A garden room extension is deemed as a semi-glazed building with a tiled roof rather than glass – and is also known as Sunroom or Solarium. However, conservatories, orangeries and pool-houses all constitute as garden room extensions – but are built using varying features which make them unique to garden rooms.
How to furnish a garden room
Garden room extensions can provide living spaces for a variety of room options, including a second living room, dining room, study space, rehearsal space or a home office. If you’re looking to create more living space for your home, a garden room extension can be anything to suit your needs – so whether you’re kitting it out with comfy sofas and chairs, a sturdy office desk or a dining room table for family dinners, a garden room is bound to add an extra piece of joy to your home.
Garden room or conservatory?
As an extension of your home or business, a Garden Room or sunroom is very similar in appearance to a conservatory, despite most often being glazed in the glass with a solid tiled roof. Whether you go for a more traditional design or contemporary garden room extensions, like a glazed extension, a garden room will make a wonderful addition to your home – giving you more space and enabling you and your family to spend more time enjoying your garden.
Does a garden room need planning permission?
Garden room extensions or sunrooms do not require planning permission, as long as they fall within permitted development guidelines. These guidelines include not exceeding the maximum eaves height of 2.5m, it must not contain sleeping accommodation and must be single storey. However, there are other guidelines which need to be adhered to, including not featuring a balcony or veranda and not building on more than half of the land associated with the house, as for this, you would need full planning permission.
