Garden rooms adding value to your home

Outdoor space is becoming more valuable for U.K homebuyers with 64% of UK residents claiming they wouldn’t purchase a property without an outdoor area. Research conducted by the find-a-tradesperson platform, Rated People, concludes that following the last year of lockdowns and reduced social contact, there has been an exponential rise in the need for an outdoor space to entertain family and friends making a garden more desirable than ever. 

Garden rooms, built for year-round use, have gained popularity over the last year; latest research showing they can add 5-15% to the value of your home. 

How could a bespoke garden room from the Green Room Company add value to your home?

1. By increasing floor space

Many people look to house extensions to add valuable floor space to their properties, these however are often huge projects that can be overwhelming, disruptive and at times too expensive for some homeowners to complete to their desired standard. A garden room from the Green Room Company can solve this. A garden room will give you your desired additional floor space that you may require for an office, gym, entertainment space, playroom or studio in a less disruptive, costly and time-consuming manner. A house extension can often take over a year to complete whereas our garden rooms can be installed in 10 days, completed to your specifications ready for you to use straight away.

2. Attract fitness fans or hobbyists

A bespoke garden gym from the Green Room Company is an excellent investment in both your home and your personal health. With many people unsure about renewing their gym memberships post pandemic, a garden gym could attract many prospective buyers. Fitness conscious prospective buyers will see the benefit of a dedicated, uninterrupted private space that would allow them to focus on achieving their fitness goals. 

Hobbyists, meanwhile, will appreciate having a space away from their home to store their equipment and practise their craft. Having this sense of detachment from their home with a quiet area to practise what they love, will mean this bespoke garden room becomes their favourite space.

3. Wow Factor

Our bespoke stylish garden rooms are beautiful additions to your outside space. By buying a garden room from the Green Room Company, you will generate increased interest in buyers if you ever decide to sell your house. This increase in viewings will lead to a quicker sale and the asking price is often met due to potential buyers not wanting to miss out.

4. Attract business owners and people who work from home 

There has been a large increase in remote working, with the figure still remaining as high as 60% in 2021. The problem many people find with working at home is the inability to create a clear separation between home life and work life. For example, research has shown bedroom offices contribute to decreased sleep quality in the long term. It’s no wonder then that a dedicated private office space has become an essential feature for prospective buyers. By adding a garden office, it allows you or prospective buyers to gain a sense of normal routine and that ever important physical and mental distance between home and work life.

5. Garden Appeal

Having an attractive garden space has always increased the value of your home - tidy and well-designed gardens can add a great deal of value. Outdoor living trends in recent times have become increasingly popular, people are now using their gardens as a place to relax or entertain guests. The Green Room Company can build a bespoke design that fits around your garden layout to make your garden stand head and shoulders above the rest. All our garden rooms are insulated so you can make the most of your garden all year round, not just when the British weather allows.

6. Add Value

Our bespoke garden rooms generally return up to 1.5x their initial installation costs meaning when the time comes to sell, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will be getting a good return on investment. Furthermore, a high quality garden room from Green Room Company can boost the value of your home by 5% - 15% along with factoring in the significant convenience value as well. There has never been a better time to add a garden room to your property.

The Priceless value of outdoor space.

A study from the Rated People Home Improvement Trends Report revealed how much outside space has had a positive effect on mental health over the past year. Well over half (57%) of the UK said that having a garden helped them get through the pandemic, with 44% also admitting that having a well-designed outdoor area enabled them to see their family or friends. 

In the study, 39% of respondents also stated that they had become more interested in gardening as a result of the pandemic; this has led to 47% of people saying that they plan to transform their garden in some way this year. The mental benefit gained by having well designed garden spaces is leading to a shift in the way people view the outside spaces of their property. By adding a Green Room Company garden room to your outside space, you will be keeping your property on trend and catching the eye of any prospective buyers in the market; leading to an increased value placed upon your home.
