Great ways to use your garden room side canopy


Hot Tub Shelter

Great as a hot tub shelter for added privacy and shading, ideal for relaxing under any time of year.


pergola or gazebo alternative

Save space in your garden by adding to your garden room footprint with a side canopy and spare the need for a pergola or gazebo.


al-fresco dining

A shaded space to enjoy dining outdoors comfortably that is built to last and always ready to use.


summer shade

Enjoy being out in the summer sun comfortably without the direct harmful contact in a shaded lounge area.


patio area

Outdoor living and making the most of your garden with a patio area is a great way to increase the feeling of space.

Planning permission

Planning permission is generally not required for our buildings.

Our garden buildings are classed as outbuildings which fall within your permitted development rights, making them as hassle-free to have installed as a typical garden shed.

If you do not have permitted development rights at your property, or need to apply for planning permission for any other reason, we will take care of the application process for you – giving you one less thing to worry about.



As long as the total size of the building is kept under 30 square metres and the height is less than 2.5m then planning permission should not be required. We cover these aspects by only offering these options as standard. The total size of your building includes the garden room and the overhang together.

Popular Use Idea:

Hot Tub Shelter

A great idea for your garden room canopy could be to create a hot tub shelter.

Our garden room buildings are the perfect retreat to relax in away from the stresses of home. A hot tub is a perfect partner for your garden room, both making the most of the outside space and promoting outdoor living. Your shelter gives added privacy and protection from the weather come rain or shine.

We have teamed up with Hot Tub Hub at our Buckinghamshire showroom to display some of the UKs best hot tub designs alongside our garden room buildings!
