Teen Den Ideas to Create a Cool Space
The Kids will want to hang out in
When we think of garden rooms, we often think of offices, studios and gyms. What doesn’t spring directly to mind is the fact garden rooms can be built to create extra space for all the family members, including the kids!
A teen den is ideal to give your kids the space they crave without sacrificing already limited space within the house. To get you inspired we’ve explored some of our top ten den ideas to help get your project started…
A garden room can grow as your kids do!
What starts as a play room, can transform into a tv snug or games room where they can hang out with friends as they get older, or even into a quiet study zone when the exam years come around.
Benefits of a Garden Teen Den:
- Detached from the house meaning no noise disturbing the rest of the household
- Fully insulated meaning your teens have a space to escape to no matter what the weather
- Fully adaptable as the kids grow and family needs change
- A safe space for your kids and friends to hang out
- Cheaper than an extension or loft conversion…find out more here
Teen Den Ideas:
A Space to Hangout
As teens get older so does their need for independence. While they’re still too young to move out of the house and live in the garden, you can still offer them their own teen den space in the garden where they can enjoy their time. For them it’s the perfect place to escape with friends, and for you peace of mind that they’re enjoying themselves from the safety of the garden!
Adding a sofa bed into your teens hangout creates the perfect place for sleepovers without you having to loose a wink of sleep!
A Space to Study
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*.
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.
Multi-Purpose for all the Family
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.
