Guest Post from eDEN Garden Rooms talking about how to maximise space with a small garden room
In our opinion the conservatory has had its day, the garden room / studio is the future in terms of adding an extra room to your house as in.it.studios explain:
For years now the conservatory has been a favourite with the British folk. It is recognised to be an affordable and desirable solution to acquire extra living space for your home, whilst simultaneously bringing the warmth of the outdoors in.
Through market research, previous experience and liaising with conservatory owners, here are some of the recurring problems that have been associated with them:
- During spring and summer months they tend to overheat and are too warm to enjoy, particularly south-facing ones.
- They are expensive to heat in the colder months. particularly north-facing.
- The inability to watch TV or use your PC during the daytime due to brightness and glare.
- With the roofs being pitched, blinds are often hard to access, with motorised ones working out expensive.
- They often look outdated as more and more people are drifting away from traditional living spaces, and wanting modern and contemporary rooms.
We at in.it.studios believe our garden studios can give you a sustainable, contemporary and affordable solution to all of these problems, so you can enjoy your new living space the way you should…hassle and worry free. We believe that conservatories are soon to be replaced by the ever growing contemporary garden rooms market with more and more people choosing to invest in them.
And here are the main reasons why they are beginning to out-favour their conservatory counterparts:
- Depending on spec they are approximately the same price as a conservatory.
- They are eye-catching, modern and contemporary fitting in with today’s trends and demands.
- Built with sustainability and eco-living at the forefront of their design.
- They can relocate with you.
- Our studios come with insulated panels, floors and ceilings, just as would expect with a brick-built extension – ensuring comfortable living temperatures all year round. (u-values)
- Little roof maintenance, especially with our popular Green Sedum Roofing.
- Large bi-folding doors allow a whole elevation of the studio to open, allowing the internal and external spaces to mix.
- They have no problems with computer monitors or TV’s just like a living room or office should be.
- Extended decking to enjoy the weather.
Garden studios can be used for almost any purpose, even as multi purpose rooms.

Guest Blog from in.it.studios about one of their latest garden room projects:
In.It studios, one of the most innovative creators of garden rooms, have built a brand new Garden room for the St. Oswald’s hospice in Newcastle.
The brand new garden building has been built as an extension to the hospice. The room will be used as a Rehabilitation centre away from the hustle and bustle of the hospice. The studio space allows for a peaceful and tranquil feeling for its residents, allowing patients to have a place to feel calmer. The room forms part of a huge renovation undertaken at the hospice.

The garden room is now a predominant feature of the hospice with it being clearly visible from the entrance of the building. The room measures 5.9m deep x 7.6m wide, with its cedar clad and timber construction turning it into a very striking looking building whilst inside still keeping the calm and peaceful feel on the inside for patients.
The new construction again showcases how versatile and modern garden rooms are. Whether it’s an extension to a building or a standalone structure, Garden Rooms are perfect for adding extra work space or extra living space for an affordable price. They also add a modern touch which the St. Oswald’s Hospice build beautifully showcases.
The project, commissioned by the hospice, is receiving praise all over. The building’s Architects, from In.It studios were shortlisted as nominees for the National Healthcare awards. In regular In.it studio fashion, the build was finished quickly and without any problems. The building was built in three weeks, two weeks ahead of their proposed schedule.
The build was taken on by outside contractors T Manners & Sons who worked in conjunction with In.It studios. The building was planned as a prefabricated construction, allowing In.It studios to maintain the quality all around from floor to roof. Many garden rooms are built like this, allowing the construction to be done off site in a place where the quality can really be monitored and kept all round.
Garden rooms are growing in popularity all over and it seems now many businesses are seeing them as a great and affordable way to increase their space without causing too much of a disturbance during the construction.
The new room at St. Oswald’s Hospice is a great sign of how economic times will most probably see an increase in the amount of buildings like this. Building big extensions onto commercial buildings or public buildings may no longer be as feasible as it once was. The same can be said for people adding extensions to their houses, a garden room is much cheaper than any form of conservatory or extension, people need to see that garden rooms can provide a homely feeling place in their back garden for a much cheaper price in terms of money and overall hassle of construction.

Atelier share some ideas on how a garden room can enhance your summer!
With summer finally upon us, garden rooms are being utilised for relaxation and entertainment in gardens everywhere. So for those homeowners still considering whether or not to purchase a garden room, Atelier highlights five ways to enjoy garden rooms in the summer…
With the summer holidays just around the corner, garden rooms can be used to keep the kids active during their summer break. Garden rooms are great for keeping kids out of the house, away from the television or games console, and occupied in the fresh air. Atelier’s garden rooms come with folding sliding doors that can be opened fully to allow children to use garden rooms as a ‘den’ for all their fun-filled activities.
Garden rooms are perfect for unwinding at the bottom of the garden. As fully working living areas, Atelier’s garden rooms can be used as a ‘home from home’ on days when you want to get away from it all but actually don’t want to travel. From morning until night garden rooms can act as tranquil spots to relax and leave worries behind.
From simply being a perfect place to relax, garden rooms can be utilised even further as spa rooms, saunas and steam rooms. With connection to both electricity and water mains, and a highly complementary timber frame, garden rooms can easily be adapted to take relaxation that one step further.
Atelier’s garden rooms are highly durable, and with a timber lifespan of up to 60 years they can provide a lifetime of exercise if utilised as a gym. What better way can there be to enjoy the comforts of a home gym, than in garden rooms designed by Atelier?
Garden rooms can act as the vibrant centre for entertaining friends during warm summer nights. Atelier’s garden rooms can be equipped with a full working kitchen if required, meaning that guests will never be without food when out in the garden. Similarly, with our garden rooms being fully linked to the electricity mains, they make a great place to cool drinks in the fridge or plug in musical entertainment. One word of warning though: don’t forget to invite the neighbours. They won’t want to miss out on the fabulous hospitality!
Inspired? Take a look at the Atelier website for more information about these unique garden rooms.
A garden studio is the perfect place to live while you are building your own home. They are well insulated with underfloor heating, can be fitted with a kitchen and bathroom and can be converted into a garden office, gym, sauna, den or play room once your home has finished being built.
Building your own home can be a stressful time so it is important that you feel as comfortable as possible when you’re not working on the project. A garden studio can be an ideal replacement to living in a caravan. A garden studio allows you to be on site to oversee the build and can be just like living at home.
A garden studio can make huge long term cost savings for your project and home. It is a long term structure which can be used for lots of different purposes once you no longer live in it. An Atelier garden studio is available in different sizes which can accommodate all families.
