Orangeries are similar to Victorian or Edwardian conservatories. They are however considered to be more elegant in style and innovation. They feature rectangular floor plans which allow them to maximise on internal space. Originally, orangeries were preserved for rich Europeans between the 17th-19th centuries. They were used to grow citrus fruits like lemons and oranges hence the name orangeries. Orangeries were common in manor houses and palaces. They allowed residences to grow citrus fruits throughout the year especially during harsh European winters.
Today’s orangeries serve a variety of purposes. Today’s orangeries also have less space for growing citrus fruits and more space for relaxing. Orangery design has evolved so much over the years resulting in more stylish, classic designs with modern benefits such as energy efficiency. Orangeries can assume many styles and designs. For instance, it is possible to get orangeries which come with internal soffits capable of hosting down-lighting for added aesthetics as well as creating a contemporary feel.
Modern day orangeries also come with numerous connecting door options i.e. bi-fold doors which connect orangeries to homes perfectly creating a perfect space that lends itself to existing building work seamlessly. It is also important to note that you can customise your orangery to meet your personal tastes and preferences as well as your home’s character.
