Orangeries are a different take on the traditional conservatory design, being built from brick or masonry rather than glass. An Orangery is very similar to a typical house extension, with the brick structure being designed to blend perfectly with your existing property.
Orangeries date back to the seventeenth century when glass manufacturing techniques advanced and wealthy landowners built structures to protected orange and citrus trees from the cold winters here in the UK. Today, the modern orangery is halfway between a conservatory and an extension.
This combination of conservatory and extensions offers homeowners in Sittingbourne with the benefits of both. Enjoy the light and airy feel of a conservatory together with the privacy and insulation of an extension. With the ratio of brick to glass your choice entirely, you’re sure to create the perfect addition to your home.
Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and lantern style roofs are typical features in Orangeries. Highly versatile, an Orangery has many uses and can give much added depth and dimension to a kitchen or family room. The space can even be utilised as a gym, office or bedroom.
