Orangeries were used in centuries past as a place to overwinter citrus trees. Nowadays along with conservatories they are used as a home extension providing a bright and elegant living space.
An Orangery is a similar construction to that of a conservatory both using a base of stone or brick instead of just one material.
Conservatories are made from UPVC materials giving them durability against the elements, are easily constructed and maintained and give them a long life. Orangeries are generally made from a mixture of stone or brick base followed by a wooden framed structure that has glass mounted panels. The roof is usually a roof lantern that is shaped to allow maximum light to enter and is mounted within a flat, plastered ceiling with lights fitted making the inside feel like another room of your house and with greater insulation enabling you to use it through the cold winter months.
