Creating Your Garden Gaming Room: How We Bring Your Ideas to Life

Having a special space for entertainment and escapism should be high on your list of home improvement projects if it’s not already. Instead of converting a spare bedroom into a games room, you can instead make use of your garden space. There are a host of benefits behind converting previously unused empty outdoor space into a bespoke and stunningly designed garden gaming room. Entertain guests out in your garden all year round or enjoy your favourite games in privacy while not disturbing the rest of the family. Dedicate your garden room to your pastimes, whether they’re enjoying a movie, playing video games, potting balls at the pool table or getting competitive with a round of darts.

At Miniature Manors, we treat each of our garden rooms as unique pieces, designed bespoke to the client’s needs and expectations. That’s why we put so much focus on getting to know the client – you. Our process for designing, building and decorating garden gaming rooms brings your ideas from dizzy daydreams to a fantastic garden games room where you can build new, happy memories with your friends and family.

Step 1: First Contact

First Contact

Our journey begins with the initial inquiry. All our garden rooms are priced bespoke to your design so we start with an estimate for the cost of your garden games room. It helps us to give an accurate estimate if you can provide us with as much detail as possible about your plans. We have an online project planner to help inspire ideas and send us the information we need to give you an idea of costs.

We’ll be in touch within 48 hours to find out any more details including any extra features you would like in your garden gaming room. We’ll then give you a cost to help accommodate your budget.

Step 2: Site Visit

Garden Room with Indoor BBQ

We arrange to meet you at your home to survey the space available in your garden as well as talk more about your ideal garden gaming room. A member of our team will bring with them material examples for the types of cladding we use for our builds as well as interior examples. We’ll also go through our digital portfolio for more ideas. Once we’ve gathered the brief, we then go away to design your unique entertainment hub.

Step 3: Planning & Design

Planning and Design of Garden Room

At this part of the process, we’ll handle any planning applications that you may need to get planning permission. However, most builds fit under permitted development so planning permission isn’t necessary.

Our team of designers get to work creating a 3D digital model of your garden gaming room. We incorporate every aspect of the brief then deliver the digital mockup along with the cost of the build. We listen to your feedback and make adjustments to the design until you’re happy.

Once we’ve got the green light to go ahead, we set a date to start the build.

Step 4: Construction


It takes between 1-4 weeks to completely build your garden gaming room. The more complex the design, the longer it takes. We build most of your garden gaming room on site as our carpenters handcraft the structure from the cladding to the window frames. All our garden rooms are built fully insulated. Once the structure is up, we finish up inside with wiring up your power outlets and lighting.

Step 5: Decorating

We dedicate just as much thought and creativity to the interior design of your room as the exterior. Our decorators work with you to encapsulate your desired style, whether you’re after a theme or a particular ambience. From the floors to the ceiling, we handle all the finishing touches, creating a comfortable and stylish games room.

Step 6: Furnishing

Garden Office with Home Cinema

We work with you to bring the space alive with your choice of games and entertainment. Don’t just stop at a pool table. Your games room can function as a cinema as well as a video gaming rig with all your games consoles set up in one place. More of a PC gamer? We can outfit a bespoke gaming setup to accommodate your PC and all monitors.

Also want your games room to be the place you entertain your guests? We can design and build a home bar to provide refreshments while you enjoy a spot of darts or just the company of your friends and family. Whatever is your idea of a good time, we’ll make sure your games room caters for it.

Step 7: The Grand Opening

The Grand Opening

It’s time to open the doors and relax. We break out the champagne and celebrate your personal gaming room being a reality.

What to use your garden gaming room for?

If a gaming room sounds like something you’d like to add to your home, it’s time to start thinking about your choice of entertainment. Each gaming room is different, whether you’re after something more generalised or want it fashioned around a particular use – like a poker room or a pool bar. Here are some ideas to help spark the inspiration.

Family activities

Family Garden Room Sussex

Games are brilliant for bonding during the days off with the kids. It doesn’t have to involve a ping pong table or a darts’ board. You can use your games room to store all your games and activities in one space. Enjoy collecting boardgames? You can display your collections in pride of place. We’ll handle the decorating, displaying your memorabilia how you’d like it. If you’d like something custom-made, give us the details and we’ll see what we can come up with.


Want your gaming room to be where you host parties and get-togethers? We can tailor your room to your needs. We’ve built many garden bars, each with their own character and style. We can set up optics on the wall, install a fridge and storage for drinks, and furnish the space with comfortable seating for your guest to relax and enjoy the garden – and the games.

More interested in personal entertainment? We can make your garden gaming room into a private cinema as well as a gaming room. Just close up the bar, put the darts away, and put on a movie. With black out blinds and subdued lighting, we can really set the scene.


Garden Game Room for video games

Tired of fighting over the TV in the lounge? Having a garden gaming room for videogames lets everyone enjoy their pastimes in private. House all your gaming consoles in a custom-made set up with handcrafted display cabinets. Add some soundproofing to your room and you can get as riled up as you’d like while playing online or offline. Enjoy your choice of entertainment your way without any interruptions.
