What are the most important considerations for planning an orangery?
There are several important things to consider when planning and designing an orangery. These include:
- Planning permission
- External design and aesthetic
- Size and shape
Planning permission and orangeries
For most orangeries, planning permission will not be required, as this will fall into the remit of permitted development, as long as:
- The orangery takes up no more than half of the original land around the house
- The orangery is lower than the highest part of the roof
- The orangery does not extend the rear wall of the house by more than four metres for an attached house or six for a detached.
External design and aesthetics of your orangery
From the materials used, to the design of the glass, and the brickwork, there are a number of external factors that can be important to consider early in the planning process. This can help determine the overall style of your new extension, and whether or not this suits or compliments the rest of your property.
Size and shape of your orangery
Determining how large you need your orangery to be, and the shape of the orangery itself is an important factor that should be decided early on. The shape and size can have an effect on the overall layout and design of the orangery. It can also effect the cost and the scale of the extension work required, as well as the practicalities of the room itself. This will be determined by the size and shape of the outdoor land being built on.
Layout of your orangery
Finally, you should also decide on the most effective layout for your new orangery. This should be determined by the size and shape of the floor plan, as well as your requirements for the purpose of the new space.
