Outdoor SunSpaces News

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!

Thanks to our commitment to upholding a fantastic standard of customer service, previous customers have been kind enough to provide us with some words of thanks and praise. Here are just a few of their lovely comments:
  • Sara Redman from London said she was "over the moon" with her new SunSpace. She had been looking at garden rooms for a while, but was frustrated because the rear of her home was "not ideal for a straightforward standard garden room". However, we demonstrated that SunSpaces are suitable even the most challenging projects; Sara said that "the whole process was really straightforward and the Greensquares team took all the hassle factor out of the project for me."

  • Andrew Clay stated that his garden room project was "well supported from start to finish" and that our installation service was "efficient, quick and clean". He also said of his visit to our Slough showroom that "it was good to see the product on display and the staff were very helpful".

  • "The beauty of this garden room is that it can be designed to be so flexible." That's a quote from Lee Workman, a customer of ours in Cheshire. He praised our in-house architect, who helped him to "envisage how it would all look, especially with my awkward outside wall shape"; he also mentioned that "it looks even better in real life!"

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'. 


Provence Plant Stand

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.

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.

All-Year Art Studio 
Nature is known to be one of the greatest inspirations behind some of the most famous works of art, making garden rooms a great place to find some outdoor inspiration while remaining warm and dry.
