If you are looking at adding space to your Raynes Park and London home, an orangery or an extension are great choices. When considering which one is best, take into consideration planning permission and budget as well as the intended use for the space.
What’s the main difference between an orangery and an extension?
An orangery is a cross between a conservatory and a traditional extension. Constructed using brick pillars, orangeries are normally designed to feature a raised glass roof structure that can flood the space with natural light and warmth.
What will the space be used for?
Orangeries are a versatile space that can be used as a kitchen, dining room, lounge, playroom, home gym or office. But if you need something bigger like an additional bedroom space or yoga studio, an extension may be the best option. Extensions also give homeowners more privacy, especially important in bedroom, offices and lounges.
Orangeries are available in a wide range of traditional and contemporary styles and are using to customise and make bespoke. Orangeries have a more flexible design than the traditional extension, which can be tied in seamlessly with your existing architecture.
