An important aspect in the design process of your garden room or office is the furnishings that you choose to include in your relaxing area or workspace.
As we know working from home is becoming ever more popular with more and more people creating an office environment within their home or garden. The more recent trend is having a purpose built garden office to help keep work life and home life separate. However, why can’t the garden office be an extension of your home in terms of comfortability and practicality?
A garden office is the space where you are going to spend most of the day so it is vital that your office provides the right working environment for you to work at your best.
Current design trends for the garden office is the mix and match style of furnishing, combining cosy comfort with functional practicality.
This presents the two sides of the coin: traditional or contemporary style. Choose one or the other or mix and match?
The traditional style provides a soft, classic feel to your workspace with natural materials and a relaxing ambience whereas the contemporary style provides much sharper lines and a modern feel for more practicality. Which one is more suited to your needs?
A type of furnishing that encompasses all of these factors is rattan garden furniture. Comfortable, yet manufactured to endure the worst the english weather can throw at it, is a great choice for both indoor or outdoor use.
