Are garden rooms worth the money?
Garden rooms can be expensive – but there’s a good reason. A well-built, professionally designed garden room is a fully functioning extension of your home.
The best garden rooms are built with solid foundations, residential-grade materials, wall insulation and fully weatherproof roofing. Unlike conservatories and summerhouses, garden rooms stay warm in winter and cool in summer. They can even be fitted with electrics, plumbing and soundproofing.
At Pegasus, we know that a garden room is a valuable investment that can significantly increase your home’s living space (and value). In this guide, we’ll explain exactly why garden rooms are worth the cost.
How much do outdoor garden rooms cost?
Garden rooms are always going to be more expensive than conservatories and summerhouses. But there’s no set price for a garden room. The cost will depend on several factors, including:
- Where you live in the UK
- Size (small garden rooms are more affordable than larger designs)
- Building materials
- Different finishes (e.g., windows, doors, cladding, roof structure, flooring)
- Optional extras such as plumbing or soundproofing
Of course, each company will charge different rates for designing, installing and decorating your garden room. That’s why it’s important to get a quote before deciding. Typically, garden rooms start from around £8,999, but bespoke and larger designs can cost a lot more.
Be wary of any company offering suspiciously low prices – as always, you get what you pay for. The best garden rooms, such as Pegasus Garden Rooms, are an investment that will last for decades, and add value to your home.
What are garden rooms used for?
Every homeowner has different needs. So, to decide whether a garden room would be worth the money for you, you have to ask yourself what you’ll be using it for.
Because garden rooms are built from high-quality residential materials, they’re much more flexible than conservatories, summerhouses and sheds. You can use your garden room for almost any purpose, exactly as you’d use a spare room inside your home.
For example, you may benefit from a secluded garden office, studio or workshop where you won’t be disturbed by others in your home. A garden room would be ideal for this.
Alternatively, you might be looking for a spare room for guests to stay the night when visiting. Your garden room can be built as a fully functioning annexe, complete with plumbing. (Be aware, though, that this does incur extra costs, and may require planning permission.)
Are garden rooms a good investment?
As you now know, there’s a world of possibility when it comes to garden rooms. Whether you plan to use it as a study, art studio, children’s playroom, bar or guest room, garden rooms are definitely worth the investment.
Here are just some of the many benefits of having a garden room installed:
- You can use a garden room for almost any purpose, and can change what you use the room for over time
- They’re well insulated, allowing for temperature regulation (unlike a conservatory)
- You’ll have a secluded, private space to get away from the house
- A garden room extends the floor space of your home, and is often cheaper than a traditional extension
- Most garden rooms fall under “permitted development”, meaning they don’t need planning permission
Finally, because they’re permanent structures, garden rooms add notable value to a property. If you ever consider selling your home, a garden room will act as a unique selling point.
