With house prices on the rise and the costs of extensions soaring, a new contender has entered the marketplace offering a serious alternative to solve the 'squeeze' in your home - the garden room. It utilises existing garden space offering you more accommodation but without the hefty price tag.

The garden room comes in many forms and there is a lot to think about when choosing the perfect one for you.

Here are some practical tips to help:

  • Think about the use of your new room and how it can enhance your current living arrangements. By giving it lots of thought you can make the room multi-functional as it could not only offer you much needed extra living space with amenities but also has the potential for a luxurious new BBQ area or the hot tub you have always wanted on the deck.
  • Choose the right size and shape of room. For example, one with straight walls as opposed to a curved shaped room is more practical for everyday use and the right size is important to make sure the room meets your needs.
  • The right position in the garden can make a beautiful new room spectacular so think about the light and sun in your garden and maximising it in your design choice.
  • Make sure you pick a supplier with the highest quality product as that can make the all the difference to your comfort in the summer and winter months - there is no point having a room you can't use all year round. It is an investment that will enhance the value of your home so the quality of it is important.
