What is the difference between an Orangery and a Conservatory?
Whilst orangeries and conservatories are very similar, orangeries can be more expensive and are generally viewed as a more aesthetically pleasing option.
The key differences with an orangery are its deep external guttering and use of brick columns and pilasters. Both features add to the orangery’s elegant and luxurious image.
Our blog what is the difference between a conservatory and an orangery explains the differences in more detail.

DIY orangery kit specifications
As you will see below, every DIY Orangery we manufacture is different and made-to-measure to suit your home, preferences and budget. If you don’t see what you need below, please ask us!
We normally manufacture a standard DIY Orangery roof at a 25° pitch, but depending on height requirements, this can be anywhere between a 20° and 35° pitch.
Orangery roof glazing normally consists of:
- Subtle Blue, Self-cleaning, solar control, 24mm glass sealed units, which is available in various colours and thermal specifications to suit your needs and preference.
Our DIY Orangery models are available in either:
- Dwarf-Wall Model – we normally manufacture the frames to suit a 600mm high wall, but we can manufacture them to suit any wall height according to your requirements.
- Full-Height Model – full height frames with glass to floor. These frames are usually 2100mm in height, but we often manufacture them at different heights when needed, in order to fit various different site situations.
- Full-Height Bottom Panel Model – Full height frames with solid PVCu panels in the bottom. Again, these are normally 2100mm high but this can sometimes vary, the same as already stated above.
Orangery Window Frames
You name it, we can supply it! Below are just some of the options available to you:
- Window frames to suit any wall height including dwarf-walls, three-quarter height walls and full-height walls.
- Fixed or opening windows where desired.

Depending on your preference, we can supply any of the following door types, and you can have as many different door types as you want in your Orangery:
- Single Door – half or fully glazed, inward or outward opening.
- French (Double) Doors – again, half glazed or fully glazed, opening inwards or outwards. French doors are our most popular choice.
- Patio (Sliding) Door – sliding left or right, these are available in 2, 3 or 4-pane options.
- Bi-Fold (Concertina) Doors – left or right sliding and opening in or out, these come in many different configurations and provide maximum opening between your Orangery and garden.

All our Orangery models are available in White only.
Base, Floor and Walls
All our DIY Orangery designs are fully compatible with ConservaBase, our optional, steel conservatory base, floor and wall system. Or we can manufacture your Orangery to fit onto a conventional concrete base and brick walls.
Our DIY Orangeries are fully customisable, please see our Specifications page for further details.
Orangery Planning Permission
Orangeries are bound by the same planning permission regulations as conservatories.
You can read all about planning permission, and whether or not you need it, right here.
Like all conservatories, it depends on the type of extension you buy. We build bespoke orangeries for your exact needs – and the Orangery price will depend on what those needs are.
Things like size, dimensions and specifications will determine the overall cost of the orangery.
A few more points to consider when deciding a budget for your new orangery are; whether you require a new base for your orangery, the type of glazing you would like, the style of frame you’re looking for and whether you feel confident installing it yourself.
We offer a range of interest free and low-rate credit options to help you finance your new orangery. See our Conservatory and Orangery finance page for more details.
Customer of the Month Case Study
The Drake family had a Hipped-Back Edwardian Orangery supplied by Conservatory Land in May 2017. After the initial brick work was completed Mr Drake began building the rest of the orangery himself – an experience he says he “thoroughly enjoyed”.
Throughout the project, Mr Drake made a few phone calls to his dedicated technical advisor here at Conservatory Land, to ensure he was doing everything right.
Their orangery is incredibly spacious, and gives the Drake’s exactly what they needed.
You can read the Drake’s Experiance in the Hipped-Back Edwardian Orangery Case Study along with many other Case Studies in our archive.
