With the total cost of moving house in the UK estimated at just below £9,000, it’s no surprise that many homeowners are looking to ‘improve not move.’ Orangeries have proven to be a popular method for home improvement, one which Cheshire homeowners should certainly consider.
Why should I invest in an Orangery?
Orangeries are a fantastic home-improvement solution and should be considered by homeowners for the following reasons:
1. Bolster your home’s value… significantly!
A good quality orangery is estimated by some experts to add up to 10% value to your home. Whether or not you’re looking to sell your home, orangeries can be a great investment.
2. Let the light in
Thanks to their largely glazed structures and beautiful lantern roofs, orangeries allow in copious amounts of sunlight. Have one installed today and benefit from a home that feels instantly more spacious and better lit.
3. Extra living space for you to enjoy as you please
Because of their energy efficient structures, they’re able to be enjoyed right the way through the year too. If you’re looking for a well-lit area to dine, somewhere to play your guitar, or something completely different, an orangery can provide you with the extra space you need.
4. Orangeries are cheaper than traditional extensions
You can enjoy all the extra living space you’ll get with a traditional extension for significantly less cost; some experts suggest that an orangery costs between 25-50% cheaper per square metre than a traditional brick and mortar extension.
5. Give your home that wow factor
Orangeries epitomise luxury, adding serious amounts of style to any property they’re installed on. If you’d like a stylish extension that will help your home stand out, look no further!
6. Seamlessly blend into your existing property
Orangeries can be constructed with lots of brickwork, which can be matched to your property. This means it will feel like a continuation of your current home.
7. Low maintenance luxury
As their framing is constructed from highly durable materials, such as uPVC and timber, they can be maintained with very little effort.
8. They can usually be built without planning permission
This is because orangeries are usually classified as a ‘permitted development right’, however planning permission is required if:
- It’s higher than 4 metres
- The orangery is wider than half the width of the house
- It exceeds or covers more than 50% of the size of the house
- A Veranda, Balcony or elevated platform is included
- The eaves are higher than 3 metres if within 2 metres of a structure boundary
