Traditionally used to create a Mediterranean growing environment for oranges and fruit trees while protecting them during the winter months orangeries became popular with fashionable residences from the 17th century onwards.
Orangeries have a unique style that makes them a chic alternative to the traditional conservatory or extension. At Coral Windows and Conservatories, we can provide a totally personalised service that allows you to create a design relevant to your requirements and design choices but the classic element of an orangery is as follows. An orangery has a flat roof with a glazed lantern set in its design, this could be one or several depending on the size of the build. It also features built up walls and glazed windows.
Today an orangery is becoming a popular choice when it comes to adding space to your home due to the clever mix of design elements that provide a light airy space with a solidly built structure. Basically, an orangery can provide a more long-lasting insulated solid built construction like that of an extension but it also provides the added light that a conservatory traditionally brings, the best of both worlds and added space.
Before completing any alterations and improvements to your property it is vital that you submit any relevant paperwork/ documents to the correct planning and building regulators.
