Why an orange(ry) is the perfect stocking filler!

If you don’t know what to put on your Christmas list or you want to enjoy opening other presents in a beautiful new living space, then an orangery is the perfect solution (and slightly more exciting than the traditional orange in your stocking!)

Half extension, half conservatory

Orangeries are versatile living spaces. They boast the combined features of extensions and conservatories because they are partially glazed and constructed with solid pillars. This creates a room that is cosier than a conservatory, but one that still optimises the influx of natural light into your home.

Traditional conservatories are sometimes only used in the Summer. Orangeries can be used all year round, thanks to the way that they make even large spaces feel cosy. In effect, they create a brand new room for your home, making Christmas entertaining, family visits or even just relaxing easier.

Enjoy your orangery even when the frost sets in

The reason why an orangery can be used all year round is generally down to its thermal performance. Whereas dated glazed extensions have poor energy efficiency and lose heat, orangeries made with modern uPVC or aluminium are effective in maintaining temperatures, whether you are turning the thermostat up in Winter, or want increased ventilation in Summer.

By not being susceptible to the extremes of British weather, orangeries can otherwise be seen as a bespoke new extension that lacks bulky features and instead boasts an elegant design. This makes them a suitable addition to any property, however traditional or contemporary.
