Autumn Activities for your Garden Room

Feel that? Yes, it’s just starting to get a little chillier as we move into September and look towards darker nights and bigger jumpers. While some people love autumn, others aren’t so keen to leave sunnier days behind.

But the good news is that there are plenty of activities and hobbies you can hunker down with in a garden room in autumn.

Let’s take a look at some autumnal ideas:

Reading Hub

In such a noisy world, it feels increasingly difficult to escape with a good book and not face any distractions. Turning your garden room into a reading snug is a great idea. You’ve got a calm, comfortable environment to read in, away from distractions. This is especially good if you need to read lots of content for your job, or if your children/relatives need a quiet spot to read too. The best part is leaving your phone in your house, so you can read completely uninterrupted like the good old days.

Home Gym

As it starts to get colder, the thought of having to lug yourself to the gym in the dark, freezing cold gets increasingly difficult. If you can turn your garden room into a home gym in the winter months then it’s much easier to lug yourself from the house to the garden instead. You can have the privacy to work out in peace in a cool and comfortable environment too. And you can choose which work-out music to listen to which is a bonus. You can save money on your gym subscription aswell!

Study Spot

For anyone in your household that’s headed back to school, university etc, making sure that there are places in your home where someone can really get their head down and study is important. A garden room study spot is the perfect opportunity to create an ideal environment for studying in – whether that’s the colour scheme you choose, the amount of natural lighting and making it as comfortable as possible. It’s also a way for you to know that the number of distractions will be limited and whoever needs to study can concentrate and focus properly.

This also means that a garden room can double up as an effective home-office. Depending on your work situation, if you work in an office-based role or someone close to you does, they’ll probably be working from home for a proportion of the week, so will need an appropriate and comfortable spot to work in. Being able to be productive and have somewhere where it’s easy to transition into ‘work-mode’ instead of home-mode on the sofa is important. A garden office you can shut the door on at the end of the day gives you that way to separate your work and home life which will have become increasingly difficult for people to do over the last 18 months.
