Who can blame them as the orangery is without a doubt one of the most luxurious forms of home extension available today, the perfect blend between a traditional brick extension and bespoke conservatory or sunroom.
At Mitchell Glass, we supply orangeries in 3 different types of building material:
If you have very little awareness of the orangery, we can tell you everything you need to know about it.
The orangery originates from Italy and was first developed in the 17th Century. Traditionally the preserve of wealthy landowners, they would use it to house and grow citrus trees.
It was in the 19th Century that they began to be constructed with an impressive glazed roof which helped to bring further natural sunlight into the extension.
Back then they didn’t provide the standard of insulation that they do now and that came as improvements in design and insulation were made.
A little smaller than the very first orangeries, a contemporary orangery still offers a significant volume of space and gives you a light, airy atmosphere that you can enjoy however you like in all weathers.
A wise decision as you will forever be living a life of luxury when you have an orangery that you can head into whenever you fancy experiencing opulent surroundings.
