What are the important exterior design considerations for your orangery?
There are a number of different ways you can design the outside of your orangery to suit your requirements. For the perfect results you should consider:
- Contrasting or complementary design
- Visual design features
- Orangery material choices
Contrasting and complementary exterior orangery designs
When designing your orangery you have the option of creating a space that complements the exterior of your property, or contrasts with this. For example, for a period property you can choose between a highly contemporary aluminum frame design, or a design that is more closely based on classic orangery design with decorative frame designs and glass. Either option can add a striking extension to your home that is sure to raise the property value.
Creating external visual design features for your orangery
When designing your orangery you can also choose to add visual design features to the space. But this is not limited to the interior design, as the build itself can create a unique and stylish space that is sure to attract attention. External design features can include:
- Patterned and unusual glass- an orangery is a structure that is mostly glass, and this means that by using unusual glass with patterns or colours can be a straight forward way to create a stunning design feature.
- Decorative gable fronted design– A gable fronted orangery is a particular design style of orangery that involves a high sloping roof that reaches together at a centre point. On this design, the front frame panels, or the glass itself, can be decorative or patterned.
Orangery material choices for exterior design
When building a new orangery you can decide on a range of different materials including UPVX, timber or aluminium frames. One thing to note is that aluminium frames are often the best option practically, and these can be designed and finished to look like a timber frame surface.
