This type of home addition first appeared in the gardens of renaissance Italy where the local glass makers were among the first to perfect the art of creating large sheets of clear glass.

The cost to create a new orangery from scratch is around £32,000 in the UK. Remember that this is a completely average - each orangery is unique, and one orangery extension may be far cheaper while another conservatory is much more expensive. There are a lot of factors that can influence the cost of an orangery, from overall size to the materials used to construct it.
We always aim to keep each orangery extension within the client's budget, working with them to find more suitable orangery designs and additions that can keep the costs low. We want to make building an orangery a stress-free process for our clients, especially if they're on a limited budget.
Different features and design elements can completely change the overall cost of an orangery, and our team specialise in making sure that every single client gets exactly what they're looking for. Whether it's simple wooden shutters or elaborate French doors, we can help you budget and focus on the design elements you want most.

Planning is a core part of making an orangery possible. We offer advice and year-round support to help clients plan out their orangery brick by brick, helping them to manage the perfect balance of functional design and aesthetics to get our clients what they're looking for.
When it comes to an orangery, having experts on standby to help you construct the overall plan is really important. Even the smallest change can influence how good an orangery is at retaining heat, letting in natural light, or acting as a place to grow exotic plants separate from your main garden.
While other companies like David Salisbury may have pre-set designs, we focus on truly bespoke options that are unique to each client. Our trading style focuses on giving clients the room space that their gardens deserve, right down to the number of windows and the way the light moves through the space.
Not all orangery designs need planning permission. Even something like a brick base doesn't require planning permission, since a typical orangery extension can fit with most building regulations and fall under UK permitted development rights.
However, certain changes may force you to seek planning permission. Our experts can help guide you through the minefield of building rules and regulations you will need to follow if you want to add a conservatory or orangery extension to your home.
If you live in a conservation area or listed buildings (often meaning a period property that can't be modified too much), then planning permission becomes far more important. A listed building sometimes has more restrictions, like matching the brick type and windows to the rest of the house.

An orangery extension is like a conservatory, only with roof lanterns instead of an all-glass glazed roof. Your average modern orangery design will use tall windows with double or triple glazing (some of which will be opening windows) as well as fully-glazed roof lanterns to provide natural light alongside a solid roof.
Conservatories are simpler garden rooms, often using more basic windows, doors and overall designs. While they're fully-glazed to retain a comfortable temperature, they usually have either a solid flat roof or a full glass roof, glazed just like the windows.
A modern orangery, by contrast, uses roof lanterns and a more solid, stable design. This can mean a brick-built base and mode solid brick walls compared to UPVC frames, acting as a more solid house extension. The roof lanterns let in more natural light while still providing the same benefits as a normal house roof would offer.
The orangery got its name form being used to grow citrus fruits like oranges all year round. Even now, an orangery can be a good way to grow fruits in your house, with the large windows and lanterns letting in more light to help them grow.
An orangery is often going to be more expensive than a conservatory, but that's because the main difference between the two is in the designs. Most orangeries use a range of tougher and more durable materials that cost a lot more overall, letting each orangery add its own strengths to the house while also costing more overall.
Of course, this is still all based on averages. One conservatory may cost far more than another depending on the design, and a simple orangery can be surprisingly cheap. This all depends on the materials, scope, scale and complexity of the orangery design itself.
An orangery will provide more value to your house, offer a better view of the garden, and make it easier to grow both simple and exotic plants all year round. The heat retention can mean lower energy bills, and the room that a larger orangery offers can be significant.
However, conservatories are cheaper and often easier to build, making them a faster and less costly option compared to an orangery. They both fall into different niches, even though they're also similar enough to mean that there isn't a perfect option either way.
Both are perfect options for people who want windows out into their gardens, and potential buyers usually enjoy both just as well. Even so, if you want the better option, an orangery can be the ideal way to improve gardens and extend your home.
Orangeries are very warm all year round, even during colder months. They're designed to retain heat from sunlight and provide warm, comfortable environment regardless of the weather outside, making them incredibly good at providing heating during winter as long as the sun is hitting the windows.
Good insulation makes all the difference. We can make sure that your windows are kept as insulated as the rest of your house, or even go a step beyond and install better-insulated windows to keep that part of your house warmer.
Orangeries, along with any other kind of garden room, absolutely require foundations. Each room like this needs to be built well, with foundations supporting the walls and allowing the extension to stand firm against the house. Without a foundation, the room becomes far less safe.
Even the most basic wooden orangeries can require foundations, since wooden orangeries are no less heavy and complex than their other counterparts. If you have the empty space ready for an orangery, make sure to take into account the fact that you need to have foundations added before it can be constructed.
Orangeries can be a great addition to your home and an amazing place to spend your evenings, especially if you have a nice garden to look out onto. Of course, you also want the right orangery for the job - the better the design, the more you'll enjoy using it as a constant part of your home.
Good orangeries aren't just ones that look good. They also need solid brick bases, excellent insulation, plenty of room to move around, and enough space to be usable without taking up too much room in your garden. Doing all of this without outside help can be tricky at the best of times.
