Create Extra Space At Home Annexe Ideas

Own a property with sufficient outdoor space in your garden? You might already have considered an annexe to accommodate a family member. Caring for an elderly relative is one of the most common reasons for constructing an annexe, particularly with high fees for care homes in mind, however their use has changed over the past few decades. Cabin Master can offer a range of garden rooms that homeowners are just as likely to use for their child as for their ageing parent! It’s an especially useful way for parents to give their children independence when they are struggling to get onto the property ladder.

As an added benefit, it also increases the main house’s overall value.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is An Annexe A Good Idea?

A Cabin Master annexe is the best, and one of the most cost effective ways to keep your loved ones close. It is absolutely worth it to make sure that your family members are safe and doing good, as well as allowing yourself (and them) some independence.

What Is A Maximum Size For An Annexe Without Planning Permission?

Although we don’t deal with planning permission, your Annexe garden building can really be any size so long as it is not larger than 50% of your garden size and isn't built past the front of your house.

 
 

What is a Garden Annexe?

Whether you're looking for a space to keep your elderly relatives close by, or an area for your teenage kids to let loose, but with the added bonus of maintaining their independence, these purpose-built, future-proof dwellings provides independence for their parents and proximity for family support, striking the ideal balance. Serving as a cost-effective, comfortable alternative to traditional care homes or extending you property. As teenagers navigate their path towards adulthood, they often crave their own space—a place where they can entertain friends, study in peace, and unwind, all while flexing their burgeoning independence. At this pivotal life stage, a garden room can perfectly meet these needs, offering an exclusive haven a stone's throw away from the family home.

How Should I Design My Annexe?

  • Keep your annex interior neutral: Neutral colours like whites, greys, pinks and earthy tones are perfect for creating a warm and homely ambience in your annex. It’s  just a question of choosing the right tone for you! Continue that colour palette throughout to create a flow from room to room.

 

  • Less is more: A few eye-catching accessories will add to the overall feel and elegance of your annex. Less is most definitely more when it comes to keeping your annex looking ultra-stylish. 

 

  • Make use of all your space: Start as you mean to go on in your Cabin Master annex and take pride in living in the most charming and organised space ever! Take a trip to your local IKEA store to be inspired by all the different racks, storage boxes and ideas they have to transform everything from your fridge to your wardrobe and everything in between.

What's the Difference Between a Garden Room and an Annexe?

Bespoke garden rooms are similar to an annexe, with the difference being that garden rooms aren’t designed for you to live in but more to make better use of your outdoor space. Whether you want a dedicated gym area to workout in, an outdoor home office, relaxing yoga space, studio to get to creative in – the possibilities really are endless & at Cabin Master we can help make your dreams a reality.

Is an Annexe Classed as a Separate Dwelling?

In order for a self-contained annex to qualify as a dwelling, it will need to have the facilities to provide the basic living necessities such as facilities for personal hygiene, consumption of food and drink, storage of personal belongings and a place to sleep. 

Based on our popular garden rooms our Granny Garden Annexes are heat efficient, self-contained living spaces, creating warm and welcome home environments thanks to the exceptional insulation and high-quality double-glazed windows and doors.
