Your choice of doors will have a significant impact on the style and usability of your garden room.
One style of door that balances form and functionality are sliding doors. They create a large section of floor to ceiling glazing, yet are easy to open and can create a great connection with the garden.
Commonly, sliding doors slide from one side of the frame to the other. With the doors stacking together to form the opening.
There is another option that is being used by a few garden room designers: centre opening sliding doors.
These systems are made up of four panels. Two fixed panes at each side and two opening doors which meet in the middle and slide over the fixed windows. They create a wide opening in the centre of the frame as our animation shows:
Crusoe Garden Rooms offer this style of sliding door
These photos are all of the Sanctuary Range. Each one has the centre opening sliding doors. You can see how they create a great connection between the room and the garden.
These garden rooms were completed in just 10-days on-site. They are built using a traditional timber frame with insulation slotted between the framework. This mixed with the double glazing in the doors and windows create a comfortable room for year round use.
The exterior of the room is clad in Cedar which has a long lifespan. As does the EPDM membrane which is used on the roof.
Inside, the room is plastered and decorated. It is fully wired electrically with lights and ample power points. You can read the full specification here.
