It’s Monday morning and the commuter stakes are running again. Some days, life reduces you to the existence of a sardine in a tin or a hamster on a wheel, jostled by people who have been practising their elbow moves, deafened and maddened by those pointless cries of “I’m on the train!”
Perhaps you’ve been dreaming of an alternative way to work, but the sheer effort of coping with the daily grind has meant that you haven’t had the time or energy to look at other options. Someone mentioned that the garden room they were using as an office had changed their life completely, but surely that’s just a glorified shed – how could that be viable?
It’s past time that you took a look at the log cabins that we offer at Creative Living Cabins for some garden room ideas. Whichever cabin you choose for your garden room, you’ll find it not only a warm and practical haven, with various glazing and insulation options available, but also a stunning addition to your property. Over a dozen different designs have been created to compliment both modern and traditional types of house architecture.
With your office in the garden, you can still separate your home and work life – so much better than having your office paraphernalia spilling over into relaxation time as it tends to do if you work in a spare bedroom or in the dining room. And you can leave the tins to the sardines and the wheels to the rodents forever.
Other Garden Room Ideas?
Now, this is one of the cleverest garden room ideas that we know. Imagine this: home entertainment centre. Whether your idea of home entertainment is munching popcorn with the family whilst watching the latest dungeons and dragons epic, or a mad game of Twister, or hosting a book club over a glass of Prosecco, a garden room is just the job. Make sure you invest in one that’s big enough, though, because when word gets round, you’ll find more than enough friends, family members and neighbours want to join you.
It has been rumoured, however, that other people have rather more energetic garden room ideas. Yes, they use their log cabin for working out. What were you thinking then? The cabins are more than large enough for some basic gym equipment and offer privacy whilst you work on those pecs and abs. No more exercise bikes cluttering up the hall, no need to keep setting up your equipment when you get home – now that sounds ideal. Stay motivated by simply nipping out to your gym in the garden and start right away.
Maybe you just want some space. Some quiet me-time in surroundings that are decorated in your favourite relaxing colours, along with some squashy cushions, heaps of magazines and a box of chocolate biscuits. And some Earl Grey of course – not forgetting the kettle. The Berkshire Log Cabin, with its double doors and side windows will let you view the garden in comfort from your day bed, letting in excellent light for reading, whilst still making you feel secluded and relaxed. Or you might go for the snug Devon Log Cabin, with a smaller storage area attached, containing gardening tools or bikes – or just some more squishy cushions for when the rest of the family join you?
You may, of course, have garden room ideas in mind that are totally practical. A place to store garden tools, do some potting up, sharpen your secateurs and shears. However, with “Gardener’s Question Time” on the radio and some gardening books to read, plus a kettle and a “Head Gardener” mug, it’s just possible that your garden room will become a second home.
Which garden room idea will you choose?
We hope that some of these suggestions have stimulated you to think about the many, many ways to get the best from a garden room or cabin. There are so many more. We know of families who use them as places for the kids or teenagers to flop out; toy storage and play areas – so much fun for the children, especially if you choose a cabin with the right “fairy-tale” look; games rooms for the pool table and dartboard; studios for painting, or composing and practising music. Designers, artists, home modellers and hobbyists – all have found engaging ways to develop their interests through the indoor-outdoor lifestyle offered by a garden room, and it’s a surprisingly cost-effective option too.
