An orangery is a room which is often labelled as a 'home extension' that can be used in the same way a conservatory can. Orangeries offer homeowners the chance to extend their living space in style whilst offering styling and design that is different from your typical conservatory. Orangeries have become increasingly popular; they offer a great all year round living space full of natural light due to the glazed lantern installed in the flat roof. Our stunning orangery designs are an ideal extension to be used for multiple purposes such as; kitchens, dining rooms or sunrooms.
Internally the glazed lantern roof usually becomes the most stunning feature of the entire building. Create space for that extended Kitchen, Dining room or Sun lounge. Our Orangeries are bespoke and designed to your individual specification. We can have our fabricators create your dream space in your choice of material - Timber, uPVC or Aluminium. The external appearance of the orangery can be designed to suit both the customer's tastes and the local built environment. The range of colours, styles and configurations are limitless.
The Little Conservatory Company offers a free consultation to discuss designs, and can also produce a 3D CAD drawing to illustrate the design.
The use of roof lights and roof lanterns as a means of incorporating light into a dark room or space has been used for many years. Our Roof lights (supplied by Atlas and Ultraframe) are available in contemporary style or elaborate in-period layout. They can be built to any size and specification the customer requires and offer a cost-effective way to brighten up any room. Please take a look at the brochures below for further details.
Crafted using only the finest timber, all our timber Orangeries add a feeling of quality and luxury. We can customise details and fixtures to suit your needs, and with our stylish feature windows, stunning roof lanterns and sleek bi-fold doors, our orangeries capture the natural light with dramatic effect, turning the additional space into a warm and inviting area to relax and entertain.
Our Hardwood Orangeries are built only from the finest grade hardwoods such as Sapele, Idigbo and Oak.
In most cases, planning permission is not necessary for Orangeries because adding one to your home is usually allowed under the new 'permitted development' rules (subject to certain conditions).
Terraced and semi-detached homes can make additions up to 6 meters without planning permission whilst detached houses can now add large structures up to 8 meters without permission as demonstrated. (The red shaded area on the diagram shows the old 4-meter limit, but this is now 8 meters (as of May 2019)).
Note: Should you wish to build a double story extension - you will require planning permission.

Fitting window into industrial building Windows - Paul's team saved the day when we were let down by another builder. They did a good professional job for a reasonable price and cleared up properly afterwards. Thank you!

Paul repaired a door for me. It was a basic job - replacing a locking mechanism. He was professional, reasonably priced, good communication. I am happy with what he did, would use him again and recommend him.

Great chap, knows his stuff and sorted out my issue the same day. Will be looking at sourcing windows from his great experience.

Paul and crew did a great job fitting our conservatory and patio area, all the team worked really hard, respected the house and all worked to a high standard. Paul and John, in particular, are both great guys and did a cracking job, I will definitely use them again in the future. Highly recommended.

Single story garden room with roof Lantern and Bi-Fold Doors. No issues at all. Polite, friendly and highly skilled staff. Work delivered to high standards and any concerns raised where acted on in a timely and satisfactory manor. Paul the boss is a polite, very hard working and cares for his work and his customers.
Had a new composite door fitted yesterday and I am so happy with how it looks! So much better than the old wooden one and it seems to be warmer too! Great work.

Paul did the excellent job quickly and on time. Many thanks again.
I am delighted with my new conservatory, which was carried out in a professional, reliable and friendly manner and I would be happy to recommend them.
Perfect job. Thanks.
Paul and the guys did a great job on gutting and replacing our kitchen. During the project, Paul came up with lots of great ideas on how to get the best of our galley kitchen. Well organised and would def recommend. We used to hate going in the old kitchen but love the new one.
Went above and beyond for total satisfaction. Did extras to complete the job. Polite and well mannered at all times. Would thoroughly recommend.

Paul was great - he finished my conservatory and downstairs toilet on schedule and always was very clear about what he was doing and when. He consulted me throughout the building process to make sure I was happy. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Little Conservatory Company to anyone.
Highly recommend this company. Thank you Paul and Luke!
Very helpful and flexible. Always on time. Good pricing and came in well under budget.
Completed a small job as requested have asked him for a quote for a larger job. Very happy with results. Nice polite guy.
