Guide to Orangery Costs

More and more homeowners are finding the disposable income to invest in an extension for their space, giving them an extra little slice of space to do with as they please. Orangeries are similar to conservatories, meaning they usually sit to the rear of the property and boast glass-panelled walls. One notable difference between orangeries and conservatories is that the former has glazing where the latter does not; an orangery has a glazed lantern roof where a conservatory does not.

Orangeries also offer a range of benefits aside from the extra space, including adding monetary value to your home that makes a valuable investment for those looking to resell or rent out in the future. But how much does it cost to install an orangery on your property? What factors can affect the cost? Read on to find out.

But What Factors Could Affect The Price Of An Orangery?

There are many factors that can hike up or cheapen the cost of orangery installation. These include:

  1.  Design. There are different types of orangery design, some most costly than others. For instance, a contemporary styled orangery by architects in London may be more expensive than a traditional style orangery as the design is likely more complex. The exception to this is likely if the design is minimalist, as this will be simpler to install.
  2. Materials. Regarding materials, we refer to both window and wall material. This depends on the glazing:wall ratio. The more glazing you opt for, the cheaper your orangery will be to install. By comparison, if you opt for an orangery that is more brick than glass, expect the costs to rise.
  3. The roof. The roof is an area where your orangery costs could rise dramatically. When it comes to decisions about your orangery roof, you need to think about factors such as size, style, and materials. The roof is also one of the areas that could impact how well your orangery is thermally insulated, which could affect future heating costs.
