There’s much talk and confusion about the difference between an orangery and a conservatory.

Typically, an orangery offers a grander, atrium-style ceiling height and is quite often steel framed with an element of flat roof and significantly less glazing than a conservatory .

Recently, with the introduction of the hybrid roof systems the lines between the two types of structures are less defined than they were. Some people prefer the ‘up market ’ factor of the word orangery, but for some people if it’s fully glazed it’s a conservatory but if it’s got brick walls and a ‘parapet’ style roof then it’s an orangery.

In truth, whether you end up with an orangery or a conservatory is purely down to what you want to call it. At Vale we can build you an Orangery or a conservatory or any variation in between!
