How to create the perfect Garden Room

21 December 2022

Take these four steps to give your property a brilliant new space.

During the COVID pandemic, homeowners across the UK realised the importance of having great gardens and outdoor spaces. Google searches for garden rooms doubled, and almost two-thirds of UK homeowners now say they would not buy a home without outdoor space.

When it comes to maximising that outdoor space, garden rooms really are the no. 1 decision a homeowner can make. As well as providing additional space (think home office, home gym, cinema room, craft room, and many more options besides), they’re also certain to add value to a property.

However, the process is full of things to consider – from choosing your specific room to having it installed and kitting it out. Here are our top four tips to ensure you get the best possible garden room for your specific needs.

1. Be aware of the spec

When you’re planning for your garden room, you need to understand exactly how you plan to use it. What purpose is it going to serve? Once you’ve answered this, you should then make a close examination of what’s included with each of your garden room options. This lets you draw up a list of all the other items and services you’ll need to source in order to create a fully functional garden room. 

2. Choose your extras

Think about all the things you’ll need to get the most out of your garden room. Will you need an internet connection? And if so, how will it be fitted? What about a corner window that provides extra natural light? Or perhaps a storage annex? All of these things are best decided on before your installation begins.

3. Communicate with your installer

Keep your installer up-to-date with all your choices throughout the process. If you’ve decided to opt for bi-fold doors rather than patio or French doors, let them know. Communicating with your installer will help your project to go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

4. Pick your styling

Depending on the type of garden building you choose, you might include an option for interior styling. The Studio steel frame garden room comes with optional interior design packs, which offer a choice of internal wall cladding, luxury hard-wearing vinyl flooring, and stylish skirting boards to give you the perfect finishing touches.

Studio garden buildings are supplied with double glazed UPVC windows and doors. And because they are delivered prefabricated, they can take as little as two days to install. You can also add a canopy, decking, or trellis if you wish.
