10 Reasons to Have a Summer House in Your Garden

Summer houses are becoming more and more popular in the UK, as people are looking for ways to make the most of their gardens during the warmer months. Not only do they provide a great place to sit and entertain guests, but they can also be used as a home office or spare bedroom. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of having a summer house in your garden.

1: A Garden Office Space

Since the outbreak of coronavirus in early 2020, more and more people have been working from home. This has led to an increase in demand for summer houses, as they provide the perfect space for a home office. If you don’t have a spare room in your house, a summer house is a great way to create the extra space you need for home working.

Many employers are now encouraging staff to work from home and offering a more flexible way of working, so having a summer house in your garden could become a permanent fixture for many people.

2: Spare guest bedroom

If you have friends or family who come to stay, a summer house is the perfect place for them to sleep. They will be able to enjoy the outdoors and the surroundings of your garden, without being in your way.

3: Space for entertaining

A summer house can be the perfect space for entertaining guests in your garden, as it provides a sheltered area for them to sit. If you have a barbecue or outdoor party, a summer house is the perfect place for your guests to relax. They will be able to enjoy the outdoors while being protected from the sun or rain.

4: A Classier alternative to a potting shed

If you are an avid gardener and would like a garden building to act as both a place to entertain and also a more up market place to act as your gardening hub, then a summer house could be the answer. They are often more spacious than potting sheds.

5: All year round use

The summer houses / garden rooms available at Dalton and Sons are built using SIPs (structural insulated panels) so this means that they are excellent at controlling the heat due to being fully insulated they hold the heat in winter and stay cooler in summer so in reality these “summer houses” can be used all year round.

6: Children's playroom

A summer house makes a great playroom for the children, as it gives them a space to play in without being under your feet. It also means that you can keep an eye on them while they are playing in the garden.

7: A garden bar area

Garden bars have become extremely popular over the past decade, with people wanting to make the most of their outdoor space. A summer house is the perfect place to set up a garden bar, as it will provide shelter for you and your guests. You can be as creative as you like with garden bars too, give it a cool name! Give it a theme, there are some fantastic examples of garden bars which people in the UK have created.

A garden bar is the perfect accompaniment to a BBQ area, great for entertaining and parties!

8: A Workshop area

Do you have a hobby that requires a specific workshop or craft room? Wood turning, furniture restoration, model making, the options are endless. If you don’t have the space in your house or garage, a summer house would make the perfect workshop. You can easily add power and light to a summer house, so it will be just like having a workshop in your garden.

9: Art Studios

Summer houses make perfect art studios too, as they provide a light and airy space to work in. If you are an artist or painter, a summer house would be the ideal place to set up your studio. You can also use it as a place to display your artwork, so you can have your own private gallery in your garden.

10: Garden gym or fitness area

If you are a fitness enthusiast and simply can’t get enough of the gym, then why not create your own home gym in your garden? A summer house would be the perfect place to set up your own gym, as it will provide you with a sheltered and private space to work out in. You can also use it as a place to store your fitness equipment, so it doesn’t have to take up space in your house.
