Get in the know with garden buildings

A garden can be a sanctuary for many homeowners, whether it’s a space to relax in the sun, unwind with a drink, entertain friends, or spend time pruning plants. It’s a private space to enjoy peace and quiet after a long, hard day.

But your garden isn’t just a great place for you to relax and unwind. It can also be an area which can be transformed into an extended part of your property, providing a multifunctional space which can be used all year round.

Making improvements to your outside space is a great way of upping the value of your property. In fact, a garden building can add around 5% to the value of your home and is a great option if you’re looking to create additional living space.

And in most cases, a garden building doesn’t require planning permission for installation, making it even easier to add that much-needed extra space you require for your family.

Read on to discover what you need to know when adding your very own garden building to your outdoor living space, as shared by the experts at Eurocell.

Prepare your plan

In 90% of cases, Eurocell’s Garden Buildings don’t require planning permission, being designed to meet, if not exceed, building regulations whilst ensuring that the height falls within permitted development.

But it is essential that homeowner’s make plans in advance and double check that no other stipulations will stop the garden building from proceeding.

On rare occasions, you may require permission for your garden room if you want to build in front of the principal elevation of your home, live in a conservation area or a listed building.

If you are unsure, your local planning office can look into this for you.

The foundations

Often a final thought for many homeowners, a strong, stable foundation is essential for maintaining a sufficient support for your garden building for years to come.

In most cases, we would recommend installing a garden building on a level concrete base or with ground screws. These are large screws that a secured deep into the ground, providing a level surface for your garden building to be built on safely.

Location, location, location

Selecting the position of your garden room is also a vital part of the planning process when installing a garden building.

At Eurocell, our Kyube garden buildings have been designed to blend seamlessly into the surroundings, so will work in any space throughout your garden.

Consider the purpose

From a peaceful office space to an at-home gym, playroom or just simply a place to relax, a garden building offers a functional area that can work for you and your family.

The Kyube range of garden buildings from Eurocell are customisable to suit your preferences. From size, colour and finish to the style doors (French or bi-fold), there are plenty of options to choose from to create a living space that suits its intended purpose.

By deciding on this prior to purchasing your garden building, you can ensure that the space offers all the added benefits you’re looking for in an extension of your home, and a multifunctional space in your garden.

The finishing touches

At Eurocell we offer a range of customisable options to ensure your garden building is a true reflection of your style and fits effortlessly with the aesthetic of your home.

Choose either horizonal, or the new vertical cladding, for the outside of your garden room and select from four popular shades; Anthracite Grey, Turner Oak, Anteak and Sheffield Concreate.

You can also opt for internal design packs, which include wall cladding, vinyl flooring and PVC-U skirting amongst other additional extras to create a luxurious and bespoke finish to your new garden building.
