We can create orangeries that are truly bespoke for your home, with a number of customisable options. These include various roof options, window positions and stunning designs. The ratio of glass to brick is at the discretion of our Maidstone customers, giving you complete creative freedom over your new home improvement.
An orangery is a combination of a conservatory and home extension. Typically built from brick, an orangery provides the same airy, bright living space as a conservatory while delivering the security of a home extension. Additionally, the masonry brick base of an orangery allows this new addition to blend seamlessly with your home’s existing architecture.
Orangeries originally date back to the seventeenth century, where glass manufacturing was only afforded by the rich. With this, wealthy landowners would build orangeries to protect their prized citrus trees or shrubs from the harsh winters. In the modern age, orangeries are a perfect blend of a home extension and conservatory.
Orangeries are also exceptionally versatile by design. Homeowners have the option to incorporate floor to ceiling glass, lantern style roofs or bi-fold doors to seamlessly connect your home to your garden. Your new orangery provides limitless opportunities for how to use your new space. Transform your orangery into a home office, dining room, playroom for children or a relaxing room to host guests and spend time with loved ones.
Orangeries provide all the functionality of a conservatory, without any of the disadvantages. Many homeowners struggle to enjoy their conservatory all year round, with it being too hot in summer and too cold in the winter. With our selection of orangeries, Maidstone homeowners can enjoy their extra space all year round thanks to their enhanced insulating properties.
Unlike traditional conservatories, orangeries are made of a mix of brick and glazing. When having an orangery installed, the brick structure means your home will benefit from enhanced security and privacy. However, with a variety of glazing and window options, your new space will feel bright and spacious all year round.
Orangeries also offer better sound reduction than conservatories. Due to the main material being brick, orangeries are designed to block out any noises from the outside world and provide exceptional sound insulation. This makes orangeries a great option for Maidstone homeowners who live on a busy road or in a built-up area. You can relax in the comfort of your own home with our exceptional selection of orangery options.
With their open-plan structures and vast glazing options, orangeries can transform your home by increasing the amount of natural light that passes through. Particularly popular within south-facing homes, orangeries can boost the amount of daylight within your property without becoming too hot.
Many homeowners like the overall look of a conservatory, but struggle with temperature control throughout the year. This can often render conservatories unusable during certain seasons. With BuyRight’s orangeries, the solid wall structure keeps the room cool no matter the temperature outside. The solid wall incorporates cavity insulation, meaning you can use the space all year round without worrying about the temperature.
Each orangery we install is fitted with WER (Window Energy Rating) A+ glazing. This prevents any cold draughts from entering your home and boosts your properties natural heat retention. With their innovative design, the glazing can increase your home’s thermal performance and reduce the need to use your central heating. Not only is this a more eco-friendly option, but can also help you curb the cost of your energy bills in the long run.
Maidstone and Kent based homeowners can choose from a number of roof options when designing their new orangery. Fully glazed roofs naturally increase the amount of natural light within your home, ideal for darker areas of the home or north-facing properties. The classic design of orangeries makes the structure perfect for installing roof lanterns, working fantastically with both flat or solid roofs.
If you enjoy the classic look of a conservatory, but want still want the modern-day features of an orangery, why not choose our classic roof with a plastered internal ceiling? With this, homeowners can enjoy the traditional look of a conservatory roof, while enjoying an ambient room inside the property. Plastered ceilings work well with downlights and homeowners can even embed speakers into their new addition.
