A Wood Burning Stove

If you have a beautiful cabin or wooden garden room, a wood-burning stove will complement this perfectly in winter.

You can choose from different types of fuel, and there are even carbon-neutral options if you’re conscious about sustainable living.If you fancy getting a wood burner installed in your garden room this winter, please make sure you get a professional installation for safety reasons.

Christmas decorations

What better way to make your garden building look cosy this winter than by decorating it for the festive season. There are many ways you can do this, depending on the size of your garden room and what you typically use it for. If it’s used as an office space, for example, you might want to keep it relatively toned down with a bit of tinsel here and there and a mini tree. If, however, your garden room is an extension of your family home, then why not go all out and bring in a Christmas tree and decorations galore! If you use your garden room as a playroom, you could even consider a full-on Santa’s grotto theme which would delight children of all ages.

Home cinema

Winter is all about cosying up indoors with your nearest and dearest. What better way to do this than with a home cinema? Install a large TV or mini projector and stock up on popcorn and snacks. Get some comfy sofas or chairs in there, with plenty of cosy blankets, beanbags and cushions, and you’ll have the perfect room for date nights or family nights in. It certainly beats sitting on the living room sofa!

Install a bar

It’s simply too cold now to be venturing out for a night out on the town! Although summer cocktails in the garden are also off the agenda until next year, there’s no reason why you can’t make the most of your garden room by installing a bar. You can create your very own pub experience, but with drinks costing a fraction of the price. The great thing about a home bar is that you can tailor it to suit your own preferences, right down to the drinks, style, lighting and music! You’ll be the envy of all your friends when you invite them over for drinks. With the party season on the way, what better way to make the most of your garden room?

Soft furnishings

Investing in soft furnishings for your garden room will help give it a much cosier, comfier feel and also help to make it feel warmer. If you have large patio doors on your garden room, consider investing in some decent lined curtains to keep in the warmth and create a luxurious feel. Perhaps consider scattering cushions, blankets and beanbags to make the place look really cosy and comfy. Rugs are a nice touch that provides a homely feel. Consider opting for warm cosy colours, suited to the time of year, such as reds and greens. This will help to give a festive feel when combined with your Christmas decorations yet remain appropriate after the festive period. Hopefully, these winter upgrades for your garden room have given you some inspiration for how to upgrade your garden building this winter and make the most of it during the colder months.
