Traditionally, an orangery has more brickwork combined with aluminium pillars for enhanced privacy, creating a luxury, room-like feel. They commonly have a pelmet around the roof for additional thermal efficiency too. As for the roof design, you have the freedom to choose whatever roofing system you like and it will still be considered an authentic orangery. This includes a glass lantern roof or a solid tiled roof.
Finally, home extensions are designed to look like a natural extension of your property. They will commonly have more of a solid feel due to more brickwork and feature a tiled roof, but many homeowners are now choosing a hybrid roof that features glass panels to invite more light inside. Extensions are often selected for their versatility and year round comfort.
