It is no secret that over the past year, everyone was forced to spend more time at home. At first, we were scared and worried about the current situation, but then we had to learn how to enjoy what we have. More specifically, we had to find ways to make the most of being home all day and having more time on our hands. Some of us switched to working from home, while others decided to dedicate more time to hobbies, learning new skills, spending time with family and close friends, adopting a pet, or even starting a new business. But in doing so, we were all confronted with the same issue – the lack of space. The good news is there’s a great solution to this common problem – getting a garden pod.
Garden pods are versatile structures made of natural materials that offer a much-needed solution to a problem that’s very common nowadays. We are referring, of course, to the lack of space. Garden pods have many advantages and pretty much zero disadvantages. They are eco-friendly, durable, can be used year-round, are customizable, and affordable. And did we mention that they have a lot of different uses? Read on to find out what you can do with a garden pod.
Garden Office Pod
Working from home can be fun at first. There are many perks to being at home all day including not having to wake up as early, not wasting time in traffic, being able to cook and eat what you want, doing chores during your work breaks, and so on. But if you’re working from home, you already know that after a while, being surrounded by distractions can prevent you from being productive. Not having a dedicated space to keep your work-related stuff can make the house messy, while working with your children and pets in the house can be impossible.
For most of us, a messy workspace means 0 work done, so the best option is to invest in a garden office pod. Our massive-wood cabins come in all shapes and sizes and they make perfect home offices. By working from a garden pod, you get to have a quiet, private space where you can focus on your tasks and take important calls while also being a few steps away from your home. As we like to say – garden office pods have many advantages and no disadvantages.
When it comes to garden office pods, our clients prefer our 6×4 sheds, such as our Summer House with Veranda Franz, Summer House with Veranda Henry, Garden Room Barcelona, and Garden Log Cabin Eamon. 6×4 sheds are a perfect size. They are not too large and not too small, so you will have plenty of space, but you won’t fill your whole garden with it. Furthermore, you will get the office space that you need and a little extra at a very affordable price.
Garden Bar/Man Cave
If you don’t need a home office, consider yourself lucky. You can use your garden pod in other fun and creative ways. For instance, because they were unable to go out with friends as much, some of our clients decided to use their garden pods as garden bars, man caves, or game rooms. If you used to go out for drinks every weekend and you miss this relaxing activity, you’ll be happy to learn that our stand-alone massive-wood cabins can easily be turned into wonderful hangout places.
A man cave comes with many advantages: it is affordable, you can listen to music, watch a football game, or watch a movie without interfering with the other members of your family, and you get to spend more time with your friends in a safe and fun environment. And, if you’re worried that someday you might not need a man cave or a garden bar, don’t worry. Our versatile garden pods can easily be modified and repurposed.
When it comes to leisure spaces, our clients usually choose our Large Garden Room D, because it is spacious, it has double-glazed windows, 70mm walls, and like all of our wooden garden rooms, can be equipped with insulation and used year-round. Other popular products include our Garden Snooker Room B and Contemporary Garden Cabin with Veranda Lucas E.
A hobby room is another great use for a garden pod. Whether you love painting, sculpting, photography, knitting, or woodworking, you probably need a lot of tools, equipment, and materials. Wouldn’t it be great if you had plenty of storage space and you wouldn’t have to mix your hobby stuff with your other things? We will answer this for you, it would be great. Not to mention that you’d have a quiet place to focus on your craft without being distracted by the TV, by your kids, your kids’ friends, your pets, your pet’s friends, and so on and so forth.
Garden pods make perfect hobby rooms because they are surrounded by nature, you get to decorate them as you wish, they have great lighting, and you can choose the one that fits your needs best. For instance, if your hobby requires plenty of light, you can choose a garden pod that has large windows, such as our Large Garden Hobby Room Barbados or Garden Room Liam. Keep in mind that all of our garden pods can be equipped with insulation and heating. This will make them cozy and warm during the winter and you’ll be able to use them year-round without worries.
