5 reasons you need an orangery


  1. Orangeries are a structural part of your houseWhite orangery

Do you need the space of an extension but lust after the light and airy feel of a conservatory? Well, orangeries are the answer. They blend seamlessly with the existing structure of your house – with brickwork, plaster on the inside and proper tiles on the outside with a lantern roof that lets the light in.

  1. You’ll have a versatile room that’s flooded with light

As orangeries are structural, it’s a fully insulated room that can be used year round. Whatever you need the extra space for – playroom, dining room, study or yoga studio – an orangery fits the bill. An should you need to block out the light, you can install beautiful blinds and shutters too.

  1. With the right structure they’re incredibly energy efficient

  1. You have extra space and might not need planning permission

You may not need to apply for planning permission if your orangery fits certain criteria for example:

  • It’s not more than 4 metres high

  • Does not cover more than 50% of the finished area of the house
