How Can I Create a Bespoke Garden Room?

Published: 13/03/2023

Many homeowners are crying out for more versatile storage and recreational spaces so are considering the means of summerhouses, log cabins and garden sheds to meet their needs.   

It’s true that UK gardens are becoming smaller, so new homeowners are trying to make the most of the limited space that they have.  However, it doesn’t mean you don’t have enough space to create a garden room! Anything is possible when you consider designing your very own made to measure garden building.  And it’s not just smaller gardens that crave more space, larger gardens have tons of capacity to create a garden room that’s truly special!

Perhaps you’ve looked around at off-the-shelf garden room designs and they don’t quite fit the bill.   Are the windows and doors in the wrong position, is the size just not quite right, do you need more than one door, is the roof too high?  Well, all is not lost, we have the perfect solution and can bring your vision life.

Planning your Perfect Space with Tiger

First things first, you will need to make sure that the location is perfect.  If there’s an area in your garden that is unused or neglected and could be filled with a garden room, then this is a good place to start.    Other considerations… do you want your garden building in direct sunlight or more shaded?  Once it’s built it is staying put so make sure you find the perfect spot.

Once the area has been defined, you’ll need to measure the area and work out what the maximum footprint your garden building can be.  We always recommend leaving a minimum of one metre from your garden room to the perimeter of your garden to allow access for assembly and maintenance.

You’ll also need to consider the building design and aesthetics as well as roof style (a sloped roof such as an apex or pent roof is better for water drainage).

One last thing to mention when considering your own design and build…it’s a good idea to check the planning regulations for your area, as we’d hate for you to be caught out.

Now that the essential stuff is out of the way, we can talk about bringing your bespoke garden room to life.

Tiger Quality 

Here at Tiger, we pride ourselves on using only the highest grade, slow-grown and sustainably sourced European timber, cut to order in our very own Yorkshire sawmill.

We are extremely proud of our heritage and have been established since 1913. This means that we have substantial knowledge and expertise when it comes to designing and producing high quality garden buildings.

Our experience also means that we can build you a bespoke garden room if it needs extra features or a different size… we can do that.

You can add your own personality to your perfect space with one of our handcrafted garden buildings. Anything from just adding an extra window in one of our heritage designs, you need a low-roof version with a reduced height under 2.5m, to something completely original… it’s fine with us.

Being able to mill our own timber in our Yorkshire workshop, gives us a lot more flexibility - and more creativity!

Want more? We pre-treat our shed timber with TigerSkin®, a specially formulated wood preserver developed over many years – for a non-greasy weatherproof seal before it leaves the workshop. This gives every Tiger an extra layer of protection for up to 3 months after delivery. Still, we always recommend adding another coat of TigerSkin® once built and applying it every 12 months to keep your garden shed looking like new for many years.
