Important tips for enjoying your orangery in the summer
To get the most benefit from your orangery during the summer months there are a number of things you should consider. These include:
- Keep the space cool- all of our orangeries here at Inspired Spaces are designed to be fully thermally efficient. This means that in the winter months, the orangery doesn’t lose heat, and instead stays warm and cozy. But it also means that in the summer months, a thermally efficient orangery will also stay cool, despite being a glass building exposed to the sun. However, it may still be necessary to take further measures to cool the space, especially on some of the hottest days of the year. Opening the orangery doors and windows can create a much cooler airflow in the space, and this is one of the advantages of choosing bi-fold doors. These are doors that can fold in half and slide across to fully open an entire orangery wall. Aluminium roof lanterns can be equally effective, allowing you to open the roof windows for additional breeze.
- Choose light coloured furniture- dark furniture, especially dark leather seating can quickly become too hot in the summer months. Replacing this with light coloured fabric seating can make a big difference to your enjoyment of the space.
- Celebrate with friends and family- with local restrictions and lock-downs easier, this summer will be the perfect time to reconnect with family and friends. And a stunning orangery is the perfect setting. This opens up directly into your garden for stunning views and a large space for entertaining guests. This is when an orangery is really shines.
- Spend time with nature– the beautiful British summer is a season like no other and your orangery could be the perfect garden room to work with your plants and provide a bridge from the inside to the outside of your property. An orangery space can be used for seedlings and potted plants that are just establishing.
