Orangeries are the perfect way of expanding your living space in Colchester, Essex or Suffolk. They are considered to be the middle-ground between a house extension and a conservatory, taking the best elements of both and forming a unique hybrid. The design takes inspiration from its classic 14th century namesake – grand greenhouse extensions used to grow fruit.
Orangeries use more significant areas of brickwork than conservatories. However, a double glazed roof ensures that plenty of light is still able to filter into the extension. The homeowner gets an increased standard of home privacy, while still enjoying the light and airy feel you would expect with a glazed conservatory. Orangeries provide the best of both worlds.
As a result, they can serve almost any purpose. Dining areas or social spaces are our Essex and Suffolk customers’ most popular choices, but many orangeries we install are used as home offices, gyms, children’s playrooms or are converted in open plan kitchens. They can become a focal point within the home and can, therefore, help the rest feel more spacious. Create your dream orangery today using our online design tool and request your free quote!
Our orangeries will be designed bespoke to your exact tastes. We will match the brickwork to the rest of your home, ensuring sleek, unified aesthetics throughout. You can then select the colour of the uPVC framework to whatever you think would best complement your home.
Get in touch with us today if you would like to hear more about our other customisation options. These include a choice of cornices, crestings, finials and more.
You get the selection of two different roof systems when you choose 1st Homes. Our orangeries are available with a hipped, glazed roof or with a flat roof and lantern combination. You can choose the option that best suits your home’s styling, as well as your budget.
An edge to edge Ultrasky roof allows the maximum amount of natural light to filter in and provides aesthetics that are closer to that of a conservatory. With a flat roof and in-built roof lanterns, you get an extra layer of home privacy without compromising on the light and airy feel.
Both roof systems are fitted with double glazing and come with the option of a durable aluminium framework. Our orangeries and their roofs are fully weatherproof, having been engineered to the predicted windspeeds of your Essex or Suffolk postcode.
