Use a Luxury Garden Room to Extend Your Living Space
17th December 2019
Extending your living space with a luxury garden room may seem like it might be out of your price range, but it might be more affordable than you think!
If you’re running out of room in your house, you have a few options. The cheapest tends to be de-cluttering. There’s no need to hold onto things you might not need again, so freeing up valuable space by shedding some possessions tends to be the first thing most people will do. This is a great idea if you have an abundance of things you barely use, but if your home is a hoarder-free zone, then there’s not much you can do about it.
Another reason space might be limited is that your house is very full of people. When it’s the people causing the living space to shrink, there isn’t much you can do about the room you’ve got, other than looking at ways to increase it.
Why choose a luxury garden room?
When your house feels like the rooms aren’t big enough and there are not enough of them, it’s time to look for more ways to acquire space. This is often the time that people start to consider moving into a bigger house.
Moving house brings its own problems. Currently, it’s a little harder to borrow more money for a bigger mortgage, meaning your moving options are very restricted. There might not be any larger houses in your price range. Moving is also an issue if you happen to love the house you’re in. If you don’t want to leave your current house behind, then moving is not a very viable option.
Another possibility is planning an extension. This can be cheaper and less effort than moving, but still require a fair amount of upheaval. Talk to someone you know who has built an extension – they’ll probably talk about the noise and the dust!
A third, easier and cheaper option is a luxury garden room. Building a garden room is one of the lower cost options, they’re quick to build and don’t make a huge amount of mess in the process!
What type of luxury garden room would suit your family best?
Once you’ve decided on having a garden room built, you need to consider what you’ll use it for. Think about which rooms you need more of, and if that’s an appropriate option for you. Below are the most common options:
If toys have taken over your life and your lounge, having a purpose built playroom will change your life. Reclaim the space inside the house as tidy haven where no one drips over any dolls or stands on any tiny bricks. Move all the toys into the playroom and lock them in there at night. You’re bound to enjoy all the space that creates!
Garden sitting room
A house full of teens can make you feel as if your home is not your own. There will always be a fight for the TV, you’re bound to feel in desperate need for extra space. Creating an extra sitting room in your garden is a great idea. You could set it up as a teen gaming and TV den, to get them out of your hair. Alternatively, you might prefer to escape to the garden yourself for some peace and quiet.
If you have more children than bedrooms, a garden bedroom is a great option. Outbuildings can now be fitted with bathrooms, meaning the teens can have their own personal space at the bottom of your garden. This is totally safe and secure, as the doors and windows lock, so no one unexpected can get in.
