Why not utilise a garden area with a garden room from DeckDirect?
They can be customised to be used as an extension of the home. A separate space that can be enjoyed all year round, without the hassle that comes with building directly onto the house.
Garden rooms are perfect for a quiet space to relax or a place that the whole family can enjoy. Each garden room can be designed unique to your requirements. They can be used for a whole range of purposes. From traditional summerhouses, studios or personal gyms, they can be tailored to suit the homeowner.
Is the garden room being used as a focal point in the garden? Or how about a private get away? Garden rooms come in a whole range of colours and designs to complement the rest of the outdoor space. The garden rooms can be designed with any style in mind. Sleek lines and large glass features can be used for a contemporary, modern look. Or a more traditional feel can be created by using a timber-framed summerhouse.
Once you’ve decided on the spot, then look at the orientation. You might want to put your garden room in a place so it has a great view of the rest of your outdoor space. Or if you want to capture the natural light and heat from the sun, you can face it either south or west.
We think it’s a good idea to put your garden room in a place that has a great view of the rest of your outdoor space. It makes sense to position the building so that it faces either south or west, this will mean it captures the natural heat and light from the sun.
It’s always best to consider planning and building regulations when installing a garden room, they mostly are under as permitted developments if they’re in the back garden, but it’s always best to check. Placing the building at the front of a property will often need planning permission.
The ground conditions and access routes also need to be considered before installing, especially during harsher weather conditions. The drainage patterns, access to utilities and the distance from the property should be thought out beforehand. Trees in the garden can be used to frame or shade the building, however it is worth considering that they may cause a build-up of leaves and debris on the garden room and this will need to be cleaned regularly.
The range of garden rooms
We supply both composite and timber garden buildings, both are ideal to use as garden rooms that can be enjoyed all year round. They come fully insulated with lots of designs and colours to suit any outdoor living space.
The natural character of timber makes it an appealing choice for garden rooms. The wood seamlessly blends with the rest of the garden and can be painted and stained to match or complement its surroundings.
Timber garden rooms can also be ordered complete with lighting, heating and electrics and are fully insulated to enjoy all year round. The strength and durability of timber makes it a perfect material to use for outdoor buildings. As it is a natural material, the timber will need cleaning and staining to maintain its fresh look and hardwearing qualities.
Composite has the natural look and feel of timber with the added benefits of it being splinter-free and low maintenance. Composite garden rooms have three times more insulation than timber. They can be ordered complete with lighting, heating and electrics so that they can be used at any time of day, all year round. Composite is a strong and durable material, perfect for garden rooms and it’s made from a unique polymer construction, so it maintains its high performance for years to come.
