Making The Most Of Your Garden Space


Having a well-thought out garden can be detrimental to selling a house, impressing visitors, and most importantly enjoying your outside space - but how can you ensure you are really making the most out of your garden? 

We all need somewhere to relax and enjoy the efforts of our toils in the garden, whatever the season. Gardens would benefit from a feature that offers this and more. We've listed a few different types of garden buildings that we believe would enable you to truly make the most of your garden:

Summerhouses/Garden Chalets

Summerhouses and Garden Chalets can complement any garden. The octagonal or hexagonal summerhouse shapes can tuck neatly into a corner of even the smallest gardens and will provide you with a retreat from which to admire your garden in solitude or with friends, as well as adding another dimension to the space. Choose a colour to co-ordinate and that extra living space becomes the focal point of your garden and the envy of all your friends.

Go for plenty of windows and glazed doors to allow the light in and to make sure your summerhouse or chalet is light and airy. 

Ensuring that you buy a good quality building will mean that not only will it look impressive, but will function well also, allowing the building to be used in the very short British summer, but also in the spring, autumn and, weather-permitting, sometimes even the winter allowing you to enjoy your garden all year round.

Offices and Studios

Usable living space in your garden is achieved according to your requirements. If you work or study at home or indeed have a hobby that requires that extra space, a separate building in your garden can be the answer and an excuse to escape from the house into the garden!  An Office or Studio garden building can look stunning, relieve any stresses surrounding lack of space, and the garden undoubtedly provides a more inspiring, quiet and relaxing environment in which to work, study or pursue your hobby.

Ensure your office is lined and insulated for year-round use and a higher quality finish. Lots of light flooding in will keep you inspired and make for more pleasant working conditions.

Workshops and Sheds

It is both impressive and appealing the picture of a person beavering away at the "end" of a garden, making or mending or just endeavouring. High quality and well positioned workshops and sheds provide a focal point and charm.

Your good old garden shed is an essential storage facility, but with the right colour choice, correct positioning and the necessary high-quality construction and finish you can introduce it as your point of interest and the finishing touch to your garden and outside area.

Turn your shed from a plain storage facility by increasing the size to your needs and adding a workbench and some shelving, giving you some space outside of your house to potter or work. Adding lots of windows down one side of your building and a sturdy workbench would give you a version of the classic "potting shed."

Garages

Adding value to your property can be done with a timber garage installed in your outside space and would most certainly be making the most of your garden.

You can combine the obvious practicality of a garage that offers storage space with an additional workshop feature, such as a workbench simply by adding a partition to organise the space. Installing a garage that's built to the highest standard will add value, give interest and provide the finishing touch to your property.
