Why Get An Orangery?
As orangeries are built with a combination of well-insulated brickwork and glass, they provide you with a thermally efficient space for your Suffolk or Essex home that can be used any day of the year. Due to this, they can be used as anything from a dining room to a gym. Additionally, orangeries offer a beautiful transition between your home and the outdoors as their large windows and airy space give the illusion of bringing the outside in.

From start to finish, everyone at Blue Light was friendly, helpful, and efficient. I had a new front door fitted and I'm extremely pleased with the quality of the product and the professional fitting service offered by Blue Light. I would definitely recommend them.
Customer service was excellent throughout the whole process and we were kept well informed by Carlo. The glass fitters Darren and Darren were confident and were able to answer any questions we had.
Highly recommend! We’ve struggled finding good tradespeople in the past but we are so happy we used Blue Light for our windows and cladding. Really friendly team and a quality service. We wish we could use them for everything! Thanks team

What are orangeries?
Orangeries are typically brick-based structures with tall windows. They traditionally come with a flat roof and a glass lantern. Despite its confusion with a conservatory, a traditional orangery can be recognised by its distinctive appearance.
Why are orangeries so popular?
Orangeries are popular for various reasons. When executed well, orangeries are durable and resistant to weather and temperature fluctuations. This makes them ideal if you wish to have additional living space, but are a more cost-effective option than purchasing a bigger home.
What is the difference between an orangery and a conservatory?
Generally speaking, orangeries tend to have less glass and more brick than conservatories. As a result, orangeries are less prone to temperature fluctuations and are ideal to be used as a living space all year round.
Can you make the structural goalposts more visually appealing?
Yes, we can! We are able to conceal the structural goalposts within brick piers or super-insulated columns, depending on the style you prefer. The super-insulated columns can be further decorated to add a beautiful charm to your living space, and also have the additional benefit of being five times more thermally efficient than a brick pier.
Do I need planning permission to build an orangery?
Generally speaking, you should not need planning permission for an orangery. However, you do need planning permission if more than 50% of the land around the original house is to be covered or the extension is forward of the front or side of the original house that faces onto a road.
Additionally, you may need planning permission if you live in a listed building or designated area, or fail under an Article 4 Direction. If you are unsure, it is best to contact your local council for more information.
