What’s the difference between a Conservatory and an Orangery?

Orangeries - Interior

An Orangery is a more substantial structure that features an Atrium style roof and concealed lighting.

The objective is to turn the Orangery into a seamless extension to your home, rather than just providing an exterior space.

Whilst the traditional type of Conservatory needs to manage the challenge of being uncomfortably warm in summer, and too cold to use in winter, Orangeries give you much more control over heating and ventilation.

Orangeries became popular in the 17th Century and were built by the landed gentry as extensions to stately homes for the purpose of growing sweet oranges – hence the name.

Traditionally, Orangeries use brick and stone pillars between large windows to support the Atrium style roof.

This method is still an option but it’s more cost effective to make use of the modern advances in uPVC and Aluminium.

Thanks to the introduction of Load Bearing Corner Posts, its possible to create a beautiful Orangery with a traditional brick base at a lower cost using modern materials.

There’s a lot to consider when comparing Orangeries and Conservatories so here’s how we can help:

  1. We can get you started with recommendations based on criteria such as which way your house is facing, how much direct sun the location attracts in summer and winter, and what the options are for heating the new room space up, and cooling it down.
  2. Once you feel comfortable with the best approach for your circumstances, we can help you evaluate the design and glazing options.
  3. If you are working to a specific budget, we can guide you to a solution that makes the best use of the budget available.
  4. We will provide a CAD drawing so you can see exactly how your new Conservatory or Orangery will look.
  5. When choosing an Orangery, we will take into account the constructional requirements and exceed the recommended building standards requirements in certain areas because we believe its better for you in the long run.
  6. As with all our products, your investment is protected by the terms of our Home Improvement Protection membership (see our Peace of Mind page)

However individual your tastes are, we can design an Orangery that meets every expectation

Boyland Orangeries Styles


The greater amount of solid brickwork construction in our Orangeries will help your new room space stay cooler in the summer, especially if you have a south-facing garden that receives the sun all day.

In the winter, your Orangery will be easier to keep warm.

The partially glazed roof will still let in a large amount of additional light and this will radiate back into the adjoining part of the house.

In order to make choosing an Orangery a great success, we provide you with creative inspiration, a deep knowledge of construction requirements and associated regulations, uPVC systems from the worlds leading manufacturer, meticulous installation standards, and the peace of mind that only an accredited Home Improvement Protection member can provide.
