What are the design considerations for orangery bedrooms?
There are a number of design and construction considerations to take into account when designing and installing a new orangery. But if this orangery will be used as a bedroom, you will need to consider specific design choices. These include:
- The type of glass
- The shape of the orangery
- The amount of light
The type of glass for orangery bedrooms
The type of glass you use for any orangery should be something every home owner or property developer takes into account. You can use glass in a more traditional style, with a grid pattern, to suit a period property for example. For an orangery bedroom, you will need glass that can help keep the space warm in the winter, and you will also need to consider methods of cooling in the summer. Evening and night conditions can be different to those during the day, and you will need to stay warm, while also preventing overheating and condensation. This is something an expert team, like us here at Inspired Spaces, can help with.
The shape of the orangery bedroom
Orangeries can be installed in a range of shapes and sizes, depending on the available space. For an orangery bedroom, a rectangular or L shaped orangery can provide more space than a hexagonal addition, and this can be beneficial. You will have to consider the furniture and layout of the bedroom during the planning stage, so that you can choose the shape and style that will be functional, as well as visually effective.
Natural light and orangery bedrooms
Orangeries are known for being light, bright and airy. While this can create a stylish and attractive space in your home, the light can be a potential issue for orangery bedrooms. You could consider avoiding the glass roof and instead opting for a solid roof, with roof lanterns. This can help control the natural light from above for a more refreshing sleep. You can also consider the type of blinds or curtains that should be used too.
