Ideas For Designing Your Orangery

23 May 2023

In the past, orangeries were used to grow citrus fruit and exotic plants, similar to a greenhouse. Fast forward to today, orangeries may not be used to grow oranges or lemons anymore, but they do bring in as much sunlight as possible. 

When it comes to deciding on what design of orangery you want, it’s important to consider all your options and pick the design that best suits your home. As an orangery supplier and installer ourselves, we thoroughly enjoy the designing process of installing an orangery with our customers. In this article, we’ll discuss a few design ideas for a Pinterest-inspired orangery!

1) Traditional

The traditional orangery is ideal for any homeowners who want a classic extension that blends nicely with the rest of their traditional home. The roof is designed to allow sunlight into the room, whilst the brick pillars are designed to give the room a more solid feel. The interior height of this orangery design gives the look of higher and airier ceilings.

2) LivinRoom

For a multi-functional home extension, the Ultraframe LivinRoom orangery offers both a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. It could also function as the main family or living room. Featuring a well-supported Ultraframe classic roof and a well-built internal framework. Once plastered, it gives a perfect perimeter ceiling all the way around. This LivinRoom design can be incorporated with conservatories styles such as Ewardian, Victorian, Lean-to and Gables. As a modern touch, spotlights and speakers can be built into the perimeter roof, so homeowners can customise their new living space. External cornice aluminium guttering can be added to give the full visual effect of the LivinRoom orangery.

3) LivinRoof

As the first roofing system on the market to give the flexibility o fcombining solid and glazed roofing seamlessly, the Ultraframe LivinRoof design allows homeowners to expand their living space and improve thermal performance, resulting in a hybrid orangery that can be used during the scorching summers to the freezing winters and everything in between. Its unique roofing system is manufactured from insulated composite external panels and Kingspan slab insulation, which are strong, sturdy and thermally efficient.

4) Loggia

With the Ultraframe Loggia design, your options are endless. You can add multiple wide or narrow columns to sit on or off plinths, topped with classic cornice guttering outside. They can also be internally insulated with LivinRoom, heated by radiant panel heaters and illuminated by LivinLight. The Loggia design can also help you reduce heating costs as the integrated electric panel radiant heaters produce more than half the heating you’ll need during the winter, so you won’t be faced with a huge heating bill. This premium orangery design not only helps you save on heating costs but also truly gives you the freedom to put your own stamp on every aspect of the orangery.
