A garden room creates a tranquil spot inside your home, or outdoor space, that combines outdoor elements with indoor comforts. A garden room could also be a practical solution if you’re short on working or living space. Unlike a conservatory, they don’t have to be attached to the house, which has multiples advantages. Take a look at our favourite garden room ideas below – including glamorous sheds and statement green room interiors.
Create a modern garden room at the bottom of your garden
Make use of additional space in your garden, add value to your home and create a sanctuary, work space, guesthouse or gym, with a contemporary garden room. Garden rooms don’t need planning permission, whereas conservatories or extensions do, which means they’re often cheaper and easier to build or install. They also make a stylish addition to your home as they’re designed to blend seamlessly into your garden’s surroundings.

Design a chic and calming green room in your home
If you don’t have space outside to build your perfect garden room, why not turn a tired room within your home into a statement green room? Shades of green, including olive, sage and fern, are really popular right now and we know why. Green is calming, restorative and makes us feel as though we’re in nature. Pair green walls with furniture made from natural materials, then add plenty of houseplants for a peaceful retreat inside.

Convert your shed into a gorgeous hideaway
Glamorous sheds are the way forward for summer entertaining and relaxation in the garden. We’ve all heard of ‘man caves’ but there’s a growing trend for ‘she sheds’ – a private sanctuary for being creative or a place to invite friends. Add fairy lights, vintage furniture, books and trinkets for a shabby chic vibe. Store soft furnishings inside so you can open up the space and spill out onto your lawn or terrace. Add power sockets and fitted lighting so you can enjoy your hideaway late into the evening.

Extend your living space with an indoor-outdoor room
Creating an indoor-outdoor room or sun room is a great way to expand on your living space and create a seamless flow between your inside space and the surrounding nature. If you have the budget and space, an extension with skylights and sliding glass doors will fill your space with lots of natural light and an unobstructed view of the outdoors. If you’re looking for a cheaper way to add space and enjoy the outdoors, a wooden pergola provides shelter and privacy for a relaxing day of sunbathing or an evening of entertaining with friends.
