Orangeries date back to the 17th century so they were around well before the conventional conservatory gained its popularity, the conservatory has to some extent lessened during the past few years.
What is an Orangery designed for? Well, it was designed originally to protect and house expensive imported plants and fruit from the frosts of the colder months in the U.K an Orangery had large windows set in a building made of stone or brick, thus affording the protection and sunlight required for the plants to flourish.
A modern day Orangery keeps the traditional and unique character of centuries past whilst using the latest technologies in building and glass innovation to improve the Orangery into an elegant and stylish room to be enjoyed all year round.
Orangeries are the perfect solution for those customers who would like some extra space to relax and enjoy views of their garden throughout the seasons and who prefer a more classic style than that of the modern conservatory. At Glass Design and Build we pride ourselves on the superb range of Orangeries which are available and designed specifically to each customer’s individual taste, thus creating truly unique bespoke Orangeries that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
With french doors in the entrance to your Orangery you can enjoy a flood of daylightthroughout your home.
When designing your orangery we will discuss the many style options with you as well as the preferred materials of choice. All the materials we use such as timber, aluminium and even uPVC on our more standard ranges can be spray painted with a coloured finish to match any existing paint work, a classic and very popular Duck egg blue, mint green or vintage cream, which ever your preference to harmonize with the colour scheme of your home.
