The Best Garden Rooms For Small Gardens

There are several small garden room choices that might grab your attention. First thing first, however, you need to decide why you want one of these beauties. Once you’ve decided, take a look at the options below. 

1. Modern-style Classic Office 

Are you working from home and in need of office space? If so, this compact garden office will be perfect for the job. It has lots of storage space, can be used for multiple purposes and will fit quite comfortably into your small backyard. 

If you want it to be a guest room, it’s easy to convert. Need a workshop, no problem. Now you’re probably wondering what is a garden room since it seems to have so many functions. 

The simple answer is that a garden house or room is a small semi-permanent building usually made from wood. These buildings can act as storage spaces like a shed, a workshop, a modern outdoor office or even a detached guest suite. The limit is your imagination. 

If you turn it into an office, you can install electricity, wifi and as many desks and bookcases as required. Make it yours! If you’re still on the fence, take a look at these pros and cons.

Classic office


  • Small enough to fit in a tiny garden
  • Easy to personalise
  • Great for separating work from home
  • Offers a quiet sanctuary to get your job done
  • Made from CE-certified wood
  • Long-lasting
  • No planning permission required


  • Takes up gardening space
  • Pricy to buy


2. Shed Turned Workshop

If you have a constant problem with garden tools and other outdoor supplies laying around, then this small garden shed might be just what you need. 

It can be used as both a practical garden shed for storing your garden supplies as well as a workshop for the more hands-on kind of person. If you like to build stuff in your free time, invest in this stunning beauty. It will spare you a lot of drama with the rest of the family. 

If you have kids, you can also store their bicycles and any other outdoor toys here. You can also easily free up some space in your garage. No more parking the car outside because you have work to do inside. Create a space that’s only yours. 

Do you have garden furniture that needs to be stored in winter? No problem. Just fold them up and place them in your shed. The best part, this modern design doesn’t take away anything from your garden aesthetics. It’s also very easy to incorporate. Not convinced? Take a look at these pros and cons.

Shed to workshop

3. Playhouse

If you have kids, you will know what a mess they can make. They have this ability to turn a room upside down in less than 5 seconds, am I right? Fortunately, with the Playhouse Natural Wonder, you’ll be able to separate your living area from their playroom. 

This playhouse allows them to make as big a mess as they please. No need to pick up the toys every day. Cleaning once a week will do the trick. If you like, you can even use this opportunity to teach your kids to clean up after themselves. 

Simply give them the playhouse to take care of. Let them pick up the toys, sweep the floor and place chairs back where they belong. Drawings on the wall? No problem. Nobody will be going in there anyway and you can redecorate when the kids are older. 



  • The kids will have the freedom to play
  • No messy bedrooms
  • Tidy house
  • Once the kids are grown, turn the playhouse into an outdoor library or office
  • Can be used as storage in winter
  • No planning permissions required


  • Takes up quite a bit of space in the backyard
  • It’s another room to keep clean
  • It’s difficult to supervise the kids all the time
