Orangeries from Coltlight.

For Conservatories, Roofs and Orangeries in Whytleafe, Caterham, Worldingham, Warlingham, Surrey and Surrounding areas

Orangeries are built with a perimeter roof and suspended roof lantern / glass lantern. The orangery itself is a bespoke structure which can be designed to fit onto a property even if space is limited. Orangeries can be constructed as a kitchen extension, living room extension or as a structure to connect two properties.

Conservatories and Orangeries are different but have many similarities, the main difference is that a conservatory roof is connected directly to the side-framing, whereas an orangery has a flat roof element. Both orangeries and conservatories may have brickwork sections or piers as part of the side structure, but it is more common for these to be a significant part of the structure within an orangery.

Why choose and Orangery

Modern Orangeries have developed significantly since their origins from the 17th century. They are a beautiful addition to any property from a detached house to a bungalow, from a semi detached to a terraced house we can manufacture and supply an orangery to fit the dimensions available in size and height. Orangeries are a beautiful way to introduce more space to a home, let in more light and most importantly to increase available living space.

Modern Orangery styles

Orangeries, like conservatory styles, are both traditional and contemporary, falling somewhere between conservatory and traditional extension styles. With their brick pillars, orangeries offer more privacy than conservatory styles and the interior height provides a breathtaking focal point through which light floods in to your home. Your orangery will also offer a seamless link between your home and garden.
