Orangery design tips

  • Consider the function of your proposed orangery and what furniture you would like to have in it.
     
  • Remember that many of our customers remark ‘our new orangery has transformed the way we use the house, it has become our main room’. A new orangery might result in changing how you use existing rooms. 
     
  • If you want to fit sofas in your orangery, consider an orangery design that has French doors to one side, allowing space for a seating area. 
     
  • Dwarf walls are typically 600mm (8 brick courses) high, but if your garden slopes away why not have a low dwarf wall to provide an unrestricted view of the garden.
     
  • For a visually lighter structure, consider French doors with side lights. This door combination could have full height glass for an open feel.
     
  • Paint colour, there is no need to choose white! Do not worry if your windows are white, an orangery painted one of our beautiful colours will look stunning.
     
  • Interior finishes for your orangery. Consider the aspect of the orangery before choosing floor tiles or paint colours for the walls. A south facing aspect will be brightly lit, so deeper colours are suitable. For a northerly aspect choose lighter, warm colours to soften the light.
