What Does an Orangery Cost in 2017?On the subject of windows and doors for your orangery, it’s important that they complement,  and not clash, with both your existing building and that of the orangery overall appearance.

An orangery that has full glazed sides would probably be at the lower end of the price range, as it would involve lees structural work, but you still could be looking at an “entry level price” of in the region of £10,000.
