As we sit here in the dark, looking out at the rain splatter against the window pane it really is the perfect time of year to be thinking ahead to summer. The restorative nature of a bit of sunlight is spectacular, and if you are looking to do something different with your home, a garden room could be the perfect summer retreat. Why not think ahead to summer and plan your perfect garden room, which will act as a transition between your home and garden, act as a room to entertain, to relax in, to play games in, or just to sit with your plants and relax.

Think ahead to the summer months. The evenings run later as the light stays out for longer, you have a glass of wine or a bottle of beer in hand, the sun shining on your face as a light breeze gently strokes your ankles. Your kids are having fun around you, or your friends are round for a barbecue. Life couldn’t be any better could it? Now imagine a bespoke, high quality garden room that sits perfectly at the end of your garden. It sits as a transition between your home and garden, but can be used in a wide variety of ways.

How can you best utilise a free standing garden room?

Your perfect garden room could be an extension of your garden, filled with plants and flowers, a small comfortable chair for you to sit back and completely unwind and relax in. With plenty of light to fill the room it offers a perfect sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of your home. That’s often why people choose to purchase a free standing garden room that sits at the opposite end of the garden, rather than add an extension to the back of a property. A garden room used for relaxation can be a great space to sit down with a book, a beer, some music, and to while away those long summer nights in peace and tranquillity.

Another popular option is to use a garden room as a games room, for both kids and adults. It provides a completely safe space that your children and their friends can use as a dedicated games room, with board games, consoles and larger games such as kids size pool tables, all present. For adults the room can be used to entertain friends, the ideal area to retire to after a dinner party or barbecue.

It takes time to plan the perfect garden room, and it is important that you find a supplier that has a reputation for high quality and understands exactly how to add that touch of elegance to your garden that will make you the envy of your neighbours, friends and family. No matter how you intend to utilise your brand new garden room in the summer, understand that it can take time to go through the planning, design and installation of a garden room. Now is the perfect time of year to get ahead, research suppliers and choose the right garden room for your needs, desires, and budget.
