3 Tips on Choosing the Right Decor for a Garden Room

Whatever you plan to use your garden room for, by taking some time to decorate, you can instantly transform an empty space into your own personal sanctuary. Here are 3 simple tips for turning your new garden room into a place you'll never want to leave.

1. Turn Your Room into a Feeling

Before beginning the decorating process, the most important factor to remember is the function of the room; what kind of atmosphere do you need to create?

For those creating a home studio to create music or art, you will need a space that can inspire you to move forward in your own creations. If you need the space for a home office, you will want a calm and peaceful setting. On the other end of the scale, if your garden space is to be home gym, you’ll more than likely wanted to feel motivated the instant you step foot in the room. It’s important to remember what you’ll use your space for as this will help you decide the overall theme of the décor.

2. Invest in Storage Space

No matter how big your garden room is, it's not the place for clutter - so to avoid it becoming just another room full of random artefacts, invest in some clever storage options to ensure you maintain some organisation. For example, if floor space is limited, rather than using cupboards or chests of drawers, build shelves across the walls. As well as keeping the floor space free, this will also give you space to display certificates, awards, art - or anything that is relevant to the purpose of your garden room.

3. Experiment with the Walls

A small space such as a garden room can be made even smaller by using too much colour on the walls - and for that reason, many people tend to shy away from decorating. But the walls can also be used to enhance the room. By simply adding wall-size mirrors, you'll actually make the space appear bigger. Mirrors can also serve as a practical feature, especially if you're using your garden room as a personal gym or a dance studio. Alternatively, if you're using your garden room as a workspace, whiteboard wallpaper can be of great use, especially for those times when an idea springs into your head and you just need a place to scribble it down.

Your garden room is your haven - so add your own personal touch by planning out the decor. By keeping these simple tips in mind when decorating, you'll easily create a space that you'll love spending time in.
