Building a garden room can turn out to be an all-purpose space for all sorts of creative and functional uses. Whether you fancy a space for work or play, a garden room can serve as a room of your home that offers an ever-changing functionality.
A garden room does not need to be for gardening. In fact, you don’t have to plant a single thing in the space if you choose not to. Depending on the style you choose and the dimensions of the room, you can transform the area in a moment’s notice to entertain guests, serve as a playroom for a child, or as a unique working space for a home-based business.
Choose the type of room that would serve as the most functional for your lifestyle. Using large and plentiful windows will let in the light during the day to save on added electrical expenses. On an overcast day, the softer natural light will ease the strain on your eyes should you choose to use the room for working on your computer or lounging with a morning cup of coffee. At night, modest lamp lighting or the light from an adjacent room can serve well while entertaining guests or snuggling on a sofa with a favorite book.
Another perfect use for a garden room is as a play area for a child. Considering your garden room is near a room where you will spend substantial time during the day – a kitchen or living room – you can fill the additional room space with safe toys and learning materials to create a special place for a little-one to explore. With this plan in mind, you can create the room with safety features that may not already be featured in your home. You can place the electrical outlets higher, make the doorways safe, and use painting and other wall coverings that are safe and easier to clean.
Of course, you could always opt for using the garden room as its name suggests. Building the room will allow you the benefit of planning just how you will prefer to arrange your plants based on the direction of the sun. Keep in mind, the perfect space can serve as more than one kind of room and your ability to map out the dimensions and features will allow you the best opportunity to make it perfect for your all of your needs.
