Inside / outside seating areas

As I am writing this post I am imagining that the weather over the bank holiday weekend will be warm and sunny (I know I’m a dreamer!), and that this weather will inspire you to think about incorporating an outdoor seating area into your garden room design.

Veranda areas have been a popular addition to a garden room since the early days, and in recent years buyers have added deck areas around their garden room to create outdoor seating areas.

Over the last year or so a new trend has appeared – the indoor / outdoor seating area. Rather than creating a veranda along the front of the garden room, designers are creating good size seating areas alongside the main room. The spaces they create have a roof which offers shelter, but open walls to create a real connection with the garden.

We have modelled up one of these garden rooms with indoor / outdoor seating to show you what we mean:

Garden office with covered seating area 800 x 600

This layout really can extend your use of the garden room. Because the seating area has a roof you can still sit outside even if the weather is not great, or too hot to sit in the sun.

We have showcased some example of this style of building on The Garden Room Guide, take a look Garden Spaces and Garden Lodges to get inspiration for your own project.
