Why You Should Consider Getting a Garden Pod
17th May 2019
Moving house in order to gain the extra space your family requires can be extremely costly and such a hassle. House prices have soared, more people are choosing to extend and stay put meaning the choice on the market isn’t at it’s best and once you’ve forked out for removals and estate agent fees you can be left feeling a bit deflated. If it’s space you need and you don’t have the room to extend, have you ever thought about adding a garden pod to your outside area? Not only are they more cost effective, but they also provide your family with another room and they could even add value to your home.
Here are our reasons for considering a garden pod!
Cheaper than an extension
Building a garden pod and kitting it out will be far cheaper to do than building an extension on your home or moving altogether. The cost will vary depending on whether you go for a DIY kit, buy in a ready-to-install garden pod building or get a bespoke garden room built to your own specification.
Obviously, your choice will come down to what you need, your personal tastes and budget but without any extra hidden costs or the hassle of needing building permission, you can be sure you’ll be getting an affordable room that will extend your home.
Once it is built the choice of use is completely up to you and can easily be adapted to any of these ideas. Just think, no more spare room office, you can say goodbye to the chilly garage home gym or rid your house of that pool table that takes up far too much room!
Our garden pods are fully insulated which means they can be used all year round without becoming too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter.
The insulation used is the same as in a modern house which means you will get the exact same result and feel assured that it will be a room that will last you.
All Your Creature Comforts
Along with the insulation, a garden pod will also be fully heated and have electrical points in order for it to be fully functional for whatever you choose to use it for.
Speak to your chosen installation company to ensure you get all the sockets you need and in the areas that you’ll require them. You could also consider installing a kitchenette, a log burner, spotlights or mood lighting.
A New Focal Point
What could be better than a gorgeous new focal point in your garden? We all love something new, don’t we? It gives us something to get excited over, something new to chat about with our friends and family and a garden pod can really transform your space. As long as you get the perfect spot and go with a style that will complement your existing garden, you will be creating a building that could really bring that wow factor to your home.
A Space For You
I think this is one of the most important aspects of owning a garden pod– having that space that is just for you. A place you can retreat to for some peace and quiet. A room where you can work productively without any distractions. Perhaps an area to do your daily yoga? Or maybe a space for your hobby that needs to be unleashed? Whatever you choose to use it for, the best part is that it is all yours.
