Oak Sun Rooms, Orangeries, Garden Rooms and Conservatories
Made fashionable in the 17th century, orangeries, sunrooms, garden rooms and conservatories traditionally allowed the gentry to enjoy exotic or delicate flowers and fruit in their grounds that would otherwise not have survived in colder climates, or to allow the appreciation of views without the need to suffer the cold or wet environment. All have the majority of their walls in glass. The main difference between the three is the roof makeup.
Oak orangeries tend to have a flat opaque roof, sometimes with a glass lantern in the middle, which can be vented.
Oak sun rooms, a term interchangeable with oak garden rooms, tend to have a fully pitched tile or slate roof, like a small oak house.
An oak conservatory is a a room with both an glazed oak frame roof and walls.
Both oak garden rooms and oak orangeries provide benefits over oak conservatories as they are much less susceptible to overheating during the summer or heat loss in the winter, as they have very well insulated roofs.
