Incorporating a storage area into a garden room has become very popular, in fact, we have featured dozens of examples. One thing all these examples have in common is that they are all square or rectangular in shape. The thing is, inserting a square or rectangle building is not always the best use of the space available.
If you choose to work with a company like Garden Spaces who offer a bespoke design service, a uniquely shaped building can be created to maximise the space you have available.
Triangular design slots into the corner of the garden
The Garden Spaces team were commissioned to design and build a garden room with storage area in the corner of a Welwyn Garden City garden.
A square or rectangular building would leave 'dead space' around the circumference of the building. So, the Garden Spaces designers created a triangular shaped building which follows the lines on the boundary fence.
The building is a sizeable 6.9m by 6.1m and makes maximum use of the corner of the garden. The building has been divided into two rooms. A high-spec main room with plastered and decorated interior and a practical 3.6sqm stoarge room.
Double doors lead to secret storage
Look closely at the front of the garden room and you will see a set of double doors leading into the storage room.
The Garden Spaces team have detailed them so well, they are virtually invisible when closed. They have used the same Thermowood cladding on the front of the doors as on the wall. Carefully matching the boards so you can barely see the joints.
The doors have been fitted with locks and bolts to keep the contents of the room secure.
The floor of the storage area has been finished flush with the deck boards on the veranda. Removing a threshold here means that bikes and lawn mowers can easily be manoeuvred into the room.
While the main room has a fully plastered and decorative interior, the storage area has a durable OSB finish.
The Garden Spaces team can incorporate lighting and power sockets in the storage area, customising it to your needs.
