There has been a huge rise in the popularity of garden rooms in the UK over the last few years. They offer a way to extend your living space in a cost-effective and simple way with quick installation and using sustainable materials. They can also add value to your property and can provide a functional private space for almost any purpose you choose.

What are Garden Rooms used for?

Work and business

How you use your garden room is, of course, entirely up to you. With the rise in people working from home, some have found a garden room especially useful as a standalone office. Not only do garden offices provide a practical, private space to work productively, but many value the idea of being able to physically separate their work and home life, where you can finish the day, close the door on work and relax at home.

Garden rooms have also become popular for small businesses as they reduce overheads and add a personal touch to their service. Hair salons, personal trainers and yoga instructors are just a few examples of sectors that can run from garden workspaces, allowing you to work from home at a reduced running cost and still keep a professional separation from your home life.


Whilst there are many products on the market that are designed to help you make the most of your outside space for those long summer barbeques with friends, none have quite managed to solve the issue of the unpredictable British weather! Even the best-equipped garden space with patio heaters, gazebos, and a stunning patio or decking area can still be defeated when the wind gets up or it starts to rain.

We offer insulated garden rooms where you can bring the party inside, while still being outside. Some people like to install a fully stocked bar, a sound system (with the option of additional soundproofing so as not to disturb the neighbours), and plush comfortable seating to create a warm, inviting space to entertain, whatever the weather.


Sometimes you just need a sanctuary that’s away from the chaos of the house. A place where you can relax, surrounded by nature. Whether this space would be for you to just read a book, watch TV, pursue a hobby, or perhaps it might even be used as a den for your teenagers where they can kick back and relax with their friends.

These garden room ideas are just the tip of the iceberg; the possibilities are endless. There really is nothing else that has the level of versatility and comfort combined with ease of installation and cost-effective purchase.

Conservatories were a popular option in years gone by, but they can often be impractical, and even unusable at certain times of the year, either becoming stifling greenhouses in summer or freezing cold in winter. Extensions are expensive and can be complicated with a long process and considerable disruption. A garden room is the perfect solution to add extra interior space to your home in a cost-effective, insulated, simple way.
