Orangeries date back to the 1600′s and were used as a luxury extension to house citrus trees and shrubs that needed protection from frost during the winter months. They feature less glass than a conservatory, and are often supported by wider brickwork columns and blend with the existing property.
Our modern orangeries offer the benefits of a full extension at little more cost than a conservatory, yet allow the benefits of plenty of light. They are an ideal way to blend old and new spaces together and create a better use of the space available in your home. Common uses are a day and evening room, entertainment room, dining room, cinema and games room, gym, music room, and sport room to name a few.
Many new orangeries have lantern roofs which are visually appealing and save energy waste as opposed to a traditional pitched roof.
Orangeries can benefit from all the features of a conservatory such as self cleaning double glazed windows, cavity wall insulation, digital under-floor heating, fitted blinds, electric windows, and a wide range of fixtures and fittings.
An orangery adds value and prestige to your home, and can transform a small area into a space which is more in tune with the way you live. Creative UPVC will take care of every aspect of the build from the planning and construction to lighting, decorating, built in sound systems and cinema applications.
