Tips for creating a garden room

Placement and Space

When planning the size and location of your garden room, think about what you will use it for. You don’t need to limit your garden space to the backyard or the back of the house. Hidden from the house, some of the most beautiful outdoor living spaces offer a completely different perspective. If you are just making a deck with seating, a sunny spot is the best option. However, privacy can be compromised by not noticing the location. 

Select a Structure

Modern Garden Rooms are stunning designed, modern garden rooms. They are able to be used all year as studios, garden offices or as outdoor gardens. Installation across the UK is feasible. There are many options for custom-built solutions, including mobile shepherd huts, fully built and insulated rooms, as well as tented spaces and glass boxes. If you aren’t looking for a permanent solution and don’t need a structure, you can make a simple area with outdoor furniture. It’s worth looking into the cost of outdoor lighting and heating. Also, having a place to plug in a sound system or other media is a good idea. You will also need storage to store blankets and cushions quickly in the rain and for outdoor games.

Mix Well

It is important to integrate your outdoor space with your Garden Office Pod so that you can create a seamless visual flow. This can be done by using materials that match your garden’s design. To match your fence, you can leave the wood unpainted inside a summerhouse. A stylish backdrop for an open area with seating, such as a fence or fabric drape will give it height and definition.


Even though bright colours and bold patterns may seem a bit too loud indoors, they can work well outdoors. Your palette will influence the mood and energy of your space. It can be bold and dramatic or relaxed and refined. Bright hanging lanterns and fairy lights can be used to add drama to seating. A ‘rug’ can be painted on decking to define the seating area. You can also use exterior paints and stencil designs. For a more permanent feature, a polypropylene rug is a better option.

Make Use of the Space

Use visual tricks to make your open seating area appear larger. Mirrors can be used to create additional perspective. They also reflect candlelight beautifully during the evening. They should not be placed in an area where birds could accidentally land on them. You can create a floating wall seat with built-in walls that will give the space a more spacious feel. At night, it can also be lit to add an extra dimension of ethereal feeling. A few potted plants can be placed around the seating area to make it look more spacious. You can also get a planter for a living wall at your local garden center.

Extended Evening

A garden room can be transformed by outdoor heating, which allows you to relax late into the night. If you have a large outdoor patio, a big brick fireplace with a chimney can be a great way to bring the outdoors in. A firepit is a flexible, portable option that can be moved around. They are available in traditional and modern designs. A firepit too big will consume a lot of wood. Although they are more efficient than outdoor gas heaters, they are less eco-friendly and more expensive to operate.
