Orangery Extensions: What Is An Orangery?
An Orangery combines the practicalities of a conventional extension with the light and style of a conservatory.
A solid brick extension is designed to blend effortlessly with your home, (matching existing brickwork if desired) whilst a beautiful glazed roof gives you enhanced natural lighting.
Orangeries Are More Affordable
An affordable way to increase living space within the home, Orangeries are a lot cheaper to build than a single-story extension.
As more homeowners look to extend their property rather than sell, the Orangery is now seen as a great alternative to a full brick extension or conservatory.
Orangeries give you the extra room you’ve always dreamed of, giving you a luxury space to either sit, sleep, relax or entertain.
Bespoke Orangeries London
Orangeries can be tailored to your home and lifestyle. Your Orangery could feature bi-folding doors, giving you a seamless entrance to your garden, or it can feature skylights, underfloor heating and even a kitchen.
Your Orangery installer will design you an extension which is fit for purpose. After installation, you will have a stunning room to use all year round, whether that’s for a home gym, guest bedroom, home office or dining area.
Do You Need Planning Permission For An Orangery?
An Orangery is considered to be a permitted development so it is very unlikely you will need planning permission.
When You Need Planning Permission
- You live within a conservation area
- The extension isn’t ground level
- Your house has already been extended
- You have a terraced house

Kitchen extensions are a great way of improving your property and adding value. With many homeowners now preferring open-plan style rooms, the Orangery-kitchen extension has huge selling potential.
Having become the hub of the home, kitchens sell houses. A living/kitchen space which has been designed for family living, is one which will attract buyers.
An Orangery extension to your kitchen provides you with the additional space to have breakfast and dinner. An Orangery-kitchen will also give you enhanced natural sunlight, creating the perfect ambiance for your dining area.
Orangery Or Conservatory?
Compared to an Orangery, conservatories use minimal brickwork. They are more about enhancing garden views.
Orangeries have more brickwork and tend to be larger, more private spaces.
Both conservatories and Orangeries offer more light than a traditional extension but an Orangery provides better insulation and heat-control.
The Best of Both Worlds
The Orangery gives you the best attributes of a conservatory design and typical extension.
Their solid wall constructions gives you all year round comfort whilst their open glass ceiling allows you to benefit from lots of light.
They are perfect for South facing properties because they provide ample protection from the sun but will not overheat.
