When people start to enjoy art they often begin in the kitchen or spare room. No one intends to make a mess, but it’s easy for paint spills and sticky stuff to overrun the house. If you’re good at cleaning up, no problem, but accidents can still happen. Imagine your frustration arriving back from the shops, to find the dog has added a “Hollywood Walk of Fame” set of paw prints to something you’ve spent hours working on.
We’ve worked with loads of artists who rather than tear their hair out have considered transforming outdoor room into a garden art studio.
NO NEED TO TIDY UP EVERYDAY IN YOUR OWN GARDEN STUDIO! YOU CAN…
- Leave your paint pots out
- Leave canvases to dry without the risk of being disturbed or knocked over
- Have enough space to keep a large number paints, brushes, canvases etc
AND IN ADDITION TO THE PRACTICAL BENEFITS THERE ARE CREATIVE ONES
- Privacy to express yourself
- Freedom to organise the room how you want
- Space to plan and take artistic risks
If you don’t currently have an outdoor room you could create a space designed with your chosen layout and include a number of additional features:
- Rainwater harvesting system to supply water for the sink
- An integral storeroom
- A separate washroom or a wet room environment
So if your home feels like ‘a paintball zone ‘ where full body armour is needed for protection, consider using a garden room for your art studio. Take advantage of the many uses for your garden room and spend your time finishing your masterpiece.
