Should I Choose an Orangery or a Home Extension?

22 May 2020

If you are considering adding an orangery or extension to your home, you are probably looking to add some extra living space.

Whether it is extending your home for a new open-plan kitchen or creating somewhere to relax or entertain guests, C&W Direct can help.

We are the leading provider of orangeries and conservatories in Stafford, Cannock and Lichfield, which is why we have put together this handy guide to give you all the information you need in one place.

What is the difference between an orangery and an extension?

An orangery is a unique mix of a traditional conservatory and a home extension, made with brick-built pillars. Orangeries are typically designed with a raised glass roof structure which floods your living space with natural light.

Although it may seem a single-storey extension with a flat roof is more solid in stature, you will need to use the right interior lighting or this space can come across as dark and uninspiring.

Which One Looks Better?

Instead of thinking of an orangery as a garden room that is tacked onto the back of your home, think of it as a natural extension to your home.

Orangeries from C&W Direct are available in a wide range of traditional and contemporary styles which can be completely bespoke to match the look of your property. This allows you to have a roof style that complements your home’s interior and exterior appearance.

Whilst a traditional extension can be tied in seamlessly with the right brick match, its flat roof or tiled roof will not boast the same appeal as an orangery.

Homeowners we have worked with in the past have chosen to have an orangery built instead of an extension due to the stunning glazed roof they provide which becomes a stunning focal point for their home.
