Top five uses of a garden room

Everyone wishes they had an extra room in their home sometimes. Perhaps you're in dire need of an office or you secretly long for a private cinema. Not everyone can, or wants to, add an extension onto their home though, so a garden room can be the perfect solution.

Whether you make a feature of the garden, or hide it away in the back, it's going to be hard to decide what to do with all that extra space. Do you choose the sensible option or do you splash out on a more relaxing space? If you're struggling to come up with a solution, here are the top five ideas for a garden room and why you should consider them.

Music studio

If you're a musician or composer, you've no doubt driven your other half or your family up the wall with your practising, even if you think you sound brilliant. Not to mention how the neighbours must be knocking on your door every five minutes asking you to keep your music down. A sound-proofed garden room can be the perfect solution to those problems. Not only can you keep your drum-banging to yourself, you can create a great environment for listening to your tracks too, as the sound-proofing will also block out any outside noise. This way everyone is happy.

Private cinema

Every film lover has dreamed of having their own home cinema but they often seem unobtainable and reserved for the likes of actual film stars. However, a garden room can make a great cinema, no matter how big or small it is. All you need is a big screen TV or projector, a comfy chair and some popcorn - then you're good to go. Some sound-proofing will come in handy here too, that way you can have your surround sound turned all the way up, even when your partner is in bed.

Office space

An office may not seem as exciting as a music studio or cinema, but it is the more practical choice for those who need some order in their lives. If you regularly have to work from home, an office space is a great way to avoid the chaos that might be happening in your house. It could also be used to store stuff that you don't really have space for currently in your home, such as documents or files - which could benefit from being kept in filing cabinets in your garden office.

Garden gym

Why pay for an expensive gym membership when you can have your very own gym in the garden? A garden room can be a great place to set up your very own gym, you could even hang a small TV on the wall so you've got something to watch whilst your on the treadmill. If you don't like running or weight lifting, you can make your gym into a yoga room, so you've got somewhere to stretch out and relax in in the morning, instead of having your neighbours watch you do it on the garden patio.

Guest bedroom

If you're the kind of person that enjoys having guests stay round a lot, you might want to consider making your garden space a spare room for guests. So when your friends come to stay you have somewhere for them to sleep that's much more comfortable and private than crashing on the sofa.
