The orangery is the forefather of the conservatory and dates back to the 17th Century. They were originally designed to protect valuable and exotic plants and fruits during the cold winter months.
Early orangeries had large windows and doors within a stone building.
Today, orangeries retain a unique character that sets them apart from all conservatories, but the distinction between them has evolved over the years and now orangeries are generally defined as the NEW GENERATION conservatory, providing a contemporary or traditional addition to your home.
Orangeries allow you to create a warm and inviting environment for your home but it will also offer so much more. It will become a focal point for social occassions, somewhere in which you will be proud to entertain guests, somewhere you and your family can relax in total comfort, regardless of the weather outside!
Rather than being a detached building, an orangery is a modern way to extend your home as they still create a relaxing and entertaining space that is often modern, unique and a feature room in any property.
An orangery is often a more practical solution, than a conservatory, for people who wish to extend their home and use the extra space all year round or open to the existing house. The brick or stone will provide better insulation during the colder months whilst the large percentage of glazing still provides a light and airy space.
Orangeries also feel more part of your existing build due to the use of walls and glazing providing all the best features of a conservatory and a traditional brick extension combined.
Previously orangeries were thought as only being available to the more wealthy end of the market, however Creative have affordable packages available to make the orangery dream a reality!
