As compared to conservatories, orangeries cannot be dismantled according to requirement and therefore are developed as a permanent section of a house. Talking about the conservatories they are the product of the 19th century and miles ahead from their ancestors in the form of their making.

While watching any of the periodic movies of 17th century you would have seen huge houses with orangeries built at the outsides of house with the hero staying there and playing guitar. At that time you would have additionally wished to have a similar sort of orangery created at your home and appreciate to enjoy the taste of tasty dinner with your dear ones discussing your working calendar for the duration of the day.

Well,Guest Posting coming back to our topic, i.e, orangery it can be said that it’s history dates back to 17th and 18th century when they were mainly constructed in the garden or the lawn portion of the then houses to protect the trees of citrus during the season of winter from spoiling due to fog and low temperature. But with changing time orangeries underwent vast changes and today they are called as conservatories and considered as the survivors of conventional orangeries.

Despite, of this difference still there are lots of people who get confused in both these terms because of the same types of purposes performed by both of them. Anyhow, if you are a close inspector you will understand the basic differences between both of them, ignoring the fact that both of them are constructed on the outer portion of any house. The orangeries developed in today’s scenario look like as an extended portion of a house which is mainly because of its construction with bricks and hard raw materials along with a set of windows that allows the smooth intake of fresh air during morning and evening hours. The reason behind the confusion of people between both of them is also due to use of roof made from glass which helps in enjoying the natural light and retaining the warm temperature during the winter. Interestingly, in earlier days the sunlight received during the daytime was helpful in the growth of plants to huge extent.

The orangeries constructed in earlier days were heated by artificial means, but when it comes to construction of a conservatory, they usually make excessive use of glass which, along with the flow of sunlight is also thermo friendly and helps in minimizing the electricity bills to the huge extent.

During the period of Victoria, conservatories were in high demand, but were mainly stagnated to elite groups. However, with changing time and reduction in cost of raw materials required for constructing them, they become popular among people of all groups and the trend flourished at jet dynamic speed during the 20th century.

However, now once again orangeries are being preferred by people willing to extend the existing portion of their house, but this time they are not developed to offer protection to citrus trees or enhance the growth of plants. Today, they are being developed as the way to enhance the appearance of the house and the best place to get closer to nature throughout the day and witness the changing mood of different weathers accordingly. During winter where you can enjoy the pleasure of enjoying sun bath during morning hours, during the summer you can open the windows to enjoy the fun of having a cool breeze followed by sweet sound created by rain drops during rainy season.

One more thing to know about the orangeries of today’s generation is that today they are also being used for official purpose by the persons who use to work from home or by the persons who operate their business by developing their office at home. Howbeit while constructing it for official purpose, it would be necessary to pay attention also towards the ventilation section. Having an office in an orangery not only keeps the mood of the employees relished, but also offers them an opportunity to stay close to the atmosphere.
