This delightful orangery extension in Berkshire not only brought a new light-filled room to the back of this red brick property, it also achieved the customer’s key design brief: to allow a sense of enjoyment of the garden from inside the home.
A simple but highly-effective design by Nigel Blake, one of David Salisbury’s leading sales designers year in year out, this project underlines the point that good design need not necessarily be complicated.
As Nigel commented: “the client wanted an additional, light sitting room to cover a patio area off their lounge which would provide year round views of the garden.” As these photos above show, the brief was neatly fulfilled.
Measuring 4.7m long by 3.6m wide, at 17 metres square, this rectangular orangery is perfectly proportioned for this particular property, a hallmark of every design we undertake.
A roof lantern overhead allows in plenty of natural light, a typical feature of this style of orangery extension.
A pair of French doors provide convenient access to the garden and, whether open or not, provide a wonderful view straight down the lawn to the end of the garden.
The timber joinery in this orangery is painted in Eagle Sight, a popular shade of off-white with a hint of grey, from David Salisbury’s own unique colour palette.
For complete peace of mind, the project was delivered on a ‘turnkey' basis, meaning David Salisbury was responsible for all of the associated building works as well as the supply and installation of the orangery.
When the customer enquired about blinds for their orangery, we recommended our partners at Grants Blinds, who we have worked with for many years and are experts at designing bespoke shading solutions for orangeries and garden rooms. Grants designed fully automated and motorised French Pinoleum blinds, which were installed throughout the orangery.
The end result is an orangery which allows enjoyment of the garden, whatever the weather brings, whilst providing a beautifully complementary extension to the home. The owner’s dog looks rather pleased with the new addition too!
