In truth, the differentiators between these three living spaces have blurred somewhat in recent years. Simply, your living space can be whatever you want it to be.
A traditional conservatory would be a structure predominantly made of glass. With glazed walls and ceilings, the space would be open up to the outside world, provide beautiful views and get plenty of sunlight. However, you can opt for a tiled roof conservatory, which will add warmth and comfort to the room, or add in some dwarf walls for extra insulation.
A key feature of an orangery is its pillars. These can be either brick or aluminium and give the space a more luxurious feel and appearance. An orangery also tends to have a pelmet around the roof structure.
Conversely, extensions do tend to mimic the design of your existing property. A standard extension will have predominantly bricked walls and a tiled roof of some kind. However, the roof can become a feature of the space with the addition of a lantern or some full-length glass panels
