What with work, family and social or charitable commitments, life can feel like one big whirlwind sometimes. This is precisely why it is so vital that we make the effort to slow down from time to time, to step off the conveyor belt and make time for ourselves. And what better way to do so than to set aside a space of your own in the tranquil setting of your garden? With this in mind, here are our top garden room ideas to inspire a spot of calm in your life.
We all know the restorative benefits of meditation and yoga, both of which present benefits for both physical and mental well-being. But it can be difficult sometimes to find a suitable space to be still and quiet the mind without the constant interruptions of everyday life. A garden room however will provide the ultimate tranquil space for you to be at one with yourself. And with the birds singing outside, the breeze rustling through the trees, and the bees buzzing around the flowerbeds, what better place to relax than amongst the calm of nature?
Everyone loves a relaxing bath, but how many of us actually make it past the first five minutes without the doorbell ringing, the phone going or someone demanding your attention? So here’s the idea… install a garden room, design it as a spa, and fit it out with an enticingly bubbling hot tub. Whether you site the tub inside, or use the room as a relaxation zone and place the jacuzzi spa on a covered deck just outside courtesy of a combination room is up to you. Whatever your preference, this really is the ideal way to benefit from peace and quiet, combined with the curative benefits of hydrotherapy. Plus it’s great for a spot of outdoor entertaining year-round too!
A spot of soothing music, a favourite book. Can you feel yourself relaxing already? A summerhouse or garden leisure room is the ideal getaway space for when all you want to do is indulge in what makes you happy. Adorn the room with a comfy recliner chair, some super-soft throws, mood lighting and, if you really want to ramp up your privacy, some heavy drapes to shut the world out. Garden rooms can be fitted out with power, Wi-Fi and lighting, making that connected sound system completely possible. So all you have to do is sneak away, sit back, and relax in your own special space.
For some, simply being creative is relaxing. Whether you paint, draw, write, craft or compose music, a garden room makes the ideal getaway in which to pursue your favourite pastime, and what better situation than in the inspirational setting of your garden? Any garden building can be designed to suit your muse and your artistic preference. Set up an easel, add a writing desk, install a craft table or add your instrument, and there you are, poised to be as creative as you like, in the privacy of your own secluded garden room.
