Enjoying the company of family and friends by dining in the garden is undoubtedly one of the highlights of a summer's day. However, the unpredictable British weather can often hamper the use of outdoor dining areas. Constructing an insulated garden room as a dining space can provide a solution that can be utilised all year round, regardless of the weather conditions. This 4.5m x 3.3m Heritage Garden Studios building exemplifies an outdoor dining room design that is functional in every season.
Heritage Garden Studios’ clients have extended their garden room with an open-sided covered area that will house a hot tub.
We recently wrote about Heritage Garden Studios' different ranges of insulated garden rooms. This example is an example of The Montague range.
Insulated room for all-year-round garden dining
The insulated garden room will be used as a dining room to entertain guests. The insulated, multi-layer build-up of Heritage Garden Studios means they can comfortably do this all year round.
Inside, the dining room has a plastered finish meaning it can be decorated like a room in the house. The room is electrically wired with power points and lighting, all fitted with brushed steel sockets and switches.
On a warm day, the owners will be able to open the insulated room up to create a free-flowing connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. Four-section aluminium, double-glazed bi-fold doors will easily slide to one side.
An Ash Grey, water-resistant laminate flooring has been laid in the dining area and colour-matched with the composite decking used externally to enhance the connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The bi-fold doors have a low threshold, so the interior floor and exterior deck are set at the same height.
Siberian Larch clad garden room
The exterior of the building has been clad in Siberian Larch. As a naturally decay-resistant softwood, Siberian Larch can withstand the elements and last for decades without the need for regular maintenance. Its warm, golden colour and distinctive grain patterns make for an attractive and eye-catching exterior.
The Siberian Larch looks particularly good on the underside of the hot tub canopy area and on a 1m deep canopy that frames the entrance into the garden room. This canopy features recessed downlighting which will wash a curtain of light around the building and extend its use into the evening.
