Maximising a Small Garden Room

You have a need for an extra room, otherwise we doubt you would be reading this guide, but we are aware that not everyone has a big garden or a big budget to create that extra room. It is therefore important that you make every inch of space count in your garden room.

If your budget is small it can be tempting to opt for a lower specification more sheddish style building, but if you are looking for a room that you can use all year round the specification of the building should be your main concern – what’s the point of having lots of floorspace if its too cold to use in mid winter?

If your garden is small then you’ve got to be canny with how you use your available space, location and size of doors and windows, furniture and storage will be key design elements. In a small garden it’s also important you think about how it looks externally, you don’t want to create a building that overpowers your garden.

Most garden room suppliers offer small garden room designs but there are a few companies that actually specialise in creating workable spaces on a small footprint. These companies have spent considerable time in designing small rooms packed with all the features of their bigger counterparts.

With anything small, budget or garden its a case of being clever with what you’ve got, as you can see there are some great small designs on the market, our advice if your budget or garden is small is that you are better to compromise on floor space than features, you will be better off in the long run in a small fully insulated, electrically wired garden room than in a bigger lower specification building.

Some of the most cleverly designed garden rooms come on small footprints.
