Orangeries, Conservatories & Garden Rooms

We are a nationwide supplier of high quality Orangery, Conservatory and Garden Room structures. We make all of our Orangeries and Conservatories in-house using -quality, long-lasting hardwoods including Sapele, Oak and Idigbo.

Orangeries are built with a perimeter roof and suspended roof lantern / glass lantern. The orangery itself is a bespoke structure which can be designed to fit onto a property even if space is limited. Orangeries can be constructed as a kitchen extension, living room extension or as a structure to connect two properties. Conservatories and Orangeries are different but have many similarities, the main difference is that a conservatory roof is connected directly to the side-framing, whereas an orangery has a flat roof element. Both orangeries and conservatories may have brickwork sections or piers as part of the side structure, but it is more common for these to be a significant part of the structure within an orangery.

Our Orangery & Conservatory Products are built using high quality materials and craftsmanship which also makes our products energy efficient and thermally dynamic. Regardless of the choice of materials, our Orangeries and Conservatories make a great addition to any home or property, whether it’s for extra living space, storage space or even an office.

Popular Home Extension Ideas

Orangerie were buildings frequently found / located in prestige residences throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Orangeries were designed to be similar to a greenhouse (glass room) to allow maximum light and warmth into a property which typically grew citrus trees, orange trees & other produce. This type of structure frequently contained complex architecture for looks and for glass panels to be mounted to in an arrangement that allowed for maximum light to enter.

The Orangery originally came from the Renaissance gardens in Italy at the time when manufacturing for glass was sufficient to produce the glass sizes required for Orangery roofs. The Dutch led the way in developing larger and larger panes of window glass. Dutch manuals showed solid roofs that were beamed or vaulted and were easier to manufacture using the heat from a stove rather than using open fires and blue flames. They eventually became a symbol of wealth and were expensive to manufacutre & buy which led to the installations being in more affluent areas of the UK and other areas in europe.

Learn more about The History of Orangeries

An Orangery is a room or dedicated building that is the equivalent of an atrium-style conservatory featuring a brick base and a roof composed of a centralised roof lantern with a flat roof perimeter.

The main differences between an Orangery and a Conservatory are the base and the roof. Orangeries typically have a brickwork base and a flat roof with a centralised roof lantern whilst conservatories typically have a centralised pitched roof and a frame construction that goes from the ground directly up to the pitched roof edge with no perimeter.

Due to the bespoke nature of Orangeries, the cost can range anywhere from £8,000 through to £100,000+ depending on the size, style, design and features. Typically Orangeries will range from £10,000 onwards.

Orangeries are mainly constucted from multiple materials from a timber, oak or pine framework with a brick or stone base/pillars and a corbel gutter.

Choosing a wood type is all down to style preferences, as all of the Sapele, Idigbo and Oak hardwoods which we use are naturally durable, and are factory-finished with purpose-made paints and stains to protect them from the elements. The different species we use each have their own grain and colour characteristics. If you would like to learn more, please speak to one of our team who will be happy to help. For opaque-painted colours, and darker translucent stained colours we use Sapele timber as standard, as this species has a dense, close grain and is naturally strong and durable. For lighter stained colours we recommend Idigbo, which has a lighter, more yellow colour and a slightly more open grain than Sapele. For that really special touch, or a rustic look, why not choose European Oak. We recommend that Oak is stained in one of our lightest stain colours as this lets the natural beauty of the timber through.
We offer a range of orangery and conservatory flooring types including real hardwood flooring, wood and stone effect flooring, mosaic, metallic and pebble effect vinyl tiles and more.
Thermal efficiency is important for both environmental reasons and energy efficiency reasons. Our products are precision made meaning perfect air tight seals between components giving excellent thermal U-Values and excellent energy efficiency.
Most of the time people choose to extend their property with a conservatory just for extra living space, however, Orangeries are frequently used to extend key areas of a home such as a living room or kitchen. Conservatories are more popular for smaller properties, whilst Orangery structures tend to extend a property much further.
Your property will require additional planning permission before any further extensions can be made to ensure that specific guidelines are met. Adding a conservatory or orangery to your home is considered to be "permitted development" which generally does not need an application for planning permission unless it falls outside of set planning guidelines.
