It sounds exotic, but originally it was just that, “a place to cultivate oranges”.
This developed in style between 17th until 19th century to become a fashionable addition to grand houses.It now is really a development of a Conservatory, but has more brickwork and
features a ceiling area which has usually a glass lantern roof.
In recent years it has steadily become more and more popular, and is a real alternative to a Conservatory.
It is more of an all year round room with the latest Glazing and insulating to walls, and is really an extension to your home, but is still classed under conservatory category, so often Planning is not required.
We at Shield Windows, doors and Conservatories have built a large display inside Hilliers Garden Centre in Botley where the full effect can be seen. Inside their are large length Windows, 3 Glass lantern roofs with spot lights inside the perimeter ceiling.
The area is used as part of the new Coffee Shop extension, which has been very well recieved by all visitors to Hilliers Garden Centre.
The construction of an Orangery usually takes about 6 weeks from start to finish, so if booked now can be finished in time for your Summer Barbecue. Shield Windows, Doors and Conservatories offer 10 year guarantee on all installations, and because we have our own in house building division, we control the project from start to finish.
Here at Shield we also have a great display of Conservatory styles on site, Extension and Our Brand new Outdoor decking display, so all your home improvements can be dealt with in house.
We would welcome any enquiries for both Conservatories and Orangeries, as well as Windows doors and decking, we currently have a limited offer for Orangeries starting at only £16,500.00 and if you compare this to the cost of an extension, proves exceptional value for money.
