This is one of our most commonly asked questions and it never fails to confuse our consumers, which is understandable due to how the differences between the three have been blurred in more recent times. Typically, a conservatory is considered to be made from glass mostly, with a glass roof and walls, offering a beautiful view of the outdoors. But there is always the option of adding a tiled roof to your conservatory to guarantee a pleasant temperature inside, with dwarf walls for extra insulation.
On the other hand, an orangery has more brickwork or aluminium pillars to provide enhanced privacy and warmth. This often creates a deluxe feel. More often than not, orangeries feature a pelmet around the roof of the structure. But when it comes to the roof style of your orangery, there is nothing stopping you. You can choose from many options, including a glass lantern or solid tiled roof.
