What flooring should I have in my orangery?Orangeries
As you can find in our article on “Which flooring should I have in my conservatory?” The flooring in your orangery is entirely personal to you. This means that there are a wide variety of floors available to you, depending on the look you are going for.
As orangeries were originally built as an extension to large stately homes as a place where they could grow their own fruits (hence the name), they would have had exquisite flooring. Both suitable for the purpose of the room, and that highlighted the style of house it was attached to.
A common flooring in older orangeries would have been tiled. Many would feature mosaic tiles, from either abstract patterns, to designs that depict the homeowner’s tastes. If they weren’t looking for something quite so flashy, large plain tiles would be used, and even on occasion, terracotta tiles.
We still think tiles are a great choice thanks to the range that is available and how easy they are to keep clean.
If you are looking for a warm feeling in your orangery, dark wooden floors can have a great impact on the space. It can give that traditional look, while adding a warming feeling, making it more inviting all year around.
A stunningly classic yet modern take on an orangery floor is stone tiles. Stone tiles, such as slate, are increasingly being used in kitchens, and they are just as versatile to be used in an orangery. Not only are they an attractive alternative to standard tiles, but they also have a long lifespan and very little changes their appearance or damages them.
