This is a large stunningly elegant example of a gazebo outdoor room positioned perfectly on a manicured lawn, with expansive sea vista, tables and chairs and blue sky background.
Having a garden room for chilling out or relaxing is quite different to having a garden shed, which is where most people tend to store their gardening tools and equipments. A garden room often doubles up as an outdoors home office space, a sleep-out (for overnight guests, or perhaps those unbearable teenagers) a hobby room, a place to sit and read in peace and quiet, or just a universal room for whatever purpose you decide.
A garden shed though is often a lot more rugged (and perhaps less cared for) than a garden room. With a shed, we don’t usually mind a few cobwebs here and there, or perhaps if the roof leaks a little, it doesn’t matter too much, whereas a garden room is usually thought of as a detached extension of your home, and so features like cobwebs and roof leaks are a distinct no-no.
In this gallery of 29 examples of garden rooms, you’ll find small cottages, gazebos, and even what look like sheds at first glance, and for all intents and purposes, a garden shed and a garden room can be the same building, it’s just that they are used for different purposes. We hope you enjoy this page and that it provides some inspiration for you to create and build your own backyard garden room.
