The man cave and she shed have become must have escapes in gardens. Somewhere for yourself to get away from your family, an area where you can indulge in your favourite hobbies or somewhere where you can socialise away from your house.
Would you love having more space and are thinking about a garden room, but wondering if you would get use from this addition, worry no more, we have picked the 10 ten really cool uses for your garden room:
- Hobby room
Adding a garden room to your garden can allow you to have the space to indulge in your favourite hobby away from the hustle and bustle of your house. Also having the extra space can help to your hobby into something more, a successful business.
Enjoy fitness, but don't want to join a gym? You can use your garden room as your very own gym. Add in equipment, mirrors to check your form and even plumb in a toilet and shower. There are different sized rooms available so you can fit as much in as you want whilst ensuring good floor space.
- Home Spa
Create that relaxing spa experience right at home. You can fit a steam room inside, or a home sauna to your garden room. Keep an area for relaxation and meditation, with your own spa touches with oil burners. If you want to splash out, add a deck with a hot tub.
- Yoga Ashram
To create your own miniature space to escape to, turn your garden room into a place of calm and exercise. Add your yoga mat of course, mood lighting, cushions and pillows and you have your own ashram. This will help you become calm, clear and collected and feeling good.
- Your own local
With local pubs closing down, why not make your own little one in your own garden. Perfect if one of your hobbies is also brewing your own beer! Add some little touches with real pub signage, bar games and don't forget a dart board.
- Memorabilia room
Obsessed with a TV show or film franchise? Why not take it to another level with your own memorabilia garden room. Create your own viewing area, set up a mini cinema, display and showcase your collectable and put up prints, the perfect spot to indulge.
- Vintage game arcade
If vintage arcade games are your thing or you want to reminisce your childhood, a really cool use for your garden room is to make your own games arcade. Set up old arcade machines, retro games consoles and relive your youth with your friends and family.
- Home office
Okay so working from home isn't that cool, but having a home office can give you more time. Think no commute, no wasting time getting stuck to office gossip and increasing your productivity. More time to indulge in your hobbies, especially as a home office wouldn't take up that much space.
Have family and friends who come to stay and have to squash into your house, then a guestroom in your garden could be useful. When family and friends aren't staying you can even make some extra cash by renting it out on Airbnb.
- Helping hand
The final cool idea is only temporary, you can use your garden room to help your young children out, whilst they save to get on the property ladder. Instead of wasting money renting they can stay in your garden room temporarily. You can help them out without having them living in your house.
