Your Ultimate Summer Weekend

7th August 2019

Ah, British Summertime. It’s a constant battle with the weather over the summer months between rain and glorious sunshine. Green Retreats garden rooms is the ultimate summer investment for the temperamental UK weather. Rest easy knowing that your summer BBQ won’t be ruined by that unexpected rain shower, with the option to escape into your garden room.

Planning Your Summer Weekend

We thought we’d help you plan your ultimate Summer weekend with your Green Retreats garden room. We’ll help choose the comfiest lounging g furniture, the best BBQ to invest and even the most relaxing tunes to keep the mood going.

Chill Out

If there is one thing a garden chill-out room needs, it’s a comfy lounge set to sprawl on. We think a corner sofa is a perfect item for this as it’s also big enough to fit all your friends. We love this one from Sofology which can also be colour customised. Take notes from the epic mancave with a corner sofa you can sink into and even its own custom-built bar.

Get Cooking

Every Summer weekend needs a BBQ grill and if you don’t already have one, fret not as Amazon offers a great selection of BBQ’s which you can have delivered quickly and even next day with Amazon Prime. We think this Napoleon Pro 22 is a great option for those family barbecues, with enough room to cook for all your friends too.

And Eating

When it comes to BBQ food, Waitrose offers all the options. From tasty Aberdeen Angus beef burgers to Bramley apple pork sausages. There are even a plethora of options for all the Vegan guests too, such as vegan Spanish whirls and mushroom and leek bangers. Open up those bi-fold doors on your garden room and let the aromas waft in along with the beautiful summer breeze.

Let The Music Take You Away

When it comes to summer tunes. We couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than a good jazzy & lo-fi hip hop playlist. We’ve trawled Spotify to find you the ultimate Summer playlist which you can find here. Let the tunes take you away while you lounge on that marshmallow-y sofa in the shaded comfort of your garden room. Why not invest in a waterproof Bluetooth speak. We love this Bose speaker.

Make The Dream A Reality

For those who already own a Green Retreats garden building, we hope this has inspired your weekend plans and for those dreaming of their ultimate Summer weekend, why not start your garden room journey early and get in touch to see how you can make the dream a reality.

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.
