When decorating your home, every little corner is important. Finding the right balance between colours and materials is the key when trying to create a peaceful space.

Socialising within the home is becoming ever more popular, whether its dining with family or having friends over for a dinner party, having additional space for relaxing and entertaining can be achieved with an orangery. An orangery is a bespoke structure which is designed to fit onto an existing property.

Orangeries can have many uses, they can be used to increase the size of a kitchen or additional living space similar to a consevatory, the main difference is that a conservatory roof is connected directly to the side-framing, whereas an orangery has a flat roof element

Orangeries UK are built with a perimeter roof and suspended Roof Lantern / glass lantern. Both orangeries and conservatories may have brickwork sections or pillars as part of the side structure, but it is more common for these to be a significant part of the structure within an orangery. The windows and doors can be tailored to fit in with the existing property using modern Upvc or traditional Timber Windows and doors. Another nice feature is to fit Bifold Doors which can provide access to the garden, this can give the feeling of being outdoors whilst sitting in comfort of indoor space.
