How to Design Your Perfect Log Cabin

Are you looking for some cabinspiration?

Many people believe that the inevitable approach of winter means that gardens suddenly become off-limits. While the sun loungers may be hidden away from your garden for the foreseeable future, it doesn’t mean you have to hide too.

Log Cabins are a great way to open up your garden year-round. Looking for a cosy garden retreat? An outdoor gym, office, or living room? A Log Cabin is a versatile option for excellent results!

Here are some ideas we love to turn your cabin into your castle:

A luxurious living room

Want a home [not too far] away from home? A Log Cabin is a great way of adding another room to your house, without an extension! Think comfy sofas, fluffy rugs, candles, wall art… anything your heart desires. It’s a chance to really make the space your own!

Top tip: Use quality paints to decorate your cabin, so it can be beautiful inside and out. These paints not only look good, but provide excellent protection for your building.

Inspiration can come from everywhere, and your garden is no exception. A Log Cabin makes a great home office! Creating a calm environment away from home is perfect for encouraging productivity.

Raise the bar on drinking at home


Where’s the best place to get a drink? Your bar! This customer turned their Amur Log Cabin into a functioning bar, complete with spirit pourers, stools and plenty of beverages. Going out can be expensive, so here’s to a few nights out, in! Cheers!

Top tip: Drink responsibly! 

Work out in style


There’s big money in gyms. 1 in 7 of us own a gym membership, and their profit depends on you not actually going. We know the excuses: you don’t have the time, your gym is too far, parking is a nightmare… well imagine working out, in comfort and privacy, from your own back garden! For around the price of an annual membership, or even less, you could kit out a log cabin to turn it into a fully functioning gymnasium.

Top tip: Budget conscious? Check out sites like eBay or Gumtree for cheap used gym equipment. Freecycle is a great place to bag a freebie, as long as you can pick up the item yourself.

Entertainment room


Are you a poker pro? Pool hustler? Gamer? A Log Cabin can become the ideal place to pursue hobbies where you won’t be disturbed! Combine the essentials with some related decor for your own personalised retreat.

Top tip: Turn a Log Cabin into a Man Cave or a She Shed as an incredible gift for a partner. 

Make use of outdoor space


Adding a deck to your cabin is a perfect way to bridge the gap between outdoors and indoors. Treat yourself to some crisp autumn air with a toasty hot chocolate and some fleecy blankets to snuggle up with. An outdoor heater is a perfect investment to see you through the colder winter nights.

Top tip: Autumn is a great time to stargaze – ideal to do from your deck! Check out BBC Universe for some top tips.
