Use your Garden Room as a Home office 

Working from home is a lot more common nowadays, and many corporate jobs offer some form of hybrid working. When away from the office, you want to set up the perfect environment for concentration and focus, but there might not be an appropriate place at home to set up your workstation. A garden room away from the house can be a great solution and the best part is there is basically no commute! One of the main benefits of having your working area away from your main house is that you can separate your workspace from your living and relaxing space.


Create your very own Garden Room Gym 


In the long run, gym membership and sign-up fees can get very expensive. Plus you might want the benefit of having your privacy or your own space when you work out. For that reason, a popular use of Garden rooms is a home gym. You can start with as little equipment as some free weights and some floor matting, but depending on the space you have, you could even add some exercise machines or a treadmill.

A Garden room is a perfect place to take in all the calmness and serenity of being closer to nature while you do your yoga sessions.

The Bar at the end of your Garden.

Host Friends and Family in your Garden Guest Room


Garden Rooms provide a great solution if you want to have guests over often, and you don’t have much space or a spare bedroom in the house. Guests benefit from a little extra privacy from being detached from the main house. For extra versatility, you could furnish it with a sofa bed or a day bed, so you can switch it to seating when not being used. Alternatively, you could run your garden room as an Airbnb.

For the musically minded! A garden room is a safe and secure place to keep your instruments and practice in peace. We’ve seen some people soundproof their garden room then convert it into a recording studio for their band or radio shows.

Display your masterpieces in your own Garden Room Art Gallery

A book lover’s paradise: Retreat to your garden reading room

If reading is your passion, imagine turning your garden room in to your own personal library. You could put bookshelves along the back wall and fill them top to bottom with books. You’ll also need to invest in a comfy chair and some good lighting to curl up with your next read,and we also recommend a counter with a kettle and hot drink supplies for that all important reading refreshment.


Something for the Kids – Garden Playroom


Most of our ideas so far are geared towards adults, but you might want to turn your garden room into an extra play space for the kids. Incorporate soft play and lots of colourful shelving for toy storage, or, use the outside area to your advantage and go with a ‘cabin’ playroom theme with lots of nature-themed activities. If you have older children, it could even be a treat to have host sleepovers there, giving them an added bit of independence, but still knowing they are safe and secure nearby.


The ultimate garden room Teen-Hideout


On the theme of independence, your teens might appreciate their own dedicated space that a garden room allows. Especially as they start bringing friends over more, a separate area with access to a fridge stocked with soft drinks and snacks, a TV, and some comfy furniture will become a nice area for them to entertain their mates, away from their increasingly uncool parents. It could also double up as a quiet place to do homework and study ready for exams. Maybe you can add a day bed so they can sleep out there on the weekends, and the added bit of freedom will help prepare them if they potentially move away for University.
