Should I Choose a Conservatory or an Orangery?

Having either a conservatory or orangery is a great option for creating more living space. If you're asking yourself the question above, then don't worry; we're here to help you answer it! Read on and find out more about the two.

Conservatories

The conservatory was born out of the design of the orangery, but with more glazing for other plants to grow in cooler climates. However, as time went on, the conservatory started to be used for other reasons.

  • Typically, there's less brickwork involved in a traditional conservatory. 
  • A glazed roof is often the case for traditional conservatories.
  • There's a few popular designs for conservatories; including the Edwardian, the Lean-to and the victorian. 

Orangeries 

Believe it or not, orangeries date back as early as the 15th and 16th century in Italy, Europe to be specific; with elaborate structures to protect orange trees and other citrus trees from the colder months of the year.

  • Orangeries share more in relation with home extensions. 
  • Unlike a conservatory, there's plenty more brickwork/solid structure involved in an orangery.
  • Orangeries are popular for different rooms in your home such as a kitchen or dining room.

As you can see, there's plenty of reason for choosing both. The decision however, is entirely down to personal preference. The good thing is, here at G King Construction, we can assist with the installation of both orangery projects and conservatory projects.
