Garden Rooms provide a calm sanctuary from our busy lifestyles
10 November 2017
As a market leader at the quality end of the market, we blogged recently about the difference between a conservatory and an orangery. Another form of timber building that David Salisbury specialises in – and that combines the best of both of these types of extensions – is a garden room.
A timber built garden room, whether painted or in oak, with its substantial proportion of windows and doors, provides a light and airy space to escape the rigours of the day, or provides valuable additional space to relax in the evening. Take a look at our Case Studies to see some more examples of this type of award-winning building extension that we design and manufacture.
And with the nights now closing in and the days getting shorter, the change of season also provides some spectacular views of the natural environment to take in.
That aside, the demands of today’s modern living mean we are getting busier all the time, so there’s never been a more important reason to take a little time out.
But previous wisdom has always held that the advances of technology would make us less busy, not more so. Much has been written about this but in reality what has changed?
It often seems that we are needing more and more time to update and interact with our media devices. The average person now has 5 social media accounts and spends at least one hour 40 minutes browsing these channels every day. Whilst we are big advocates of social media here at David Salisbury – we like the quick and easy formats for sharing great photography and company news via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and so on – we also think it important that there is time in the day for relaxation and enjoyment, however limited these opportunities might be.
Of course, entertaining is another use of your garden room and they provide a spectacular environment at night, as these photos here shows.
So, relax, sit back and think of reading your favourite book – or updating your social media if that’s your preferred form of relaxation(!) – from the comfort of your David Salisbury garden room, whilst taking in the autumnal views.
