Garden studios or Garden rooms are the new game-changing home improvement. The benefits of garden studios can be enormous and guaranteed to have a positive impact on your home life and your property’s value. Recent research in the UK has indicated that a garden studio can increase your properties value by around 5% according to Yopa, which in most cases will cover the Garden Buildings cost. In addition, it boosts the saleability of your home.
Heritage Garden Studios offer a range of six garden studio designs that are highly customisable, if you choose a garden building from us, rest assured that there is never a compromise on quality and you can always expect excellence as standard. Find out more about our Garden studio range.
There are loads of ways that a garden studio can benefit you and your family. If you’re currently unsure how one of our studios could make a difference to your home life, we have a list of just some of the benefits a garden studio can bring to you.
One of the biggest challenges homeowners face is finding enough space for everything and having room for what they want in their homes.
A home extension used to be the most popular way to increase living space in your home, however in recent years garden studios have grown in popularity and become one of the most popular forms of home improvement.
Garden studios allow you to create your own personal haven. Home extensions adapt the property you already have and require planning permission and building regulations make it a complex and lengthy process. Garden studios do not usually require planning permission and can be installed under permitted development rules. Check out more detail here.
So, if you need more room in your home but you don’t want the disruption of building an extension, investing in a garden room or garden studio is one of the best ways to add space and value to your property.
Working from home has become very popular, however having your desk set up on the dining room table or even the back bedroom is not great for a pleasant or private working environment.
Moving your office space outside your home allows you to better separate your work and home life and be able to approach your work without family distractions.
What could be better than having the keys to your very own office just a few steps away in the Garden? Not only does this reduce your commute time it also saves hundreds of pounds each year on transport and parking costs. Plus there’s the huge environmental benefit, win, win!
Therefore, if work from home, are self-employed, or have a creative hobby that’s taking up too much room in your house, your own garden office might be the solution for your lifestyle.
With home extensions, the installation process is typically a long one. After you are finally granted planning permission, construction can take months and is often very disruptive. However, this is not the case when you increase your living space in your back garden. Installation in most cases can be completed within a week.
This is a much shorter time than any other home extension and provides you with a brand new living environment. Our design process is relatively simple too and is mainly handled by our site engineers. The team will come and look at your garden space and see what size building and style is best suited for you, you can book your free site survey here!

Even if you do not have a large garden, there is still the option to have a garden studio, as long as it does not take up more than 50% of your overall garden space. You can discuss this further with our site surveyors and check out your options
The beauty of a Garden Studio is that it separates you from your home giving you much more privacy.
If you’re wanting to make a yoga retreat or a room suited for your hobbies, privacy is important. Being connected to your home, but just in another room then privacy isn’t as achievable.
Being separated allows you to make more noise, so if you want to practice your music, watch a film or have a gathering with friends without disturbing anyone in the main house a garden studio provides the perfect solution.
