For instance, soundproofed garden rooms can be used as a family games room or a place for the children to hang out with their friends where they can make as much noise as they like without disturbing the neighbours!

You could kit it out with a multitude of fitness equipment and enjoy working out in your own private gym. Adding a flat screen TV and sound system to your design would certainly give your garden room the X Factor!

Your garden room could be used for running a small business and would make an ideal home office in the garden or a place to run a health spa, beauty practice or even have an arts and crafts studio.

If you have guests staying over or need an extra bedroom for an adult or older children then a garden room is perfect for creating a posh pad for visitors or members of your household.

Used as additional sleeping accommodation or as a business base, your garden room also benefits from being located near enough to your property for household stays or emergencies.

On the other hand, when used as a gym or family entertainment suite, a garden room will be far enough away for you to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet, especially if you have aspiring musicians in the family!

So not only are garden rooms versatile in usage, they also make an ideal and practical additional space to your home, where you can enjoy the type of privacy that is often impossible to find inside your own home.
