Opting for a garden room is an exciting, yet life changing decision. With such a vast choice of prices, styles and sizes to choose from – selecting the perfect space for you, your family and your home can seem a little daunting at first.
The team of experts at Henley Offices have selected a few vital points for you to bear in mind, when looking for that garden office or room you’ve always dreamt of.
You’ve been looking at garden offices or garden rooms – a space situated away from the home, allowing you to work, relax or simply be creative in style and comfort and, most importantly, in peace.
First, you need to identify the size of room you desire. Perhaps you need a medium sized office for one? Or maybe a larger and more spacious floor plan, for multiple people and room for mobility? In that case, it is important to establish a clear vision of where you want your garden room to be situated and the rough size you are looking for.
An idea in your head regarding the dimensions of your new building before you start browsing models and designs, will help you understand the type of room you will need, the price range of models available and even whether planning permission or building regulations will be required.
The Henley team will always advise and work closely with you when obtaining planning permission.
You may find that modular sizes and designs available, simply don’t cater for your particular needs or requirements. This isn’t a problem – it offers you with more scope and flexibility, as most garden room suppliers offer a ‘bespoke’ service that will interpret your ideas into the best building for you.
Whether you want the shape of your new room to slot in effortlessly into your garden, or a simple change, such as the door being located differently to the building designs on offer, creating an ideal room that is so uniquely yours has become widely available in today’s industry.
Henley’s experience in providing garden offices, rooms and studios to fit your life and space, makes Henley a leading supplier of bespoke built garden rooms.
Once you know the size and rough dimensions you’re looking for, your focus can be firmly on selecting a model that meets your every requirement.
A long-lasting and sustainable garden office should always start from good foundations – so make sure you take the time to professionally lay groundworks that will support your building for years to come, no matter the weather.
Furthermore, a garden office, room or studio needs to be durable and easily preserved. For example, the better the quality of roofing and cladding – the longer your garden room will last and maintain its value.
It’s factors such as these that are so important, yet often overlooked – make sure you’re one step ahead and understand what makes a good quality office or studio. And remember, they act as a great investment for your property.
You’ve chosen a size and picked a style – so what’s next?
Equally important when determining which garden office is right for you are the interior and insulation options. A place of comfort throughout the year, the right building makes home working or relaxing, that little bit more satisfying when nestled away from the home.
That’s why it’s paramount that the most effective insulation options are available to you, when selecting your office – otherwise your office will be unusable as soon as the days draw in and the temperature drops.
