It is a well known fact that improvements that add more usable space to your house tend to be the ones that increase property value the most, which is why conservatories, loft conversions and extensions have been so popular for decades. However, what more and more people are now finding as a way to extend usable living space that can be just as versatile as an extension but cheaper and easier to achieve, is getting a garden room.
If you have suitable space in your garden, then erecting a garden room there can be quick and easy, as there are usually prefabricated buildings that are simply moved to your property and set up – this means far less building work than creating an extension, and you get to use your new space much quicker. Speed is not the only advantage of outdoor rooms, however. Here we look at some of the other reasons why they are such a trend in home improvement in the UK right now:
Making Better Use of Space
With an extension, you can only really build on from where your house ends, however a garden room can be created anywhere suitable on your own land. This means if you have a bit of garden you aren’t doing anything with but which is not adjacent to the house, you can still create new usable indoor living space there.
An outdoor room can have electricity supplied to it and so can have light, heat and power. This means you can use it in any way you might consider using your indoor rooms, and it becomes extremely versatile. People use them as play rooms for their kids, home gyms, art or music studios, home cinemas, party rooms, or just secondary lounges. With it being separate from the house itself it can be a good way to isolate noisy or messy activities like music or painting, and it can also be a good place for teens and older children to hang out and get some privacy when they have friends over while still being somewhere you can keep an eye on them!
Enjoying Your Garden
Some designs of garden room allow you to get a great view of the garden around you, making them a good place to relax and entertain with that ‘outdoor’ feeling, no matter what the weather. They can also make a good place to quickly move into if you are having a barbecue in summer and the weather changes for the worse, without having to feel like you’ve properly moved the party indoors! You can really get the most out of your garden all year round by having a covered, warm place you can sit in and read, relax or have a peaceful drink, too.
It is easy to see how garden rooms offer so much to homeowners and are such an attractive proposition as home improvement projects. Visit this website for more information about getting your own!
