We're big fans of minimalism here at SunSpaces; the less-is-more look really appeals to us, and we think that our sleek garden rooms are perfect for such designs.
Minimalism - by its very nature - doesn't require all that much in the way of accessorising, but if you are thinking of trying a minimal design in your own garden room, here are 5 items that we think will suit your needs perfectly:
Chrome Floor Lamp with Black Shade
This striking black floor lamp is perfect for a minimal design scheme, and it's bound to look brilliant in your SunSpaces garden room.
If, on the other hand, you'd prefer a lamp that's small enough to put on a table, then this bold little number will do the trick rather nicely!
Marimekko Unikko Pillowcase
This pillowcase pattern has a beautiful, almost Japanese appearance - use it on the cushions in your minimal sunroom design for comfortable, stylish results!
Mike White Coffee Table
Straight lines are a staple of any minimal design, and this pretty white coffee table uses straight lines to create a very arresting piece of furniture. It would also make the perfect home for your flower pot table lamp (see above!)
Nordic Cariboo Rug
Finally, this simple black rug will add the perfect finish to your minimal garden room and provide a bit of extra comfort underfoot.

If you're thinking of adding one of our garden rooms to your property, you'll probably want to see a few pictures before you make your mind up. Here are some choice snaps from the SunSpaces photo gallery:
Here's an elegant image with which to get the ball rolling - the sliding glass walls
give this room a seamless and modern look that's very appealing indeed.
Of course, you don't have to have sliding walls if you don't want to - this fixed panel
garden room looks exceptionally stylish in its own right, giving its owner a comfortable, attractive place in which to sit and survey the garden proper.
If you so desire, your garden room doesn't even have to be attached to your house. Our detached garden rooms
make spectacularly modern standalone features, and you may find that, by distancing your SunSpace from the property itself, you create for yourself a peaceful retreat where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of domestic life.
Everything you need to know about our gorgeous Garden Rooms!
We think that our Garden Rooms largely speak for themselves; easy to build and even easier on the eyes, they make a wonderful addition to any property and enable you to spend much more time in your outdoor living space.
However, we appreciate that you may have a few questions to ask before you commit to purchasing a Garden Room of your own, and we'd like to do whatever we can to answer them and put your mind at ease. To that end, here are the answers to some the questions we're always being asked...
Q: What is a garden room?
A: A garden room is an outdoor structure that can be either be built against the outer wall of your property or detached
as a standalone feature. Our garden rooms are available with either sliding walls
or fixed panels
; either way, your garden room will allow you to get a lot more from your outdoor space, keeping you warm, dry and comfortable even when the weather is bad.
Examples of our garden rooms
Q: What's the difference between a garden room and a veranda?
A: Simply put, a garden room has walls/windows while a veranda is open-sided. Click below to learn more about our verandas.
Q: Can I install a SunSpaces Garden Room myself?
A: Yes! Our Garden Rooms come with instructional DVDs and clear assembly guidelines, so you should find it easy to construct your new extension without any professional help. However, we do have an in-house installation team
who will be more than happy to do the work for you if that's what you'd prefer.
Q: Do I need planning permission for a garden room?
A: No, except in certain circumstances. As a general rule, planning permission is only required if you live in a conservation area or listed building, or if your garden room would cross a property border. You may wish to check with your local planning authority before purchasing a garden room, just to make sure.
Q: What sizes are available?
A: Our Garden Rooms come in a number of 'standard' sizes, but we can provide bespoke solutions if your project goes beyond our usual dimensions. Feel free to contact us below for further details.
Q: What colours do SunSpaces offer?
A: We offer three colours as standard: Graphite Grey, Cream, and White. A wide range of alternative RAL colours are available for a small additional charge.
Q: How much does a Garden Room cost?
A: This depends on the size of your garden room, as well as on several other variables. Email firstname.lastname@example.org

A garden room
makes a fine addition to practically any property. If you're unsure as to whether or not a garden room could benefit your home, well, allow us to tip the scales a little - here are 5 great reasons to add one ASAP!
1. Extend your living space.
By adding a SunSpace to your property, you're effectively adding an extra room to your house. This room can be used pretty much however you please - for example, as a dining room, a lounge, a playroom for the kids, or something else entirely! The sky's the limit!
2. Get more from your garden.
If you live in Britain, your garden is probably a frigid no-go zone from October to March. A garden room will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space even in colder months - SunSpaces are usable practically all year 'round, as this diagram shows:
It's all the pleasure of being in the garden without the unpleasantness of being cold!
3. Save yourself the hassle of a conservatory.
Adding a garden room to your property achieves almost exactly the same effect as adding a conservatory, and yet a garden room is significantly more cost-effective than any conservatory or orangery. It's also easier to install - planning permission is almost never required, and all SunSpaces products are supplied with instructional DVDs that allow you to build your new outdoor retreat without any professional assistance!
(Of course, if you would prefer your garden room to be installed by a professional, we do offer a full installation service throughout the UK.)
4. Create more storage space.
Starting to run out of room in your house? No need for a clear-out - the addition of a SunSpaces garden room will increase your home's storage space significantly! And don't worry about your property going missing, because our sunrooms are exceptionally secure, with lockable doors and toughened glass to prevent break-ins. 5. Increase the value of your home.
If you ever decide to up sticks and move to a new home, you should find that your garden room noticeably increases the value of the property you're trying to sell. After all, what discerning home buyer wouldn't want the extra space and versatility afforded by a SunSpaces structure?
