Garden rooms have become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years, as they offer homeowners an additional space to use as a home office, gym, entertainment room, or even as a place to relax and unwind. Here are some current and emerging trends for garden rooms in the UK:
If you’re looking to add extra space to your home, you might be weighing up the options of a house extension or a garden room. Both options have their pros and cons, and ultimately the decision will depend on your personal circumstances and requirements. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of building a garden room compared to a traditional extension.
Our in-house designer, Matt, will meet with you to understand your needs and flesh out a brief. Following that meeting, designs and renders like the ones below will be produced. The design process takes around two weeks and ensures the amenity and aesthetic of your garden room will be exactly what you want.
You can now visit the Primrose display room at Arnold Laver in Borehamwood! Open Monday to Friday 7:30 to 16:30.
The original idea was to build a contemporary cedar-clad garden room which could be used as a work-from-home space and gym. With a Primrose project its OK to change the plan half way through and theses photos illustrate this perfectly!
This is the second stand-alone garden room Primrose have completed during lockdown. The government advice to the construction industry is now clear, carry on working if you can do so safely. Primrose have put in place stringent site operating procedures that allow us to build our garden rooms while observing social distancing.
The garden room below, for Catherine, will be used partly as a den for the kids and partly for working from home. When directly compared with Green Retreats, this project was under 13% cheaper and was delivered within four weeks of order placement.
The design contemporary and unfussy. Canadian cedar cladding with minimal profile aluminium bi-fold doors and grey composite decking mean this building will last upwards of 30 years.
In mid-March 2020, Primrose Projects faced a dilemma; how can we keep our teams busy without sending people into London on public transport? Before the pandemic, a typical project for Primrose would be a six month residential refurbishment in London – even longer for retrofit basement projects. Our London sites often have fifteen people on site at one time making the idea of social distancing a fantasy.
Our solution was to diversify. Primrose have constructed many garden rooms in the past but usually part of a wider building project. With an increase in people working from home and a need for us all to social distance, the idea that Primrose could offer garden room construction as a stand-alone service was born.
The garden room shown below is the first project undertaken in Abbots Langley as part of our ‘10% offer’. We promise to beat the national garden room companies by 10%. In addition, we can do any associated building or landscaping works using local tradespeople.
Primrose is still very much a high-end residential contractor, but now with the added benefit of offering market-beating garden rooms. This one cost less than £20k and was completed in three weeks with only a one week mobilisation period from placing of order.
