It's safe to say our world has been collectively turned upside down over the last 12 months. With the threat of a killer virus hanging over us, huge adjustments have been made to our everyday lives.
Having to spend a lot more time at home means we’ve had to adapt our usual routines. And now, more than ever, people are working from home, exercising at home, and educating and entertaining their children from home.
Realistically we are looking at spending the next few months, if not years, spending more time at home to minimise our contact with others. And while that isn't necessarily a bad thing, it does mean we might need to make a few changes.
Although things may not feel 'normal' for a while, a Smart Modular garden room can provide a long-term solution to some of the changes we are all adapting to.
Work from home
If you are going to be working from home for the foreseeable future, why not invest in your very own garden study?
This gives you a private space away from the buzz of a busy household to get into 'work mode', answer calls, participate in video meetings, speak to clients and work through your emails.
You can kit out your study room exactly how you want it, creating a productive environment that will make working from home as convenient as possible.
You still get that feeling of being 'in the study', but there's no risk of getting stuck in traffic at the end of the day. And let's be honest, will you really miss scraping ice off the windscreen on a cold winter's morning?
Gym it at home
With the gyms shutting and reopening and shutting again, many people have turned to exercising at home. Why not get your hands on some equipment and invest in your very own garden gym - an outdoor space dedicated to improving your physical health?
You'll no longer have to rely on gyms being open, plus it cuts out commute times and monthly fees. And there's no excuse not to show up for your workouts when everything you need is right outside your door.
Exercise is great for improving your mental health too, so if you're in a lockdown slump, it could be a great way to get your body and mind back on track.
If you're going to be spending more time at home, why not create a space that's dedicated to having fun?
You could use your garden room for any form of entertainment, whether that's a playroom for the children, a games room for the adults, or a cinema room for the whole family to enjoy.
You could even turn your garden room into your very own pub, complete with bar, big screen and pool table. The perfect place to entertain guests if you can't get to your local.
There are no limits on the design – any size, style or layout and a huge choice of finishes. Plus we can add in those extras, such as reinforced walls, floors or ceilings, outdoor lighting, decking and temperature control.
Why choose our garden rooms?
Garden rooms last a lifetime (and so do our structural guarantees), making them a great investment.
They are a brilliant way of creating extra space for work, hobbies or leisure without having to move house.
And with a Smart Modular garden room, you don't need to worry about lots of workmen in your home for weeks on end or having to put the project on hold if another lockdown kicks in.
That's because all our garden rooms are manufactured off-site and can be constructed on-site in as little as a week. Our teams work safely and efficiently to provide the perfect garden pod for you to enjoy however you like.
Smarter. Faster. Better.
