Traditional Orangeries for Yorkshire

Not only will the elegance of a traditional orangery instantly add to the appearance of your home, its design and use of strong materials helps to eliminate outside noise; creating an incredible space in which you can easily escape from everything. What stands an orangery out from a more traditional extension is its glass roof, while the classic brick-built pillars and walls of traditional orangeries offer both practical and stylish benefits. Unlike normal extensions that can be at times dull and uninviting, the glass roof of an orangery creates a welcoming natural-lit room that also feels more open and spacious than traditional conservatories thanks to the added height the roof provides.

Here at Visual Conservatories, Windows & Doors we understand that a traditional orangery is a big decision and that there are many different factors that must be taken into account. That is why we will work with you every step of the way to ensure you get exactly what you want. All of our products are manufactured exclusively for us by our Conservatory Outlet Fabricator here in West Yorkshire. Using only the very best materials and latest manufacturing techniques, we have full control over the entire design, manufacturing and installation process. This allows us to ensure you get only the very best orangeries and which we can guarantee will stand the test of time.

A fully sculptured frame looks magnificent on an orangery…

Orangeries are so versatile because they come in so many different designs. Therefore, certain window and door systems look more suited to some orangeries than others as they feature differing contours and dimensions; all of which can have a huge impact on the visual appeal of the finished design.


The thermal efficiency that UPVC provides is a huge draw for many homeowners as it helps to drive down the cost of energy bills. It is also extremely durable and needs very little care and attention in terms of maintenance; making it ideal for those with busy lifestyles. The adaptability of UPVC enables us to integrate contours into the frame just as you would find in a traditional timber profile.


Aluminium orangeries are rising in popularity thanks to their stylish appearance, particularly when incorporated with aluminium Bi-Fold doors. Due to the slimness of aluminium frames, a greater amount of glass can be included; which aids you in terms of the amount of natural sunlight drawn in. Featuring a powder-coated finish and woodgrain effect, aluminium frames also make a huge visual impact.


Looking for windows for your orangery that look just like real wood? Heritage Windows are a revolutionary take on the traditional 19th Century timber design, and feature all the detailing and intricacy that you would expect of a window of that period. And not just on the outside either, as the peg stays, butt hinges and monkey tail handles fitted to the inside have also been exhaustively created to resemble period hardware.

Open up your orangery to the world around you…

The addition of a door to your orangery will add a further facet to the overall structure and give you handy access into your garden. We have several door solutions that can work, including Double French Door, Bi-Folding Door and Patio Door. Varying in function and ventilation, they each offer an entirely different way to enter and exit your home. When properly locked, they will also form a secure barrier between your orangery and the outside world.

Bi-Folding Doors

Keen to add the most fashionable door solution to your orangery? A set of Bi-Folding doors fit the bill as they offer a unique contrast to other door options. Featuring a concertina design, each individual door leaf can be folded to create an expansive opening. Thanks to light materials and modern design, they can be opened and closed with nothing more than a gentle push.

Patio Doors

Sliding Patio Doors can be configured so that they fit within most available apertures, whilst also helping you efficiently connect your orangery to the outdoor environment; ideal for those lacking internal space. Providing fantastic views, there is no chance of them ever blowing open as they work on a set of secure runners rather than hinges.

French Doors

The double opening that a set of French Doors provides is hugely beneficial when you want to ventilate your extension and draw in as much natural sunlight as possible. They are often utilised as a means of gaining access to the garden, a patio area or decking. However, it is also possible to have them interconnecting two separate internal rooms, such as a kitchen and dining area.

The roof of your orangery needs to provide total comfort…

When it comes to selecting a glazed roof you have 3 options; the simple but highly effectively Classic Roof; the effervescent Cornice Roof and the stylish Lantern Roof. Homeowners wanting to add an orangery to new-build property tend to favour the first two options, with those living in a traditional home prefer the Lantern.

Classic Roof

The Classic Roof is an attractive option for many people not just because of its clean, simple lines and appearance, but also because of its ability to facilitate a large expanse of glass. Its minimalist feel makes it ideal for all types of orangeries, regardless of size, shape, or how complex the design may be. The durability of the exterior is something you can put your house on, and if you so wish you can select to have a polycarbonate material as opposed to a glass roof.

Cornice Roof

The external cornice on this roof style gives it another dimension in comparison to a Classic Roof in terms of the huge amount of authentic charm it adds. It has an ability to complement the brickwork present in the orangery design where it almost appears to merge the two together. The cornice can be finished in a number of eye-catching colours to give your orangery even further character.

Lantern Roof

Orangeries date back to the 17th Century, at which time they commonly featured atrium roofs. Advances in roofing technology means that modern atrium roofs look considerably different to back in those days. However, in terms of performance, they are far more effective. Applied to the top of an orangery, it really is the perfect fit and enables occupants to enjoy the most spectacular views of the outside.

Decorate your orangery in one of many coloured finishes…

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a suitable coloured finish for the roof, windows and doors of your orangery as there is an unbelievable amount of styles available. In all likelihood, the type of frame and roof you choose will have a bearing on which colour you select, but as there’s such a broad choice, including a number of woodgrain effects, you certainly won’t be short of options.

UPVC Colours

Because of the specially developed paint application process we undertake, our UPVC frames can feature a huge range of finishes, including many that you wouldn’t expect. Such colours range from Whitegrain, White, Cream and Chartwell Green, to staple finishes such as Grey, Black and Irish Oak. A such, there is something to meet the taste of even the most discerning homeowner.

Aluminium Colours

The richness in texture and colour you find on our Contemporary Aluminium is attainable thanks to the 11-stage powder-coating process undertaken. For those who prefer a woodgrain effect, we can perform a treatment called sublimation which allows us to produce Walnut, Oak and Rosewood finishes that look exactly like timber.

Heritage Colours

Timber has a quality all of its own and it’s a look that lots of homeowners aspire to have present on their property. This is now possible courtesy of our Heritage range which perfectly mimics 19th Century traditional timber windows and comes in a selection of period colours including Clotted Cream, Cotswold Biscuit and Painswick. For a colour outside the box check out Corse Lawn and Eclectic Grey, whilst for full authenticity try English, Irish and Silvered Oak.

West Yorkshire’s finest windows and most welcoming service

We price ourselves on creating products that offer incredible strength and durability. That is why we invest heavily in the latest materials and manufacturing techniques.

Understanding what a difference new windows can make to your home, we strive to provide first-class customer service and products. Quality products mean better security, better thermal efficiency, better noise reduction and an improved living experience for you!

Energy Efficiency

A+ and A++ UPVC windows are our best performing windows in terms of insulation and energy efficiency, and are a great option for orangeries. Quality windows in orangeries makes them an environmentally friendly option. Thanks to ongoing innovation and product development A+ and A++ windows have overtaken A-rated as the best available on the market, with the insulation offered by these types of windows better than ever before. Quite simply, less heat is allowed to escape from your orangery, and more natural warmth from the sun is allowed into your home thanks to an intelligent composition of glass which delivers this two-fold benefit and reduces your household carbon footprint.


We understand that the security of you and your family is a major consideration when deciding about home improvements, whether that be windows, doors, porches, conservatories or orangeries. That is why we invest in the latest technology and manufacturing to ensure all products meet maximum security requirements. Thieves and burglars target properties with poor quality framework or locking systems. You and your family can rest assured that you house won’t be targeted for that reason!

Noise Reduction

A concern for homeowners when considering home improvements, particularly with conservatories and orangeries, is the potential for sounds from the outside world to filter into your home. The research and development we’ve put into our products ensures that you can rest peacefully at home, with the noises of the busy outside world kept outside and leaving the only noises you have to deal with coming from your family!

In some circumstances orangeries may be subject to planning permission & building regulations…

You can rely on Visual to deal with any Planning Permission & Building Regulations requirements on your behalf as we’re well accustomed to dealing with local authorities. Whilst there is a good chance that such requirements may already be met and you will therefore not need to do anything, we can help if any problems arise.

Our guide to your perfect dream orangery…

Buying an orangery isn’t easy, which is why our design consultants are always there to guide you along the way and give you all the advice you need before installation gets underway; we always make it a stress-free experience. Here are a few things you may need to consider.


Determining where your orangery is best positioned is an important aspect of the installation process. A north or east facing orangery will attract the most amount of heat and warmth early in the day; cooling as the day progresses, whilst a south or west facing structure will benefit from the greatest amount of sunshine late in the afternoon/in the early part of the evening. It’s also worth pointing out that where you decide to position your orangery will also have a bearing on the type of glazing utilised.


How are you intending to use your orangery? This needs to be settled upon at the very beginning as it will influence what size, style and specification of orangery will best serve your intended purpose. The extra floor space an orangery provides may be your primary reason for investing in a home extension. If so, then a square or rectangular design will probably work better than say a five faceted Victorian design. You may also want to equip it with further accessories such as Wi-Fi, speakers and mounted spotlights.


Very easily overlooked by some people, accessories play a central role in the overall functionality of an orangery and should never be ignored. A conversation with one of our design consultants will help you fill in all the necessary gaps and determine what additional extras are needed, such as fans and heaters. This will then be put in the final quote put forward to you.


Put two seemingly identical orangeries side-by-side and they won’t necessarily cost the same amount of money to produce. That is because suppliers often source their materials from different places, some may even utilise materials of a lesser quality than that of a rival firm, and the guarantees they provide may be completely in contrast to others in the local area. You can usually tell if a quote is value for money or too good to be true, so always go with your gut feeling and do your research.


The expected lifespan of a contemporary orangery is at least two decades; you should expect nothing less so that you get value from your investment. However, it isn’t uncommon for some form of remedial adjustments to be made after the orangery has been fitting to help guarantee its future reliability. Any work of this kind should be covered in the terms of your guarantee so that it isn’t left up to you to pay for the privilege of having essential maintenance carried out.
