Orangeries Are Similar to Bespoke Conservatories

Bespoke conservatories have been popular with homeowners since the 1980s but now they are experiencing some competition from orangeries.

A significant number of homeowners chose to build conservatory extensions over the past 30 years due to improvements in technology such as double glazing becoming easier to manufacture.

Bespoke conservatories were also increasingly attractive to householders as the extensions become more energy efficient thanks to improvements in double glazing windows, which meant they were cheaper to run.

The extensions were transformed from expensive rooms which could only be used during the hottest of summer months to an enjoyable space that can be utilised throughout the year.

Despite all of these advantages, bespoke conservatories began to saturate the market and fashions began to change which saw a growth in the number of homeowners interested in orangeries.

In many ways, orangeries are very similar to bespoke conservatories as they can both act as light an airy spaces with glass roofs and windows which allow the rooms to have a unique use within a property.

While they have a lot of similarities, the two types of extension also differ in many ways as orangeries are usually built using brick or stone pillars which enable the home improvements to have a more substantial feel.

These stone pillars are fitted with large windows that allow natural light to flood the extension which provides plenty of warmth, while there are also spectacular views of the outside environment.

Modern orangeries typically incorporate double French doors as these make it access the outside garden and many of these doors are bi-fold, which really helps to open up the extension.

Homeowners that connect their garden decking to the same level as the outside their orangery will be able to create an illusion which makes it difficult to realise where the extension ends and the outside starts.

Many commentators see orangeries as a natural progression from bespoke conservatories but the traditional conservatory will always be popular because they are relatively inexpensive and easy to construct.

Orangeries may seem more elegant compared to the humble conservatory because more people want the showpiece structure but both home extensions will enjoy good sales in the near future as more householders are looking to improve instead of move.

If you want to discuss the benefits of building orangeries or bespoke conservatories, then you should consult your local conservator company as they will have the expertise to construct an extension which is most suitable to your property.
