Conservatories, Orangeries and Garden Rooms
"What is the difference between a conservatory, an orangery, a livin'room, a loggia and a garden room?"
A question often asked by customers who are overwhelmed by the sheer choice of living spaces available today.
Essentially a conservatory is a glazed structure, sometimes with brickwork and sometimes without. A conservatory is versatile in that it can be constructed in lots of styles from Victorian, Edwardian, lean-to and gable fronted. A useful space for any household, offering light and space for the whole family to enjoy. Pop by and see our self cleaning glass roof conservatory at Belwell Lane.
Orangeries feature a flat roof section around the roof perimeter with an inset glazed atrium. Traditional orangeries feature more brickwork than conservatories, often having brick corner pillars, which can offer more privacy, and greater insulation values without losing light.
Livin'rooms and loggia's are a newer hybrid concept. They are similar to orangeries, but perhaps more affordable. An Ultraframe Livin'room features a generous internal perimeter box system to house downlights, giving the feel of an orangery without the need for a external flat roof perimeter. Couple a livin'room with structural columns to the lower section and you have a loggia. Click to see an Ultraframe Loggia being constructed. We have Livin'room for you to see in the showroom.

Garden Rooms are similar to extensions. They offer a solid, lightweight tiled roof which can incorporate Velux windows to let the light flood in. This specially manufactured roof system is vaulted, plastered and can house downlights; it can sit happily on a glazed PVCu structure and offers fantastic insulation values, giving an ambient space for all seasons.
