HOWH TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT GARDEN ROOM
To ensure the design of your studio is spot on, you need to get its position, size and look just right. Melwood Cabanas and Garden Rooms has these tips: the perfect spot
Most people prefer their garden room to be in the backyard, and position it so the best angle is visible from the house. You can also position your garden room to solve other problems on your property, such as in a shady area where it’s difficult to get plants to grow; in a “dead space” of your backyard; so that it blocks a view of an ugly building at the back of the garden; in a position that improves privacy within your garden. Most garden rooms are required to be at least 90cm from the boundary, which gives you enough access down the side.
As a general rule, your garden room should be big enough to be useful and to evolve as your needs change, though not so large it overwhelms your garden or throws too much of it into shade. Most structures over 20sq m require council approval. By choosing a design and colour scheme that complements your home’s style, your garden room will look like a natural extension of the home.
Consider where you would like doors and windows placed. Symmetry in your door and window placement makes the garden room look more centred. Consider adding outdoor lights, planting and a deck. melwood.com.au
