Are you contemplating between building a conservatory or an orangery? Then it’s important to note some key differences.
Firstly, conservatories are constructed from glass panels, with the only brickwork being maybe a dwarf wall for the window frames to sit on. Orangeries have a more solid look and feel to them than conservatories.
Secondly, the ‘edges’ of an orangery (where a conservatory roof meets with the top of the side window frames) are not visible from ground level, as the roof is inset.
Lastly, the most visible difference is in the roof construction. An orangery will tend to have a flat roof with a glazing lantern placed centrally within it, allowing the room below to flooded with natural light.
At Frames Conservatories Doors (FCD) we specialise in supplying and installing a full range of new windows, doors, conservatories and extensions. We can help you decide whether an orangery or one of our other options in conservatories is the right fit for you.
