Fashionable during the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s, Orangeries were the status symbol of the time. It was a way of fusing indoor and outdoor living, bringing plants inside to tend and enjoy, not to mention how stunning they would look from the exterior too. Taking its name from the oranges (along with other fruit) that was grown in them, an Orangery was the height of sophistication.
An Orangery is something that can be enjoyed all year round, in ways in which a garden cannot be. It is very similar to a conservatory. However, the focus of the Orangery is on plants as opposed to furniture, although both can be added simultaneously depending on the purpose of the space.
Many stately homes, both public and private, boast Orangeries, however it is also possible to add such an extension onto a more modern building and still be in keeping with the style. If you are looking to build an Orangery onto your property, then be sure to give us a call here at Creative Windows, as we have the knowledge and expertise to advise on what design would suit best, as well as be able to provide you with a price.
Some existing traditional Orangeries have been converted into tea rooms and restaurants, which can be found in old hotels, museums and stately homes. This is something that can be recreated on commercial buildings where it is desired that they share a similar look and feel as the ones of yesteryear.
