As the Covid-19 pandemic has taken hold, millions of us have found ourselves spending increased time at home. Working from the back bedroom, childcare and financial strain has often left us feeling a little burnt out to say the least! Garden rooms can provide a cost-effective retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life indoors – a place to indulge in hobbies, bathe in the sunshine or study away from the family. All of this without straying beyond the boundaries of your own property. Flexilodge is now manufacturing stunning garden rooms with a beautiful range of exterior and interior options providing immediate relief from the stresses of everyday life. Here are just eight ways that a fantastic garden room could enhance your lifestyle:
Take your work outside – With many of us working from home for the first time, it’s likely that your house was not set-up with home-working in mind. Often with extra paperwork and clutter descending into your personal space or constant interruptions from the rest of the family, it can be hard to separate out your family and work life. A garden room can provide a pleasant working environment in which to work uninterrupted, leaving your house free from the stresses of work.
Create a playroom for the kids – As your babies start to grow up, your home can easily become a magnet for toys and clutter. What was once confined to the kids’ bedrooms can soon find itself scattered across your living space. Relaxing after a hard day’s work can be tough with a plethora of toys across the floor. Why not keep the clutter separate by creating a playroom in your garden that your children will just love? Spend play time with your kids in the garden room, keeping just enough toys in their bedroom to keep them occupied at other times of the day.
Admire your garden – Garden rooms can enable us to take full advantage of the peace and tranquillity within our gardens at all times of the year. Take time away from the rest of the family to relax, reflect or read a book whilst enjoying your garden at a comfortable temperature all year round.
Pursue your favourite hobby – Whether you’re into model making, sewing, crafting, pool or darts, a garden room can provide the perfect space for you to indulge in your favourite activity. Keep your clutter separate from the rest of the house and take time out to enjoy your pastime uninhibited by the strains of daily life.
Get fit in your own mini gym – If you want to improve your fitness and reap the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, creating a mini gym in your own back garden can avoid time consuming trips and membership fees at the local fitness centre. With so much affordable home gym equipment available, a garden room could be the perfect place to house your own personal workout zone.
Practice your music – Playing a musical instrument or singing indoors can disturb other members of the family as well as putting you on the wrong side of the neighbours. A garden room with the correct sound insultation can be an ideal spot to practice your musical talents as well as an ideal setting for coming up with some inspirational material.
Entertain your family and friends – Whilst it is not possible under a strict lockdown, garden rooms are a great longer-term investment as a space for entertaining friends or family. They provide a fantastic setting for adults to chat whilst keeping an eye on the kids as they play in the garden or some privacy for older children who want to socialise amongst themselves away from the watchful gaze of their parents.
A spa or hot tub retreat – A garden room can be the ultimate retreat at the bottom of your garden providing a space for relaxing spa therapies. With the correct materials, your little oasis can even include it’s own steam room or indoor hot tub for enjoyment all year round.
