Chatting with a garden room buyer the other day, he asked us to recommend some pretty garden rooms. Digging deeper into what he was looking for, we found he was seeking examples of designs with more traditional detailing, a painted finish and a pitched roof.
In the sea, of contemporary garden room designs, that dominate the garden room industry, it can be challenging to identify designs with more of a traditional charm. Fear not, we have found them for you:
Suffolk Barn by SMART Garden Rooms, Offices & Studios
The Suffolk Barn range by SMART Garden Rooms, Offices & Studios is a lovely garden room range. The modular range comes in 60+ sizes from a compact 2.1m x 2.1m upwards. You get to choose the configuration of the doors and windows. Available in 15 different colours, it has a lot of character. Options include different roof pitches, a porthole window in the gable end and a lovely covered veranda area.

Timeless Garden Rooms
Timeless Garden Rooms have creating pretty garden rooms down to a fine art. There pitched roof designs feature many traditional details such as decorative barge boards and turned finials. We like the lead flashing detailing they use under the windows and the Cedar shingle roof coverings. Timeless Garden Rooms offer a bespoke design service.

Studio Range by Warwick Buildings
Warwick Buildings offer several styles of garden room building. We think the prettiest is their Studio Range with its pitched roof and wall of doors and windows. You get to choose your perfect size, configuration and the finishes. Personally, we love this painted example with the Cedar shingle roof.

Garden Affairs offer a quality log cabin range, designed for year-round use. They offer some lovely Permitted Development friendly 2.5m high designs, but their taller, pitched roof designs are really pretty. You can work with the Garden Affairs team to customise the layout and finishes. For instance, you might want to add a covered veranda, which as you can see, adds a lot of character.

The Garden Room by Crane Garden Buildings
The Garden Room by Crane Garden Buildings has a lovely hipped roofline; this creates a beautiful vaulted ceiling inside the room.
