What is an Orangery?

When you start to look at any kind of extension or conversion you will undoubtedly come across the term ‘orangery’ more than a few times. No doubt this will lead to some confusion, as to most people an orangery looks just like conservatory, but there are a few differences, which are definitely worth taking note of.

The roots or orangeries are kind of given away in the name. Between the 17th and 19th century the wealthy elite liked to have, and grow, citrus fruit. Obviously, the climate in the UK is less than ideal for growing such fruit. So a greenhouse type room was needed, which led to the construction of the first orangeries.

Conservatories on the other hand were created as an offshoot of orangeries. The main difference is, from a practical stand point, that conservatories were created for the protection of herbs and shrubs, rather than fruit.

Origins aside, the main difference between the two now are in their design features. Conservatories, on the whole, are attached to the house, and are meant to be an extension of the home. As such, they will carry the décor of the home through to them for consistency. Whereas orangeries can be both attached and detached from the home.

Also, orangeries are typically made from timber, and carry with them an air of luxury that is not often found in conservatories. Part of this is that orangeries are meant to be standalone rooms. They have their own design and decoration, and their own specific purpose.

Unlike the structures of old, using modern technology a conservatory or orangery can be used and enjoyed all year round due to their heat retaining properties.
