Though it may seem far away during current UK weather conditions, Spring is just around the corner, which means that it's the perfect time to get your patio and garden rooms kitted out for the (hopefully) warmer seasons! Here are a few of our favourite items:
This modern and minimal bench set comes in both black and white, making it perfect for fans of monochromatic decor. It can also be used as both an indoor and outdoor dining solution, which means that it's particularly suitable for garden rooms, which marry the best of the two. If functional yet stylish family dining is what you're all about, then this is definitely the piece you should be investing in this spring.
These dining chair pairs will certainly inject some vibrancy into even the dullest and drab of gardens, breathing new life into a space that has just made it through the dreary winter. Mix and match the sets to create your own cool combination, either by pairing two brights together, or by combining them with the black chairs for a checkered design.
If you love rustic, industrial design, then look no further than these beautiful handmade stools from Gas and Air. Made with timber and topped with natural slate, they would make a unique edition to any garden room or patio. Thanks to the distinctive colours and patterns in these materials, you can also be sure that no two pieces are the same, making your item truly one-of-a-kind.
This quaint little table from Odd Limited is ideal for fans of vintage chic, making it the perfect serving companion to your traditional tea and cake. If the arrival of sun and daffodils makes you want to crack out the bunting and china, then these are the designers to be watching for your next garden update.
Those who wish to stick to traditional wicker but add a modern twist should definitely check out some of the pieces available from Primrose, like this cosy curved sofa set. Not only does the round table fit in perfectly for all your casual dining and lounging needs, but you can also add in additional sofa sections if you need to, expanding and splitting the sofa according to the demands of your space and your number of guests.
Our garden rooms are intended to offer a clear and unspoilt view of your outdoor space, allowing you to enjoy your surroundings all year round from the comfort of your home. Even if you're an experienced gardener who has managed to design an attractive and inviting space, there is always room for a few extra accessories to give it some added charm.
Here are some beautiful and unusual decorative outdoor items that we found online, to lend you some inspiration for improving your garden in the new year.
Temerity Jones Swan Planters
This set of three planters make a delightfully kitsch addition to your garden, reminding you of peaceful lakeside walks and picnics. The fact that they come in a trio also offers you a range of arrangement options, whether you wish to display them together or separately.
Teapot Birds Nest
One of the best parts about observing your garden is seeing the variety of wildlife which comes and goes with the seasons. This means that it's always a good idea to introduce feeding and nesting solutions to your space, in order to encourage more bird and insect activity in your garden. This delightful teapot nest is an unusual take on the traditional wooden nesting box, offering a great solution for those looking to create the ideal 'English country garden'.

This stunning, grey plant stand is perfect for those who are looking to inject a rustic French garden vibe into their space. The best part is that it can be used both outdoors and indoors, so it would look just as good inside your garden room as a pretty yet practical home for all your house plants.
Alert Hare Ornament
This metal-look hare is a clever and eye-catching way to introduce more natural elements to your garden, even if you're sadly not fortunate enough to receive many real garden visitors. Thanks to the weather and frost resistant properties of the material, your ornament is also sure to retain it's visual impact year after year.

It is an oft-quoted truth that people who work outdoors are generally happier than those who don't. Fresh air and natural light really help to sustain a good mood over the course of a working day - the question is, how can those of us who spend our weekdays cooped up indoors get more of these things?
If you work from home, the answer may well be right in front of you. SunSpaces garden rooms
make fantastic workspaces, and if you're ready to relocate your operations to the back garden, we're the people to call.
Why add a garden office?
There are all kinds of reasons to get your work done in a garden room instead of in the living room, sat up to the dining table, or - heaven forbid - in bed. These include:
- More natural light. Natural light has a very positive effect on one's brain and overall health compared to artificial lighting. It's even been suggested that exposing workers to natural light improves their performance!
- Fresh air. Want to let some fresh air into your workspace? If your workspace is a garden room, all you have to do is open the doors. Of course, if you're working under one of our verandas, you don't even have to do that much!
- A chance to get away from everyday life. One of the biggest challenges facing those who work from home is the separation of work from life in general. Your home is probably full of distractions, and having a garden office that's dedicated to work and completely removed from the rest of your house could do wonders for your productivity.
Why choose SunSpaces?
Okay, so you've decided to add a garden office to your property - now, what makes SunSpaces the right people for the job? Well, for starters...

If you thought that our sunrooms were only suitable for sunny days...think again! We may call ourselves SunSpaces, but our mission is to help our customers to get the most from their outdoor spaces no matter what the weather's doing.
With autumn now upon us (and winter right behind it), a lot of British gardens will now remain unused until spring arrives and the temperature becomes a little more friendly. But the changing of the seasons doesn't have put your outdoor living space into retirement every year - even when it's cold outside, a sunroom from SunSpaces can still be a wonderful place to spend an afternoon.
Staying warm in your sunroom
One of the obvious benefits of a walled garden room is the protection it affords you from the elements. Wind, rain, and cold weather won't bother you when you're snug inside your SunSpace...and if the sun should happen to show its face, you can always open the doors and let the warmth in!
Need a bit of extra heat? No problem - our garden rooms and verandas can be supplied with 2KW heaters if required. Of course, our glass extensions are naturally quite warm on the inside anyway, but if you like things extra-toasty, who are we to judge?
We also offer optional draught seals to complement our sunrooms. Fitting one of these will ensure that cold draughts cannot enter your garden room and spoil the warm, cosy environment you've created for yourself.
