What is an Orangery?
An orangery is a building or room with a glass roof, glazed windows, and doors. They are typically made of brick or stone. The roof tends to be built flat with a central lantern or skylight to allow in natural light, making them ideal for even growing citrus trees or other plants sensitive to cold weather.
Orangeries were first built in the 17th century in Europe. They were a symbol of wealth and prestige among the elite; Reaching the height of popularity in the 18th and 19th centuries. Orangeries can be found in the garden and on the ends of a large house. Those in the earlier centuries adored these beautiful rooms and felt that orangeries gave their mansions or homes a sense of elegance and timeless style.
While conservatories are still a great investment, they have declined in favour to orangeries in recent years, which has led to a huge rise in homeowners across Glasgow opting for contemporary orangeries instead. Combining balanced design with flawless functionality, a conservatory or an orangery extension is still the height of luxury and carries a breath of sumptuous elegance.
What’s The Difference Between Orangeries And Conservatories?
The main difference between orangeries and conservatories is the percentage of glazing. Orangeries typically have a solid roof that helps to insulate the space with a glazed parapet, while a conservatory has a fully glazed roof.
In addition, orangeries will often feature a dwarf wall or column that provides more insulation. This means that orangeries are also typically warmer than conservatories in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Orangeries and conservatories are popular choices for those in Glasgow who want to add an extension to their home filled with natural light. They can also be used as a place to relax, entertain guests or even grow plants!
