The first in a series of articles looking at the differences between some of our key products, and detailing some of the benefits of them. First up we ask: what is a Garden Room.

When trying to add space to your home, traditionally you would have the choice between a glass roofed conservatory, or a full extension. In extending living space, this can sometimes feel like a choice between energy efficiency and cost, and prioritising either can feel like a compromise too far, depending on what you want to use the space for. Luckily, we now have a new option which combines the benefits of both an extension and a conservatory. A Garden Room combines the light, airy feel of a conservatory, with all of the energy benefits of a tiled roof. Garden Rooms are becoming some of our most popular products because of their versatility and beautiful look.

So what is a Garden Room? Typically a Garden Room will have dwarf walls and windows, or even full height windows, forming the outside walls, with a tiled roof that is plastered internally.

So what is a Garden Room?


From the inside a Garden Room looks like the perfect blend of a normal room in your house, and a conservatory. Garden Rooms are traditionally lit by spotlights placed in the plastered ceiling, but you also get the benefit of more light from the outside, because you have large windows which will let in a lot of light during the day. You also have the option of a Velux roof light, which will let in even more light. A Garden Room is far more thermally efficient than a conservatory, which means that you can use it as a space for every day living, whether it is summer or winter. Its energy efficiency also comes alongside superior sound proofing, which is important in this room that you want to be able to use all year round.


From the outside a Garden Room looks more like an extension than a conservatory, because it has a tiled roof. Our roof tiles come in a variety of colours, so you know that you can match it to your existing tiles. We will also do our best to match the bricks we use in your Garden Room to the existing brickwork of your house, so that your new Garden Room blends in seamlessly. When planning you Garden Room we will pay attention to the pitch of your house, and will try to match the pitch of your new Garden Room accordingly. Our Garden Rooms are built as an alternative to an extension, and are therefore built to last.

Plenty of Choice

When creating a Garden Room you have so many options to choose from, so you can be sure that it will perfectly meet your needs. The flexibility of a Garden Room means that you can replace the roof on an existing conservatory, transforming the space. We also are able to add a canopy feature to your Garden Room, creating a shaded outside space for the summer. We can even incorporate down lights for anyone who wants light up their outside space after sundown. Our Garden Rooms use uPVC windows and doors to form the walls, and you have the choice of bi-folding doors, French doors, or patio doors to make the most of your space.
