The countdown to Christmas has begun! Many of us will begin making arrangements with loved ones, shopping for gifts and reminding ourselves how best to de-frost the turkey! The addition of a garden room is one way to alleviate the pressure for many households through the festive season. Here are some top tips on how you can use your garden building to make the most of Christmas:
1 - A Guestroom
Putting your guests in the garden may sound inhospitable, but in actual fact our insulated garden buildings are perfect for a good nights sleep. Whether you provide a sofa bed or a blow up mattress, our garden rooms offer a warm and comfortable stay. If your guests are with you for more than one night, a self-contained building allows visitors to have independence and privacy throughout their stay. Remember, we can install toilets, shower rooms and kitchens into our garden rooms, so they'll have a home away from home in your garden.
2 - Shhh! It's a very good hiding place for Presents
Take advantage of having a secure room away from the main house where little ones could be on the hunt for surprises! The quality locks on our doors and windows are insurance-recognised, so you can hide your gifts safe in the knowledge that they will not be found.
3 - Store the Spare Fridge/Freezer
If your home becomes Piccadilly Circus over the festive season, you may choose to stock up on food and beverages. With our bespoke design service, we can add separate storage areas with electrical points to your garden room design. If you own a spare fridge or freezer, this is the perfect place to store it throughout the year. It's a place for emergency food supplies when you don't know who will come knocking on your door with a Christmas card!
4 - Santa's Garden Room Grotto
Do you love to go all out with your Christmas decorations? Then why not turn your garden room into Santa's grotto? With tinsel, fairy lights and a bit of imagination, the room can be transformed into a fun retreat for the family to enjoy throughout the festive season. Why not leave out a carrot for Rudolf, or discover Santa's footprints across the room in the morning! Hosting a party? A garden building is an impressive space to wine and dine guests, keeping any mess away from your main home.
5 - A Place for the Children to play with their Toys
The number of toys and games received on Christmas morning can often clutter a busy household which is preparing itself for a day of feasting and visitors. Your children will love using their garden room on occasions like this as it allows them to play with their toys without getting in the way. If you use your Garden Room as a family space, the games console or dolls house can be set up in preparation for the big day.
6 - Hide away Work until the New Year
Many of our customers use their building as a Garden Office. The benefit of having your workplace in a separate room from the house, is that paper work will not spill into your home. Over Christmas you can lock away any reminders of work, ready to return with a fresh outlook in the new year.
If you think that a Garden Room could help to transform your Christmas, then get in touch to discuss your requirements. We can help you to have your own retreat in the garden for next December.
