When deciding on the next big addition to your home, it’s important to visualise the use of the space and how you plan to make the most of it. There are several factors to consider when deciding whether or not a garden room is right for your home. Especially if you are comparing it with a conservatory or another structure.
Here are a few ideas for how to use your garden room, whether it has already been built or it’s in the initial planning stages.
The Summer Dining Room
Dinner is the time of day which can bring a family together. You cook a meal, sit down to eat and spend the time passing around stories alongside the salad. It’s one of the most pivotal bonding experiences you can have, both as a family unit and even when entertaining friends.
The entertainment value of the garden room in summer is endless. It’s a great spot for a formal dinner party, a retreat from the hot sun during a BBQ and just for everyday use – breakfast, lunch and dinner are all improved with a view.
Enhance this experience by ensuring diners have the best view out over the garden from the placement of your modern dining room furniture. The better the placement, the more enjoyable the room will become.
The Garden Office
Is working at home your ideal scenario? How about working from home in a bright, sunny, garden room? It’s one of the most practical uses for your garden room that provides the perfect productive environment.
After all, what better place to spend your days making a living than in a warm and sunny garden room designed for luxury? You can furnish the room with all of the telltale signs of an office; shelves, desk, etc. Or make it a little more modern and simplistic with a bean bag.
The Peaceful Spot
The most obvious choice for your garden room is as a peaceful, joyous spot for your everyday garden use. This is probably the most common use of the room; a place to relax and release the stress of everyday life on a daily basis. Furnish the room with some wooden, rustic furniture and you will find yourself in the perfect garden retreat.
The Guest House
If you want to impress your guests, then transforming your garden room into a swanky guest house is the perfect way to do so. With a beautiful view of the garden at night, perhaps overlooking a shimmering pond, it can really add a wondrous experience to staying over at your house.
Having this extra bedroom also offers more practical space for your home, increasing the value of the home in the long-term.
And, of course, many of these ideas can be easily melded together for one overall use of the room. A dining room can quickly be transformed into a guest bedroom if you ensure both a dining set and pull out couch can fit within the same space. And a few comfortable chairs can be kept in there for when you need that little bit of relaxation.
Ultimately, the space is what you make it and it can be just about anything you want.
