Orangeries were originally places where orange trees would be grown. Nowadays, they’re the most glamorous alternative to the conservatory, offering the perfect blend between a traditional home extension and a conservatory. In contrast to the conservatory, which uses a higher proportion of glass, the orangery includes a large amount of brickwork, perfect for when you want an extension that looks and feels like it has always been a part of your home.
The modern-day orangery uses brickwork, ornate pillars and walls. It also traditionally houses a large, plastered, flat roof with a roof lantern. They become filled with light during the daytime, especially when you choose a glass-to-floor orangery due to the length of the glazing and slenderness of the frames. They can act as anything from a lounge to a playroom for the kids and will add financial value in terms of the resale price of your home.
Insufficient home extension security is responsible for hundreds of break-ins into homes. There will be no such issues when you fit a Swish conservatory or orangery as they come fitted with tamper-proof, sophisticated locking systems. The durability of the frame and the glass included in the design will also provide further obstacles for any wannabe thief to overcome, obstacles that are likely to thwart their efforts.
Attaching a home extension to your home will strengthen security.
We appreciate that colour choice is a key deciding factor in whether people choose Swish or head for a rival home extension specialist. We have responded by producing one of the most eclectic selection of colours for conservatories and orangeries that you will find anywhere. Prepare to be mesmerised by the diversity of our woodgrain effects, accent colours and sparkling shades. With so much choice at your disposal, finding a colour that makes its mark is an inevitability.
Give your home extension an exciting identity that gets people talking.
When a home extension gets too cold in winter and unbearably hot in summer, responsibility lies with the roofing system. A thermally efficient roof covering will appropriately regulate the internal temperature throughout the year so that you can use your conservatory or orangery in guaranteed comfort as and when you choose. When adding a solid roof to a conservatory, remember that you can incorporate roof windows into the design to make up for any loss of light.
Choose a roof that complements the tiles on the roof of your house.
The majority of conservatory and orangery installations can go ahead without an application for planning permission needing to be made due to them being classed as a “permitted development”. If your proposed extension exceeds the rules and regulations set out for “permitted development” status, Swish will take responsibility for contacting your local planning department and do everything required to get your installation the green light.
We’re more than happy to do the hard work.
For your home extension to be successfully utilised as a lavish living area or delectable dining room it helps to accessorise the space accordingly. Considerations may include everything from the type of flooring chosen to a means of illuminating the space once darkness falls. When striving to use your conservatory or orangery as a connecting link between your home and garden, why not incorporate patio, French or bi-folding doors into the design.
