This is by far one of our most popular questions. Nowadays, it is not as easy to decipher what makes a living space a conservatory, orangery or extension. Your living space can be a combination of anything you want it to be, so the answer is not black and white. Previously, to be considered a conservatory an installation would need to be predominantly glass with a glass roof and walls. This has changed and now many customers are requesting a conservatory but opting for a tiled roof for a more pleasant temperature year round, and dwarf walls for increased insulation.
Typically, there is much more brickwork involved in an orangery than a conservatory. The aluminium pillars and brickwork add to a heightened sense of privacy and warmth, creating a deluxe feel. Orangeries will often consist of a pelmet around the roof, adding to the energy efficiency of the roof. As for the style, it can be completely adapted to your taste. Choose a glass lantern, solid tiled roof or go for something completely different!
