An orangerie is the perfect balance between an extended room and a conservatory.
It gives you the feeling of a more enclosed space but the glazed roof gives you much more natural light.
The epitome of modern living, an orangerie allows you to effortlessly incorporate contemporary design features such as speakers and down-lighters.
Your own style
Just like our conservatories, Lorimer orangeries by CR Smith are bespoke and designed and built to your exact specification, right down to the last detail. That’s why it’s essential our consultants work with you, so we can create the ultimate extended living space for your home and lifestyle.
Along the way we’ll take care of all flooring, electrics, heating and ventilation, and handle any local authority permissions you might need. We’ll even decorate – so all you have to do is enjoy it.
See your new Orangerie in 3D
See and explore your new orangerie before we build it. We’ll create a fully immersive, 3D digital model, using the photographs we take when we visit to survey your home. Choose finishes and details and we’ll add them to the model. To get an idea of how it works, explore the examples here.
Our Climate Control system allows you to regulate the temperature in your conservatory. It will heat or cool, dehumidify and purify the air at the touch of a button or set timer. We believe it is the perfect way to control the climate in your conservatory and get the most out of it all year round.
Every CR Smith conservatory includes a SMARTGLASS® roof, in a choice of four colours. It features a dual-action coating to the outside which helps keep the roof cleaner for longer and a special surface on the inside which retains heat and reduces glare.
Flooring. Tiles or timber
Our engineered hardwood floors have a touch of luxury to any space. Made from 18mm thick cross-ply timber with a beautiful sold hardwood skin, our engineered floors can have a lacquered or oiled finish to suit your room.
Your orangerie will be finished with beautiful veneered sills and solid skirting boards in your choice of Royal Oak, Natural Ash, American Cherry or Far Eastern hardwood. All timber will be hand-finished in wax or varnish. We can alternatively offer an engineered wood, finished in brilliant white if this would suit your home better. We’ll paint the walls too.
Why should I choose a Lorimer orangerie?
When you choose a Lorimer orangerie, you’ll enjoy the finest service from the moment you contact us. And we can offer more choices than your average provider. You’ll enjoy a bespoke design, giving you a build that meets both your specification and those of your local building regulator.
Do I need planning permission?
Every installation and build is different. The requirement for planning permission is based on your type of property and the size of orangerie you want to build. The regulations are different again should you live in a listed building or conservation area.
Our design team would be able to give you specific information based on your individual specification.
Do all CR Smith orangeries have a bespoke design?
Every orangerie is built with your home in mind, and we’ll change specifications to suit your requests. In a country with a rich heritage like Scotland, we understand that every house has its own unique personality.
