It’s easy to make so much more of your outdoor space at home by adding a garden room or summer house. These beautifully crafted garden buildings come in so many styles and colours it’s a great way to easily add an extra room to your home, and an extra dimension to your lifestyle and living space.
When choosing a garden room – you really need to weigh up what you will use the room for, when it will be used, does it need to be a solution to a space problem indoors? There’s many practical considerations to mull over – or like me, go with your heart and pick the one that makes it sing!
I’m just a little bit in LOVE with the idea of a summer house, a gorgeous, light and airy space to make my own.
I’d fill it with super comfortable outdoor style furniture – add a low table, some deliciously scented plants and flowers (and knowing the British weather… probably a heater too) and decamp to it at every chance I get! I can see the summer house being used for casual dinners, laid back lazy afternoons and evenings with the kids, and for me to escape to for a little early morning meditation or yoga.
If working from home is your thing – often it can be difficult to get anything done, especially if your home is full of kids like mine! Getting some peace to work can be hard – the idea of a garden office would be wonderful and definitely make my working life easier!
I also like the idea of still working from home but it being separate from actual home life. A garden room would be a great way to add a home office without needing extensive building work and the expense of an extension.
Maybe a traditional style log cabin would be a fun addition to the garden – I love the sturdy solid feel of a log cabin – it makes me want to add a little wood burner and snuggle up in there all year around! This would make an amazing extra room – either as a snug get away for the grown ups, or maybe as a den for the kids – somewhere they can hang out with friends.
Of course a little bit of my heart will always want a beautiful cedar greenhouse – these traditional style greenhouses are elegant, relaxing to spend time in and the perfect place for the green-fingered to spend time cultivating fresh, organic homegrown fruit and vegetables.
With a gorgeous range of painted summerhouses available for sale you are literally spoiled for choice! My ultimate advice – when getting a summer house or garden room would be – go with your heart! It’s definitely the way I work and it always makes me the happiest!
