Orangeries are a wonderful way to extend your home. Despite coming at a higher price point than conservatories, the benefits of these luxurious home extensions are numerous. We’ve laid out 6 of the best benefits of an orangery for you in this blog.

1. Comfortable living every day of the year

Orangeries are built with a combination of insulated brickwork and energy-efficient windows, doors and flooring. Thanks to this innovation you can be sure that your orangery will remain cosy in the winter and cool all summer long. An orangery will provide you with a comfortable, usable space all year round.

2. A space fit for any purpose

Having a space that can be used comfortably throughout the year gives you the freedom to use your orangery in any way you like. Some popular uses for orangeries include home gyms, offices, kitchen/dining rooms and living rooms. We’ll work with you to design a space that works perfectly for you, no matter what you intend to use it for.

3. Value-adding home extensions

Some estimates suggest that orangeries can add as much value to your home as a traditional brick and mortar extension, despite costing much less on average. This is great if you ever plan to sell your home in the future, and if you don’t, you can enjoy the extra living space for many years.

For exact figures on how much value an orangery could add to your home, speak to your local estate agent who can give you up to date information on properties in your area.

4. Highly customisable

When choosing an orangery from Halstead Glass, our team of experts will work with you to design the living space of your dreams. You’ll be able to customise everything from the amount of brickwork and glazing to the windows, doors, roof and frame colours, creating a completely unique orangery that fulfils both your practical and aesthetic desires.

Here are some of the popular options that our customers have incorporated into their orangery designs:

5. Enjoy lashings of natural light with an orangery

Although orangeries typically have less glazing than conservatories, they still have plenty of it. Therefore, lashings of natural light will flow into the space, so it will feel bright and spacious throughout the day. This is especially true for orangeries fitted with glazed lantern roofs, which allow more natural light to flow inside.

6. Blur the lines between your home and garden

Thanks to their light and airy designs, an orangery is a great way to blur the lines between your home and garden. It’s also a great way to transition between the two of them. Opting for a largely glazed design with bifold or patio doors will maximise the blending of your home and garden.
