Broadly speaking, and as God saves the Queen, what UK resident doesn’t dream of owning a home bar? They make hosting guests more festive, foster a sense of community, and impress your mates. But that’s only if you have a new garden bar outback? Unfortunately, not everyone has the space for a bar area inside of their home, but the one’s at Garden & Rooms solve that bloody problem.
There’s no need to worry about taking up too much space with an outdoor garden bar. Outdoor garden bars are grand for summer nights; however, they’re not ideal for year-round use. People who want to drink with mates regardless of the weather conditions can absolutely install a garden bar if they fancy.
Don’t sit around waiting with bated breath for COVID to end before skipping on over to the neighbourhood pub. Instead, skip stones and keep reading to discover all of the information required to install a garden bar.
What is a Garden Bar?
A garden bar is a type of home bar product constructed outback instead of in the main house. High-quality garden bars are far more versatile than either log cabins or the average tiki bar. They have more space than some indoor bars and offer more versatility in terms of style than a cabin does.
Requesting information about plumbing fixtures such as bar sinks and a toilet can make the bar room more comfortable to use. It’s also essential to have good lighting, but all the categories of a garden bar available at Garden & Rooms come with built-in electrical wiring, so lighting isn’t a problem
Benefits of Having a Garden Bar
Outdoor garden bars offer the perfect venue for hosting family events. Some bar models also feature large, bi-fold doors that make it easy to host outdoor parties in the summer and accommodate more guests. Whilst other homes have more interior room than others, for smaller houses, it can be tough to host robust parties.
An outdoor tiki bar may be a good alternative for pleasant summer nights, but weather constraints may limit its use. Hosting loud social events can cause a lot of disruptions to home life. Families need to make accommodations for kids and pets, keep things reasonably quiet, and clean up immediately. These problems are much less pronounced with any categories of such outdoor bars.
A Robust Selection of Different Bar Models
Some homeowners prefer a contemporary style, whilst others are traditionalists, and that’s just fine. There are plenty of categories of garden buildings that can accommodate any personal style. All models come with electricity, fully-insulated walls, double-glazed doors and windows, a metal roof, and more.
- Once the delivery and installation have been completed, homeowners can decorate their bars in whatever style they choose. You can install bar stools, a TV to watch the big game, ambient lighting, and more. DIY bar design can be enjoyable, rewarding, and double as garden storage.
- Who doesn’t love getting together for some drinks with mates? There are plenty of categories of engagement, but having a pint with loved ones is one of the best ways to keep up with friends. Having a dedicated garden bar can make that dream a reality.
- High-quality garden bars can increase property values. In fact, so can all categories of garden rooms. Potential buyers love little details such as professionally designed detached structures, so this kind of outbuilding can also be a spectacular selling point.
How to Maintain Garden Bars
Maintaining a full garden bar is pretty straightforward. Most maintenance can be done DIY, especially if customers opt for additional weather protections like shiplap cladding, wood preserver, and NAC NAD curtains.
Here’s what it takes to keep these garden bar structures looking their best for decades:
- Clear debris off the co/Uk roof periodically.
- Check timber materials for signs of rot or wear.
- Update and clean roof gutters, if applicable.
- Perform an annual visual inspection of the roof and exterior walls.
- Check interior fixtures like electrical outlets and plumbing periodically.
- Repaint or restain timber doors and windows as needed.
- Replace bar stools and other furnishings when they get worn down.
- Sweep or vacuum the interior space at least every few weeks.
- Trim back grass and other plants around the foundation during the growing season.
- Keep the sidebar stocked with alcohol, snacks, cookies, and everything else that guests might want on the menu.
Building Fully-Functional Bars
Some homeowners with a DIY streak may assume that they can save money by building their garden bars. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case.
Professionally designed and constructed buildings and homemade garden sheds belong in two completely different categories:
The first one will raise property values and provide lasting benefits to homeowners.
The second one costs a lot of Euros, creates headaches, and goes unused in the end.

What to Expect During the Installation
Once homeowners decide to have a bar professionally installed, they’ll have to choose from different categories of styles and amenities. Some are better suited to this use than others, so check out the menu and choose one that looks like a good fit.
Our installation team will do everything possible to accommodate your needs. That includes making arrangements for delivery of the timber, other building material, and navigation of the installation. You can trust Garden & Rooms with all of your needs and specific details. There are several bar categories of garden rooms to explore.
These categories are designed to make it easier for customers to choose the right model from our delivery menu. When our contractors arrive, expect them to treat you with respect. Kindly note, they may need some help with navigation if the building components need to be taken through the house into your backyard.
Designing the Perfect Garden Bar
With many pubs across the country shut down, there’s no better time than now to start brainstorming about a stout bar design. Creating the perfect garden bar isn’t just about keeping it well-stocked with lager and liquor?
To get things right, homeowners should keep three things in mind:
- Site Selection: The back garden is usually the best place for an indoor/outdoor bar. It should offer plenty of privacy and enough garden space for a seating area and other amenities. Just make sure there’s a way to get people and deliveries to the back without entering through the house.
- Building Size: The bar structure itself should be large enough to allow a reasonable number of guests to assemble inside. It should not, however, be so big that it overpowers the site or the landscaping. Size is the first thing to consider when it comes time to the building design.
- Guest Comfort: Guests at the garden bar need to have enough room to feel comfortable and welcome. Everyone will have a better experience when there are chairs or stools, along with plenty of product selection. Try to incorporate indoor and outdoor seating into the design and leave plenty of open floor space to move around.
The garden rooms sold under the trading name Garden & Rooms offer a perfect middle ground. Each model includes a “hatches roof overhang” low enough to avoid planning permissions and plenty of floor space to work with.
Space to Mix Drinks
There’s little point in having a garden bar if bartenders at home don’t have enough space to mix drinks comfortably. Make sure bartenders can keep their favorite products behind the bar, and consider including shelves and a small sink. It should make organization and cleanup much easier.
Product quality doesn’t just refer to stocking top-shelf liquor. Homeowners will also need to consider the quality of the building products used in their structures. When they purchase a kit from Garden & Rooms, property owners can rest assured that they’ll get only the best in terms of both services and quality. We even offer a 20-year guarantee on all order
Personal Taste and Style
It’s fine to look through photos to get ideas before starting the planning phase. That said, the best garden room designs contain a highly-personalised product selection. Trends come and go, but a garden pub designed at Garden & Rooms never goes out of style.
If there’s enough room, homeowners may want to incorporate some extra amenities. Including a WC inside the garden building reduces the need to let potentially rowdy guests into the home. For other amenities and utilities, it’s all a matter of predicting intended use.
Adding a television makes your garden bar the spot to be and on hot nights whilst air conditioning makes all of the difference for comfort. Similarly, heating the building will make it usable during the winter and keep your mates coming back for more entertainment and cold drinks.
The average garden pub sees the most use in the summer. This inherent seasonality means it’s equally important to incorporate additional functional spaces into the landscape. A patio in front of the building can make a huge difference, for example. If there is enough space, homeowners may also benefit from installing an outdoor fire pit.
Unique Concerns for Small Spaces
Homeowners don’t need to have robust, sprawling lawns to install a garden pub. Choose a building product that will fit in a small space, and get creative about using it.
Fold-up counters, bar seats or stools with built-in storage, or carefully designed cabinets can all help to make the most of a small amount of space. Purchasing smaller furniture may also make it easier to fit multiple guests into the building if inclement weather sends everyone indoors.
When space is an issue, moving between the garden and the interior garden room easier. Incorporating bi-fold doors brings the outside in, making the building feel like a part of a small landscape feature. It also induces guests to spend time moving back and forth between indoor and outdoor spaces.
It’s acceptable to construct a garden pub for personal and family use. Not everyone likes to invite over dozens of loud guests. These beautiful structures are also ideal for small, intimate get-togethers. In hindsight, having fewer guests also makes it easier to hoard a library of high-quality product liqueurs, wines, and ice-cold stout lagers.
