SMART® Garden Rooms, Offices & Studios, a leader in modular, fully insulated outdoor buildings based in Suffolk, has recently introduced a new range of garden annexes named Smart Living Spaces. This innovative range comprises seven of their most popular designs, now upgraded to serve as both living and sleeping spaces. Ideal for relatives seeking independent living close to the family home, or as flexible guest accommodation, these spaces are versatile and practical.
Garden Room with Toilet or Shower Room
This archive of articles looks at garden room projects that incorporate a toilet or full shower room. The projects are by a range of different companies. In the majority of cases, the company mentioned will have handled the whole installation including the groundworks to connect the services to the mains supply. But, ask your supplier early on if these connections are included in the price quoted, as some companies will just fit the sanitaryware and expect you to organise the connections separately. This is a significant expense, so you don't want any surprises!
While many garden annexe providers adhere to traditional rectangular designs, occasionally an irregularly shaped annexe with angled walls is necessary to optimally utilise the available space. If you’re in Kent or nearby areas and are considering an annexe for an unusually shaped garden, Ark Design Build are the people to talk to.
Sanctum Garden Studios offer four popular ranges, each providing a wealth of customisation options. In addition to these ranges, they also offer a bespoke design service. This is ideal for those with a unique design in mind or for those wanting to integrate a cloakroom, shower room, or kitchen.
Compared to installing a cloakroom connected to the mains services, incorporating a waterless eco loo into a garden room is a more straightforward and cost-effective solution. These toilets can also be retrofitted into existing garden rooms.
This article will introduce you to popular waterless toilet brands utilised in garden room designs and provide links for further information.
This 30 sqm garden annexe by Ark Design Build is designed for the whole family to enjoy. The pitched roofline creates a wonderfully light and airy interior. The annexe features a well-equipped kitchen and a shower room, which is customised according to the customer’s choice of tiles and fittings.
A Wiltshire family found a unique solution for their parents’ dementia care needs – a garden living annexe designed by Swift Unlimited. This purpose-built, future-proofed dwelling provides independence for their parents and proximity for family support, striking the ideal balance. Serving as a cost-effective, comfortable alternative to traditional care homes.
Navigating their path towards adulthood, teenagers often crave a personal space for socialising, studying, and unwinding. A garden room caters perfectly to these needs, offering a haven close to but distinct from the family home. Choosing a design compliant with Building Regulations enhances its appeal further, enabling it to double as a sleepover spot.
This recent project by Executive Garden Rooms is an excellent example of how a garden room can be designed to create a flexible and functional space that caters to the needs of the whole family. The building sits on a footprint of 7.8m x 4.5m, providing ample space for multiple uses. It features a well-specified shower room and a kitchenette, making it an ideal space for guests.
Ark Design Build has created a high-spec garden annexe designed to be the ultimate party zone. The annexe is located at the end of a Kent garden and is built to Building Regulation standards, meaning it can be used as sleeping accommodation.
Complete with bespoke kitched and well-specified shower room, with the right permissions it could be used as self contained living accommodation in the future.
If you are looking to create a self-contained living annexe or a guest bedroom in your garden, then you should chat with Timeless Garden Rooms, who work closely with each customer to create a space that works for the unique needs of the family.
