What is the difference between an orangery and a conservatory? This is perhaps one of our most frequently asked questions: as the leading manufacturing of bespoke wooden orangeries in the UK, we are well placed to explain the key features of a modern orangery.
Whilst orangeries have been around for many hundreds of years, it is the advent of modern glazing techniques that have turned what was formerly an addition to a stately home into what is now a wonderful living space, blending a touch of luxury with all year round enjoyment.
An orangery has a solid, perimeter flat roof with one or more roof lanterns. A conservatory, by contrast, is characterised by a fully glazed roof and usually a higher proportion of glass in its overall construction. Whichever type of extension you choose, David Salisbury will create a bespoke design which will transform your home.
David Salisbury's orangeries combine award-winning designs with precision engineering. We invest in the very latest technologies, whether this be 3D drawing software (to show precisely what the new orangery will look like) through to hi-tech joinery machinery for our factory, to ensure our customers enjoy the very best timber orangeries available on the market.
A bespoke orangery will not only create additional space, it will add significant value to your home. Whether designed as an open plan, orangery kitchen extension or simply a room for you to relax and enjoy the views of your garden. Our orangeries bring our many thousands of customers closer to the outdoors, and flood their living area with glorious natural light.
Orangeries are frequently designed to incorporate a kitchen extension. The design characteristics of an orangery are perfect for incorporating essential features such as lighting and extraction – something that a conservatory will struggle to achieve. Often working alongside our partners Tom Howley Kitchens, we have become experts at designing orangery kitchen extensions.
Wooden orangeries create wonderfully versatile living spaces by opening up your home and letting in light. Open plan living remains a key trend for the home and an orangery will often combine the functionality of several rooms, from living to dining and from relaxation to entertainment.
Sit back, take in the views of your garden and imagine yourself sitting in your own David Salisbury orangery.
