Conservatories & Orangeries: Which is Cheaper?

Would you like to extend your home? Perhaps you have a growing family or you’d like a dedicated area for entertaining guests? Maybe you’re fed up with the constant clutter round your home and you’d like more space to bring back some order to your living environment? If you’re thinking about extending your home, a glazed extension is an excellent option.

At Pears Home Improvements, we install high quality uPVC conservatories and orangeries across Worcestershire and the West Midlands. Our glazed extensions are available in a wide range of styles and configurations and we can also design bespoke conservatories and orangeries to meet your exact specifications.

Conservatories & Orangeries: the best choice for your home

You may think that installing a conservatory or orangery is a large undertaking. And you’d be right. At Pears Home Improvements, however, we remove all the hassle, so you can relax in the knowledge that you’re in the safest hands. Once completed, a glazed extension will have a massive effect on your living space, helping to transform your home for the better.

When you want to maximise natural light intake to your property, a conservatory is probably the best choice for you. With a fully glazed roof and large glazed sides (either floor to ceiling or with a supporting dwarf wall), a conservatory really is the ultimate in glass construction. An orangery on the other hand, typically features more brickwork than a conservatory. With a series of brick built insulating columns supporting a stylish lantern roof, an orangery will provide a more permanent feel, bridging the gap between a traditional brick-built extension and fully glazed conservatory.

The Question of Cost

Budgeting for your home improvements is essential. When planning any enhancements to your home, it’s imperative that you are completely comfortable and totally informed about all the costs involved. In general an orangery installation is more complicated, involving more groundwork and brickwork than a conservatory, therefore it is likely to cost more. If you already have the foundations for erecting your extension, this will have an impact on reducing the cost.

The size and style of your glazed extension will also affect the cost of the project. On average, for bespoke designed extensions with customised features, you’ll probably need to factor in a larger budget. A standard replacement conservatory, on the other hand, will likely be the most cost-effective option.
