How An Orangery Can Transform Your Home

Has your excitement for home living dampened in recent times? If so, it could be time to do one of two things – move or extend your current space. However, do you have the energy, or indeed, the money to move?

Stone Built Orangery with Tiled Roof

If your body and bank balance suggest not, you could have an orangery fitted by the TWC, which is guaranteed to have you rushing to get back home after a day at work.

Even the appearance of an orangery is enough to make the mouth water. Predominantly constructed from brickwork, orangeries have beautifully elegant pillars and their roofing systems (classic, cornice, Lantern, tiled) seemingly go on for miles.

Traditional designs come with the Lantern roof, a roof covering first used on some of the country’s best-known cathedrals back in the Middle Ages. Customers like how the Lantern Roof manages to transmit so much natural light into this type of extension and gives it a very bright internal atmosphere.  

But, they’re increasingly being shunned for solid roofs.

When retrospectively fitted or included in a new-build orangery, a solid tiled roof helps to keep them fully insulated throughout the year. So, there’s no possibility of the structure feeling too cold or too hot at times. Adding roof windows to a solid roof will account for any potential loss of light that comes with its installation.

There are various other upsides to orangery ownership…

Gorgeous views

Prepare to see your garden like you have never seen it before. Garden views will be quite amazing and they’ll encourage you to use your garden more regularly. In which case, you should also add French, patio or bi-folding doors to the design.


Orangeries are very often used as lounge spaces or dining areas, but you could also have one converted into an office, gym, playroom or whatever else it is you want. Inform TWC of your intentions and we will produce an orangery that caters for them.

Added value

Property experts are fully in the know when it comes to orangeries. They estimate that an orangery can add up to 20% onto the resale value of a house. Buyers are also often lured to properties with orangeries, more so than properties without them.
