Important considerations for creating a gardener’s perfect orangery
To make sure your orangery is well designed with your main passion in mind, you should consider:
- Space for plants- overwintering some plants inside can be a great way to protect them from heavy frost and snow, and ensure that they flourish the rest of the year. At the same time, seedlings and young plants can require the protection of an indoor space to allow them to develop in safety. When planning your orangery, you can be sure to create a dedicated space for your plants, so you don’t have to spend cold winter or spring mornings in the potting shed. Instead, you can take care of your plants with a nice warm cup of tea, in a stunning orangery.
- Type of flooring- if you will regularly be taking plants, soil and fertilizer in and out of the orangery, choosing the right type of flooring will be important. You will need flooring that can be easily cleaned, and will not stain. It will also need to be waterproof too. Tiled flooring can be a very effective solution. You can even choose timber effect floor tiling to create the visual impression of a solid, hardwood floor.
- Bi-Fold doors- to give your orangery the finishing touch, you should consider bi-fold doors, these are doors that fold in half, and slide along to the edge to open out an entire wall of your orangery into the garden. Not only can this ensure full, panoramic garden views, even when closed, but it can also be practical too. These open up further and wider than other types of doors, so its easier to transport items, plants and furniture in and out as required.
