Creating extra space is a challenge in most family homes. How many of us spend time de-cluttering the kids toys and sticking things in the loft simply to help create a sense of space?

In these modern times we need the rooms in our homes to work hard; maybe in your house the dining room doubles as a playroom or the spare room as an office?

When your home simply isn’t working for you in terms of space, but you are reluctant to move or undergo the hassle and expense of an extension, consider a garden studio.

This contemporary solution to creating extra space is an ideal way to add an extra room to your property without the upheaval of major building work or renovations.

Installed in your garden, a garden studio creates a tailored, multi-purpose space that is perfect for families. The rooms are equipped with power and are well insulated so can be used all year round, so that you stay warm and dry even in the depths of winter. Many people use garden studios as home offices as there are plenty of options for phone and internet services; for home-workers having a space separate to the main house can be beneficial. The short walk to the bottom of garden is enough of a distance to make it feel like a place of work and reduces the potential for disruptions! For those looking to be totally self-sufficient while in the garden office consider installing an ensuite bathroom and kitchen.

Of course the studio could be used for any function; the kids’ playroom, grown-up retreat, artist’s studio – the possibilities are endless! Check out our full range of garden buildings.
