An Orangery for your home in Ipswich, Essex and Surrey

An elegant way to extend your home, a timber or uPVC orangery is the epitome of elegance and modern design and is one of the most desirable ways to extend your home. It offers a fantastic light-filled space you can enjoy as a place to relax or entertain and is sure to add kerb appeal to your property. An orangery is an ideal balance for letting the light in like a glass extension yet maintaining the feel of a full home expansion.

What is an Orangery?

Originally used by the upper classes as an outhouse to grow citrus fruit, orangeries originated in Italy. This renaissance and Mediterranean feel is still injected into their sophisticated design, providing the perfect balance between a modern glass conservatory and a brick home extension. They differ from a traditional conservatory by having brick supporting walls rather than being fully glazed, giving you more privacy yet still letting in the natural sunlight. Although our orangeries are made-to-measure as part of the design journey, they tend to be designed in a rectangular shape to maximise the floor space you gain.

    A range of timeless orangery colours and styles

    Classic renaissance orangeries were designed using colours such as cream and white. Coupled with bespoke pillars, decorative flourishes and stylish French doors, this aesthetic is still fused into orangery designs today. For homeowners looking for a traditional orangery appearance, we can blend beautifully neutral exterior walls, with bespoke brickwork that will seamlessly blend with your home’s current character, that will achieve the charming and elegant appearance that orangeries are known for.

    As our orangeries are tailored to each project, we can also design contemporary glass extensions. Popular modern orangery designs include white exteriors that contrast with sleek black bifold doors and grey or black windows. Monochromatic roof lanterns are also common in bespoke orangery installations to add further aesthetic excellence.
    No matter the appearance you desire for your new extension, our wide range of brickwork styles and orangery colours, including Chartwell green, white, cream and an array of grey shades, will provide the perfect choice for your home.

    Industry-leading thermal performances with a modern orangery

    Like all of our products, our orangeries utilise only the highest-quality materials available on the market, boasting unparalleled levels of energy efficiency that could even reduce your heating bills, this makes their price an even better investment for your property. Incorporating fully-insulated columns, densely layered roofing panels and our high-performance glazing that can achieve U-values of 1.0 W/m2K, your orangery will benefit from energy ratings that surpass the building regulation standards.

    A bespoke orangery promises an enjoyable interior temperature regardless of the weather outside. With its pioneering design that will add considerable value to your property, it will proactively keep the warmth from escaping outside, while the glazing panes and tightly sealed frames will block the draughts from entering.

    What is the difference between a orangery and conservatory?

    An orangery is a solidly constructed extension with brick or stone walls, large windows, and a flat roof with a central skylight. A conservatory, on the other hand, is predominantly made of glass, including the walls and roof. It is typically less solid in construction compared to an orangery.

    Can you use an orangery in winter?

    Yes, an orangery can be used in winter as it is typically designed to provide better insulation and thermal efficiency than a conservatory. The solid construction and thicker walls of an orangery help to retain heat, making it more suitable for year-round use, including during the colder months.
