What is a garden room and why should I purchase one?

A garden room is a building in your garden that is entirely separate from your house. It can be used as an office, gym, studio, and everything in between, including as simply another room in which you can relax, away from the hustle and bustle of family life.

Garden rooms have always been popular, but they have become even more so over recent years. You could even argue that garden rooms are becoming a necessity for various reasons. There has been a significant increase in people working from home, people are spending more time at home due to the cost-of-living crisis, families might not be able to afford to move up into larger homes in the way that they may previously have been able to, and children are now living at home for longer. In short, many families in the UK are desperate for the extra space that a garden room can offer.
Garden rooms are a great option in comparison to a traditional extension, loft conversion or conservatory as they rarely require planning permission to be granted. They can be installed in just a few days as opposed to an extension which could take months to be completed. This is welcome news for families who require the extra space as soon as possible with minimal disruption and upheaval to the house and garden. Garden rooms are also a more cost-effective alternative to an extension, for example.

What are the benefits of an insulated garden room as opposed to a non-insulated garden room?

When you’re looking for a garden room extension to your living space, it is really important to make sure that you choose one that is well insulated.

Apart from an air filtration unit fitted as standard, a steel framework, and ethically sourced materials, our garden rooms here at DB Space Garden Rooms have excellent thermal efficiency. We add 100mm of rock wool in between the steel framework, which means that you will be comfortable in your garden room during the winter months. We wrap the structure in aluminium foil, which reflects heat from the sun away from the building to stop the room from becoming too hot during the summer months.

We also include an electric heater as standard, which can be controlled via an application on your phone. If you can believe it, we also fit a specialised heat recovery unit which is able to provide solutions relating to damp, humidity, and condensation. This can also be controlled via an application on your phone.

We want it to feel as though it is an extension of your home instead of a room in the garden that no one wants to use because it’s either too cold or too hot. Think of it as a garden room extension!
