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!

Garden room uses
 
Extending your home with a SunSpaces garden room opens up all kinds of possibilities - just think of what you could do with that extra space!
 
Here are just a few examples of how our garden rooms can be used:
 
1) Outdoor Dining Room
Our easy-to-build DIY garden rooms make excellent dining spaces. If you're used to eating off your lap in the living room, we can help you to create an elegant, secluded dining room where you can sit up to the table and really appreciate the meal and the company of the people you're eating with. Get the good crockery out, because you'll be hosting a lot of dinner parties from now on! Find out more >
 
2) Garden Lounge
Fancy a new space to relax in? Don't bother refurbishing your front room - extend your home with a SunSpace instead! Our garden rooms can be filled with beautiful furniture and turned into a second living room with a stunning view of your flowerbeds. Find out more >
 
3) Hot Tub Room
Our structures - particularly our garden verandas - are ideal for housing hot tubs and jacuzzis while sheltering you (and anyone else who might be in the tub) from the elements. Find out more >
 
4) Children's Playroom
If you have young children in your home, a SunSpaces garden room is a great way to give them a little more space in which to play. The spaces we provide are perfect for board games, tea parties, and practically anything else your kids might want to do! Find out more >
 
5) Outdoor Office
Working at home can be quite distracting, particularly if there are other people in the house at the same time. Using one of our garden rooms as your home office allows you to get away from the TV and any other distractions so that you can get your work done in peace without interruptions. Find out more >

Garden room

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?

SunSpaces garden room

The garden is a colourful place, and we think that our garden rooms should be just the same! Here are some fabulous accessories from around the web that we think would look absolutely amazing inside our SunSpaces:

Vintage floor light
Eglo Vintage Mint Tripod Floor Light
(from DuskLights.co.uk)
While we usually tend towards contemporary designs here at SunSpaces, we do love the occasional vintage find. This lovely mint-coloured tripod lamp has a certain old-fashioned beauty, but we think that the colour and the design would look right at home in a modern living space, too! 


Personalised planters
Personalised Planter Crates
Flowers are an obvious means of adding colour to your garden room, but why not go one step further and plant your seeds in a container that's every bit as colourful as the flowers themselves? These beautiful crates are available in a variety of different colours, and you can personalise them with any message you want!


Contemporary Artwork
(piece above from MackenzieThorpe.net)
A great way to make your garden room look brighter, livelier, and even more modern! We are a big fan of Mackenzie Thorpe's work, but don't worry if the painting above isn't to your tastes - there's a whole world of wonderful artwork to choose from, and thousands of different canvases that would look great in our garden rooms!


Pixel Rug
Sticking with the contemporary theme...feast your eyes on this magnificent rug! It's the perfect piece of home decor for gamers, geeks, and 21st century homeowners of all stripes. If added colour is what you're after, you can't go far wrong with this bright little number!


Patterned Floor Cushions
Finally, we come to these beautiful cushions - we think that their floral patterns would suit the outdoorsy feel of a garden room perfectly. Bonus points if you get one with pom-poms around the edge!
