8 benefits of Garden Rooms

Thinking about having a beautiful retreat space in your garden, in perfect harmony with the surroundings? An area that is full of light, warm in the winter, fresh in the summer, and easy to maintain? We might have the right option for you. Take a look at some of the main benefits of having a garden room. 

Whether you want to create a home office, a quiet room for your hobbies or simply have additional storage space, garden rooms come in many different forms, shapes and sizes. You can choose between more traditional solutions or rooms with a more contemporary and minimalist design. If none of those please you, you can always work on designing your own bespoke garden room, as there are now many companies that offer personalized services. There are also many choices and possibilities when it comes to the materials utilized.

Besides being versatile, garden rooms are also quite easy to assemble, even without the help of professionals. Usually, they come in kits that contain all the instructions and materials, and step by step, you will see the dream room you longed for start to gain shape right in front of you. You can even involve your family or friends in the project, making it a fun activity for everyone (and it will also be done in less time!) Garden rooms also don’t need planning permission most of the time, and that alone can take a while, so you can save a few weeks. However, we advise you to check if you need planning permission, as there might be exceptional situations in which it is.

There are also benefits when it comes to materials. Wood garden rooms are machine-made, with a very strict manufacturing tolerance. The wooden structure has a more reliable guarantee of precision than on-site construction, as wood is a very structurally strong material. In addition, the wood used in garden rooms has an anti-thermal treatment. It also provides a lot of comfort, as it is a natural humidity and temperature regulator, creating a healthy and warm atmosphere. And, contrary to what many people believe, wood is a fireproof material – it can even endure fire better than concrete or steel. Wood has roughly 15% of water, thus, before it catches fire, all the water has to evaporate. In a fire scenario, often wood houses char, but don’t collapse in the same way as those build from steel or other materials.

And did you know that there are even studies claiming that wood is good for our psychological well-being? Researchers have found that rooms with wood positively affect our moods, as it is a material that brings us closer to nature and thus, reduces stress levels and even heart rates. Wood also neutralizes toxins in the air, and it’s one of the most environmentally-friendly and energetically efficient materials.
