Five Uses for an Orangery08/01/2015
Orangeries have been around since the 17th century and originate from the Renaissance gardens of Italy. They were built in the grounds of lavish stately homes but not just as a symbol of wealth but to be admired for their exquisite architecture and exotic fruits and plants they would hold.
Over the years orangeries have carried this misconception that they are only for the wealthy and should belong in the grounds of a prestigious home. We want to dispel this myth and show you the benefits of investing in an orangery.
If you're looking for a more spacious home, there's no need to consider moving home but instead expand the one you have by adding an orangery to your humble abode. Orangeries have a lot of great qualities and can be used all year round, not just for the summer sun and family BBQs.
Using an orangery as a kitchen is a perfect solution to expanding the most important room of the house. Due to the lantern roofs orangeries have it can provide a lot of light and create a relaxed atmosphere for one of the busiest rooms in the house. Using an orangery for a kitchen also makes the room more appealing to be in rather than it being seen as a place to prepare meals.
Why not make an orangery into a dining area creating a unique eating experience for your friends and family. With the vast amount of light you'll received all year round and with a good heating system, this room can be used 365 days of the year.
Want some peace and quiet after a long day at work? Why not make your orangery a perfect place to relax with your favourite comfy furniture and curl up with a good book. Using an orangery as a sitting room is an excellent idea and can be fashioned to your own taste and style. A sitting room is one of the most used rooms of a house, so why not make it a bit more special.
In this day and age it's very popular for people to now work from home and using an orangery for an office is a great solution. Free up one of your bedrooms and use an orangery to do your work instead. Orangeries provide a lot of light and potentially good views, depending on where you are building of course. Therefore your job doesn't need to be stressful when you can choose to work in a peaceful and spacious environment.
We can't forget the reasons of why the orangery was invented – so how satisfying would it be to grow your own fruit and flowers, bringing the outside in and relaxing with a nice G&T.
If you have been thinking about investing in an extension then we would highly recommend the multi-purpose orangery. For more information please contact us on 01953 600505 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
