With the summer sun just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning your social garden room design! If you want a home from a home, to reconnect with nature, endless garden room design opportunities to bring your hobbies to life or you simply just want to add value to your property – a garden room is both a fantastic and luxurious way to bring your friends, family, and those you hold dear together.

Bar Area

With the season of entertaining almost upon us, playing mixologist has never been so on-trend! A garden room design can include a bar with alcohol, but if that isn’t your style, a tea and coffee station can work great too. A bar can fully transform your garden room into a more sociable space. Along with the design of the bar, you can also control comfort so that entertaining is more pleasurable. Not only will your garden room boom with social interaction, but it will also be a return on investment when it comes to your property’s value. With your own garden room bar, there’s no need to worry about that last call!

Games Room

Creating a games room within your garden room is a great way for friends and family of all ages to come together. Your game of choice is also completely up to you! You can populate the room with a football table, an air hockey table or even a pool table. But if you have a different taste in games, setting up a television with an Xbox or PlayStation is a great alternative! Not only that but because these games are small, they can be set up around other furnishings, such as a bar or even a gym area.

Kitchen Area

Plan your garden as a unique focal point with a garden kitchen area that merges with your outdoor space! This is truly unique and will make your garden all the rage amongst your family and friends. A kitchen area in your garden room is perfect for dining, cooking and entertaining as it all happens in one space without having to go back and forth to your house. Not only this, but a garden room kitchen can also provide extra storage and even facilitate independent living for family members and friends.


Bi-folding doors are more compact than standard sliding doors and offer excellent natural light. The concertina design on bi-folding doors opens an entire wall of glass and when shut, the glass offers a much larger view than a window or door would. Because of this, bi-folding doors can also create an open plan feeling that ties together the inside of your garden room to your outside space. From there, you can then choose to have a patio and decorate it with furniture to further strengthen that open-plan feeling and encourage social behaviour with those on the inside and out.

Not only can you choose to decorate your patio with furniture, but you can also use firepits and hot tubs to further push social interaction. Hawksbeck’s Ultimate Range have designated areas for hot tubs and extra seating outside, so make sure you consider your exterior options first to find the best garden room for you, your needs and your garden.
