The sunshine is returning and homeowners are venturing more and more into their gardens again, subsequently being reminded of the potential their outdoor space might have for some extra living quarters. Garden rooms are certainly growing in popularity, and here are a few reasons why.
1) Entertaining space
Most of us love outdoor entertaining, but thanks to the unpredictable British weather, planning BBQs or garden parties is often left to the last minute. With a garden room, however, you can enjoy hosting outside and are still able to make the most of the scenery if you have to head indoors.
2) Home officeAccording to government figures, the proportion of people who worked from home increased from 27 per cent in 2019 to 37 per cent the following year, thanks to the pandemic. It also revealed that 85 per cent of employees who were conducting their work duties at home in June last year would like a flexible approach to home working, splitting their time between the office and their residence. Seen In The City stated that using a garden room as a home office can “help you to be able to focus better”, as a result of not wasting time chatting to colleagues. The time also saved not having to commute also means “you can be more productive”.
3) Hobby rooms
Whether you are an aspiring yoga instructor, love sweating it out at the gym, or enjoy nothing better than knitting, why not use your garden room as somewhere you can carry out your hobby without distraction?During lockdowns, people were forced to conduct their favourite pastimes at home, which may have increased their desire for more space to be able to do so properly.
