In the summer, we tend to find ourselves spending more and more time in the gardens. Particularly thanks to the heatwaves that the country has been experiencing the last couple of months. But do we always want to be sat in the direct sun? Why not consider a garden room, where you can still enjoy the shining sun, but with a spot of cooling shade?
What Is A Garden Room?
A garden room is a cross between a conservatory or an orangery, and a summer house. Usually, these are built at the bottom of your garden, similar to a summer house, with usually at least one solid side. The others are typically large panes of glass, which are usually completely flexible to open up the whole space.
This means that the doors on the front of your garden room, will fold entirely out of the way, combining your garden and your garden room into one space.
A garden room can be anything from a big open space, to a sanctuary away from the main house, with some even having their own kitchenette. Some will opt for electricity to be fitted to create a fully functional space, while others will opt for a more minimal concept, as a way of keeping it true to being an outdoor space.
Why Go Bespoke?
While you can find many places that will offer a ready to go garden room or a garden room built from a plan, how much do they meet your specific needs?
Here at Brinard Joinery, we like to create bespoke garden rooms to truly encapsulate your needs and styles. Going bespoke ensures that:
- The room fits your space
- Your style is taken into consideration
- Existing garden features are considered
- Functionality is unique
- Additional uses can be included
How Else Can You Use A Garden Room?
A garden room is typically used as a space to relax out of the sun, or even the breeze that is passing through the garden, while still enjoying the great outdoors and the views across the garden. After all, you can enjoy your garden as well inside the house.
However, over the years, we have noticed that garden rooms are increasingly being used for a multitude of functions.
Firstly, as a den away from the main house. Whether this is a man cave, mums escape from the kids, or a teenagers sanctuary away from family, and even down to a playroom for the kids. This usually means that the space needs to be sufficient to use all year around. So, if you might have other uses for your garden room, make sure you speak to the team today to ensure your design can take into consideration use in the winter and make it functional in all seasons.
