing ensures that no cold draught or rain water can enter.
