Outdoor Rooms

The use of outdoor rooms has grown over the last decade with more people working from home or just wanting a space to get away to.
In comparison to adding an extension to your house, it can be a cost effective way of adding space. Not only will it add value to your property but can become a key part of your garden.
Depending on the space available it could be a key focal point, or it could be hidden away in a secret part of the garden.

A terrace area could be designed around the structure for entertaining or relaxing. You should also consider the outlook from the building. Do you want to look out onto a wide open space or feel secluded with luxuriously planted borders around you?

There are many companies that supply and install garden rooms such as this, and they come in a variety of shapes and styles, contemporary or traditional, as well as off-the-shelf or bespoke.

Insulation is important especially if you want to use it in all seasons. You also need to think about whether you need additional security for it, in terms of locks and alarms.

It is important to think about how you will use it and thus what size you need, and how insulated it needs to be. You may also need to be run power to it for lighting and heating. Stone and brick built buildings are the most expensive, whilst timber is a popular choice.
Glass is an alternative option for a more contemporary feel.

You should check with your local planning office before you purchase anything as there are rules that govern the dimensions and distance from a boundary of the structure.
Further regulations are involved if it will be in a conservation area or if the main building is listed.
