Are you curious to learn more about garden houses? These modern outbuildings have become incredibly popular as people discover their many advantages. A garden house is a great investment for many reasons and regardless of where you live and how much space you have in your garden or backyard. In addition to that, garden houses are versatile and come with many different possibilities. To convince you that a garden house is the right choice for you, we’ve compiled a list of 10 compelling reasons to make this investment.

1. A Garden House Is Versatile

As mentioned above, garden houses are versatile structures that can be used in many different ways. You might be tempted to think that a garden house is mainly used as a storage space for garden tools and equipment, so you might be surprised to learn that modern wooden cabins can be so much more than just your regular garden shed. Nowadays, garden houses are well-designed and can be used as hobby rooms, garden offices, home gyms, man caves, game rooms, teen dens, granny annexes, and anything you can think of. A garden house is an additional living space that you get to customize and use based on your needs and preferences. You might need space for a home office now, but in the future, you might decide to go back to the office, and you’ll be able to transform your garden house into something else. Garden houses are blank canvases that allow you to rethink and redesign your space whenever you need to.

2. There Are Many Different Types Of Garden Houses

Garden houses have become more and more popular over the last decade so it’s only natural for us to improve and offer a wide range of products to meet our customer’s ever-growing expectations. We offer hundreds of different garden houses to fit any garden or backyard. If you are restricted by your available space or by your budget, you can opt for a mini garden house such as the Noah small garden room, the mini garden office, or the insulated garden pod. If you have a bit more space and your budget is more permissive, we recommend our medium-size garden rooms Ryan, Barbados Plus, and Jacob D. If you are lucky enough to have a large outdoor area and a generous budget, you can opt for our spacious multi-purpose garden houses such as Liam Plus Garden Room with Storage, Holiday Q cabin, or Bristol summer house with shed. As you can see, you can find many different types of garden houses on our website, from tiny ones to huge ones, so it’s up to you to evaluate your budget and your space and to decide which one is perfect for you.

3. Garden Houses Are Nature-Friendly

Made of wood or recycled materials, garden houses are quite nature-friendly. Wood is a natural material that, when impregnated, can withstand extreme weather, and mould, and won’t suffer damage from insects. To ensure that our garden houses stand the test of time, wooden garden houses need to be impregnated beforehand. Our products are made of high-quality Nordic spruce, harvested from sustainable forests, so you can rest assured that you are investing in a durable outbuilding. To ensure that your garden house is protected from moisture, it’s recommended to create a moisture barrier by painting with a glaze or a topcoat. In doing so, you can choose the colour of your garden house and ensure that it matches your outdoor area.

4. You Get To Spend More Time In Nature

A garden house will make your outdoor area more inviting and you’ll be able to spend more time outdoors, even if the weather isn’t ideal. Our garden houses are equipped with verandas that provide shelter from rain and extreme sun. We also equip our cabins and pods with large windows, so you will be able to feel close to nature while being cosy indoors. Insulated garden rooms are as comfortable as your main house and if you equip them with a fireplace stove, you’ll enjoy the mountain cabin vibes during winter. Your garden house can easily become a much-needed retreat where you can spend quality time with your friends and family.

5. A Garden House Can Be A Fun Diy Project

If you have some experience with woodworking and DIY projects, you will surely enjoy building your garden house. We offer a wide range of garden house construction kits with detailed assembly instructions and pre-cut wooden parts. DIY enthusiasts like to refer to our garden houses as ‘LEGO for adults, so if you feel up for the task, all you have to do is choose one of our garden house cabin kits and get to work. If you don’t have a lot of experience or free time to build your garden house, we offer assembly services and we’ll make sure you get to enjoy your cabin in just a few days.

6. A Garden House Can Help You Lead A Healthier Lifestyle

As mentioned in the previous sections, a garden house can easily be transformed into a home gym, yoga studio, meditation room, or home spa. Working out without having to leave your house will be much more convenient and less time-consuming so it is quite likely to integrate more physical activity into your daily schedule. If you use your garden house as a home office, you’ll also be able to lead a healthier lifestyle by eating home-cooked meals, spending your breaks outdoors, and spending less time in traffic. You will also be able to choose your office furniture and fill your office with plants that have proven health benefits.

7. You Will Save Money

Although you will have to spend some money on a garden house, in the long run, this type of building can help you save money in several ways. If you use your garden house as a home office, you will be able to stop wasting money on gas, eating out, and on fancy clothes. If you are a small business owner or a freelancer, working in a nice and comfortable environment will boost your levels of productivity and creativity and it will be easier for you to grow your business. If you plan on buying a garden house that’s equipped with a shed, you’ll be able to keep all of your outdoor furniture, your tools, and equipment in a safe space and you won’t have to replace them as often.

8. A Garden House Will Make Your Garden More Attractive

If you don’t enjoy spending time in your garden or you feel like something is missing, we might be able to help. A garden without a BBQ hut or a garden house with a veranda can feel empty and uninviting. A garden house will make your garden more attractive and it will become the perfect gathering place for your friends and family. You’ll be able to have the most entertaining BBQs, holiday parties, and birthday parties, and you won’t have to spend a lot of money on restaurants and other locations.

9. You Get An Extra Room And More Storage Space

Medium and large garden houses can have more than one room and you will get to enjoy an extra room and plenty of storage space. There are plenty of items that are difficult to store in your main house such as sports equipment, tools, hobby-related things, camping gear, etc. If you invest in a storage shed, you will finally be able to store all of these items in a safe place without worrying that they will suffer damage and without having to move them around the house. The extra room will also be useful in many situations, when your kids want to invite some friends over, when you want to spend some quiet time away from all distractions, when a friend is visiting and decides to spend the night, when someone is trying to learn how to play a very noisy instrument, etc.

10. Privacy

Garden rooms are private spaces where you and your family members can enjoy some quiet time and do something relaxing such as reading a book, meditating, or working on a passion project. Everybody needs some alone time without constantly being reminded of chores and without being interrupted by children and pets. Family life can be loud and a garden home will be an oasis of privacy when you need it.

As you can see, garden houses come with many benefits from helping you save money to making your life easier, healthier, and more enjoyable. A garden house will transform your garden into a cosy and comfortable environment, perfect for relaxing but also for throwing parties and having fun. We offer a wide range of garden houses that can be transformed into anything you need from garden offices, game rooms, hobby rooms, man caves, etc. If you have any questions about our products, do not hesitate to contact us.
