Garden rooms are detached structures designed to be installed in the homeowner’s backyard. They’re robust enough to provide functional space but small enough to offer sufficient circumvent planning permissions. Homeowners can use their garden rooms for a variety of buildings. Garden rooms make the ideal office, man cave, home gym, summer house, and the best multifunctional garden studios.
Join the thousands of UK residents taking full advantage of bespoke garden rooms. If you would like to discover more about these fully insulated garden offices for a home extension solution, read on.
What is a Garden Room?
A garden room is an aesthetically attractive and functional building designed as a home extension for extra space. A garden room can be installed anywhere on your property for less than it would typically cost to build a quality home addition. Garden offices are insulated garden rooms with standard high-quality exterior cladding and come engineered as 10-year quality timber garden buildings.
For those who work from home, luxury garden rooms provide year-round use and double as a home office complete with functional doors and windows. The building comes with flexible finance options, maximum wall thickness, state-0f-the-art electrics, and optional HVAC systems. Discover a wide range of garden structures and cabins available in different sizes today at Garden & Rooms.
Garden rooms can suit your needs regardless of size with none of the hassles of an expensive office lease. Designed with aesthetic and practical needs in mind, they assemble quickly and require minimal maintenance. For fast delivery, use a garden room company with a stellar reputation for the best out buildings in the United Kingdom.
Site Preparation and Garden Room Designs
When you work with Garden & Rooms, our team will do most of the site preparation work for you. All you need to get fast delivery for a summer house is to provide us with is a flat, cleared area large enough to accommodate your room garden and our specialised equipment.
Garden Room Design
Regardless of using garden sheds as a nursery, a games room, a garden office, or a building garden, its function doesn’t matter. Our design team can customise your structure to meet your unique needs with maximum wall thickness. Customers can trust us with designing their man cave and building garden rooms because we deliver custom products that meet demanding European homeowner requirements.
Floor Cabins Design
High-quality double glazed construction products and professional construction are necessary if you want maximum comfort and convenience. We start the installation process by drilling holes in the ground to accommodate a pier foundation similar to those found in cabins. Installing a pier foundation maximises airflow beneath your garden office to prevent wood rot and condensation.
Once the pier foundation is installed, our team will install pre-manufactured metal floor framing. The framing provides a sturdy foundation for wood floors insulated with three-inch-thick rigid board insulation and supports maximum wall thickness for UK compliant building codes.

Windows and Doors
Our innovative and functional use-garden room design is a little different when it comes to doors, windows, and overall style. Our windows and doors come engineered with double glazing and thermal double glazed insulation. Double glazing is much more energy-efficient than single-glazed windows. The extra level of protection from the elements keeps your buildings well-insulated all year around.
Walls and Insulation
Our one-step interior walls are all fully insulated ensuring robust comfort and sustainability. One of the reasons this becomes critical, it helps you to save money on climate control. Our garden rooms are perfect for both a summer house or a year-round residence and are light on your wallet.
Garden & Rooms offers many design options to accommodate your garden’s size and unique landscaping and exterior style preferences. If you have questions about any one of our available options or customisation packages, simply contact one of our representatives today for immediate and prompt customer service.
At Garden & Rooms, each of our customers is unique and has different tastes and flavours. If you have specific design requests, our team will be happy to accommodate them to the best of their abilities. Kindly note, all requests must comply with UK national and local construction regulations.
The Importance of Professional Installation
If you’re planning on self-assembly (DIY) for installing your garden room, you’ll need more than just standard home and garden tools. We strongly recommend that our customers let us install their games room or garden office because a variety of specialised equipment is usually required.
Unless you have experience constructing garden buildings, cabins, tiny-homes, or other complex structures, let us do the hard work for you. Our tradies bring all the 10-year building products and tools required to get the job done right each and every time.
Structure Size Planning Permission in the UK
Circumventing the need for planning permission isn’t just about a structure’s size. There are a few qualifications you’ll need to consider as well.
Your garden room should:
- Be only one storey high
- Have a maximum height of 2.5 m if you have a flat roof
- Have a maximum height of 4m if you have a dual pitched roof
- Have a maximum height of 3m if you have any other type of roof
- Be located more than 2.5m from your property line or be less than 2.5m high
- Contain only Line 2 electric wiring installed by a professional tradie
If you want to update your garden room to turn it into a living space, you may also need permission. You’ll need to check with authorities whether you can build it as a permanent residence or just a summer house.
Benefits of Constructing a Garden Room
Every homeowner has a different set of reasons for constructing a garden room. That said, there are a few expected benefits you can reap from installing one in your backyard. Whether you want a home recording studio, a games room, or a new garden room? Garden & Rooms offers prompt installation and style with every garden shed we install and service in the UK.
Broadly speaking, you’ll enjoy more advantages from your garden room when you work with professional contractors. We learned from our friends at Green Retreats. These specialised structures are more refined than the average garden shed. Rooms & Gardens knows precisely what it takes to construct high-quality garden rooms in any type of landscape environment.
ADDED LIVING SPACE
Modern families have gotten used to having a certain level of comfort and convenience, including sufficient space to accommodate everyone. Whether you’ve added children to your family or plan to open your home to aging family members, you’ll benefit from having enough room for everyone.
PLENTY OF PEACE AND QUIET
You deserve a place to call your own that’s free from all the chaos of everyday life. A garden room provides just that equation. The buildings installed by Garden & Rooms are insulated not only against the cold but also against excessive noise with double-pane windows and doors. If you fancy a retreat or a place to unwind, Garden & Rooms sanctuaries are bullet-proof much like a heavy-duty skip bin.
One of the great things about garden rooms is that they can be built to homeowners’ specifications. Tailoring your garden room to your needs and preferences will make it feel cosier and facilitate whatever intentions you have in mind. Garden & Rooms provides versatile designs suited for your specific requirements engineered for maximum comfort and longer service life.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
When you work with Garden & Rooms, you won’t have to worry about lengthy disruptions to your home life. Your garden room can be installed quickly and easily by professionals, even if you don’t have ample space in your backyard. We make your dreams and designs come true while providing pleasing aesthetics to your home’s existing hardscaping layout.
Whether you plan to use your garden room as a home office or a space for hobbies, you’ll have plenty of privacy. Constructing a new building means you won’t have to worry about what’s happening inside your house. Our quality-built structures come with everything you love, including cabinets, electronic devices, furniture, and more.
SUITABLE FOR ANY PROPERTY
There’s more than one reason that garden rooms are designed to be small. It helps to circumvent the need for permissions whilst simultaneously ensuring that they can be installed in small spaces. Since all the components come pre-fabricated in small parts, we can taxi them through your house to install your garden room in your backyard.
Building a garden room is very cost-efficient compared to constructing an addition to your home. You don’t need to worry about planning permissions, nor will you need to spend a small fortune on heating, lighting, and maintaining your new space.
INCREASED PROPERTY VALUE
Even if you don’t plan on selling your property, having a contemporary garden room in the yard will increase your property value. You’ll have more equity, and if you do decide to sell, it could be easier to find a buyer. Potential buyers will be just as interested in a luxury garden room as you once were.
Common Uses for Bespoke Garden Rooms
You can use your garden building for just about anything. Some homeowners install desks, cabinets, and other fixtures and use them as work from home offices. Others only want a place to escape from all the noise and chaos of modern family life.
Here are a few of the most common uses for garden rooms as well as our best selling services and products:
Important Considerations when Choosing the Right Garden Room
There are many designs for contemporary garden rooms. If you're working on a budget, purchasing a standard garden room may be more cost-efficient than investigating custom options. You'll still have plenty of choices when it comes to design.
TIP #1: CONSIDER THE INTENDED USE
It’s better to have an intended use for your garden room in mind before choosing a model. If you plan to use it as an office, you’ll need cabinets and space for a desk. If you’re going to install a backyard gym, it’s better to use an open floor plan. Knowing the time of the year when you use the building the most can help you to determine how much insulation and electricity you’ll need.
TIP #2: CHOOSE A DESIGN THAT MATCHES YOUR PRIMARY DWELLING
Modern families use exterior design as a means of expressing their unique personality, and that’s great. The fact that there are plenty of pre-manufactured garden rooms to choose from means you can do the same with your new space. Think about your house’s exterior decor and landscape and how the garden building will fit into the garden design.
TIP #3: LET IN THE LIGHT
Garden rooms are more energy-efficient and pleasant to spend time in if they’re well-lit. Choose a design that features a full-sized glass patio door. Many garden rooms also feature full-sized windows. Try to install them on the south side of your garden room.
TIP #4: PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
Are you planning to make additional alterations to your landscape? If so, make sure your garden room won’t look out of place. If your new landscape is thoroughly contemporary, choose a garden room with a modern design. There are also more traditional options available that will look great with classic landscaping features.
TIP #5: PRIORITISE QUALITY
At Garden & Rooms, we always prioritise quality materials and quality when we build our garden rooms. You don’t have to worry about sub-par materials or premature wear and tear when you work with us. The same quality cannot always be said of amateur contractors or friends who claim to have experience building sheds. For a well-designed garden structure to last, quality construction matters.
Do Garden Rooms Need Planning Permission?
The garden buildings constructed and engineered at Garden & Rooms are insulated for a reason. Insulated garden rooms provide warmth year-round. You don’t have to worry about winterizing your garden room or removing temperature-sensitive furnishings or electrics. Energy efficiency combined with robust thermal qualities is just a few of the amenities you get at Garden & Rooms.
If you plan to use your garden room year-round, you can also install a temporary or permanent heating system. We have certified electricians who install the wiring, ensuring safe electrics. Our garden shed electrics can easily accommodate several mini-split HVAC systems and energy-star appliances.
Residual current devices (RCDs) provide a stout and independent bus bar that can be separated from the main house and shut off when storing for the season. Saving worry from added utility bills and risk of structural damage.
The cost of heating your garden rooms building should be entirely reasonable. Those who plan to install garden buildings and use them as fully insulated summer houses can lock the doors and windows, shut the heat off, and return in the spring to find their garden rooms ready for use.
Is it Cheaper to Build Your Own Garden Room?
You may be tempted to assume it would be cheaper to build your garden room yourself, perhaps with the help of some friends. Unless you’re a professional contractor with all sorts of industry connections, that’s unlikely to be the case.
Garden & Rooms works with building material suppliers and our contractors to install bespoke garden rooms. We supply 100% of the materials required to construct your garden room, and if you live within 56 km of our facility, we’ll send contractors to your home at no additional expense.
We offer a full range of contemporary garden rooms that come pre-manufactured to keep costs low whilst ensuring that your needs are met. We can also design a luxury garden room constructed to your unique specifications. For the average homeowner to build a DIY garden room, purchasing materials, hiring subcontractors to perform specialised work, and obtaining permission is no small task.
The choice to purchase a professionally built garden room isn’t just a matter of cost. It takes a good deal of time, equipment, and expertise to design and construct a garden room, especially if you opt to undertake this project alone. Don’t underestimate the value of your time.
Can You Sleep in a Garden Room?
In short, the answer is yes, but UK building codes require additional permissions for structures intended for permanent inhabitation. To live in your garden building year-round, you’ll need to file the appropriate paperwork with your local government body. However, installing a bespoke garden room to accommodate the occasional guest is a different matter.
You’re permitted to install household fixtures such as sofa beds, cabinets, and other amenities without worry as long as your garden room complies with building regulations. Sleeping on the couch in your backyard man cave occasionally is not an issue in most regions. Additional permissions are only required if you plan to designate your garden building as a living space intended for year-round use.
