A bespoke orangery can be built to perfectly complement your house. They are highly insulated, so you can open them to your home without losing heat. They often contain a kitchen, which becomes the centre of your home. The extra space creates a great place for entertaining friends and family. Adding an orangery extension to your house is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors while staying in the house.
Can you put a kitchen in an orangery?
The design of your orangery is dependent on several factors. First of all, you should consider the height of the ground floor. If the orangery is being constructed above ground level, the ceiling height should be around 2.4m (8”). It should also have windows with a height of around 0.3m above the ceiling.
Apart from serving a functional purpose, an orangery is aesthetically pleasing and can be used for a variety of purposes within the home. Most homeowners use them as an extra lounge, second dining room or primary social space. Others use them as home offices. With a variety of uses, you can choose a bespoke orangery that perfectly suits your home and lifestyle.
Orangeries were traditionally used to grow exotic plants and fruits. They are typically clad in brick and have a north facing wall. A high-quality orangery will protect your plants from the elements while adding elegance and charm to your home. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, orangeries are also highly insulated, allowing you to open them and enjoy your outdoor space all year round.
