One of the nicest features of many a garden room is how naturally light the interior space is. This is because a garden room often has more glazing than a room in a house.
It has become fashionable to incorporate lots of glass into a garden room. The trend is to use floor to ceiling windows mixed with fully glazed doors. Positioning glazing on different walls can ensure the capture of the best quality light as the sun moves throughout the day.
Don't forget the roof
This 4m x 2.5m garden room built in Horsham by Garden Room Living is wonderfully light. The French doors on the front wall and the long window on the left side wall play a key part in creating a bright room. But, it is the addition of a roof window that really enhances the feeling of natural light.
Adding a roof window like this is a clever design trick and one to consider if you are limited in positioning windows on side walls. Top level natural light, like this, is excellent for working.
White walls bounce the light around
Garden Room Living offer a plastered and decorated finish on their buildings. In this case, the walls and ceiling have been painted in white. As we can see from these photos which were taken before the second fix of the electrical sockets, the light bounces around the room.
Larch cladding offers a contemporary look
The exterior of the garden room has been clad in Siberian Larch. We are seeing larch being used in more and more on garden rooms. It is a popular alternative to Western Red Cedar offering similar longterm durability to rot and fungal attack. While often being a more cost-effective choice than Cedar.
Garden Room Living offer a few standard garden room designs and a bespoke design service.
