As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about the benefits of an orangery home extension.
What is an orangery?
An orangery is a home extension that usually makes use of just one full glass wall, or two. This can fill your home extension with light, and by using thermally efficient glass, can ensure that your room is not too hot in the summer, or too cold in the winter, a common problem with conservatories. An orangery can also much larger in the size, creating space for any entire kitchen or living area room.
What can a new orangery bring to your property?
So, how can choosing an orangery home extension transform your property? Well, this type of home extension can provide a number of benefits, including:
- Visual curb appeal- an orangery generally has a striking and stunning visual design, which is sure to increase the curb appeal of your home.
- Perfect for traditional and contemporary properties- because only one wall is made of glass, even traditional properties can make effective use of an orangery, with the walls being built in the same natural stone, or brick as the rest of the property. Contemporary properties on the other hand can really bring out the metals and glass in contrast with the building, for a stunning effect.
- Increase the value- adding an orangery increases the space in your home, and can help you create a stunning open plan living space. All while increasing the external curb appeal of the property. This has the effect of significantly increasing the property value.
