Tiny Garden Room Ideas

26th June 2019

A revolution has begun. Tiny-house is a movement which began only a short number of years ago. The revolution saw many people rejecting the need for “stuff” and embrace living a minimalist lifestyle. Now, building a garden room to create more space isn’t necessarily sticking to the tiny-house rules but we feel that having a small, tranquil space to escape to, away from the, often chaotic home is necessary. Let us help you decide on the best use for your tiny garden room!

Pick your Mantra

Looking for a space to escape to? Ever thought of meditation? Meditation rooms are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. Many people are looking to meditation to bring peace and clarity to their lives. Having space with light and easy access to your garden allows you to become one with nature. Or opt for a darker room with fewer windows to help transport you to inner peace. Something like this 3.5m x 5m Edge would be perfect!

Practice your Asana

Along the same lines, why not have your own yoga sanctuary? Lighting is also important here. Bring in as much light as possible, but add sheer curtains to add that ethereal light to the room. Try and have something in the room, such as a Buddha or even a spot outside that you can put all your focus into. The beautiful shape of a Pinnacle can also add a creative flair to your garden.

Let Creativity Flow

If yoga or meditation just isn’t for you, then a small room for you to escape to for your hobbies is another option. If you enjoy writing but can’t seem to find the space, time or concentration to do this, then a tiny garden room for you to escape to might be the solution. Or if you need a space which inspires your art, why not surround yourself with nature? An Inspiration, with its clean lines, is a perfect space to let your creativity shine.

Settle in with a Good Book

Or even a small retreat to read in? What sounds better than being cosy in your tiny garden room, curled up with a good book in the winter. Or even in the summer with the sunshine beaming in the breeze blowing. Another tiny building which fits perfectly in even the smallest gardens is this 4m x 3m Edge. You could also consider an Expression which adds a similar quality to your garden.

If a tiny garden room just isn’t for you, get in touch with us or visit our garden rooms and prices page to find out more about the various sizes we offer across the range.

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.
