Conservatories and Orangeries
A beautiful Orangery or quality Conservatory is an ideal way to add extra space and value to your property. They can add an extra dimension to your home, extend a living area, entice the outside into your home and extend summer into autumn. Millennium Orangeries and Conservatories are available in a wide range of designs to suit every home and we can tailor make our designs to suit your own individual taste.
Advancements in roof glazing technology means that you can reduce the sun's heat in the summer and reduce heat loss in the winter.
You don’t always have to restrict yourself to more conventional designs either as following many advancements in technology the choice and range of features is growing. You may wish to incorporate insulated columns in the corners or as part of the design instead of brick or blockwork columns as shown below with this Loggia design.

Conservatories and Orangeries come in all shapes and sizes and can be manufactured in a range of materials and colours. They can incorporate french doors, sliding doors or bi-folding doors and can either be glazed to the ground or built with walls around.
"What is the difference between a Conservatory and an Orangery?" is a question that we get asked a lot and, in fairness, the difference can be very minor. In general terms an Orangery will tend to have a more solid appearance than a Conservatory with more walls and less glazing and the glazed roof area would be smaller and may consist of a separate lantern on a flat roof or an internal pelmet. With the advancements in technology we are also able to offer Conservatories that have additional features both internally and externally that give the appearance of an Orangery (like the Atlas SkyRoom Orangery and LivinRoom Orangery for example). Conservatories, in contrast, would tend to have more glazing to maximise natural light and have more design possibilites.
Orangery Extensions, such as the one shown above with Lantern Rooflights, would require both Planning and Building Bye-Law approval as this would be categorised as an extension. You will need to approach and Architect and Engineer initially to produce the design and calculations required.
