Oak Orangery Provides Open Plan Living

This oak orangery project in Surrey has a number of distinctive features but, more than anything, created a lovely light, open plan living area.

The resulting additional space allowed the customer to extend their kitchen into the orangery, whilst the peninsula design provided a natural break from this part of the design into the living room area.

The comfortable sofa and favourite chair are ideally positioned to take in either the views of the garden or catching up with the latest on the wall-mounted TV.

Indeed the perimeter flat roof, a hallmark of an orangery (as opposed to a conservatory, which has a fully glazed roof) allowed the installation of ceiling mounted speakers to provide perfect surround sound.

Expertly designed by Eddie Spillane, one of David Salisbury’s most experienced sales designers, this type of orangery design features a tiled mansard roof with exposed oak rafters within the interior. The result is that natural, homely feeling that comes from an oak framed extension.

The lantern roof has been designed to join the host wall of the existing property, so as to maximise the amount of light coming into the room. 

The solid wall element of the orangery is red brick on the exterior, in order to complement the rest of the home, whilst on the inside, this allows for the installation of the TV.

The full height windows and doors – including French doors to allow convenient access to the patio area and outside – provide improved views of the garden from what is an elevated position.

This oak orangery kitchen extension has created an open plan living area that is now the hub of the home. Whether enjoying a relaxing breakfast around the island unit in the kitchen or a nice drink from the sofa with the TV on, this is now the room that is used most at home, whatever the time of year.
