4 Sustainable Benefits Of A Garden Room Extension
Planning on getting a garden room? We don’t blame you – and you’re certainly not alone. Thanks to the British summer and the increase in people working from home these days the popularity of garden rooms seem to have gone through the roof, as it were.
We’re guessing you’re probably already a bit fed up of your neighbour, colleague, relative or friends going on about theirs all the time anyway. If you’ve seen the delight a home studio, office, gym or spa could do for you, then read on. We’ve outlined four environmentally friendly benefits of garden rooms extensions that you should know about before you go looking:
1. Environmental Impact
You can have a bespoke garden room built so that it blends in with both your garden environment and the look of your house. Inside it can be customised for whatever purpose you’d like. Externally we offer a choice of timbers which can be varnished or painted to suit. Also, if you opt to have air con installed as part of your build, it's the most energy efficient way to keep your room at the right temperature, compared to, say electric radiators and the like.
It’s perfectly possible – and necessary for a home office in particular – to have a power source connected to your garden room. This will allow you to plug in a computer, kettle, small fridge etc. It’ll also mean you’ll have lighting; LED bulbs tend to be the most cost-effective since they’re longer lasting and use far more electricity than other types of bulb.
3. Insulation & Heating
Most garden rooms tend to have heating and air-conditioning since its economical, easy to fit and very effective. It’s also extremely necessary – given the British weather. Timber itself has good insulating properties. Every single one of our buildings comes fully insulated, so they maintain heat and pretty much work just like an extra room in your house!
4. More Room
If the reason you’re thinking of investing in a garden room is because you feel you need more space in the home then let us reassure you that a garden room is a lot less expensive – and far less hassle – than a home extension.
