Garden rooms have grown rapidly in popularity in recent years, and are fast becoming one of the most longed-for home improvements. It’s not hard to see why a garden room appeals: they’re an easy way to create additional living space without a major building project, and can be used in so many ways.
Innovative ways to use your garden room
The possibilities are pretty much endless when it comes to uses for garden rooms. If you’re thinking of adding one to your home, here are some of the most popular uses for a garden room to inspire you.
Gym and fitness room
Many of us are yet to return to the gym after lockdown, having opted to work out at home instead. Turning your garden room into a gym and fitness room is an ideal solution for those that love a home workout, but don’t have much space to do it in the house. A garden gym is convenient too; there’s no room for excuses when you can exercise just a few metres from your home. You will also save on expensive gym fees and travel time, and can even get the whole family involved.
At the start of the pandemic, lots of us enjoyed the novelty of working from home. However, finding a quiet place to work in the family home can prove to be difficult in the long-term. With lots of employers now offering hybrid working, it might be time to start thinking about creating your own office space. A garden room is a perfect solution. A separate workspace allows you to free yourself from distractions and provides a tranquil place to focus. This can increase your productivity, and keep the rest of your family happy at the same time.
Home bars have become popular in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. They are a great way to get social and enjoy time with friends and family, and of course they can be open all hours. Whether you want a classic garden pub or are looking to create a classy bar area, a garden room is an ideal space for this.
If you’re looking for a way that the whole family can make use of your garden room, why not turn it into a cinema room? Taking the family out to enjoy their favourite film, surrounded by nature, is a lovely way to relax and spend quality time together. Or, if you’re a film buff that prefers to watch films alone, a garden room cinema creates a private space where you can binge-watch your favourite films without disturbing anyone else in your household.
A games room is such a fun use for a garden room. Kit it out with a pool table, darts board and table football, and you’ve got somewhere for the whole family to enjoy hours of fun. Whether you want to use it as a hideout for the gamer in your family, or get everyone involved, a garden games room can adapt to your needs as the kids grow.
If you need to find additional space for your children to play, incorporating a playroom into a garden room is a great option. Garden rooms can be easily set up as a space for older children to play away from the main house, providing somewhere they can call their own. A garden playroom will also allow you to reduce the amount of toys that need to be stored in your home.
