Blending seamlessly with our client’s existing home, this stunning painted garden room in central Bath was a hugely rewarding project for everyone involved.
Responding to the brief to ensure we brought a taste of the beautiful exterior to the interior of this new solid wood extension, a garden room was the obvious design choice.
Bespoke Garden Room Design
Reviewing some of the photography of this project above, it is clear that the designer Karen Bell, now company Sales and Marketing Director, fulfilled the client’s requirements perfectly.
The quality of the build and finish is outstanding and still looks fantastic 6 years on. We always recommend David Salisbury and feel our conservatory is the most successful part of our extensive refurbishment.Client’s Comment
The design is a simple one but, as is often the case, simplicity can be the key to success.
Karen commented: “It is always nice to work with clients that have a clear idea of how they intend to use their space. That isn’t always the case, but the brief to bring a feeling of their garden indoors was a feature well suited to our timber glazed garden rooms.”
That said, this project wasn’t without its challenges. This property is a Listed Building, in a sensitive area of Bath, so the design process involved careful thought and planning, as well as some negotiation in terms of the final design itself.
Here at David Salisbury, we have vast experience of adding orangeries or garden rooms to Listed Buildings. The overarching aim is to ensure that the design complements the host property and not take away from what is already there.
As our customer kindly noted: “Listed Consent was a doddle. We had already tried two designs for a conservatory on our listed house in Bath and then briefed David Salisbury. This design was exactly what we were looking for and there were lots of clever touches which have made the addition our favourite part of the house. We opted for a part solid roof and extra wide window sills so the room can house many plants in winter and becomes an indoor garden/dining room. The quality of the build and finish is outstanding, and still looks fantastic 6 years on. We always recommend David Salisbury and feel our conservatory is the most successful part of our extensive refurbishment.”
The Pennant Stone paint (one from the wide range of colour available in the David Salisbury palette) provides a lovely contemporary feel to this structure and works perfectly in harmony with the period home and scenic gardens.
Our clients now enjoy this additional space for relaxed breakfasts or more formal lunches and dinners, whilst taking in the views of their beautiful gardens. In fact, it looks like their cat is just as at home in their new surroundings!
