Conservatory or an Orangery? Which is best for your home?

Investing in a home extension can be a difficult process… but it doesn’t have to be!

We often get asked, which is better, a conservatory or an orangery? So, we decided to give you the difference between them, and then you can see what will work better for your home.

An orangery is made up from solid brick pillars, large glazed windows, brick or stone bases, a lantern roof creating a pelmet inside the orangery. Whereas a conservatory is a room made with a glass roof and walls providing a bright and airy feel to your home.

If an orangery is what you’re considering then it’s partial you understand an orangery is virtually maintenance free, the composition of the structure will never rot or warp once installed. The brickwork of your orangery will seamlessly fit onto your home and provides authentic period features including stone cills and fluted posts. An orangery features more brickwork than a traditional conservatory.

If you’re opting to invest in the traditional conservatory, you’ll have a light and airy room which just oozes with natural light. The inclusion of a Tyneside Home Improvement conservatory can increase the value of your home typically by around 5% giving you and your family more living space.
