The key benefits of installing a garden room
Considering installing a garden room? Whether you need extra space for work or play, here are some of the benefits you stand to gain.
Garden rooms have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for very good reasons. As a homeowner, one of the most valuable home improvements you can make is creating more living space but that’s not always a viable option financially or physically.
Adding an extension or conservatory to your home is an expensive and time-consuming process, and one that would require planning permission. However, these problems are eliminated when you opt for a garden room instead, offering a similar result for much less hassle.
If you have the garden space available, we’re here to tell you why investing in a garden room could just transform your home and your life.
1. They provide extra living space
Most of us can admit that we’d like our homes to be that little bit bigger, to have that extra space to relax or entertain in. The beauty of a garden room is that you can create this additional space, and use it however you like.
Garden rooms can be used as a home office, an entertainment room, a garden gym or even a guest bedroom. The flexibility of garden rooms is one of the main reasons that draw people towards them. You’re able to create a designated area for whatever purpose you need, designed exactly how you want it.
They’re perfect for helping to free the main home of clutter. Many of our clients here at Pegasus Garden Rooms have opted to move their laundry rooms and office desks into their garden, so that they can keep out of sight the things that they’d maybe rather not see at the weekend!
What’s more, they’re a completely blank canvas and can easily be transformed into something entirely different. No longer require a garden office? Ditch the desk for a sofa and TV, and you’ve got yourself a garden cinema room.
2. Privacy when you need it the most
As garden rooms are completely separate from the main home, they allow you to create that private space that you’ve probably been longing for, particularly if you live in a busy household.
This makes them a great option for a home office or study area, where you can quietly concentrate without being disturbed. Similarly, if any family member wishes to have guests around, there’s a dedicated area ready and waiting for them. This is perfect for parents looking to entertain without disturbing their sleeping children, and for children to play in a safe space with friends without being told to keep the noise down!
3. They’re a cost-effective home improvement
As mentioned earlier, traditional home extensions can often be a substantial investment that not everyone has the means to afford. However, garden rooms are available for just a fraction of the price, making them a far more affordable option.
Garden rooms are available in a vast range of sizes and designs, so you can opt for one that’s as big or as small as you need to accommodate your purpose, meaning it can be completely tailored to your budget.
Here at Pegasus Garden Rooms, our builds start at just £8,999 for our CUBE design, which fits comfortably into any size garden. On the other hand, our bespoke garden rooms service allows you to design your outbuilding from the ground up which is perfect for having complete control over the finishing touches.
4. They increase the property value of your home
Having a garden room can substantially increase the value of your home, often as much as 5-7% of your valued price. Naturally, it’s extra living space which all counts towards the value your home is priced at when you’re looking to place it on the market.
This stands no matter what your garden room is currently designed to be used for, as their flexibility means that potential buyers can easily make it their own.
Not only does this work in your favour financially, but due to the rapid increase in the number of people working from home, buyers are looking for houses that can facilitate their workspace needs. If you’re in a position where you have a garden room which is ready-made to do this, you’re one step ahead in appealing to more buyers.
5. Installation is quick and mess-free
We all know the feeling that when you want something, you want it now. Whilst garden rooms can’t quite be erected overnight, the entire process from design to installation can take just a matter of weeks depending on the design and size you’ve chosen.
When comparing this to the likes of conservatories and extensions which can take months to complete, the timeframe is much shorter meaning you can get to enjoying your new living space even sooner.
Here at Pegasus Garden Rooms, we pride ourselves on our fast and efficient, mess-free installation. We’re committed to keeping your garden in pristine condition and causing minimal disruption throughout the process.
6. They can be used all year round
Contrary to common belief, garden rooms can be used all year round. Unlike summer houses, garden rooms can be fully insulated in the walls, floor and ceiling to keep them warm in the winter months and cool in the summer.
You can even add optional extras such as underfloor heating and fully installed radiators to keep it cosy all year round. Here at Pegasus Garden Rooms, our high-quality electrical installations can cater to your needs; whether that’s air conditioning, heating or bespoke lighting – we can set you up with whatever your heart desires.
7. Designed completely bespoke to your requirements
The vast and varied range of garden room design options is what truly sets them apart from the standard home extension, conservatory or summerhouse. Garden rooms can be entirely customised to suit your taste and complement your home decor.
The exterior cladding chosen for your garden room is undoubtedly what makes the biggest impact. Fortunately, this is available in a wide variety of colours to suit everyone’s preferences. Whether you opt for grey to match your existing fences, black to make a statement or natural oak wood to lighten up your outdoor space – the choice is yours.
Choose from a selection of high-quality windows and doors, powder coated in any colour with your own choice of handle colour. We can offer a selection of premium bi-fold doors, sliding doors, double-glazed windows and panoramic window panels to suit your needs.
Spruce it up with added finishing touches such as exterior lighting, wooden or composite decking, a fully bespoke roof or even an adjoining outdoor relaxation area as we did on this project in Wythenshawe.
Here at Pegasus, we’ll go the extra mile to create your dream garden, whatever that may entail. We’ve previously installed a black Indian stone patio area and artificial grass for a client in Denton, and a stunning outdoor kitchen/dining area for this client in Worsley.
No job is too big or small for us and we’re happy to try and accommodate any requests outside of the main garden room build. If you have an idea in mind, don’t hesitate to ask and we’ll see what we can do!
We pride ourselves on being able to transform anyone’s garden, no matter how big, small or awkwardly shaped it may be.
