Considering the current volatility of the housing market, investing in a garden studio is one of the best ways to increase the value of your property in financial, practical and aesthetic terms. Just think about it: the construction costs are decided at the design stage so you know exactly what youre paying. Because there are no hidden costs, the average cost of a garden studio is far lower than the cost of actually extending your house, not to mention moving to a bigger one. You probably won’t need any kind of planning permission to build one in your back yard and the construction is usually completed off site, minimizing both hassle and expense.
Although the most common usage for garden studios is as a home office, it certainly is not the only way you can use such a space. For instance, if you are completely against bringing your work home, you can still find a garden studio extremely useful. For instance, you may very well use that space as a personal gym. You just have to bring all that heavy but necessary equipment in and arrange the space according to your needs and desires. Afterward, feel free to work out every time you want to. The best part is that you no longer have to worry about how those extra pounds will make you like in your new gym wear.
If you are one of those people that reading and have tones of books stored in almost every corner of the house, a garden studio could very well serve as a your personal library. Just put in a couple of extra shelves and a comfortable armchair and there you have it: a comfortable reading area for you to relax and enjoy your favorite book on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
A garden studio will be an investment that even your children will greatly appreciate, particularly if you turn into their own playroom. They can put here all the toys they want, they can invite their friends and most of all, they can make all the mess they want. Plus, it can always be used as a study area before the exams.
When you have a large family, the last thing you need is for one of your distant cousins to come visit. A home extension would be nice but it is very expensive. A garden studio, on the other hand is a lot cheaper and it makes a comfortable guest room. Plus, it comes with a great view to the garden.
If you think none of the above alternatives are appealing, then how about a little selfishness? The best thing about garden studios is that they can also be used as a playroom for adults. For instance, if you have a hobby that you are very passionate about but it’s quite messy and the tools you use take a lot of space, just move them to the garden studio. Here you can enjoy your favorite activity all you want and no one will bother you. Nor will you be in any of your loved ones way.
An Atelier garden studio is a subtle exercise in balance between aesthetics and function, between attention to high technology and natural materials and the effect on their surroundings.
