Using Your Garden Room All Year Round

Whether you love the late summer sun or the golden glimpse of autumn, you can enjoy your outside space all year round with a garden room.

A garden room makes the perfect summer soiree and sun shelter, beautifully connecting the inside with the out. But it’s not just a perfect pad for the warmer months. A well-insulated, beautifully designed garden building is just as welcoming during the winter. It provides the ideal space for all your festivities – from All Hallows’ Eve to seeing in the New Year and everything in between! For many people, the garden room is a heartfelt place for family and friends, throughout the seasons.

Social Occasions in the Winter


As Halloween falls on 31st October, the weather can be a little temperamental. That’s where having a warm, dry social space in your garden can be a real advantage when hosting a Halloween party. Spooky treats, light bites and creepy cocktails can be served long into the darkness of night in your stylish outside room. If you and your friends are rather competitive, you could easily host your own pumpkin carving competition in your garden room. Or how about an apple bobbing contest? If you’re not keen on cleaning up all the mess, simply place sheeting on your garden building floor. Imagine adorning your lawn at the end of the night with your spooky creations for all to see.

Bonfire night

Whenever we think of the 5th November, fantastic fireworks, hot chocolate, and cosying up with friends and family come to mind. A garden room is a great social space for Bonfire night, especially if you fancy the full ‘fireworks’ extravaganza without having to stand in the cold. If you choose an outside room with a large glazed opening, your guests can watch your display in the warmth. You might even choose to have some soft furnishings and cable knitted blankets for extra comfort.


There is something magical about decorating your outside room for Christmas. Imagine your children or grandchildren waking up in the morning and following Father Christmas’ footprints to your garden grotto. If we’re lucky enough to have snow, the beautiful natural wood cladding will peep through the crisp white to create your very own gingerbread social space. Think of glistening fairy lights, the scent of a festive candle, and sipping a buck’s fizz as you unwrap gifts. A visit to your garden building will quickly become a family tradition.

Benefits of Installing a Garden Room in the Winter

Besides being ready for all the seasonal celebrations, there’s some very practical reasons for installing a garden room in the winter.

First of all, installing your garden room in the cooler months is more convenient. You don’t have the hassle of having to sidestep times when your garden is in full use.

If you introduce a garden room in either November or December, you’ll improve your garden just in time for the New Year. You’ll have plenty of time to think carefully about the complimentary plants and flowers you may wish to purchase.

You could even plan your garden redesign in the comfort of your garden room. After all, having an unrestricted view of your garden from the comfort of your sheltered social space will give you a new perspective.

You’ll also gain much-valued time in your garden room during the Winter since they offer fantastic thermal insulation. Amazingly, you’ll notice all the little seasonal things that perhaps would have alluded you before.

Watch as the leaves change colour, winter berries appear, robins grace the sky, and the morning frost creates a glistening carpet. There’s something quite peaceful and serene about creating an outside social space.

Seeing your garden through a new lens will inspire creativity. You might even find yourself adding garden paraphernalia to your Christmas list!
