The Secrets Of Adding An Orangery Successfully.
An orangery is the most English of architectural styles and adds class and grandeur to your property. Once orangeries were reserved for only the rich, privileged and the nobility, but for today’s homeowners owning a grand place for entertaining and relaxing is now possible.
An orangery unlike a conservatory has the look and feel of being part of the original building rather than a glass box tacked onto the side of the house.
So if you are planning on adding a new orangery this year find out how to successfully own a brand new elegant living space.
It may sound obvious but planning how you are going to use the new room before you start the build will really help you get the most out of the living space you are going to gain.
Flooring and Décor.
The flooring of the new extension should be on the same level as the room it’s adjoining; this gives the feel of continuity and flow. Using the same flooring or coordinated flooring from the adjoining room will seamlessly join the two rooms.
Even though the mass of the orangery is made of glass it is still important to consider how the room will be decorated. Decorate the new room in the same colours and style to match the rest of the house.
Knowing all the ins and outs before you commence on a build project will go a long way to successfully building an orangery and there won’t be any nasty surprises along the way.
Have a Budget.
Having a budget for the cost of the actual build and also a contiguous fund is a wise move. Even the most well planned builds can run into unforeseen problems, so by having some extra funds available this will help keep the build on track should a problem arise.
Employee The Best.
A key element to getting a good quality and perfect orangery is to work with a reputable manufacturer and installer. Working with a local company has many benefits; you will be able to ask to see the latest project they are working on and speak directly with the customer to find out how the whole process has been handled. Check the company are FENSA registered and offers a 10 year guarantee on their work.
Buy The Best.
An orangery is a large investment and therefore you should buy the best you can afford. Cutting corners to save money will be a costly mistake you will end up paying for in the future. Work with a company who prides themselves on the highest standard of workmanship and do all the work in house and do not rely on sub contactors.
