Are you considering putting an orangery in your home?
An orangery is a great investment for a variety of reasons. They add value to your home, bring in light and create an overall warmer and more inviting atmosphere.
The uses or orangeries are endless, and many homeowners turn them into living rooms, dining rooms, playrooms and more. Keep reading to learn more about what an orangery is and why should put one in your home.
What is an Orangery?
An orangery is similar to a conservatory, except that it is a much more substantial room. It’s often in the back of the home and features floor to ceiling windows with a lantern-style roof.
Well-designed orangeries blend into your home seamlessly and act as an indoor patio that will allow you to enjoy the outdoors no matter what the weather looks like.
Benefits of Having an Orangery
Do you need more space and light in your home? If so, an orangery is a great option. Here are five benefits of building an orangery:
1. Add More Living Space
An orangery adds more space to your home. It’s an addition to your home so it adds more square footage, but it also makes outdoor space more liveable. Having a beautiful backyard is great, but it can only be used so many days a year.
An orangery adds more liveable space, which will increase the value of your home more than a back yard.
2. Bring in More Light
Orangeries feature floor to ceiling windows and skylights, so it will bring it a lot more light to your home during the day. This will come in handy during the winter and rainy seasons when daylight is scarce.
3. Bring the Outdoors Inside
Like we said above, an orangery makes your outdoor space more liveable.
Instead of only getting a handful of days outside a year, an orangery is something you can enjoy all year round. On nice days you can open the windows and enjoy some fresh air and you can close yourself off on colder days, but still enjoy lots of sunlight and views of outside.
4. Entertain All Year Long
An orangery gives you more space to entertain your friends and family. It also allows you to give guests a feeling like they’re outside, but during any time of the year.
5. Save Money on Heating and Cooling Costs
Orangeries help seal in heat during the winter months. They also bring in more sunlight which helps your whole home feel warmer. This can help you save on heating costs during the times of the year when the weather is milder.
You can also save money when the weather heats up by opening up your orangery windows and letting the natural breeze inside.
