Top 10 Orangery Designs For Year Round Enjoyment

Bespoke orangery exterior Somerset

The advent of modern glazing technologies has long since rendered the concept of older conservatory style extensions as “being too hot in the Summer and too cold in the Winter” as redundant. Modern orangeries and garden rooms are designed for year round enjoyment and so much more than just Summer or seasonal rooms.

David Salisbury’s orangery designs become an integral part of our customers’ homes and the room they spend the most time in. In this article, we’ll take a look at 10 designs that really capture the essence of year round enjoyment.

Orangeries look good on video!

Whilst this year’s photoshoot season has undoubtedly been affected by the obvious impact of the Coronavirus, one of the advantages of trying to capture the design and influence of an orangery is that it can achieved, in the main, from outside.
