Modern orangeries can expand your home’s space while feeling like a step up on a conservatory. They use more brickwork and less glass to give you a more shaded area that you have more control over.
Not only that, but their brickwork gives them better insulation and weather protection, meaning you’ll add a comfortable space for your family to enjoy.
An orangery feels more like a natural room in your home. That’s because you can build it with bricks that match your existing property, meaning it blends in beautifully.
Additionally, you can design the space with connecting doors and stunning windows, including ceiling-to-floor options. That way, you’ll get stunning natural light and views of your garden.
Orangeries used to be a statement of wealth and luxury in times gone by. However, they still have a similar effect today, adding a touch of class to any home with their design.
With more brickwork, you can get all the benefits and space of a conservatory but with more privacy and warmth. As a result, they’re perfect spaces to relax and unwind in.
When you work with us, you’ll also be able to invest in a space that uses market-leading materials. Instead of finding a supplier on your own, we can put you in contact with trusted specialists.
They have regulatory approval from bodies such as CERTASS, and they’ll install your space with care and courtesy. That way, you can save money and get a space you’ll love.
What Are The Benefits of Modern Orangeries?
The modern orangeries from our network combine traditional style with advanced performance.
Firstly, they use more brickwork to give you a robust structure. Because of this, you’ll feel more secure in your new space, and you won’t have to worry about it weakening. As a result, you won’t have to worry about any unwanted visitors getting into your orangery.
Additionally, your brickwork can help you keep bad weather out of your home. The bricks won’t warp or twist under excess water, and you can fit a cavity tray inside the walls that collects rain. Because of this, you can preserve the other features of your orangery for longer, meaning you can save money over time without needing to shell out for repairs.
And, with modern orangeries, you’ll be able to save money every day. That’s because they use advanced materials to keep your space warm and prevent cold air from getting in. The orangeries from our network have superb insulation, meaning that you’ll preserve your home’s natural warmth, without needing to waste energy from your central heating.
As a result, you can save money on your energy bills with a new orangery, as you’ll feel the effects right across your home. Another benefit you’ll see is the amount of space an orangery can give you. Because you can customise your orangery in any way that you choose, you can add as much room as you want to give you and your family freedom.
The design of an orangery gives you more flexibility. With brickwork, you can add plug sockets so you can add electrical components to the room. Also, an orangery won’t just save money for you inside your home, but it can put money in your pocket when you leave too. That’s because orangeries increase your home’s value by 7% on average.
Modern Orangeries Vs Conservatories
While the conservatories in our network can make a genuine difference to your home, modern orangeries give you better performance and more comfort. With their brickwork surroundings, you can get better protection and a more stable temperature. That way, you’ll be able to use your space all year round without worrying about the weather.
You can also get brilliant natural light into your orangery, as you can design it to prioritise this. For example, you can add bi-fold doors that use large panels of double glazing, or ceiling-to-floor windows that provide beautiful views. Alternatively, you can go the opposite way with smaller glass panels, giving you more control of your space’s lighting.
As well as that, orangeries offer far more insulation. You can add wall insulation into your brickwork, giving you an extra layer of protection against the cold. As a result, your orangery can set the standard for warmth in your home, and the heat from this space can warm the other rooms. That way, you’ll rely on your central heating even less.
And that is the significant benefit of an orangery. With a more durable design, you’ll be able to save more money on your energy bills and enjoy your new addition with more comfort. Additionally, orangeries will last longer before they begin to wear down and lose their performance, meaning you can pay back your investment for longer.
Do I Need Planning Permission For Modern Orangeries?
One way that modern orangeries and conservatories aren’t different, however, is their regulations. Orangeries have the same rules on planning permission, meaning that you can build them to the same scale without having to go through red tape.
As a result, you can take steps to avoid planning permission by working with the installers in our network.
Some of the guidelines you’ll have to follow when planning your orangery include:
- The orangery cannot take up more than half the land around your existing property
- If you decide to build your orangery at the side of your home, it can’t be wider than 50% of your home’s width
- You can’t build your orangery any further forward than your property’s sidewall
As well as that, you’ll have to ensure your new build complies with your ‘original home’. The original home refers to your home as it existed in 1948.
Because of this, you may have to check if any previous owners extended the space. However, the installers in our network will work with you and carry out technical surveys to ensure you can meet all the requirements.
How Can I Customise Modern Orangeries?
Modern orangeries give you total control of the design. These spaces are almost blank canvasses that you can style and tailor to your home and your needs. With an orangery, you can select windows, doors and other accessories in a range of styles to get a space that reflects your personality perfectly.
For example, you can be specific about just how much brickwork and glass you want. Although brickwork is more secure and protective, you’ll get advanced double glazing that delivers brilliant performance as well as beautiful lighting. As such, you can choose how you want to light your space depending on what you want to prioritise.
As well as that, adding a connecting door can make a genuine difference. For example, if you want to make your orangery feel like a bright and airy space, you can add sliding or bi-fold doors with plenty of double glazing. Alternatively, you could add a composite door that makes the area private and secluded through their superb sound insulation.
Not only can you add new features to your orangery, but you can also be precise with how it will look. Through our network, you can customise the colours and finishes of the orangery’s frames, windows and much more. With endless vibrant finishes to choose from, that won’t lose their shine for years, you can create the space of your dreams with us.
How Much Do Modern Orangeries Cost?
Modern orangeries are more costly than conservatories to install, as they use more durable materials. For a small orangery, you can expect to pay at least £24,000, with this cost rising depending on how large you want it to be.
Not only that but the customisable features you add to the build have a bearing on the overall cost too.
While this is a significant investment for your home, it will start paying itself back from the first day of installation. That’s because orangeries will save money for your home, as well as making it feel more spacious and more welcoming.
That way, you won’t just put more money in your pocket, but you and your family will benefit from a home that suits you more.
