"Which do you choose from? An Orangery or a Conservatory?"
We are all familiar with home extensions and know that they benefit the value of a house, as well as creating more space for an improved lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for a small room to clean the dog after a muddy walk or a quiet open space to sit and watch the wildlife in the garden, orangeries and conservatories are a great additional feature to any home. But, although many of us appreciate their benefits, we’re not always certain of the difference between the two.
The Difference between an Orangery and Conservatory
A conservatory is generally an additional room to the house and, as a result, shares similar design features to your home.
An orangery is also an extension to the house, however, it has more emphasis on luxury and elegance. Orangeries are larger than conservatories and traditionally feature more brickwork, larger windows and a glass roof.
Why Hardwood Orangeries are a Popular Choice
Hardwood orangeries offer the combination of a substantial, strong structure and luxury living. Hardwood is a versatile group of woods that, due to their solid form and attractive appearance, are often used for manufacturing furniture and structures, as well as orangeries and conservatories.
Hardwoods are produced by angiosperm trees (a diverse group of flowering plants) and types of hardwood include Boxwood, Oak, Mahogany and Maple.
