Orangeries and Conservatories

Orangeries

Orangeries are a sophisticated alternative to the traditional conservatory. Including more brickwork than a conservatory, orangeries are often built to look like a natural extension of the property.

Orangeries are the perfect addition to the home to create a formal dining room, extra living space for socialising, or even a playroom for children – the function can be open to any family’s needs.

Roof lanterns and skylights are often incorporated into orangeries, giving a luxurious feel and maximising on natural light, making it a real statement in the home. To incorporate these elements, it’s important to position an orangery suitably to make the most of the sunlight but be wary of south facing spaces as these can overheat easily.

To decorate your orangery, keep the interiors light and airy by choosing a trend that will complement the extra space in your home. Try the Japandi trend with its focus on minimalism and functionality, or the cosy coastal trend with its nautical stripes and dark wood elements.

Good quality blinds and curtains are also a great addition to orangeries to offer all-year round temperature control and privacy.

Conservatories

The traditional conservatory is an ideal way to create a beautiful living space, as well as adding extra functionality and value to your home.

Depending on your home and the size of your outdoor space you may only be able to opt for a smaller size conservatory, which means it’s vital to really make the most of the space available.

To do this, identify your primary use for the space. For example, will this be an extension of your living space and be used for socialising, or will it serve as a bright workstation to boost productivity?

If overloaded with furniture and heavy window dressings, conservatories can feel like a compact space. Opt for bright and light furnishings and keep the windows as bare as possible to take advantage of the natural light.

The biophilic trend works very well in conservatories too. This clean, crisp trend is all about bringing elements of nature and the outdoors in, with a focus on sustainable materials, earthy tones, and greenery. This is a great trend to maximise your conservatory by giving the illusion of an extended living space and garden.
