With square footage at a premium, more and more of us are looking at how to creatively make the most of the space we have. If you have a garden then this is one area that you can customise to give you more rooms and also increase the value of your property. 

As most garden rooms are classed as outbuildings they don’t need planning permission to build as long as they follow certain guidelines. This means that building a garden room on your property is a relatively stress-free way to give you and your family more space. 

What are some ideas for how you could use or set up your garden room? 

Home office 

Working flexibly has been one of the positives coming out of the pandemic for some people. However, if you don’t have a dedicated workspace it can become more of a pain than something to be happy about. So using your garden room as a home office can give you the perfect space away from the rest of your house, to be able to concentrate and get the most out of your work hours. 

Home studio

If you want to use your room to practice your yoga, or perhaps as a treatment room, there are plenty of options when it comes to design. Introducing lots of light and window features ensures you will be able to enjoy the extra room having a garden studio brings. 


Having a workout space at home can be very motivating to actually get moving. Investing in a few pieces of equipment can help you to make the most of the gym, without having to wait for other people to use them. Not having to leave the house can also make a big difference in motivation. Time-efficient workouts that you can squeeze in whenever is convenient can help you keep to good workout routines. This is especially helpful if you need to balance this with childcare or unusual work hours. 

Hobby room 

Does your hobby take up a lot of space in your home? Do you have a lot of materials or equipment? Taking your hobby out of the main house and into your very own hobby room could be just the answer you need. A bespoke space to keep your hobby materials stops them from annoying the rest of the family. 

Kids playroom 

Giving your kids the space to spread out and have their own dedicated play area goes a long way to keep the entire family happy! Create a playroom with plenty of storage for their toys and even make it multi-functional by including a daybed for both relaxing and sleepovers. Check out these inspiring playroom designs to help you imagine what could be possible in your garden room.  

Guest room 

Garden rooms leave a lot of flexibility when it comes to using them as guest rooms. You can connect them to electricity and even install plumbing if you want to have a space that your guests will love to stay in when they visit. 

Entertainment room 

Would your family love a cinema room? Or maybe a bar where you could host your friends for drinks? Using your garden room as an entertainment space can really create an impactful space that all of your loved ones will be begging to come and enjoy. 

Relaxing room 

Being surrounded by nature is a great way to destress and green spaces have been proven to reduce stress responses. So spending time in your garden can encourage well-being and help you to relax. You can carry on that theme in your garden room with the decor and relaxing activities such as a reading nook.
