There are several important things you need to know about orangeries and conservatories. One of the most important is that you can’t simply start building one without thinking. Variables exist here that you cannot ignore if you want the best results.
How much space can you use?
For one thing, you must be cautious with taking up an excessive amount of exterior space. What you don’t want here is to knock off value from your property. This tends to happen when people make their gardens too small. It is best to have the structure function as a link between the outside and inside.
It is also essential to think through the design of your orangery or conservatory. You may need it to carefully blend with the existing structure. The construction also requires scale and rhythm, with everything being in proportion. Your doors need to be wide enough that you can enable flow to the garden from the house.
Furthermore, really think about the materials you are using. It may be best to move away from uPVC when working on orangeries. Instead, you might want to look at a modified timber or Accoya. Planning permission is not normally necessary here. However, it is safer to double check things as it may affect the size, scale, or design if you live in an area with conservation status.
Last but not least, think about applying for a lawful development certificate. These are not always a necessity but can prove to be very useful. It confirms that planning was not necessary and may come in handy when attempting to sell; some buyers want to be sure that the work is legal.
