5 great optional features and designs ideas we offer for your garden lodge


Garden Room in Dorset

A garden lodge can be used for such a great variety of uses that often the designs vary a great deal from customer to customer. This functionality can range from a garden office to a gym, playroom, or man/she caves. The possibilities are huge.


There are a number of ways, whatever the building’s function, that can help make your lodge more practical, free up wasted space, or add an extra element to your garden.



Extra storage

An optional extra that can be incorporated into our garden buildings is a separate storage area. If you are anything like us, you can never have enough storage, and these ‘hidden door’ storage rooms create a discrete and functional extra space to keep garden tools, furniture, bikes or anything else you can think of. This might be especially useful for you if you have had to remove your garden shed to build your garden room, but still need the storage that you might have otherwise lost.


Garden office with a Sedum roof

Sedum roofing

Sedum roofs are also known as ‘living roof systems’. These can be a great way to add an extra aesthetic element to your garden room and can help a large building blend into its surroundings when looked at from above. Sedum roofs are made from small growing succulents from the sedum, or stonecrop family. They are low maintenance, not requiring mowing, watering or deadheading. All that is required is feeding once a year, a few weeds removed and for gutters to be kept clear.

When choosing a sedum roof you are making an eco-friendly decision, sedums roofs will become a microclimate for birds and insects, minimising the impact of a new building on the environment, they also happen to look great.


Flooring Oak Single Plank (Engineered Upgrade)

Engineered Oak flooring

Our garden lodges come as standard with laminate flooring, that is hard wearing and looks fantastic. But for that extra touch of class, we can recommend installing optional engineered oak flooring. This hardwood looks stunning and will certainly last for many years. We can offer our customers a range of flooring options and are always available to discuss the options we have available.


Remote lighting and smart technology

Smart technology has progressed leaps and bounds over the last 5 years, and now there are a host of options available for turning your garden lodge into a smart home. We can offer our customers the option of having remote control lighting that can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet. Also, we can install a smart thermostat that can allow you to control the heating for you lodge from a smartphone, meaning you can set the temperature when away and have great control over your lodge’s heating and hot water.




If you want to add an extra dimension to your garden lodge, then decking can be a great way to connect the outdoor space with your garden building. Decking is an optional extra that can transform a garden space and increase its year-round usability. Our decking options are either hard wearing composite decking in grey or redwood colour, or Winchester style, pressure treated wood decking. We can also add outdoor lighting and patio heaters, to make sure your outdoor space is an option all year round.
