During the pandemic and lockdowns, many homeowners had garden rooms built on their property to serve as remote workspaces. The idea of having a home office that offered privacy and the ability to remain productive in a particularly stressful situation became popular throughout the UK. More and more remote workers had garden rooms built and saw their productivity levels soar. And, while this is an incredibly effective way to use a garden room, there is more to them than just being a utilitarian workspace.
Garden rooms are very versatile and can be used for a wide range of purposes. They are effective as home offices, but even better as a family entertainment area. While we did see an increase in garden rooms being built and used as offices, there was also a surge of garden rooms being built to serve as a family entertainment area. From game rooms and home theatres, to mum’s relaxing spa space, a reading nook, or an observatory, garden rooms have many practical uses.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some ideas that could have you looking differently at your garden room:
Family Game Night
Studies have shown that families that play board games, complete puzzles and other challenging projects together are often much happier and feel closer. Children are more apt to talk about their feelings, fears, and problems with mum and dad.
Home Theatre Space
Since the pandemic, many families are still reluctant to visit their local theatre. Instead, they are planning family movie nights at home and what better way to enjoy your favourite films than in your very own home theatre? Converting a garden room into a home theatre is easy and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to replicate that theatre experience.
If you or your children play a musical instrument, a garden room can become the perfect practice room or spot for your next jam session. A garden room gives your children a place to practice without disrupting the rest of the house and this will build their confidence, making them better players.
