Garden Rooms are becoming increasingly popular and have a huge range of uses ranging from the practical to the fun. Here are 8 ways to use your garden room to help you make the most of your outside space.

  1. Kids Playroom

Banish those toys from under your feet and set the kids up with their very own space. Using your garden room as a playroom can give any parent some much-needed peace and quiet, not to mention a tonne of extra storage space. Paint the playroom in bright colours, a mural wall is always a hit. Older kids will love you for providing them with their very own gaming den or sleepover space.

  1. Garden Gym

Get fit from home, no more expensive gym membership or dragging yourself out the house on a dark evening or early morning. With your very own garden gym you’ll have no more excuses not to get on top of that fitness routine. Do check the floor will be able to take the weight of any heavy equipment such as treadmills, or if you plan on jumping on the floor or using heavy weights.

  1. The New Local Pub

Ever fancied your very own pub? Kit your garden room with its very own bar, some comfy chairs and even a pool table and darts board. Your friends will love to hang out with you in your garden room pub. Why not even develop your garden room’s very own signature cocktail?

  1. Guest Bedroom

A garden room is perfect for extra space to accommodate your guests. A garden studio can be fully heated with very its own bathroom.

If you are using the garden room for self-contained living with sleeping accommodation, you will need planning permission. Unlike most garden rooms which are allowed under permitted development rights.

If you’re not too sure if you need permission for the garden room, you have in mind, please always check with your local planning office before.

  1. Air B&B your Garden Room

If you are looking for extra income, renting your Garden Room as an Air B&B could be the perfect solution. You will have to apply for change of use in order to legally rent out your garden room. If you don’t want to be on hand to hand over the keys, consider a key box with a code.

  1. Garden Office

Since the pandemic, more and more people have been working from home, meaning the garden office is becoming increasingly popular. You’ll need high-speed internet in your garden room, as well as decent heating and of course, the ultimate Zoom backdrop. With no commute but still separating work from home, the garden room office is the perfect solution to achieving that elusive work-life balance. If you are running a business from your home, always check insurance implications or whether you need planning permission.

  1. Garden Workshop

Turning your garden room into a workshop is the perfect way to work on DIY projects without feeling like you have been banished to the shed. Embrace your hobbies and turn your garden room into a crafting den, a space for painting, photography or even star gazing.

  1. Luxury Home Spa

Turn your garden room into the ultimate relaxation space and create a hideout dedicated solely to peace and tranquillity.

Bring out the yoga mats, comfy pillows, seated candles.

You could even use your garden room to house a hot tub or sauna. The relaxation possibilities are endless.
