What garden room is right for you?

17th July 2022

Green Retreats have been constructing the finest quality garden room buildings for our customers to make extra space at home since 2005, and not much has changed!

We keep up to date with the most modern construction methods and materials, as well as keeping up with the latest trends in style and decor.

With that in mind, we have 8 distinct styles to choose from to suit every home and garden, so you can figure out what garden room is right for you!



What garden room is right for you?

Garden Room Styles and Designs


All of our buildings are the same on the inside – just the outside that looks different!
No matter what style of building you choose, the same standard options and features apply. No one building is ‘better’ than the other!


– Inspiration

compact, minimalistic, squared, rustic, simplistic 

inspiration garden room 

The Inspiration garden room has the smallest external footprint vs internal space. This makes it a great choice for a building that takes up less space in the garden, being a popular choice for smaller gardens.

The simplicity of this design also helps it blend into its surroundings. So no matter what garden room size you are looking for, the Inspiration will be a more subtle design that can blend into fence panels or into the planting of your garden.

Due to the scaling back for materials on the outside to keep it small and compact, this is our cheapest garden room building. The quality is exactly the same as the rest of the buildings from Green Retreats.



– Expression

traditional, log-cabin style, slanted roof, rustic, grand feature

The Expression garden room has a very traditional log cabin aesthetic. The large slanted roof overhangs on all sides, creating a grand hooded feature.

The Expression building is a perfect fit for larger gardens or gardens with traditional decor where this luxurious design would be right at home.

You can, of course, transform the standard appearance of any of our buildings to make them suit your needs and style! For example, the Expression as standard looks very traditional, but when clad with our composite black cladding with black fascia, the whole building has a highly modern feel:

– Pinnacle

artistic, sharp triangular features, forward-leaning front, modern, art-deco

The Pinnacle is our artistic and architecturally stunning design. This building has a sharp front angle feature that leans forward at the top to make a modern feature. This building certainly stands out!

This building also comes with one unique style option in our angled feature window. This window is only made available on this building as it compliments the triangular front leaning aspect.

– Edge

modern, clean lines, artistic, fully enclosed front frame, squared sides, box-like, stylish

 modern edge design garden room

The Edge building is a modern design, with a hooded frame front (or edge!) that makes a stunning feature. The roof extends squared to the front with enclosed sides and a small deck to create that front frame.

The Edge has clean lines to make a cube/squared shape that is incredibly modern. What’s more, this can be styled with black or graphite inserts to create more shadows to contour the building front to add more drama.




– TGO1

modern, lodge-style, contemporary, industrial edge, slatted accents 


The TGO1 garden room combines modern styling with traditional garden lodge feel to create a current-day classic design. Coming with the option of full or slatted side screens to both right and left sides, the TGO1 is customisable to your desired style finish!

Stylish graphite or black flashing adorns the slanted roof of this building, creating an impressive hooded feature that extends from all sides.



– TGO2

contemporary, compact, squared, simplistic 


The TG02 building style stands out as compact yet still very contemporary. Similar to the Inspiration this building style offers the most practical space saving solution with a compact exterior against maximum usable internal space.

The striking black or graphite accents make the TGO2 a great choice for smaller gardens where you still want a modern design aesthetic.



– TGO3

striking, industrial look, contemporary, boxy

The TGO3 building is a sharply modern design featuring an enclosed side that is integrated with the hood and deck with a square-edge detail making it a striking garden room choice.
The optional full height picture window makes light flood the internal space is an an excellent choice to give another viewpoint of your garden.


– TGO4

curve, flowing, modern style, artistic


Design-led and distinctive, the TGO4 building is the only garden office design with a curved corner aspect to join the enclosed side, hood and deck. This eye-catching feature unifies these elements perfectly and makes an artistic statement.

Options to ‘make it yours’

Not only can you choose the size of your building, but you can also tailor it to suit your needs and style with a range of options.
We like to keep things simple and uncomplicated, which is why many of your options are available included in the price of your building. e.g. internal light style, external light style, a range of door and window styles and stylish oak laminate floor colours.

To make your building your own there is also a range of optional upgrades. Items like bi-fold doors and alternative cladding options can completely transform the appearance of any of our buildings, so get creative and think out of the box to create something that’s just yours.
