Not Just for the Adults

10th July 2019

When we think of garden rooms, we think of offices, studios of home business, to name a few. What doesn’t spring directly to mind is the fact garden rooms can be built to create extra space for the little ones in your life. Kids need space too, after all.

A Green Retreats garden room can also be built as small as 2m x 2m or as large as 30 square metres internally. Give your kids all the space they need to sprawl out and play.

A Space to Play

With homes becoming increasingly smaller and families becoming bigger, finding the space to allow the kids to play or express themselves can be challenging. Not only does a garden room create that extra play space for the kids but it also frees up valuable real-estate within your home and avoids a mess.

Somewhere For the Bookworms

If you’ve got children who are slightly older, why not give them the space they need to study. A separate room where they can escape to and concentrate on their school work. This extra space, away from distractions could be the difference between a C or an A*.

Everyone’s Included

Parents of children with special needs will fully understand the importance of creating a space for their child to be themselves in. Why not give your child their very own sensory room to help stimulation, development and engagement? The benefits of a sensory room include learning through play, improvement in balance, movement and orientation and tackling behavioural problems, just to name a few.

For the Musical Geniuses

If you have a child who enjoys playing an instrument but needs the opportunity to practise, what better solution than their own music room at the bottom of the garden where they can play to their heart’s content and allow the rest of the household to have some peace and quiet. While our buildings are not completely soundproof, we do offer an acoustic pack which reduces the transfer of sound to approximately -45db.
When they’re ready to take the plunge and start performing for an audience, open up the garden room, whack some chairs out in the garden and give them their own stage to shine on.

Mix and Match

Garden rooms can also be multi-functional. Allow the kids to play during the day and then transform the space into an adult retreat after they’ve gone to bed. Create a cinema room where the whole family can lounge in or just the parents for that Friday evening film extravaganza.

Our garden rooms are priced based on the internal sizes rather than the exterior footprint, making it easier for you to plan your work space. A commercial unit from Green Retreats could end up saving you a fortune from the costs of renting a workspace alone. The price includes base, installation and VAT so there are no (nasty) surprises when it comes to final payment.
