Conservatories Vs Orangeries: What’s the difference?
If you’re looking to create more space in your home and add value to your property then a conservatory or orangery could be the ideal extension choice for you. Whatever you choose, committing to a property extension is a big decision, so the first step is to understand the differences between conservatories and orangeries so that you can make the right choice to best meet the needs of you and your family.
What are Conservatories?
A conservatory is an extension to your property made mostly from glass, with minimal brickwork. A conservatory will allow you to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of the indoors all year round.
Conservatories are extremely versatile and can be designed to fit your exact specifications. They are an ideal choice for those who want to create an additional living space, which can be used for relaxing, entertaining or dining, or a transitional space between their property and their garden.
Made from uPVC glazing, conservatories are a practical choice – now more so than ever before. At Rhino we use quality Veka uPVC glazing, which means that your conservatory will remain warm and cosy during the cooler months.
What are Orangeries?
An orangery is a property extension made from a combination of brick and glass. Unlike a standard extension an orangery is usually characterised by full-length glass windows and/or doors, as well as all or some of the roof constructed with glass.
Orangeries are a popular choice for those seeking to extend their existing living space. The brick element of an orangery construction is a practical option if more wall space is required. For example, if the orangery is used to house a kitchen, a home office, your main living space, or if more privacy is required. The addition of the glass creates a light, bright and functional indoor space.
