Outdoor SunSpaces News

 

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,  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 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.
 
To help you create your vision, why not take advantage of our free 3D design service? This allows you to visualise the new space before installation, and discover which use of space would work best for you. For more design inspiration, follow us on Twitter.

One of the most popular uses for our structures is as a garden office room, and it isn't difficult to see why. Not only does it provide you the convenience of a dedicated, at-home work area, it also allows you to watch the world go by as you complete your tasks, placing you in a non-clinical working environment. 

 
If you're thinking of purchasing one of our garden rooms with a view to using it as an office, or if you already have a garden room you're looking to use in this way, we have a few suggestions to help you turn it into an attractive and functional work station! 

Cool Planters

While you may think that being in your garden is more than enough greenery for you, house plants can be a simple and attractive way to add some colour to any office. It also allows you to bring the outside in, creating a sense of unity and harmony between the two spaces.
 
 
We love these, modern, minimal planters, both from Etsy! The one on the right is from Pasinga, and the one on the left is from Sort London.

Get Organized

While this may seem like a more practical suggestion, that doesn't mean that it has to be boring! There are lots of cool storage accessories available these days, allowing you to keep everything in its place while adding some nice touches to your decor scheme.
This hanging copper basket from Henry & Future is ideal for keeping notebooks and letters safe, while this wooden organiser from Chocolate Creative is great for storing notes, gadgets and pens!
 

It all Starts With a Desk

Again, this may seem pretty obvious, but there are so many different designs available that it may be hard to make a choice! Depending on your needs, you could go for something minimal and modern that compliments the rest of your space, or you could go for a design that gives you lots of storage and handy segmenting abilities. 
 

The Micke Workstation from Ikea is ideal for people who need a lot of storage, giving you space for, books, files and whatever decorative pieces that take your fancy. This Puro desk from Dwell is certainly one for the image-led, although you always have the freedom to add your own desktop and side table storage if you wish.


Bring me Coffee

Lets face it, if you're going to be using somewhere to work, you're going to need a hot beverage to get you through (no matter how nice your space is). Like everything featured on this post, we think that coffee breaks can be as stylish as they are essential. 

Want to keep that shiny, new desk stain free? Use these pretty, copper coasters from Mia Fleur. This Cafetiere from Lakeland is also a great vessel to serve up your brew of choice in!

Contemporary Garden Room
 
Sadly, garden rooms sometimes gain a bad reputation in the home design world, due to the fact that when poorly executed, they can do more to distract from your property than to enhance it. At SunSpaces, we go to great lengths to ensure this is never the case with any of our designs, ensuring that all of our contemporary garden rooms are tailored to perfectly compliment both your indoor and outdoor space. 
 
When planning your garden room, we will do our very best to ensure that all elements are taken into consideration, in order to incorporate this new detail seamlessly with the rest of your home. We will take all of your requirements into consideration, putting our vision and your ideas together to create a space that is both attractive and comfortable, ensuring that the aesthetic of your home is enhanced and improved. 
 
Unlike other garden rooms, our SunSpace designs are intended to extend the existing beauty of your home. We don't see the process as 'adding on an extra', in our opinion, there should be as little disconnect between the new and existing elements of your home as possible. While you may want the space to have a unique feel, or to offer a different experience from the rest of your home, you should be able to create this without causing the area to seem mismatched or forced.
