Garden studios are the perfect way to add extra living space to your home. Whether you want to use it as a second living room, office space, or just somewhere to relax, there are endless possibilities. Their versatility means homeowners can use this space in so many ways!

Garden rooms are relatively easy to build and don’t require planning permission in most cases. Whether you choose our complete project delivery service, or you build your own garden room using our DIY SIP Kits, you can add valuable space to your home in a matter of weeks rather than months.

Finally, garden rooms are a great way to add value to your property. If you ever decide to sell up, potential buyers will be impressed by the extra living space that a garden room provides.

Depending on your requirements, there are many different types of garden studios. No matter your budget or needs, Vivid Pods have the perfect solution for you.

Here are some great ways to use your Vivid Pods garden room:

Dance Studio

A garden room can be easily transformed into a dance studio with a few simple modifications. By installing full-length mirrors on the walls, you can see your reflection and correct your posture and movements. Soundproofing the walls, windows, and doors will help reduce noise and prevent disturbing neighbours. With these modifications, you can offer a variety of dance classes from the comfort of your own home!

Garden Gym

A garden gym is a great way to get your daily exercise in the comfort of your own home. This is especially important if you struggle to find enough room to do workouts in your house. A garden gym is also more cost-efficient in the long run, as you can ditch that monthly gym membership and use the room for other purposes when you’re not working out!

Home Office 

A home office is a perfect solution for those who want to work from home but find it challenging to maintain a good work/life balance. With a home office in the garden, you can create a physical place of work that is a short walk from your home. This makes it easier to switch work mode on and off when it’s time to do so! Many people also find garden offices inspiring and relaxing places to work, enabling them to focus and concentrate their minds.

Guest House 

A guest house is a small house on your property where friends and family can stay. They provide both you and your visitors with private space and mean you can invite guests to stay without giving up valuable living space in your home.

Man Caves

Man caves have grown in popularity in recent years. As the pandemic kept us all cooped up at home for months on end, they because a way of providing additional space in the home for hobbies or just simply ‘getting away’ from home. Of course, man caves are a great idea for anyone, not just for men!

Pool Room 

A pool room is an enclosed space that houses a swimming pool, allowing people to swim comfortably regardless of the weather outside. These rooms are often seen as a luxurious addition to a home and can also add significant value to a property, making them a wise investment for those looking to sell their home in the future.

Yoga Studio 

If you’re looking for a way to make your yoga practice more relaxing and enjoyable, you may want to consider building your yoga studio. Having your own dedicated space will allow you to focus and concentrate more fully on your practice without distractions from your family or other household activities.


A garden studio can be transformed into a beautiful and functional space and with a bit of creativity, you can turn your room into a cosy retreat, a home office, or even a guest room.
