The garden is an extension of your home that can be used all year round, thanks to garden buildings from Hawksbeck. So why not make the most of it? Whether you want to add an office or gym – there’s a Hawksbeck garden room for every type of space and budget.
Home workout space
A garden building is a great place to work out because it can be used for any exercise, from yoga and pilates to resistance training and cardio. You have plenty of space to move around, so if you’re worried about getting in the zone and feeling claustrophobic, this won’t be an issue in your garden room gym.
If you want to create your own home gym in your garden, here are some ideas:
- Think about what equipment you need – weights, resistance bands, or both! You may also want some exercise balls too (we love these). If there isn’t enough space in your garden building, consider investing in a folding treadmill that folds away neatly when not in use, making for a more multi-functional space that can be used for several different workout routines.
Productive garden room office
If you’re lucky enough to work from home, then there are great benefits to be had. However, it can also be hard to separate your home life and your working life, which can lead to stress and anxiety.
You may have an office in your house, but having a dedicated workspace outside the main household, like a luxury office space in your garden, will help you keep everything more organised and ensure no one ever has cause for complaint! Plus, it’s often much nicer out in the garden than staying inside all day.
A garden building used as an office is perfect because you get much more flexibility with them; they don’t have fixed desks or cupboards, so if something changes your business plan, then no problem! You can move things around as needed without worrying about paying for new furniture whenever something changes.
At-home spa space
An at-home spa space in your garden building is a great way to relax and unwind. Our favourite idea is one that we think you would love too! A hot tub can be added as an extra feature to any garden room, but it is best suited for a built-in sauna or, even better, a cold plunge pool that helps rejuvenate those post-workout aches and pains.
A soundproofed music studio
A music studio in your garden room is a great place to store your instruments, keep your music and make the most of any space outside your home. Your garden building can be transformed into a funky hideaway where you can get away from it all and relax with friends or family.
Soundproofing is important if you enjoy playing loud music – we highly recommend Hawksbeck’s garden buildings for this purpose! A soundproofed garden room will enable you to play whatever you like without disturbing anyone else in the house or upsetting neighbours nearby.
We’re sure you’ve seen the golf simulators on TV in some posh homes. And, even if you haven’t, we bet you can imagine how cool it would be to play golf inside your own home. We thought so too! Hawksbeck garden rooms can turn this dream into a reality. A golf simulator is a great way to improve your game with an indoor practice facility that mimics outdoor conditions and features real-time weather conditions and day/night cycles.
You might think this is only for professional golfers – but it doesn’t have to be! Most golf simulators are designed for all levels of players and can simulate hundreds of different courses worldwide. You can even play against friends or family members through online leaderboards or multiplayer modes (if they have one!).
The ultimate bar area
If you love entertaining and hosting get-togethers, a Hawksbeck garden room bar is the perfect addition to your outdoor space. It can be used with other furnishings as part of an outdoor entertainment area or on its own – it’s up to you! An entertaining space outside in your garden building can make your home tranquil and mess-free.
Luxury guest annexe
A garden annexe is a great addition to any home, providing extra space for guests. The best part is that because it’s in the garden, it’s separate from your home and can be accessed via a private entrance.
This will keep your guests feeling relaxed and secure while staying at your house—and you won’t have to worry about them using up all your bathroom facilities! It also gives them their own private kitchenette to prepare food or drinks without being underfoot in yours and making themselves at home.
If you have the room, you could even extend this out further by building a larger annexe with a living area so that it becomes more like a home than just a guest suite. All garden buildings from Hawksbeck are built to building regulation standards, meaning they are safe for guests to sleep in.
