Adding a Garden Room to Your Home

fixed-panels-3 (1)How often do you use your outdoor space? Many of Britain’s back gardens are barely utilised at all, but even if yours sees plenty of activity in the warmer months, you probably aren’t going out there much right now. After all, it’s December – the great outdoors is a frigid, unappealing prospect right now, and that’s when it isn’t raining.

However, there is a way to realise your garden’s full potential, even in the colder months: SunSpaces garden rooms. These stylish, contemporary structures are easy to build, and adding one to your property will really help you to get more from your outdoor space the whole year around.


A garden room is a lot like a conservatory – it’s a glass room that’s usually installed onto the rear of the home, thus bridging the gap between one’s indoor and outdoor spaces. However, there are a number of key differences between a SunSpace and a standard conservatory:

  • More cost-effective
  • DIY installation
  • No planning permission required (in most cases)
  • No foundation required (in most cases)

Garden rooms can be used in all kinds of different ways; yours could serve as a picturesque dining area, a second living room, a playroom for the children, or even a peaceful, outdoorsy workspace if you’re lucky enough to work from home.


Garden rooms such as those available from SunSpaces have become very popular in recent years, with countless suppliers offering affordable DIY solutions for the homeowner who wants to expand their living space and make the most of their garden. However, while many of these suppliers provide a limited range of standard, ‘off-the-shelf’ solutions, SunSpaces offer a bespoke design service that allows you to specify every detail of your garden room, from its size and shape to its colour and the type of doors used.

So if you want a classic white garden room with sliding glass doors and a ‘U’ shape that wraps around the rear of your house, that’s no problem. Equally, if you’d prefer a contemporary, open-walled veranda, or a small green structure with fixed panels and frosted privacy glass to stop people seeing inside, SunSpaces can provide these too. Your structure doesn’t even has to be attached to your property – detached verandas and garden rooms are another of SunSpaces’ specialities, and this approach could be ideal if you want to create a secluded space that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of home life.
