Bespoke Beautiful Orangeries
Owning a period property has its ups and down especially if it is situated in a conservation area or is a listed building. That said there are a lot of benefit’s to owning a period property, there is something rather special about owning a place that holds so much character and history.
Renovating this type of property has to be dealt with in a sympathetic way; you need to work with the property rather than trying to re-invent it. If you prefer light and uncluttered spaces then don’t buy a small country cottage trying to turn it into something that it isn’t.
Work with professionals who have a portfolio of working with period properties, this way they will understand the process required and the basic dos and dont’s when it comes to planning needs and materials that are suitable for the job.
Not all home improvement projects work well with a period property, for example fitting new PVCu windows and doors do not have a sympathetic relationship with old buildings. Instead like for like replacements should be fitted to keep the appearance of the building as it was originally.
What does work well when renovating a period house is adding a bespoke orangery! Orangeries are the perfect partner for period properties offering style and elegance that blends effortlessly into the existing building.
The sturdy appearance of an orangery creates a seamless merge with the existing building, you can walk between the two rooms without noticing any structural change, and this is something you would not encounter if you walked into a conservatory.
