Garden Rooms – Can You Sleep In Them?

Garden rooms offer that extra space for whatever you need. A gym, office, playroom or games room. There are so many ways to make use of a garden room. But, have you ever wondered if you can sleep in a garden room?

Here we look at how your garden room can double up as a place to sleep.

Garden Rooms as Overnight Accommodation

It is certainly possible to use a garden room as accommodation. Of course, you will need the required planning permission, and the building will need to be fit for purpose. Your room will need to be well insulated or support adequate heating. Anything else, such as the size of the space and mattress quality, is down to budget and preferences.

Many people use their garden room as a comfortable guest room or extra bedroom. Whether you want this space exclusively for sleeping or doubles up as a guest room and office, you will need to ensure you invest in the right garden room.

Using a specialist garden room installer, such as Fern Garden Rooms, is the best way to ensure you get the ideal build for you.

There are many features and amenities that can be added and installed when you have a garden room. The possibilities are endless!

Planning Permission

If you intend to use your garden room as accommodation, you need planning permission and to meet specific building regulations. You should contact your local planning authority to apply for the relevant planning permission. You will find the information you need on the gov.uk website.

You must give as much detail about your plans as you can, along with precise drawings and measurements. It can take some time for the application to be complete, and there may be a fee, but it will all be worth it when you have that beautiful extra bedroom.

The Benefits of Using a Garden Room as a Bedroom

There are several benefits to having a garden room as a bedroom. It offers a private and cosy area, away from the house and distractions. It is also a fantastic place for guests to stay. You can design it and arrange it to your style, and it can always double up as an office, gym or any other space.

A garden room can significantly boost the value of a property, and if it doubles as extra sleeping space, you can expect the value to increase further.
