Garden Rooms – More Than Just a Posh Shed

No matter how large their house, most homeowners feel they could do with a little more space. Perhaps you’d like a playroom for the children, an extra bedroom for unexpected guests, a place for that cumbersome running machine or just somewhere to relax and unwind. This desire for extra space has led to an explosion in the market for garden rooms. Rather than moving home or putting up with weeks of noisy and messy construction work in order to build an extension or convert a loft, many homeowners are instead choosing to make better use of their gardens.

Fully insulated, double glazed and complete with lighting and power, garden rooms are far more than just posh sheds. They can make an ideal office, home gymnasium or studio, or they may simply become an additional space in which to relax or entertain guests.

Garden rooms cost less than extensions or conservatories and do not usually require planning permission. In most cases they can be completed within a matter of days. With a wide range of designs and specifications available, it’s easy to find one that suits all your needs. If you want to use the space as a home library, you can allow room for plenty of shelving. If you decide to use it as a rehearsal space for a band, you may want to consider additional sound proofing. If you are an artist and plan to use the room as a garden studio, you can choose a design that makes the best possible use of natural light.

Garden offices make ideal work environments and can help to boost your productivity as they will isolate you from the day-to-day distractions and interruptions that occur at home. Working from home also cuts the cost of commuting or renting office space elsewhere, all of which can easily mitigate the initial cost of construction.

Having a garden room allows you to make full use of your garden all year round, rather than just during periods of good weather. A well-designed room can enhance the look of your garden and will also add to the value of your property.
