Whilst it doesn’t yet feel quite cold enough for winter, there is no doubting the season’s arrival as rivers across the country burst their banks and the sun begins its descent ever earlier as we unavoidably inch towards the longest night. Once Christmas is over and 2016 has been welcomed in, getting outside to soak up the sun’s scant offering of rays will be a distinctly unappealing prospect for all but the hardiest of outdoor lovers and owners of very lively dogs.
So why not use the long winter’s evenings to plan for longer, sunnier days, having resolved this New Year that 2016 will be the year that you get outside more. A very pleasant way in which you can keep your resolution on track, is to create an outdoor room in the garden. A place to retreat to, whatever the weather, whether to exercise, work or simply relax: whichever use you choose for your Garden Escape, you will be bathed in natural light and blessed with views of nature as you enjoy being inside, outside.
If you need some inspiration, take a look at some of our clients’ unbelievable and beautiful garden rooms. They are an eclectic lot, with a wide range of uses from offices and garden gyms to art studios and therapy suites. Some have designed their spaces to serve a variety of purposes and others have dedicated theirs to pure relaxation. So, whatever it is that you like to do, do it outside in a beautiful space.
