Garden Spaces are showcasing their garden rooms at Grand Designs Live until Sunday 13 May 2018. This morning they have sent through a series of photos of their show building. We are keen to share these with you as their display building cleverly showcases many popular design features.
Inside outside garden room
Garden rooms are popular because of the connection they create with the garden. Garden Spaces can accentuate this connection by creating a defined outdoor seating area. You have got the best of both worlds here, with sections of solid roof and open roof, so you can catch sun or shade. We once featured a Garden Spaces building where the roof canopy had a hole for a tree to grow through.
Colour matched composite decks
The show building has a section of decking at the front. Garden Spaces use composite decking boards which hold their colour and don’t become slippery as they age. We like how Garden Spaces colour matches the decking with the colour of the doors, windows and trims.
Mixing timber claddings with render
Garden Spaces are happy to mix external finishes to create a unique building for you. One popular option, as shown here, is to mix a durable timber cladding such Western Red Cedar with a rendered finish. Here, Garden Spaces have used a dark grey silicone render which colour matches the doors and windows, but you can really make your mark with render as we have seen on these other Garden Spaces projects.
A large expanse of glazing created with sliding doors
Large expanses of glazing are a key feature of contemporary garden room designs. There are many ways to configure an expanse of glazing like this. Garden Spaces have used a sliding door system on the front wall, whereby the doors open in the middle and slide back over the fixed glass panels. This configuration is, in our opinion, a modern alternative to French doors.
Brushed steel sockets
Garden Spaces offer the option of brushed steel socket plates. As you can see from the photo above, they look sharp against the crisp white walls.
Skylights and glimpse windows
A skylight window can be a great addition to a garden room, especially a large one. As you can see from this image, the detailing around the opening is sharply detailed. This photo also shows narrow full-length windows, often called glimpse windows as they can be positioned to frame glimpses of your garden.
Bi-fold doors open up a wall
The photo above also shows a set o bi-fold doors. Bi-folds are probably the most desired feature with garden room buyers. They are usually the most expensive door option, but they do create a great connection between the room and the garden when pushed back.
You can see this building for yourself on stand G155 at Grand Designs Live at Excel London until Sunday 13 May 2018. The Garden Spaces team will also be happy to visit you at home and conduct a free site survey. To arrange one or learn more, speak to the team on 0845 387 9 387 or send them an email.
