When it comes to creating your orangery, there are a number of important considerations to take into account. From the external design of the space itself, to the purpose of the new room, designing a new orangery can be a challenge. One of the first decisions to make is what shape of orangery you should install. But what are the different shape options for your new orangery? Well, here at Inspired Spaces, we are Manchester’s leading conservatory, sun room and orangery experts. We install a range of high quality, professional orangery options.

What are the different shape options for your new orangery?
There are a number of different shape options for your new orangery. These include:
- Rectangular orangeries
- L-shaped orangeries
- Hexagonal orangeries
Choosing a rectangular orangery
A rectangular orangery is one of the most common types of orangery to install. This classic design can have a flat or a pitched roof, or even a gable fronted design. Either way, the rectangular orangery is a home extension that can suit both contemporary, new build properties, and those that are more traditional in style and external design. These are often the easiest shape to install, and can offer a lot of internal floor space for their size and shape.
Choosing an L-Shaped orangery
An L-shaped orangery provides the same additional rectangular space, as a rectangular orangery. But an L-shaped orangery also has an extra, shorter rectangular space too. This can create a short corridor or hall from the extension to the rest of your property. Alternatively, the shorter space can be at the end of the orangery creating a stunning porch or welcome area, leading to the outdoor garden space. This shape of orangery is only suitable for some properties with enough outdoor space to use, but it is the orangery shape that generally adds the most usable space to your home. This is also an effective option for orangery kitchens, where a small but separate area leading to the outdoor space could be more beneficial.
Choosing a hexagonal orangery
Hexagonal orangeries are more traditional in nature, and usually associated more with conservatories than orangeries. However, a well designed hexagonal orangery can be a stunning addition to your property, and create a stunning focal point. This generally adds the least amount of space to your home, and is used for an additional living or seating area, or even a home study, rather than a kitchen or bedroom.
