What is the Difference Between a Conservatory and an Orangery?
Many homeowners confuse the two of these rooms, but there is a notable difference between the two. Our team at Adam Window Centres is happy to sit with you and go over the distinctions which make conservatories and orangeries unique and we can also help decide which is best for your property. Whether you have design ideas or not, we can work with you to develop the blueprints to improve your home’s value and your experience while living there. The difference between the two is simple, but dramatically changes the perspective and possibility for design. We build conservatories using windows on all three sides and a complete glass roof. Orangeries with have a roofed perimeter where you can install a lighting system with a glass system.
Advantages of Conservatories and Orangeries
Both are additions to your living area and bring advantages to homes by adding more natural light and square footage. You also design a fun room to use to read a book, paint, or take a light afternoon nap. They can even be a beautiful space to begin your home garden thanks to all the allowed sunlight. Whether raining or sunny, you can enjoy seeing the outside by being entirely surrounded by windows. Both options bring with them different advantages so we have listed these below to help you begin deciding which one would be best for your space:
What are the Advantages of a Conservatory?
This add-on offers a unique way to get more natural light into your home, which means you can get more sunlight to your plants. Since there are only windows used in the construction of conservatories, you will have unlimited light when the sun is shining. Construction consists of either a half-brick wall with glass on top or windows from the floor to a complete glass ceiling. You will also see the value added to your home because of the added space as many prospective homeowners will love having a conservatory attached to their new house. They are also more energy-efficient and, on average, more affordable than orangeries because of the materials used in the construction.
What are the Advantages of an Orangery?
While a conservatory can be wholly built from windows, orangeries give you more options in terms of style. You still get a fantastic amount of sunlight through the large window walls; we use brick to build a half wall with window walls for the other half. There is also a perimeter roof surrounding a glass ceiling allowing more room for skylight. You can design much more with a plethora of different colours and materials in the brick and roofing system. You also still get all the benefits of getting value added to your home by creating a brand-new space from relaxation, creativity, and hosting. More square footage and a complexly new room to add to your home’s resume.
