Why Small Garden Rooms Make The Perfect Reading Nook

When it comes to building a garden room, size really isn’t important. What is important is getting the right one for your needs and if you are in need of a reading nook then small garden rooms are the perfect choice for you and here’s why.

Peace and Quiet

Step away from the hustle and bustle of the house. Move away from the TV and escape the family noise to enjoy your book reading out in the garden in your very own dedicated room. Imagine that silence, that peace and the right atmosphere to sink into your novel. Plus as all modern garden rooms can be easily sound-proofed you could really achieve that pure silence you are longing for.

Small Space, Cosy Space

Small doesn’t need to be seen as negative. In fact, small can mean cosy and personal, quaint and inviting, comfortable and just enough space for a few. You can make this space your own and by adding fleecy throws, beanbags, large cushions, a rug and soft lighting. You’ll create the cosiest reading nook that you will just love walking into.


If you are a big bookworm it may be the case that you are running out of room inside your home for your much-loved hobby. If that’s the case, a small garden room could not only provide you with the headspace you need but also the storage space too. Imagine a room which could have wall to wall bookshelves, even room for every book you own and space to organise by genre and being able to keep it that way!! There are so many amazing and imaginative ways to store your books, you could really let your creativity run free when it comes to this part of planning the interior of your garden room. 

Natural Light

One of the main benefits of small garden rooms is that they will provide you with plenty of natural light from their bi-folding doors and windows making it even more perfect for a reading nook. When planning your build with your chosen company, ensure that you inform them of all of your needs and explain what your room will be for, this way they can carefully design a garden room that will completely suit you and will provide you with years of pleasure. 

All Season Reading

As small garden rooms can be fully insulated you will be able to enjoy this cosy reading nook all year round. You will be able to turn on the heater and snuggle under a throw during the winter and then be able to throw the doors open and enjoy the sunshine beaming in during the summer. This is an investment that you will be able to enjoy whatever the weather. 

Be At One With Nature

This has to be one of the most lovely parts of having a garden room. Regardless of the size of your garden, where you are located and which room you opt for, all outdoor areas will bring a certain degree of wildlife and nature and being out in your garden room, you will be able to enjoy this up close. Just imagine being mid-way through your latest novel and having a bird come and perch in the window or watching the bees collecting nectar from the flowers or the butterflies flapping around your window boxes. It will be such a beautiful escape from the stresses of the real world. 

Just For You

And lastly, by building a small garden room for your reading nook you will be creating a little bit of paradise just for you. A place where you can relax, unwind, meditate, be at peace and a place where you can let your hobby take over, leaving work and homelife far behind.
