One of the nice things about buying a garden room is that you can choose the amount and type of glazing you want for your building. This project by Bridge Garden Rooms is a good example. The bespoke design garden room incorporates two 1.5m (5ft) sets of sliding doors.
While the customer could have also chosen French doors or Bi-fold doors from Bridge Garden Rooms palette of options, they decided that sliding doors worked for their needs. Sliding doors, also known as patio doors, are a great option as you can slide one door back over the other, for easy access into the room. They are also useful if you just want to get a bit of air into the room on a warm day, as you can control the amount you have them open. This is not so easy to control with other door designs.
The 4m x 3m garden room has been designed to slot into a space next to the customers house. It has a custom arrangement of doors and windows, with the two sets of sliding doors positioned towards the corners of the building with a Cedar panelled section in-between. The floor to ceiling glazing will ensure maximum light enters the room and will allow for easy access in and out of the room.
Because Bridge Garden Rooms are manufactured to order, they can work with their customers to hone the size of the building and layout of doors and windows to their specific wants and tastes.
Bridge Garden Rooms are constructed using highly insulated SIP's panels. These panels create an envelope of insulation around the whole building.
The exterior of this garden room has been clad in Western Red Cedar mixed with dark grey doors and roof trims. Bridge Garden Rooms often combine their Cedar cladding with a high-spec composite panel called Alupanel. The Alupanel is colour matched with the door and window frames for a sleek finish.
Inside, Bridge Garden Rooms have a plastered and decorated finish, mixed with commercial grade laminate flooring. The room is well specified electrically, the specification on this project included plentiful power sockets, LED lights in the ceiling and external grade LED lights in the roof soffits. These exterior lights will create a lovely curtain of light down the walls of the building.
