Multi-use Garden Room with hidden storage.
This build really is a testament to how little disruption a Vivid Green garden room build causes.
A plan as straight as a dart...
As straight as a dart…
To the right-hand side of the main room, we included a narrow storage area. As the garden room was to replace the shed (as many of our projects), it was essential to provide a space to store garden furniture, games and tools. As you’ll also see – the narrow shape of the storage area works perfectly well as somewhere to practice darts!
Originally the storage area would extend to the back of the garden studio, but by limiting it to approx 3/4 of the depth, we had space for a high-level window which brought even more light (highlighted with yellow circle below).
To achieve a light and airy feeling we went for a narrow overhang and two slimmer vertical windows on the left elevation of the garden room. Which made sense, to ensure that the client could see as much of their gorgeous garden as possible!
Slimline aluminium framed bifold doors opened up the whole space – making it a calming place to work or handy extra space for entertaining guests.
External chrome up-and-down lights were added to the exterior with a security sensor, and a single slimline panel heater was added to the interior to ensure comfortable use year-round.
LED spotlights kept the interior minimalist and modern, and dimmer switches enabled the client to create the perfect ambience day or night.
The building was clad in our natural finish sustainable Western Red Cedar (check out our cladding options here).
The client opted for hardwearing laminate indoors and a composite decking outdoors.
We think the angular modern design suits the garden perfectly and the entire setup makes for a perfect space to relax and entertain during the summer months.
