Best Uses For An Orangery

If you wish to add style and character to your home, then an orangery is the perfect solution. An orangery provides versatile space that you can use all year round. Orangeries can be used as an extension to make existing rooms more functional or transformed into a brand new room.

One of the main advantages of a bespoke orangery is that the structure can be built to suit your needs, so you can be provided with an orangery that is suitable for whatever purpose you have in mind.

Using Your Orangery as a Living room.

An orangery can be used to extend an existing living room or to create a brand new stylish living area. The addition of features such as bi folding doors or folding sliding doors will enable you to connect your orangery with the outdoors in summer.

You can fill your orangery with exotic plants and even consider combining it with a living area. Extra features such as blinds may be needed to provide plants with shading and to keep your orangery at a suitable temperature in summer.
