5 Benefits of Having your Own Garden Studio

Garden Studios are becoming ever more popular in the world of home improvements. Not only are these studios stylish and secure, but they can be a practical way to enhance your external living space too. Here we look at five reasons why you should have your own garden studio.

Additional Living Space

One of the common challenges for most of us is finding space for all our belongings and having room to relax without feeling overwhelmed by STUFF. Home extensions have always been a popular way of creating extra living space for your home. But more recently, outdoor living spaces such as garden studios have been increasing in popularity and are quickly establishing themselves as a leading home improvement.

Garden studios are a perfect way to design your own personal retreat. Home extensions can be complex projects and take a long time to complete. In most cases, garden studios do not require planning permission.

Garden studios are incredibly versatile, and they can be equipped with all the amenities a room in your house would have. So whether you’re looking for a space to expand into for a growing hobby, or require additional space to relax after a long day at work, a garden studio can allow you to do this and more.

Powering your studio has never been easier. Elglaze includes installation of electricity to your studio via a specifically designed and hardwearing power cable. Of course, power will bring modern spotlights, power outlets, and even heating to your garden studio.

Quick and Simple Installation

Waiting for planning permission to be accepted can take time. Then you have the added wait for the extension to be built.  Most of this can be easily bypassed with a garden studio because it’s a standalone structure. Installation is faster and can be a cost-effective option. We deal with the construction, electrics and insulation, which means the studio can be used all year-round. Our garden studios are completely weather-proof, meaning it’s well protected from the outside elements. With Elglaze, you can choose from a wide range of finishes, interior/exterior features and doors and windows for your studio.

As with any Elglaze product, we take care of everything for you, from the planning to groundwork and of course, a fuss-free and quick installation.

Garden Studios are Suitable for All Properties

The various customisation options available make a garden studio’s versatility next to none. At Elglaze, we believe a garden studio will look fantastic in any garden and can be matched to fit any property type. It’s important to note that you don’t even require a large garden to enjoy all the accompanying benefits of a garden studio!

Working From Home Is The New Normal

During 2020, working from home indeed became the new normal in a rather abrupt fashion for many. A garden studio is a perfect way to work from home peacefully, without distraction from others around you. Not only this, but an outside garden studio as your office space allows you to keep your work and personal life distinct from each other. With our styling options, you can create the perfect office set-up.

Your Own Home Gym

The idea of having a gym within a garden studio has been gaining in popularity over the years, especially in 2020 with all the lockdowns we’ve been experiencing. And, with the added uncertainty of not knowing when the local gym will reopen, we don’t think there’s ever been a better time to explore the possibility of having a garden studio as your dedicated workout space.

We all know exercise is beneficial for us, and in these unprecedented times, it’s now more important than ever. With gyms being closed for the foreseeable future, having a garden studio allows for that extra space you need for that treadmill you always wanted or the dumbbell set you didn’t previously have room for! Of course, having a home gym won’t be for everyone. Still, it shows how versatile a garden studio can be!
