Conservatories and orangeries

Conservatories and orangeries are a great way to increase space and add value to a property, creating a whole new room without the expense and disruption of building an extension.

A versatile, stylish and affordable way to maximise space

Conservatories and orangeries were originally designed to allow wealthy and powerful landowners to grow exotic plants and citrus fruits. Today’s conservatories and orangeries are usually designed to meet a very different brief: providing additional dining or living space for a wide range of homes, while maximising light and space. It is this versatility that makes orangeries and conservatories so enduringly popular.

Conservatories come in many shapes, styles and sizes, from bespoke designs to well-known, popular varieties. Gable-end conservatories offer a great sense of space, thanks to their impressive high-pitched roofs, while simple lean-to conservatories create a big impact on a small budget. For those who admire a more traditional look, the Victorian or Edwardian conservatory is the natural choice: the Victorian designs are inspired by the classic Victorian glass houses, while the square or rectangular Edwardian conservatories offer simple, elegant lines and pleasing symmetry.

Orangeries are a cross between an extension and a conservatory. Typically featuring more brickwork than conservatories, they offer plenty of space and light, with a greater feeling of privacy.
