We all want more space, but what if you don’t want to fully extend your home? An Orangery extension provides the perfect multi-functional space to entertain friends & family, whatever the weather. Specialising in the design and build of made-to-measure orangeries in the North West, our orangeries offer an inviting alternative to your typical conservatory.
Our team are highly skilled at matching the style of historic older properties or adding character to newer developments with precision, through expert orangery installation. Your home and outdoor space are beautifully unified with an orangery installation, especially if you integrate bi-folding, patio or french doors into the design.
What is the difference between an orangery and a conservatory?
The key distinction lies in their construction: orangeries are characterised by solid, full-height brick pillars, while conservatories predominantly feature large glass sections. While both have brick bases supporting double-glazed windows, an orangery’s glass walls make up less than half of its total wall area, compared to a conservatory’s minimum of 50% glass coverage. Orangeries also boast robust box-section pelmets, reducing the need for extensive plastering. For a closer look, feel free to visit our Bolton showroom.
What are the building Regulations for an Orangery?
Orangeries, similar to other conservatory types, are usually exempt from building regulation approvals if they are constructed at ground level and the floor area is less than 30m2. Key requirements include an external quality door separating the orangery from the main property, an independent heating system with separate temperature controls, and compliance of glazing and fixed electrical installations with relevant building regulations. The orangery must be attached to the existing property. For examples of our work, feel free to visit our website.
