Garden office tops survey of garden building uses

An interesting study by Crown Pavilions (an example pictured above) reveals the popularity and financial importance of garden offices. It found that at the top 10 things people use their garden room for is as a garden office, with playroom second, and guesthouse third, followed by man-cave/she-shed, music room, bar, yoga room, cinema room, beauty studio, and in 10th spot pool house.

Breaking down those figures, more than two thirds of people between 35 and 44 mostly use their garden room for an office, and more than a quarter of people over 65 use their garden room for a bar.

Overall, the survey indicates that one in eight people have some sort of garden room. A third used them as garden offices and more than half run some sort of business from them, for example as beauty studios or personal training spaces as well as home offices.

In terms of a garden office's effect on a property's value, they estimate it as anything up to 16% depending on its size, location, privacy and extra features. "There are endless ways to make the most out of your garden. Building a dedicated area for your hobbies, a tranquil work environment, a fully functional home gym, yoga studio, playhouse or garden office, can add real value to your home”, said Luke Dejahang, CEO & Co-founder of Crown Pavilions.
