Your garden isn't just an extension of your home; when it's designed to connect indoor and outdoor living, it can also add value. With less of us moving to a new house, more of us are trying to capitalise on the space we have. Nowadays, the creative use of even the tiniest patches of outdoor space is incredible. From garden rooms, acting as offices, hip hangout for hobbies or accommodating overnight guests; to summerhouses giving you extra space to entertain, and if the weather takes a turn there be plenty of space to take shelter.
Using the outside area to extend your home is becoming the norm. Summerhouses, lodges, garden rooms are making stylish work of unused pockets of outdoor space, creating a versatile space solution that will enhance your home and add to its overall value.
It's an idea we can all steal. Whether you live in a flat and have a small space to yourself or are blessed with a bigger garden, embrace the growing trend.
Here's why it's worth thinking creatively about what you can do.
Create additional living space.
By adding a garden room to your property, you're effectively adding an extra room to your house. Dependent on your needs, this additional space can be used however you please - for example, as an office, kids' playroom, teenager den, gym, artist studio, or something else entirely.
Enjoy the beauty of your garden during all seasons
A garden room will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space whatever the weather.
Save time and money
Thinking of a conservatory? A garden room is significantly more cost-effective, easier to install - planning permission is almost never required, and you have a room you can enjoy sooner rather than later.
Increase the value of your home.
If you ever decide to up sticks and move to a new home, your garden room noticeably increases the value of the property you're trying to sell.
