Its fair to say that most people couldn’t actually explain the differences between an orangery and a conservatory, unless of course you have one.

In fact recent trends amongst UK home owners show that more and more people are installing conservatories that are in fact Orangeries in design.


ORANGERIES & CONSERVATORIES - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

As far back as the 15th century, conservatories were known as Orangeries and used primarily for growing fruit and other plants.

Today, we use a conservatory or an Orangery primarily for providing additional living Timber Orangeryspace to our homes.

Conservatories in the UK have become very popular over the last few years and it seems like everyone wants to create that extra space and that pleasant link with the outside garden. A conservatory is without doubt, the easiest and most economical way of extending the home and with the option of DIY conservatories, the costs can be even lower.

More recently, ‘Orangeries’ have increased in popularity in the UK. So what is considered a conservatory and what is considered an Orangery? What is the difference?

Well, a conservatory in it’s typical form, primarily consists of fully glazed elevations (walls) and a translucent roof glazed with either polycarbonate sheets or double glazed glass units. Many conservatories however, are built on a brick dwarf wall and many are built with full height brick walls to one or more elevations. So what is an Orangery?

There seems to be a little confusion over whether a particular structure should be considered a conservatory or an Orangery. In my view, the modern Orangery tends to resemble a structure that is half conservatory and half brick built extension with a greater brick built elevation area than the typical conservatory but more glazed windows than a traditional brick built home extension and nearly always features a glass ‘conservatory type’ roof.

The fundamental difference between an Orangery and a Conservatory is its structure, a conservatory is generally regarded as a temporary non-integral part of the property.

An Orangery, with its greater mass of columns, pilasters and classic details creates a striking visual impact and contributes to the overall appeal of your home with a robust and permanent presence.


SO HOW MUCH DOES AN ORANGERY COST?

Now that you know that an Orangery is cross between a traditional extension and a conservatory then you understand that it will costs far more than a conservatory and usually less than an extension.

However, Orangeries have a much higher level of detail than either extensions or conservatories so it is quite possible to pay a similar amount to a quality extension.

As a guide you would be looking at upwards of 20,000 at the lower end with figures of 100,000 plus for luxury bespoke models.
