Contemporary style garden rooms are characterised by crisp lines and large expanses of glass.
Contemporary buildings are either flat roofed or have single pitch roofs often covered with modern finishes such as living roofs or EPDM rubber coverings.
Inside / outside space is created with whole walls, full length glazed, folding doors.
Contemporary garden rooms are often finished with Western Red Cedar cladding which can be fixed vertically or horizontally.
Traditional garden rooms have either gable roofs or hipped roofs and have roof coverings such as cedar shingles or clay tiles.
They have conventional casement windows and doors as found in a house and details such as verandas with balustrade.
There are several different profiles of cladding on a traditional style garden room such as shiplap, tongue & groove or tapered weatherboard.
Traditional garden rooms are often painted.
