3 steps to planning the perfect Garden Room

21 December 2022

In 2022, a report from Rated People showed the importance UK homeowners place on having multifunctional spaces and rooms. For people looking to create more space in their property, a garden room can be a perfect solution.


Quick to install and less expensive than traditional extensions, garden rooms have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. By instantly creating a high-spec space that’s perfect for work, rest, or play, it’s no surprise that they’re proven to add value to a property.


If you’re considering adding a garden room to your property, the Eurocell team is here to help. To get you started, here are our top three steps when you’re planning your garden room.


1. Consider its use

One of the attractions of a good garden room is its versatility. A Studio garden room, for example, could be used as a home office, a home gym, a cinema room, a toys-and-games room, a craft room, a man cave, and countless other options too.


You need to take time to consider why you are installing a garden room, because that decision can have a direct impact on both the layout and positioning of the structure in your garden.


If the plans for the garden room are for it to be a hideaway and a place to relax in, then positioning the garden room so it’s south facing will provide plenty of sunlight late into the summer evenings.


Alternatively, if the garden room is going to be a garden office, consider its proximity to the house and how far you would be willing to walk outside to your workspace in the cold winter mornings.


2. Determine the features

To give you the perfect space, what additional features do you need?


Eurocell’s Studio garden rooms come with external lights, an electric pack, and UPVC patio or French doors as standard. Additional extras, such as optional bi-fold doors, a corner UPVC window for extra light, and a storage annex, are also available.


If you’re going to use your garden room as an office, movie room, or simply somewhere to relax, then a strong internet connection might be high on your priority list. You could opt for Wi-Fi extenders or wired ethernet cables. The important thing is to do the research and choose the right option for you.


3. Understand how it will look

The final step is to give consideration to how your garden room will be decorated and styled.


Some garden rooms will come with additional pre-packaged interior options, such as an internal décor pack. The Eurocell Studio décor pack includes a selection of beautiful, hard-wearing luxury vinyl flooring options and a choice of internal cladding finishes, helping you create your perfect look.


If you’d like to create a personalised space, a garden room which comes as a blank canvas, like Eurocell’s timber frame Studio garden building, is an ideal option.


On the outside, choose from either horizontal or vertical cladding and select from a range of colours, including Anthracite Grey, Turner Oak, Anteak, and Sheffield Concrete.


Bright and bold garden room interiors are great for creating a fun place to escape day-to-day hassles. If you’re planning a functional office space, then placing a desk in front of an east- or west-facing window will provide natural light while avoiding harsh direct sunlight.
