Should You Create a Dedicated Garden Room for Your House

Everyone is talking about growing plants and incorporating more nature into their lives. This has become even more prevalent after the massive shift to work-from-home setups for plenty of people. You may be interested in creating a custom garden studio for yourself but are hampered by the idea of whether or not it’s worth the investment.

Here are some factors to consider when making up your mind.

You Can Repurpose or Add a Room

If you have the space, you can choose to repurpose an existing area in your house into a garden room. If not, however, you could instead make use of a garage, greenhouse, or even a shed or a patio to create your garden room.

Another option is to simply remodel your space and add an extension to make space for the garden room. There is no one correct choice, so it depends on your budget and the time you want to put into it.

Proper Insulation Will Make the Garden Usable Year-Round

For any investment to be worth it, you want to consider how much you can actually get out of it. To make your garden room usable no matter what time of year it may be, make sure it is properly insulated. This will ensure that it can be comfortable to hang out in, whether it’s winter or summer. It will also give you more leeway with what plants you can put in the room.

It Will Add Floor Space

You might be surprised at the amount of space you can add to your home with a garden room. Of course, whether or not this will be beneficial depends on your preferences and available space.

If you’re looking for more room, though, it’s a great way to add an area that is inviting and conducive for relaxation. Even if you don’t plan on gardening, it can still be a place to get away and spend some time alone or just work on little projects.

Your Home’s Value Will Change

You may not be looking to sell your home any time soon, but if you live in a desirable neighbourhood, you should know that a garden room can add a dramatic effect on how much your home is worth.

Obviously, its value really depends on the state that you live in and current market trends. That said, you can generally expect a good value increase in homes that have added contemporary garden pods.

Natural Elements Have an Effect on Mental Wellbeing

One of the best parts of having a garden room is that it lets you enjoy the natural elements of your home with the peace of mind that you’re not getting rained on or exposing yourself to outside elements.

Countless studies have proven that nature makes you feel more creative and lessens your stress and anxiety. This makes a garden room perfect whether you want it as a workspace or just an area for recreation.


Adding a garden room can be an excellent addition to your home in many ways. It just depends on your own investment and plans to make sure it is executed in a way that really makes use of its potential benefits.
