Our Orangery range continues to grow in popularity with those who like something a little different

The Orangery represents the perfect combination for those who would like a traditional extension but want to maximise the light. The addition of the concrete or brick columns together with the plastered ceiling pelmets and sunken lighting create a very cosy room. We have created many beautiful Orangeries over the years and you can view these in the portfolio at our showrooms.

Orangery Planning Permission

There are a number of rules regarding planning permission for Orangeries in Ireland. To be exempt from planning permission the following rules must be complied with;

  • The Orangery must be positioned to the rear of the property
  • There must be no glass facing a neighbouring property within 1 metre of the boundary wall, so in many cases this involves replacing a glass wall with a solid wall.
  • There must be 25 sqm of garden left after the orangery has been built.
  • The Orangery must be less than 40 sqm measured internally or if other extensions have been added to the house the combined area must be less than 40sqm of all extensions
  • The roof must not exceed 4m
  • For further information on planning permission for orangeries please contact our design office on 045 844 002

Orangery Side Glazing

Our Orangery designs incorporate pillars at the house wall, the front corners and at other intervals, this coupled with the very latest in energy efficient glazing makes this a very warm room in winter months. The glass used in the side glazing is Vista therm Elite glass supplied by Vista Therm in Nenagh. This glass has excellent insulating properties more than twice that of normal double glazing.

Orangery Roof Options

In keeping with tradition we glaze all our orangeries with double glazed energy efficient glass. This is available with a grey or blue tint to reduce glare. All our orangery roofs have self cleaning glass as standard to ensure your room looks great no matter what the season.

Colour Finishes

The Orangery Collection at Conservatory Designs is available in a full suite of colours with grey and cream very popular at the moment. We offer white as standard but any other foiled colour is available at an additional cost. Feel free to drop into the showroom for further colour samples.
