Extend your Shropshire home: Orangery or Conservatory?

When contemplating adding extra space onto your home, many people will consider a conservatory or an orangery

The two are regularly consider as the same thing – but there are a few differences between an orangery and a conservatory. 

The general rule is that a conservatory is fully glazed and therefore contains a lot more glass than an orangery.  A conservatory tends to have around 75% or more glazing on the roof, whilst it is the opposite is true of orangeries. However with a bespoke service a conservatory can have as much brick work as the homeowner wishes it to have. An orangery is dependent on a more solid base to support the roof and will have a grander, atrium-style ceiling height.

Both are the perfect way to obtain more space in your house because generally an orangery or conservatory is a permitted development which, unlike extending your house in another way, does not require planning permission, providing they meet certain criteria.

An orangery is the perfect solution to bridge the gap between a conservatory and a fully loaded single storey extension, whereas if you are looking to bring more light in to your home a conservatory is a cost effective way draw more daylight in to the house.
