Expanding your living space with conservatory installers
Should I Choose an Orangery or a Conservatory?
With so many differences between orangeries and conservatories, it's hard to know what one is best for your home. You can have either installed with just about any style of property, but it's important to consider a few things before you get to make a final decision.
Orangeries couple better with smaller homes, due to their rectangular shape. Covering too much surface area with an oversized orangery could ruin the visual appeal of your home. You also wouldn't want to cover too much of your garden with an orangery, so take that into account when choosing between the two.
Our conservatory installers should be able to match the brickwork of your home to your orangery, which can help maintain its period charm. Although conservatories can be tailored to suit older properties, an orangery will blend more effortlessly.
However, if you live in a bigger house, you can have conservatories designed bespoke to fit your available space. This is another difference between conservatories and orangeries. With this, you can create P and T-shaped conservatory designs, which will perfectly blend with your home without looking oversized.
If you're still unsure whether a conservatory or an orangery is right for your home, you can discuss further with your approved Wiser Conservatory Installer, who will make recommendations after seeing your home.
What's the Difference Between an Orangery and a Conservatory?
These styles used to differentiate themselves from one another; these days, the differences between a conservatory and an orangery are less apparent. This is making the research and buying process harder for homeowners like yourself.
The difference between orangery and conservatory is that today orangeries are seen on smaller homes and are glazed structures more like conservatories. They tend to have more solidity in the roof with the use of a lantern and flat roof or an internal pelmet around the perimeter of the ceiling and usually have pillars made from brick or super-insulated aluminium columns which add an element of grandeur.
The main difference between a conservatory and an orangery is that the former are usually made from glass or polycarbonate panels. This brings the outside inside, without the solidity or grandeur of an orangery. With high-performance glass and advances in thermally efficient technology such as insulated internal pelmets and super-insulated columns, today’s conservatories look as impressive and feel just as cosy as an orangery. Design options such as colour and decorative Cornices provide options to create something unique and stylish too.
An orangery can be designed to include floor-to-ceiling glass, and brick pillars can be excluded. This means an orangery can look like a conservatory and vice-versa. This means that you, as a customer, will have complete control over the look of your new room and can ensure the finished installation looks as expected with our conservatory installers.
