The orangery has been popular now for hundreds of years. The precursor to the conservatory, orangeries provide a lot of benefits and there are numerous reasons people have them - here are ten of those reasons.
Of course, the orangery is a bright and sunny place due essentially to the number of windows and the amount of light that can get inside. It makes the perfect place to relax on a sunny evening and take time out from the world around you.
Originally, the orangery was named as it was used for growing its namesake the orange, as well as a number of other citrus plants. So naturally, plants are very well suited to growing in this environment which is great for those who enjoy gardening, but can’t rely on the British weather.
Obviously, the orangery also adds extra space in the home and is that bit more attractive during the summer than many other areas. In addition, the abundance of light in the room gives the illusion of even more space. A strong reason for its popularity.
Not only does light give the illusion of extra space, it also means people can have the effect of being outside when still inside, something especially important on those cold, but bright days.
5. Adds Value to a Home
Like any additional piece of home improvement or extensions, an orangery will add value to the house. Long term benefits such as this are important to consider when looking at pricing options.
Homes with something as stylish as an orangery are always going to be a more attractive prospect than homes that don't have one.
