Bring light and space to your home with an orangery
Orangeries, unlike conservatories, are generally more solid in structure. The integration of pillars made from brick, super insulated aluminium or engineered timber create a traditional feeling of grandeur. Typically, glass panelling makes up no more than 75% of the roof and 50% of wall space of the orangery.
While traditional orangeries were grand, ostentatious buildings used to grow citrus fruit trees, today they are the perfect answer from homeowners who wish to extend their homes and want more solidity to the structure than a conservatory, but less than a fully loaded single storey extension.Request a free broсhure

Frequently Asked Questions
Orangeries can be a light functional space and a more valuable addition to your
home than a Victorian conservatory or lean-to. Read more about how to choose an orangey for your home…
What is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery?
The line between orangeries and conservatories is somewhat blurred. However, orangeries are typically more robust structures and incorporate less glass in roofs and walls than conservatories, making for a more functional space.
What type of roof should I choose for my orangery
The design of orangery roofs is entirely dictated by our clients. Our orangery roofs are designed bespoke for each project and can be flat with glass panels, use lantern designs, incorporate internal pelmets around the ceiling or any number of bespoke specifications.
How much does an orangery cost?
Typically, orangeries are a larger investment than a conservatory as they are more structurally robust and provide a multi-use space for the home. As with most products, the price of an orangery is dependent on its size and the materials chosen for construction.
Do I need planning permission for an orangery?
In some cases, orangeries are exempt from planning permission however, planning permission for extensions such as orangeries is reliant on a number of factors. Existing extensions to the property, the intended size of the orangery, glazing and electrical fitting choices and how the orangery connects to the main home will all impact planning permissions.
Are orangeries secure?
As with all of the windows and doors designed by Timbertherm, our orangery doors and windows incorporate concealed multi-point locking systems for windows and multi-point espagnolette locks for French or bi-fold doors to keep your orangery and home secure.
Are orangeries thermally efficient?
All window and door sections are fully weather-proofed and can include double or triple glazing to create a thermally efficient space. Regardless of the type of windows and doors chosen for your orangery, we incorporate the latest technology to ensure it maintains pleasant indoor temperatures year-round.
