5 of the best garden rooms to help you make the most of your summer

Summertime doesn’t just mean lounging outdoors but is a great opportunity to make the most of garden rooms or conservatories in your home. Here are 5 of our favourite styles…

1, The adaptable one

We love how flexible this room is with its fold back ceiling height doors, which can turn the place into a suntrap or a breezy terrace space in seconds. This way, no matter how warm it may or may not be outside, the room still feels summery and makes the most of any sunshine.

2, The rustic one

Garden rooms work just as well in traditional interiors as they do in a contemporary one, and rustic themes are no exception. Try adding lashings of rattan and wicker to boost the natural feel of the space and stick to neutral colours to amp up the feeling of warmth.

3, The modern one

If your home is on the contemporary side then take a look at this simple but striking garden room. The clean lines, monochrome fittings and no-nonsense sliding doors are especially perfect for an urban household and a great way to make the most of even the smallest spot of outdoor space.

4, The all-weather one

Garden rooms aren’t just for summer, so think about creating a room that will feel just as cosy with winter sun. We love how this room has layered textiles and materials in summery colours but look warm enough to cuddle up in when the seasons change.

5, The outdoor one

While this may technically be a garden rather than a garden room, we love how this set up makes the most of a warm climate and stylish furniture. After all, why not break the rules and move a space outdoors if you can?!
