Use Your Garden Room In These 8 Ways

Garden rooms are becoming more and more popular, and they can be used for everything from work to play. Here are eight ways to make the most of your outside space by using your garden room.

1. Kids Playroom

Get the kids’ toys out from under your feet and give them their own space. Using your garden room as a playroom can give parents much-needed peace and quiet, as well as a ton of extra storage space. A mural wall is always a hit, so paint the playroom in bright colors. Older kids will love you if you give them their own room to play games or sleep over.

2. Garden Gym

Get in shape at home, without paying for an expensive gym membership or dragging yourself out of bed in the middle of the night or early in the morning. You won’t have any more justifications not to stick to your workout routine once you have your very own outdoor gym. If you intend to jump on the floor or use large weights, or if any heavy equipment, such as treadmills, will be used, make sure the floor can support the weight.

3. Local Pub

Ever wished you had your own bar? Set up a bar, some comfortable chairs, a pool table, and a dart board in your garden room. Your friends will like spending time with you at your tavern in the garden room. Why not even create your own trademark cocktail for the garden room?

4. Guest Bedroom

The garden room is a great way to give your guests more space. A garden studio can have its own bathroom and heat.

If you want to live in the garden room on your own and use it as a place to sleep, you will need planning permission. Unlike most garden rooms that can be built with “permitted development rights,” this one can’t.

If you’re not sure if the garden room you want to build needs permission, you should always check with your local planning office first.

5. Air B&B your Garden Room

If you want to make some extra money, you might want to rent out your Garden Room as an Air B&B. To legally rent out your garden room, you will need to apply for a change of use. Consider a key box with a code if you don’t want to be there to hand over the keys.

6. Garden Office

Since the pandemic, more and more people are working from home, so the garden office is becoming more and more popular. In your garden room, you’ll need fast internet, good heating, and, of course, the best Zoom background. The garden room office is the perfect way to get that hard-to-find work-life balance. There is no commute, but it is still separate from home. If you run a business out of your home, you should always check to see if it affects your insurance or if you need permission from the city.

7. Garden Workshop

Making your garden room into a workshop is a great way to work on DIY projects without feeling like you’re stuck in the shed. Get into your hobbies and turn your garden room into a place to paint, take pictures, or even look at the stars.

8. Luxury Home Spa

Make your garden room the best place to relax and create a place where you can only find peace and quiet.

Bring out the yoga mats, pillows, and candles for sitting.

You could even put a hot tub or sauna in your garden room. The sense of ease.
