How to choose the ideal garden room
An orangery is more substantial than a conservatory. It is usually made of brick or masonry to match the existing property, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a lantern-style roof.
What to look for...
Orangeries are the perfect solution for kitchen/diners so you will need to plan how to use the space from the start. Consider designs from Hartley Botanic and David Salisbury.
