More and more of us are expanding our homes into our gardens with outdoor offices, Summer houses with a twist, and suped-up sheds. Just like the spare room can be transformed into your new favourite space, so too can a room at the bottom of the garden. While you’re mixing up your inside/outside living spaces, you can discover a clever way to bring the outside in, too.
We’ve found 29 inspirational garden rooms on Instagram that will show you how to add a haven in your outside space, from studios made for art or music to sleek structures perfect for working from home. There’s plenty of decor inspiration too – bunting and kitsch curtains, naturally – plus ways to repurpose existing structures, from climbing walls and gypsy caravans to chicken coops transformed into cocktail bars – yes, really! Ahead, browse our favourite offerings from home renovators and visionaries, and start dreaming of your little piece of home outdoors.
