What are the considerations when extending your living space with an orangery?
If you are planning to extend your orangery living area, what should you consider? Well, there are several things to bear in mind, including:
- The shape of the orangery- while an orangery extension can be a rectangular or square shape depending on the space, you can also create an L shaped orangery too. Whichever orangery shape you choose, make sure that this flows with your existing living space, to create a practical space for relaxing and unwinding.
- Heating- if your new orangery will be an extension to your living area, you will need to think about heating, especially within the extension area. An orangery can make use of underfloor heating, or more traditional heating methods, like radiators, to maintain a pleasant temperature in your home all year round. This is supported with the installation of thermally efficient glass, designed to provide a high level of thermal installation to your orangery.
- Outside access- with an orangery, you can choose to install bi-fold doors. These create a stunning wall of glass at the front of your orangery, that can be folded, and then slid across to open the whole wall space out. This is very practical for the summer months and large celebrations, and it can offer an incredible amount of natural light, all year round, as well as stunning views. Bi-fold doors are also very safe and secure, with multiple locking points.
