An Orangery – the Perfect Extension for Your Home

An Orangery- The Perfect Extension for Your Home

Are you looking to update your home but want something a bit different to the traditional options of a classic extension or a conservatory? More and more people across Bingley, Silsden, Ilkley, Baildon, Shipley, and Keighley are turning to Bingley Windows & Glass Co. Ltd to introduce a breathtaking orangery to their homes. Today, we take a look at orangeries in more detail and consider exactly how they make the ideal addition to any home.

How Does an Orangery Differ from a Conservatory?

An orangery is designed to be a continuation of your property, built from masonry and, therefore, blending in seamlessly with the existing materials of the house. Boasting tall windows and stunning lantern roofs, orangeries are a form of sun house and were originally used as a means of growing exotic fruit. An orangery truly is a luxurious addition to your home, introducing character and sophisticated via a structure that is durable and guaranteed to stand the test of time. It can be designed according to your specific tastes and requirements – including size, shape, and brick and window style – and provides that much needed extra room with elegance and stunning aesthetics.


When it comes to flexibility of use, an orangery extension is a perfect solution for your home. The versatility of an orangery really allows you to be as creative as when it comes to deciding how to use the space; some of the more popular choices include opening out your kitchen, establishing a home office, wowing and entertaining guests and visitors, and setting up a workout space. Those with green fingers can even go back to the traditional function of an orangery and use it as a place to grow plants and fruits.


The abundance of glass in an orangery extension ensures that you will benefit from plenty of light and sunshine, offering a light and comfortable space in which to relax. Perfect for use all year round, orangeries are energy-efficient and well-insulated for colder months whilst still keeping you cool on those hot summer afternoons. Although it may seem as though so much glass will make the orangery too bright on sunnier days, it is actually specially designed to control the amount of sunlight radiating throughout the room, thereby making it the ideal space to unwind without being overpowered by the effects of the sun.

Increased Property Value

The introduction of any extra space to a property is a very appealing prospect to potential new owners, and an orangery is no exception. Introducing such a stunning architectural feature is a great way to add value to your home, especially as it provides additional living space that can be used throughout the year. By investing in an orangery extension, you are investing in the long-term value of your property.
