Contemporary Garden Rooms

Contemporary Garden Rooms

Summerhouses, conservatories, and even sheds were longstanding garden staples for space-saving solutions until contemporary garden rooms came along.

Contemporary garden rooms are not just about storage. They offer a versatile solution that can be tailored to your specific needs, whether it’s a garden office, home gym, or a relaxation space; their practicality is paired with style, making them a luxury option for your home.

Our garden rooms are contemporary stand-alone structures that can usually be installed at your home without the need for planning permission. This means you can have a contemporary garden room installed faster than a traditional extension or garage conversion.

What is a contemporary garden room?

Contemporary garden rooms are no different from modern garden rooms; both share a simple and sophisticated look that means they’ll always remain current no matter the trend. 

You can expect contemporary garden room designs to feature clean lines, minimalism, and heavy use of materials like glass and metal.

Contemporary garden rooms combine these features to create a striking and modern addition to your garden that can be used all year round, just like any room in your house! 


  • Fully insulated for use all year round
  • Detached from the house for noise control and privacy
  • Adds value and more cost-effective than a home extension or alternative
  • Options to personalise to your style



5 Contemporary Garden Room Ideas

…our top recommendations to create a modern garden building! 


1. Opt for graphite flashes

Nothing speaks contemporary design more than striking black or graphite flashings on a garden building. These more sharp and dynamic lines on modern garden rooms look great in contemporary garden landscape designs, but can also add contrast to a more traditional country garden setting.

2. Go large with doors and windows

Similar to how we’ve seen the trend of people connecting their homes to gardens with bifold doors, you can do the same with modern garden rooms to really bring the outdoors in by going maximalist with glass! This works especially well with garden bars and garden games rooms to create an even bigger alfresco entertaining space.

3. Distinct features to stand out

Make your garden room stand out from the crowd of traditional garden buildings with unique and contemporary features like the curved corner of our G5 garden building design, and the slatted side screens of the G1 garden building, that can be featured on one or both sides.

If you’re looking to go all out, our G1 building design that can have an added garden room canopy, great for hot tub shelters or a shaded dining area.
