We reported a few weeks ago that Homelodge was launching its new range of garden rooms at Grand Designs Live, and we are pleased to announce that it met with popular approval from the Garden Designs visitors.
As we can see from these photos taken at Grand Designs Live it’s a striking garden room, furnished to show that garden rooms are ‘proper’ rooms not just glorified sheds or summerhouses!

Homelodge are one of the original garden room companies, in fact they are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year and it is exciting to see how they continue to develop their garden room ranges.

With its mono pitch roof the new Homelodge Studio has a contemporary feel and at a starting height of 2.5m is planning permission friendly. In a market full of contemporary cedar clad garden rooms it’s refreshing to see that Homelodge have chosen a painted finish for the Studio range, the subtle pallet will look striking in both a country and urban garden and tone wonderfully with the flora in your garden.
