Using your Garden Room at Christmas

As the festive season approaches, many of us find ourselves immersed in the hustle and bustle of our Christmas preparations! While the heart of the home is often the focal point of celebrations, a garden room could add a touch of extra magic to your festivities. This Christmas, consider unlocking the full potential of your garden room by exploring creative and festive uses. Here are just some of the ways that you can use your garden room through December.

Winter Wonderland Escape
For many of us, Christmas brings a busy diary of social events as we meet with our friends and family members. If finding a local venue or having a house full of guests feels overwhelming, look to your garden room to create a winter wonderland retreat. Adorn the space with twinkling fairy lights, plush blankets, and festive cushions. Set up a hot chocolate station, and encourage friends and family to gather for catching up with festive cheer. Garden Rooms are perfect social hubs away from your home, making them an ideal spot for intimate gatherings.

Crafting at Christmas
Whether crafting is a hobby or your career, a garden room provides a professional working space. Christmas is a busy time for crafters – particularly if you attend Christmas markets or sell your goods on online platforms such as Etsy. A garden room allows you to have all of your equipment under one roof, as well as the privacy to work disruption-free. Our garden rooms can be adapted to cater to your crafting needs. If you’re a ceramist, you’ll be inspired by our Garden Room for Pottery project in West Sussex. And if you’re an artist, you’ll love this Garden Room with Corrugated Metal Cladding.

Santa’s Storage Space
If your garden studio is used for one purpose such as a home gym or office, there may not be flexibility to transform your room into a festive grotto. However, garden rooms can have one practical purpose – Santa’s storage space. Garden rooms are an ideal spot for hiding away your Christmas gifts and treats. The added bonus? You’ll have more space in the house through December!

Quiet Retreat for Reflection
Amidst the festive chaos, it’s important to carve out moments for reflection and relaxation. Your garden room can become a serene retreat where you can escape the repetitive Christmas music and talk of present shopping. Set up a comfortable reading nook, bring in soft blankets and cushions, and create a tranquil space where you can unwind with a good book or simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

An Extended Dining Space
If you’re hosting a large Christmas gathering, consider utilising your garden room as an extended dining area. Set up tables with festive decorations and enjoy a memorable feast surrounded by the unique character of your outbuilding. This not only provides extra dining space for guests, but also adds a touch of novelty to your Christmas celebrations.

Festive Guest Quarters
If your garden room is set up as an annex, then it is an ideal place for having your guests to stay overnight during the Christmas period. An annex will offer your friends and family a home from home in the garden with a private place to wash, eat and sleep. They are particularly ideal for guests who stay for longer periods who may want an element of independence whilst visiting from abroad for example.

If you live in a desirable area for tourists, you could set up your garden accommodation as a holiday rental or Airbnb. Decorate the room with festive flair, provide Christmas-themed amenities, and offer a unique lodging experience for travellers that will make them want to return year after year. This is a fantastic source of income, and one that could cover the cost of Christmas in no time at all!

New Years Party Space
As Christmas draws to a close, the anticipation of New Year’s Eve festivities begins to fill the air. While homes often serve as the default venue for ringing in the new year, there’s a hidden gem waiting to be discovered — the garden room! Select your favourite tunes, replenish your cocktail bar and create a captivating space for the new year countdown. Your guests will love the self-contained party room that connects seamlessly with the garden, and you’ll benefit from not having large numbers of guests in your home. All of our garden room packages have the option of soundproofing. If your sound system is pride of place, check out some of the noise reduction techniques we can include on our Music Studio page.

Whether you’re hosting gatherings, crafting, or simply seeking a quiet escape, a garden room is a versatile space that can add a touch of magic to your December celebrations. At Miniature Manors, we create garden rooms that will be used year after year. Our bespoke design and build service means that we will create a studio that not only caters to your needs, but compliments your surrounding garden. To begin the design process, please complete our Project Planner or Contact Us. After providing an initial estimate and design, we will offer a complimentary site visit ahead of booking in your garden room build. You’ll have your dream garden room ready for Christmas in no time!
