That’s where we can help! In this post we are going to cover two of the most popular choices when deciding how to extend the home. In most cases, the ultimate goal is to achieve extra space that is safe, comfortable, cost-effective and private.
For many years, the loft conversion has reigned supreme. However, there are some considerable negative implications that can arise from such an addition to the home. A loft conversion is still very much a part of the house. It is also situated above everyone else. In some cases, this expensive conversion may still not yield the additional space one might have hoped for. These conversions can also be awkward to access, with a staircase required, they may not be best suited to the ageing guest. The resulting proportions may not transpire to those originally intended. You could end up with a space that feels cramped and unrewarding.
The core benefits of a garden room are the privacy and the multiple uses that this space can lend itself due to the sheer versatility of the building. It can adapt to the ever-changing needs of the family and/or business. A garden room is so much more than just an additional bedroom and can be enjoyed by the entire family. It can and does feel like a smaller detached house, right next to yours! Can you imagine trying to soundproof a loft conversion?
On a final note, one cannot ignore the green credentials that a garden room brings with it. With sedum roofing being just one of the very eco-friendly options when planning your garden room, it allows sustainable and environmentally friendly practices and materials. It also connects you more to nature, as you are in the garden, all year round, to either enjoy the splendour of warm sunlight filling the living space, or watching the snow fall on your hedgerows and trees, whist snuggled up near the fireplace – in your garden room.
