With more UK workers than ever opting to work from home, even houses that would otherwise accommodate 100 percent of a family’s daily activities may start to feel small. There’s no need to build a home addition when you can have your own garden studio.
A garden studio provides added space and an extra level of privacy for UK homeowners. These specialised structures are far more versatile than the average run-of-the-mill garden shed. They are fully insulated, wired, and designed to provide a comfortable environment for working in a hobby room whilst creating art.
To see why a garden studio is such a growing trend for European homeowners, keep reading to discover the answer.
What is a Garden Studio?
A garden studio is an outbuilding designed for installation in residential gardens. These small to mid-sized garden buildings are also known as garden rooms. Don’t be put off by the name. These structures can be used for anything from office space to yoga studios, artists’ studios, or even kids’ playroom studios as well as many other types of Garden Room Studio.
All of the garden rooms designed and installed by Garden & Rooms are appropriate for year-round use. They come fully wired by a professional electrician, meaning, it’s safe to plug in lights, simple devices, and sensitive electronics. Property owners can also have them connected to utilities or opt for plumbing amenities.
Common Uses for Garden Studios
You don’t need to be an artist to make full use of a garden studio. It’s just as common for these garden buildings to be used for other purposes providing it doesn’t contain a sleeping area and conforms to UK building regulations. If the intended use does, you may need planning permissions before we can construct your garden studio.
Property owners can use their garden buildings as:
Benefits of Having a Garden Studio
Does it make more sense to install a garden studio or build a home addition? This is one of those categories where each family's needs are a little different, but installing a detached building makes logical and financial sense for most.
Whether homeowners intend on using the extra room as a garden office or a temporary guest cabin, occupants will appreciate the extra privacy. A high-quality garden building will be insulated against temperature changes and noise. Occupants won’t even hear whatever chaos is occurring within the house from inside a garden office.
Building a garden office is generally much less expensive than adding to an existing house. Garden & Rooms offers a wide variety of garden offices, many of which can be financed to fit any budget.
It’s simple to have a detached structure outfitted with everything required to provide power, climate control, and even running water. Access to all the amenities opens up a new world of possibilities for diverse functions. As long as the structure is small enough to avoid the need for planning permissions, the sky is the limit.
Garden studios are all the rage these days. Having a garden room can attract more buyers and drive up the property value. These trends can help homeowners who eventually plan to sell their homes to recoup the initial investment required to install a garden building.
With proper permissions, a garden building can be used as a tiny cabin. It’s easy to convert garden buildings into functional living spaces since they feature plenty of insulation and double glazing. The garden rooms manufactured and installed by Garden & Rooms also come fully wired to accommodate electronics and appliances.
Whether property owners plan to use the garden room as a guest cabin or a garden office, it’s easy to customise these small buildings. They come in a range of sizes and styles to accommodate multiple uses and aesthetic preferences. A well-designed garden building can be repurposed numerous times throughout its life to accommodate a family’s changing needs.
The Cost of Garden Studios vs Home Extension
Every UK family deserves the space to grow and thrive. Not everyone can afford a home extension, which can cost between £1200 to £2000 per square metre. However, installing just one garden room is a cost-effective solution for most families. At Garden & Rooms, our models are in a better price range, start at £12997, and don’t require planning permission.
Factors that Affect Pricing
Every situation is a little different. The cost of both extensions and detached studios varies significantly. The best way to price other options for a studio is to send an email to Rooms & Gardens or toggle navigation on the site until you arrive at the contact page. We have a wide range of products and design options to fit most budgets.
Those who want to minimise cost, whether for an extension, a cabin, or a studio, should first consider the following specifications:
- Size of the garden room
- Style of the house extension
- Availability of utilities
- The number of windows and doors
- Garden studios-garden studios electrics
- Use of products like FSC timber for walls
- The number of separate rooms
- Delivery costs by postcode
- Expected lifespans of building products
- Whether the contractors offer a guarantee

Why Hire a Professional ?
A Garden Building from Garden & Rooms is far more complicated than constructing a simple shed. It requires careful planning and a lot of specialised knowledge. Most homeowners don’t have the tools, training, or time to build garden studios for themselves. Unless they buy a discount brand name shed to supplement a garden studio? It’s much more sensible to entrust a garden room installation to the pros.
The experts at Garden & Rooms have access to name brand materials such as windows with double glazing and cabin grade insulation at low prices. It’s less expensive to hire professional tradies than purchase all the materials and equipment required for construction in many cases.
We also guarantee both product quality and workmanship for 10-years when our customers have their buildings professionally installed. Delivery and installation are available for anyone who lives in close proximity to our postcode.
