Western red cedar cladding is a popular option on contemporary garden room buildings, but it is a material that if left unprotected will change colour as it ages creating a quite a different look.
This garden room was built by Sanctum Garden Studios about three and a half years ago. The cedar cladding was left untreated and has weathered to an attractive silver grey colour.
The garden room looks rather different to what it did when it was first built, but is no less attractive – we almost prefer the silver grey colour and think the contrast with the dark grey joinery in striking and modern.
If its the reddish brown colour you like, you can seal cedar before it is put onto the building, this needs to be done before it is exposed to the light and ideally each board will be individually treated for best results.
The garden room in the images is a 4.8m x 3m studio from Sanctum’s Contemporary range, as you can see this is a good size room with room for a desk area as well as comfortable seating.
