How To Design The Perfect Garden Room For Entertaining

26 April 2019

If you want a garden room for entertaining it can be difficult to know what you may need or what features to consider having fitted in. We’ve made a guide to help you design the perfect garden room for you.

The first question you need to ask is ‘how many people will I be hosting’ If you’re eager to host large parties for a variety of friends and family, you will have different requirements than if you prefer smaller, intimate gatherings. A higher ceiling combined with skylights or panoramic windows will create a grand atmosphere, perfect for hosting larger crowds. On the other hand, a lower ceiling and a veranda deck can create a cosier space.

The next question to consider is ‘what kind of entertaining will I be doing?’ If you’re planning on doing garden parties or evening dinners, having a veranda porch is a great way to blend the indoors and outdoors, making the most use of your garden. If you prefer just having a space to talk, or have a shared hobby or past time you want to enjoy with friends then having small conveniences like a kitchenette or bathroom facilities will definitely be a worthwhile investment.

What kind of people will you be having round? If you’re thinking of having more professional or work-related gatherings then a professional, modern style of building might be more suitable. (we recommend the Oxford). If you have extended family or long-distance friends than you can partition your garden room so that it doubles as a guest room and an entertainment/guest space.

Those are just some of the suggestions we’ve listed when considering a garden room for home entertaining. Do you have your own ideas? Let us know and see how we can create your perfect garden room that is bespoke to your needs.
