Orangery or Conservatory?

Do you want an extension that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your property – or are you attracted to the idea of a sleek and glassy design that’ll stand out and give your home a contemporary touch? How you answer this question will determine whether you choose an orangery or conservatory for your Southampton home.

Actually, we’re being a little unfair to orangeries. Traditionally, they are built using more mortar than glass – which means they won’t stand out. But, as with conservatories, you can tweak the design to suit your requirements. Victorian and Edwardian styles – which can also be used for conservatories – can be selected in place of a more traditional style.

Still not sure whether to choose an orangery or conservatory? Both will add value to your home and provide you with room to build a play area, office or a dining room. It all comes down to personal choice – so there’ s no wrong answer. Most installation companies now offer orangeries and conservatories, so you’ll be able to get price comparisons and ideas when calling them.

What Planning Permission do I Need for a Conservatory?

In most cases, you won’t have any issues. But it is always advisable to check what planning permission you need for a conservatory in Southampton – as there a few exemptions that apply, which could trip you up later if you weren’t diligent in the early stages.

The main thing you need to know is that your conservatory must be of a certain size. An extension of this nature that takes up over half the land around your original property – in other words,, its size when it was built – will be denied planning permission. If you own a period or grade 2 listed building, other exclusions may apply, so check what planning permission you need for your conservatory with your installer first.

Other variations may apply depending on whether you live in England or Wales. Avoid elevations (like balconies) and take care to ensure your conservatory’s roof is not higher than that of your property. In most cases, though, planning permission will be granted – as councils now view them as permissible developments.

Should I Buy a Conservatory?

There’s no doubt that a conservatory will make your house more saleable when it comes to upping sticks. But you may not want to move on – and creating some extra space will prevent you from having to do so. So should you buy a conservatory in Southampton – or are you better off saving your money?

Conservatories significantly increase the resale value of properties (recent research suggests you could see an uplift of circa 7%). As indicated, they can also prevent the need to move (which can be expensive when you take in to account extortionate legal fees and, in a lot of cases, stamp duty).

Should you buy a conservatory based on this evidence? The only thing that could stop you is the orientation of your garden. If it isn’t south facing, your extension will remain mostly in the shade – and will therefore be virtually uninhabitable.

The good news is that there are conservatories to suit every budget and each style of property. Whether you want a Lean To conservatory for a small terraced house, or a slightly more imposing 3-facted Victorian conservatory for a three bed detached home, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Reviews

★★★★★
A&A built a conservatory for us. They also renewed the boundary fence on both sides and rear of the garden. They were very professional, organised and tidy. They were very helpful when I had questions, and kept me informed on what they were doing. The quality of the workmanship was very good, they turned up on time. The job was completed within the timescale and I was very pleased with the products I purchased. I would recommend them.

Working in a father and son team they arranged a time and showed up first thing in the morning. Both very polite, and after a quick look round to see what needed doing they were straight back to work. Work carried out was tidy and efficient with minimal noise. We have two young children, one needed to sleep at lunchtime, so after explaining this they made sure they completed all work in her bedroom first thing and were cleaned up by lunchtime - then made minimal noise near the bedroom. I cannot fault the professionalism and good work carried out.

Salesman, surveyor, installers and materials all arrived on time. The men worked in a clean, respectful and efficient manner. The product is good quality and looks attractive while competitively priced. During our three experiences of A&A Windows they have given very efficient services from the office to the site

What is thermally efficient glass?

If your roof glass is thermally efficient, it is filled with a gas that's designed to help retain heat – as opposed to polycarbonate roofing, which will let most of the warmth escape (and therefore cost you money). If you can afford it, a tiled roof is even more efficient and will blend in better with your property's existing brickwork.

How much is a conservatory?

As a general guide, expect to pay in the region of about £5000-£20000.

What conservatory is best?

There is no best design, only the one that suits your home and fits within your budget.
