What is the History of the Orangery?
Originally a place for cultivating and growing citrus trees and plants, orangeries dates back to seventeenth-century Britain where they were primarily found in properties owned by wealthy landowners. In the nineteenth century, becoming a symbol of wealth was prevalent in British architecture and were simply rooms that benefitted from increased natural light for the homeowners to enjoy.
Found in famous palaces and estates such as Kensington Palace, the initial orangery design featured external stone and brickwork with a plastered interior consisting of decorative detail. Nowadays, orangeries are an alternative to the conservatory, using less glass and being utilised in several ways. The orangery is still popular and sought after home improvement solution from extending a kitchen, adding extra room for dining, or simply somewhere to relax.
Ventilation and Thermal Efficiency
Adding an orangery to your home enables you to make the most of your garden space, especially in the year's warmer months. Offering a connection between the indoors and outside, with orangeries you can open the doors to experience increased ventilation and stunning views. Your orangery works well to retain heat in the colder months and keep a consistent and comfortable temperature in your home. This improves the thermal efficiency of your property and helps to reduce your energy costs.
Orangeries are also an environmentally friendly home improvement solution, as your reliance on the central heating and artificial lighting reduces, so does your carbon footprint. Installing an orangery immediately grants you more living space, with the ability to open up an existing room and give your property a new lease of life. Available in a wide range of shapes and styles, you can create an orangery solution that perfectly complements your home, but does not compromise on its thermal performance.
