Summer may still be a long way off but you don’t need sun and warm weather to properly enjoy your garden.
More and more people are turning to garden rooms, garden offices and other contemporary garden buildings because of their multitude of functional and leisure purposes.
Rarely needing planning permission, some of the benefits of garden buildings include extra storage space, increased value to your home and a place to get away from daily life.
They can also be used as an office, workshop or other workplace like a salon.
“Garden buildings offer a whole new and exciting dimension to your home because they extend lifestyle and business space,” said Shaun Thompson, who is marketing manager at Johnsons Garden Buildings.
“They can add thousands of pounds to the value of a property and it is no surprise that business has been booming in our industry.”
With winter in full swing and the chance of another scorching summer ahead, heating and cooling throughout the year is a must when you’re in a garden building.
“We offer either 2.5kw or 3.5kw climate control units depending on the size of the cabin,” added Shaun.
If you work freelance or from home, then having your own dedicated work space is necessary to keep you in the right frame of mind.
A garden office or workshop allows you to work from the comfort of your own work space without leaving the boundaries of your home as well as helping to save on money that you would otherwise spend on rent or commuting.
It also ensures your home doesn’t run the risk of cluttering up from any possible paperwork or tools of the trade.
Or what about a retreat in your very own relaxing summerhouse.
Summerhouses - that can come fitted with proper insulation and double-glazing - can also be fitted with electrics.
That means that even if in winter, you can enjoy your home from home all year round.
A garden building can provide the best bar area and can be opened up during those hot summer months and closed off in the winter to enjoy a hot cuppa.
Or what about simply adding living space to your home?
Garden buildings can be transformed into an expansion of your home such as gaining a spare room or a utility room.
Those looking to set up a studio or salon can also benefit from garden rooms due to their flexible design options.
Garden buildings can also be designed to be child-friendly and these solutions are proving more and more appealing to parents struggling with storage.
Or what about the idea of your very own gym or spa? A garden home can be the best place to store all of your exercise gear or to have your therapy room.
Johnsons Garden Buildings is on hand to once again help customers with their wants and needs from a garden building and can arrange a non-obligatory free home-site survey that can be carried out at a mutually convenient time.
Providing what they describe as a ‘hassle-free service’, full construction is included on all packages purchased through Johnsons Garden Buildings.
Most buildings from Johnsons Garden Buildings can also be built in as little as one or two days.
