Many Reasons To Build Orangery Extensions

An orangery extension usually has floor-to-ceiling windows with a lantern style roof. They are often more substantial than a conservatory, but are designed in order to blend in subtly with the existing property. A major benefit associated with modern orangery addition (also known as moderne oranjerie toevoeging in Dutch language) is the reduced sunlight and additional warmth it provides, which makes it ideal for year-round use. 

It creates more space through opening up your downstairs living area with the addition of an orangery. It will transform your home immediately and give you much more usable space, this will have a positive knock-on effect on the other downstairs rooms as they will also feel larger than they actually are.

Modern orangery extension floods your home with natural light and airy feel. An orangery combines all the practicalities of an extension, such as added privacy and insulation but with the light and airy feel of a conservatory. The modern glazing technology used can actually reduce the glare from natural light.

The main design concept of an orangery is to have a centrally-located roof lantern surrounded by a large, plastered flat roof. This provides stability and is an ideal way to integrate it into the existing property.
