As we have noted many times in the past, our garden rooms are a great way to improve both your indoor and outdoor space, providing you with an attractive area for relaxing and indulging in your favourite pastimes. We often get questions from customers about the size of the space they have to work with, as they worry that their outdoor area isn't big enough to accommodate one of our contemporary garden rooms. If you are one of those people, or if you're simply curious about the variety of ways in which you can integrate our designs into your space, then take a look at some of these suggestions:

A Cosy Patio Nook

As you can see from the design below, it is possible for a contemporary garden room to fit a small area without looking crowded. The open design of this room gives an unrestricted view of the garden, avoiding any sense of restriction while also providing a cosy shelter with easy access to the garden.

A Bright and Open Family Space

This bright, minimal garden room provides a useful and attractive, multi-functional space, making it the perfect place for entertaining the family. By tracing the house horizontally instead of outwards, the room makes excellent use of space without taking up too much of lawn or distracting from the house itself.

A Spacious Reading Room

This light and spacious garden room cleverly wraps around the original shape of the property; providing the the owner with lots of additional space without extending too far into the garden. The inclusion of sleek, sliding, glass walls also means that the occupants can easily access their garden, while it also ensures that there is an abundance of light in the room; enough for a relaxing reading session!

A Tranquil Escape

As well as home extensions, we also provide a range of detached, contemporary garden rooms. These are ideal if you would like your space to provide a refreshing escape from the rest of your home, and also allow you to create an independent, unique seating area in your garden. As you can see from the image below, this works brilliantly next to a water feature, allowing you to listen to the sounds of the water as you unwind.

A Sheltered Seating Area

Even in very small spaces, our contemporary garden rooms can provide an attractive and convenient shelter. As demonstrated by the veranda below, our rooms can be tailored to create a smooth and harmonious transition between the existing shape of the home and your new structure.
