In many cases, the garden rooms we feature are wider than they are deep. It has become popular to maximise the width of your garden to get the biggest room possible. The thing is, many gardens are not that wide, rather they are long and narrow.
Luckily, with a long and narrow garden, you are not limited to a small room. This project by Contemporary Garden Rooms proves the point perfectly. The garden room is just 3 meters wide. It has been positioned tight to one fence leaving a path along the other side for access to the back of the garden. The room then extends 4.7 meters backwards, creating a substantial sized room.
To build tight to the boundary, as in this case, the building could be no taller than 2.5 meters to comply with Permitted Development.
Ensuring a long garden room is naturally light
Typically when building in a long, narrow garden, you are limited to positioning the glazing on just the front wall. Potentially this could make the far end of the room dark. Contemporary Garden Rooms overcame this issue by installing a 1m x 1m fixed skylight in the roof. This is not only a great feature but will ensure the whole room has good natural light.
This building is a version of Contemporary Garden Rooms Alcove Range. The aluminium bi-fold doors finished in RAL 7043 are recessed into the front wall. Creating a porch area that is detailed in Cedar cladding. The bi-fold doors will fold back into this alcove, so they won’t encroach on the garden when open.
A small deck area has been created in front of the garden room, that leads on to a newly landscaped garden.
This project proves you can create a big garden room in a long and narrow garden. To learn more talk to the Contemporary Garden Rooms team on 01952 825 630 or send them an email. Explore their website to see more of Contemporary Garden Rooms work.
