Why Choose a Garden Room?

Why Choose a Garden Room?

Wednesday 13th of June 2018 12:46 PM

We’ve been having a lot of conversations with customers and colleagues alike since the launch of our newest shipping container conversion – The Garden Room – and the root of each conversation has been the same. Why choose a Garden Room? Well, if you’re not quite in the know about the multitude of benefits that come with having a Garden Room, we’ve listed a few for you…

#1 – A Garden Room Is… DURABLE

Garden Rooms aren’t a quick-fix, space saving solution like a large wooden shed might be. Not only are they bigger and better, but they are built and converted to last. All of our Garden Rooms are made using brand new ISO steel shipping containers and the main benefit of this is that they are constructed from Corten steel – an anti-corrosive, long-lasting material developed to withstand the test of time.

#2 – A Garden Room Is… PORTABLE

Of course, we wouldn’t want you to assume that you can just stick your Garden Room in the back of your car. Moving your container to a different location – whether that be within your own garden or within a different property – would require professionals to do it effectively, but the good thing to know is that the option is there. So if you ever did decide to move house – thanks to the fact that Garden Rooms have no fixed foundations - you can take it with you!

#3 – A Garden Room Is… BESPOKE

We don’t have a batch of garden rooms ready to go with no lead time for the simple reason that each converted container is individually tailored to your unique specification. People choose garden rooms for a multitude of reasons so having them built and designed with their primary use in mind ensures that they are wholly fit for purpose and exactly what you want.

#4 – A Garden Room Is… GUARANTEED

Of course, we deliver to all UK mainland addressed and our professional team provide on-site installation of your garden room, but we don’t just leave it at that and consider our work here as done. No, we want to ensure that you continue to be happy with your Garden Room and we’re on hand if anything’s a miss. That’s why all our Garden Rooms are covered by a comprehensive 5-year structural guarantee against any defects.

#5 – A Garden Room Is… MULTI-FUNCTIONAL

Garden Rooms are being chosen by many different people for many different purposes. The main reason being a space-saving solution but what that space is used for varies massively. From home offices to playrooms to art studios to gyms to the odd man cave, they pretty much tix every box.

#6 – A Garden Room Is… AFFORDABLE

When considering additional space at home, the traditional go-to options are either to move to a new house or to extend your current property. Moving to a new house not only causes a lot of upheaval but can be a very expensive process, just as extending your property can be – especially if things don’t quite go to plan! However, with a Garden Room, the cost is discussed upfront with no strings attached and we can comfortably assure you that there are no hidden charges AND it’s MUCH cheaper than moving or extending.

#7 – A Garden Room Is… READY FOR USE

No need to whip out your paintbrush or head to B&Q for lighting fixtures, we cover all the basics of both the interior and exterior of your converted container so that you don’t have to. As standard, you can expect to have UPVC double-glazed windows and doors, professional plaster boarding and skimming, high quality flooring & skirting, internal LED lighting and electrical sockets, heating and consumer unit. All you need to do is add the finishing touches and you’re good to go!

Convinced yet? We’d be surprised if you weren’t. There are so many benefits to choosing a container converted into Garden Room as a space saving solution for your home, but if you need further convincing, we’re only a phone call away!
