Could Your New Office Be a Garden Room?

Garden rooms are now already a very popular alternative to working within your actual property. The benefit is that they have more space to move around, more natural light, more natural air circulation and more privacy.

For a buyer or builder looking for an alternative, the design of a garden room needs to be attractive and practical. The appeal should be that of a separate space where you can relax, work, entertain or just spend your time in. It should also have the capacity to be upgraded in the future to be a fully furnished accommodation.

There are several options when it comes to designing a garden room. You could have a modern room with a large bay window to maximise natural light. Alternatively, it could resemble something akin to a garden shed - less windows, more privacy - an enclosed haven to escape the world outside and be productive in your work. It really depends what you want to use the space for.

A design with a bay window would be suitable for someone that is looking to use the space for entertaining guests or just relaxing in. It would look similar to a conservatory, with one side almost completely glass (perhaps replete with a glass door).

If there's enough space on your property, you could even consider building a porch at the entrance of your garden room. This is a fantastic way to create more sitting area.

Garden rooms are easily insulated using modern materials. Having said that, many garden rooms have fireplaces installed. A fireplace can create a very cosy environment in the colder months. Having said that, I would advise you ensure your garden room is as insulated as possible. It will keep it from being too cold in the winter, and too hot in the summer.

In these uncertain times of Covid-19, perhaps it's time to consider a garden room as your new office. It would certainly pay for itself if you consider all the commuting costs you would save through the years, and it would add a lot of value to your property. Prospective future buyers of your home would welcome an add-on office to their property!
