Choosing from orangery designs to help you get the ideal fit is going to depend on three things, your personal tastes, the budget you’re working to, and the current architectural style of your home. These three things are all going to have an impact on what style and size your orangery will be.

You’ll want to consider how the interior décor is going to be placed, depending on the function of the room. Your installer of choice will be able to advise you on this to help you get the perfect fit.

Orangery designs differ in their appearance and in their functionality, so its important that you get one that is going to suit your needs. We’ll go through the different designs below:
Tiled roof orangeries are the ideal option for homeowners looking to capture a heritage feel without having to miss out on modern innovations. The tiles used on the roof are designed to replicate their traditional counterparts, but instead achieve a much lighter and more versatile build. Alongside this, they also require no maintenance and will look just like the original tiled design. You’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds, bringing a heritage charm to your property while still enjoying the comforts of the modern age.
A solid roof orangery offers similar benefits to their tiled roof alternative. However, the roof comprises a panelled design for a more modern finish. Alongside this, you can also enjoy a heightened degree of flexibility when it comes to the glazing placement. This is because you’ll be able to choose where the glazing is fitted and in what shape it is fitted in. With this in mind, you’ll have the freedom to control how the light enters your orangery and how it looks from an aesthetic point of view too. It’s never been easier to bring a personal touch.
The third stand out option when it comes to orangery designs is the lantern orangery. This orangery offers a stunning, cutting-edge feel that will really stand out in your home. The lantern is essentially a glass rooflight that is fitted into a certain part of the roof, surrounded by a plastered interior to capture a room-like feel. This is the ideal option or bringing a focal point to your property that can draw focus to a kitchen island, dining table, or wherever you please. You can even have more than one lantern installed depending on the size of the orangery you have.
There are several stages involved when it comes getting orangery designs installed, all of which are essential to ensuring your orangery is fitted in a professional, prompt, and proper manner:
Quotation – This first phase starts with us providing you with some guideline prices, either through our orangery cost calculator or through our price tables on this page. Then, we can put you in touch with three local, accredited installers that will be on hand to help you get you new home improvement project on the road.
Design Process – Once you have contacted your installer, they will use the information you have provided them to (price and specifications) to create a technical roof drawing. This is why we recommend that you use the price we give you, as it will give you the confidence to know what you’ll be dealing with. The design process is important for seeing how the orangery will look.
Technical Survey – Once the final orangery design has been signed off, you’ll be visited by a fully-qualified surveyor. Their role is to take the required measurements for installation, which will then be passed on to your installer of choice to ensure they are working with accuracy and precision right from the start. This step is important when it comes to getting a perfect orangery fit.
Plans – Next, comes the planning phase. These plans are drawn up using the specifications detailed by the surveyor. Once the plans have been drawn up, your installer can then get to work with the actual installation. By now, you should have the peace of mind that everything is starting off on the right foot and you don’t need to worry about how it is going to fit.
Fitting – We only put you in touch with installers that work to the highest standards of professionalism and product competency, which is why the fitting phase should be a smooth and easy process. You can simply sit back, relax, and let your installer transform your home into a new place to enjoy and use.
Completion – After a quick and easy installation, your new orangery is now ready to use! Due the design you’ve chosen, you’ll find that taking the time to look through orangery designs and choose the right one has really paid off. Don’t forget to pick up your guarantee from your installer, who will be more than happy to provide you with one.
Once you have chosen your ideal option from the selection of orangery designs, you’ll want to find an accredited installer to ensure it is fitted as you envision it to be. We know that you’ll be wanting to avoid the ‘cowboy installer’ horror stories, which is why we have accumulated a network of trusted installers to do all of the hard work for you.
However, it’s still useful to be aware of the sort of thing you should be looking out for when it comes to finding an orangery installer. To do this, you can look out for accreditations and schemes that the installer may be involved in. These include the Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS) and the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme (FENSA).
The Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS)
The Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS) is a professional scheme that has been put in place to put homeowner minds at ease. It operates as a consumer protection organisation that works to mediate in the event that you have a dispute with one of their accredited members. As it stands, this is the only organisation of this type to be operating within the double glazing industry. If your installer of choice is a part of this scheme, you can have confidence that they have had to go through a stringent and meticulous twelve-step assessment process to become so.
After paying a deposit to a DGCOS registered installer, you’ll be able to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that your money is protected. Should your installer go out of business during the installation process, you won’t lose your money! This is another reason why it’s important to see if the installer is a part of this scheme.
The DGCOS does not charge homeowners in the event that mediation is necessary. It promises to:
Help fully resolve any issues free of charge;
Provide inspections (also at no cost) to help with product or installation issues (although this is not guaranteed and is at their discretion);
Help homeowners to resolve any disputes without any need for them to incur legal costs;
Provide access to a fund that can be used for compensation, thereby ensuring homeowners aren’t left worse off.
Orangery installers must also prove their competence over time. That is to say, they are rigorously re-assessed to prove they are just as competent and reliable as when they first joined the DGCOS.
Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme
The Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme (FENSA) has been established as a Competent Person Scheme (CPS). It is a governing body that is responsible for regulating double glazing companies across the nation, who have to apply for FENSA to show that they are fully compliant with all current building regulations. With this in mind, if you see a FENSA accreditation on your installer’s website you can rest assured that you’re investing in exceptional quality.
If you find yourself unsure as to whether your installer is a FENSA member, you can use FENSA’s online search tool to find them. Simply visit the website to look for them via their name, location, or their FENSA company number. Through this method, you’ll be able to make sure that you are making the right choice, right from the comfort of your own home.
Our orangery cost calculator is a fantastic way for you to make the potentially daunting landscape of orangery designs a small and manageable place. All you have to do is follow the step by step process to create your perfect orangery. From there, we’ll be able to offer you a guide price that you can take to three of the local installers that we put you in touch with. It’s never been easier to bring leading orangery designs to your home.
Simply put, a conservatory will have more glass than an orangery. Orangeries typically comprise brick piers or insulated columns that help them to achieve a more structural feel. However, modern options ensure you get just as much light as a conservatory can offer you. This way, you don’t have to miss out.
The original orangery designs were reserved for the higher echelons of society, usually used a method of preserving the well-being of orange plants during the colder weather. However, orangeries have become available in the public sphere since and are no longer limited to the gentry classes. With this in mind, you can now bring a sense of luxury to your home with a classic charm.
We understand that you want to let as much natural light into your home as possible, without having to open up your home to the elements. This is why modern orangery designs are fitted with high-performance weatherseals, which are intelligently installed into all of the windows and doors to ensure the weather stays out of your property where it belongs. They are integrated into the window and door frame, to prevent them being detrimental to the look of your orangery, maintaining a beautiful aesthetic across the board.
Having these seals fitted means that you can enjoy the prevention of draughts and water ingress, both of which can have a negative effect on the comfort of your home and the longevity of your orangery. If you have an orangery fitted that suffers ingress, you could find that you experience an build up of mould and damp. In turn, this can cause damage to the orangery, increase maintenance, and reduce the lifespan of the windows and doors. This is something you will need to consider when exploring orangery designs.
