Garden Rooms for Kids – how to utilise your space for children

Persuading your kids to do their homework can be a chore at the best of times, but what if you could make it a much more pleasant and relaxing experience for everyone?

Here at Bridge Timber, we specialise in creating bespoke garden rooms and we think that a garden room can be a fantastic environment for your children to enjoy.

Let’s look at a few ways that you can use a garden room space for your family:

Creative Zone

Finding interesting and fun hobbies that your children are interested in is the first step. The second step is having an environment that they can enjoy activities in and nurture their interests. A garden room is the perfect place to explore new hobbies.

Your child might have started to play a new instrument and they want a space away from everyone else to practice. They might be an avid bookworm and want a quiet place to curl up with a new story. There are so many different hobbies that are perfectly complemented with a quiet place to concentrate.

Homework Club

One of the biggest advantages of a garden room for kids is giving them a distraction-free, quiet, tranquil place to use some brain-power and get their homework done.

There’s plenty of room for you to keep an eye on them as well, just to make sure they don’t get their phone out mid-homework. Basically, it gives kids a minimalist, clutter-free place to concentrate. After all, it can be difficult to do work in their bedroom or living room, as they usually associate those rooms with relaxation – having a set-aside place to study can get them in the zone.


You could get really creative with your garden room and turn it into a space to try out lots of different and imaginative fun ideas. If you’re stuck for things to do in the school holidays with your kids, you could turn your garden room into a futuristic spaceship, or maybe into a magical medieval kingdom? Get your kids involved and turn your room into whatever takes your fancy.

Location: Sleepover

Organising a sleepover for your kids can be stressful. You just know that you’re going to have to tell your children to quieten down about 10 times during the night and find yourself only getting about 15 minutes sleep. Why not turn your garden room into a cosy, snug for your children and their friends to sleep in? They won’t be distracting to the rest of the household and you and the cat can get some much needed rest.

Important Chats

It’s vital to know what’s going on with your children and their lives. Constant communication is so crucial because it means that you can help solve problems together and monitor your kid’s general wellbeing. It might not always be helpful or appropriate to bring up issues in front of your other children or partner – your child might feel more comfortable having a chat somewhere else. This is where a garden room can be a safe space to discuss any problems or issues your child might be having and tackle them together.
