Design Your Ultimate Garden Retreat


A Summerhouse can be transformed into your very own special retreat. You can turn it into a space where you can sit and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It can also be a fantastic space dedicated to work and hobbies, whether it be your very own sewing room, painting studio, gym or even an office.

With spring now upon us, now is the perfect time to give your summerhouse a makeover in time for the warmer months. We’ve put together some great ideas to help you get inspired.

With the nights drawing longer and the weather (slowly) getting warmer, it’s the season to be spending more time outside. Turn your summerhouse into the perfect spot for al fresco lunches and weeknight feasts. Perhaps have a decked area just outside, like our spacious Morston Summerhouse? Bunting, lights and candles can also dress up any space, making it easy yet effective to quickly throw a blanket but still be in bliss. 

Work from Home

A Garden Room is ideal for those who work from home, so why not create a space that makes you look forward to work every morning? From calming pastel colours and traditional accessories to underfloor heating, the opportunities to make your garden room your own are endless. Perhaps you want to give it a breath of fresh air with a mix of modern furniture and traditional decorations?

Forest Hideaway

Your garden room may already be your private outdoor hideaway, so you can take that theme and run with it. Perfect for nature lovers, you can mix both vibrant colours with contrasting textures to create the woodland feel. Why not make it a retreat for birds as well by incorporating bird feeders? Not only will you be able to admire your garden, you'll also attract local wildlife.

Interior of Garden Room

Turn your summer house into a relaxing retreat by placing a sofa or comfy chairs to lounge on as you look out onto your garden. Sheer curtains are ideal, shielding you from the midday sun and adding that additional sprinkle of subtle light. Add lanterns throughout the summerhouse and just outside to keep the warm glow going, even when the sun has gone down.

Be by The Sea All Year Long

Wish you were by the sea? Turn your summerhouse into an idyllic beach shack. Whether that be with your colours, stylish deck chairs or even with a red and white life ring as decoration, you really can let your imagination run wild. Imagination is definitely the key to creating a focal point in your garden.
