garden room for dining


The benefits of owning a garden room are truly priceless - it's not just a good investment, it's an excellent investment.


Yes, there is an initial cost for installation, but you will soon find that every penny pays itself off through the advantages of owning your own striking sunroom. In this blog, we'll go through four of the main reasons why a garden room is an excellent investment.



Reason 1: It increases the value of your home.

There are a number of reasons why a garden room increases the value of your home. Alongside a range of benefits that we'll go on to discuss later in this blog, they essentially pay for themselves as soon as you've had one installed!


Garden rooms can also increase the value of your property by providing extra floorspace. Floorspace is incredibly important to prospective buyers - every inch of storage counts these days! With SunSpaces, you can choose the configuration of your garden room, whether it be free-standing or attached to an existing building.

According to property experts at We Buy Any Home, a high-quality garden room can add up to 1.5x its own value to a property. This more than justifies the cost of the installation, and you could even make a profit if you decide to sell your home in the future.



Reason 2: You can use it throughout the year.

There's a reason why garden rooms are also called sunrooms! They're designed to provide a pleasant living environment, no matter the season. You may find that traditional garden structures (such as summer houses) are only suited for the warmer months - thankfully, this is not the case with your very own garden room.


Due to the reliability and sturdiness of our garden rooms, you can be sure to have year-round enjoyment of your space. In autumn and winter, garden rooms supply households with a comforting area of relaxation. In the warm months, your garden room can be enjoyed as a breezy summer paradise - even better if you decide to customise your garden room with a sliding door and a roof!

Reason 3: You don't need planning permission.

One of the most common questions we get asked is: do I need planning permission to install a garden room?


Garden rooms are very different to extensions and conservatories, which usually do require planning permission. 90% of our installations do not require planning permission. Most homes in the UK have their own development rights, and garden rooms are usually accepted within these. Remember, though - you will not be able to use your garden room as permanent accommodation.


At SunSpaces, in the unlikely event that you do need planning permission, we have an excellent design and technical team available to assist you.

Reason 4: It acts as a useful extra space.

There are many possible uses for your new garden room! It can be a space for your hobbies, a space for working, or a space to relax and unwind after a busy day. The possibilities are endless, and its purpose can be completely tailored to the needs of your home. The emotional and mental benefits of having your own dedicated space are second to none, and you will reap the benefits for many years after your garden room installation.
