Orangeries – originally developed in Italy to protect small citrus trees – are generally regarded as the forerunner of today’s conservatories.
Performing a similar function they typically appear ‘grander’ and more substantial, usually having more brickwork than conservatories and partly plastered – as opposed to fully glazed – ceilings. The statement feature is undoubtedly the spectacular ‘roof lantern’, which floods the interior with fabulous natural light.
Another variant we offer at KLG Rutland is an orangery with a full glass, as opposed to lantern, roof. This – which we’ve christened our ‘orangette’ – creates an even lighter and more spacious environment.
The orangery is finding increasing favour in Nottingham and Derby homes as an extension which brilliantly combines the great outdoors with energy efficiency, high security and low maintenance.
Every KLG Rutland conservatory is covered by a comprehensive 10 year guarantee backed up with the DGCOS insurance warranty providing you with the secure knowledge that if anything should go wrong you have access to free arbitration from the Ombudsman.
