Whereas once we just had wooden sheds or summerhouses, there is now an increasing trend of "Garden rooms". These tend to be larger structures than a traditional summerhouse and are designed for more specific uses such as office space.

A good garden room will be of a substantial size, and will often come with a space for storing tools and garden equipment separate from the main room area.

They are now widely used for office space with the advent of more and more people working from home. Unlike the traditional summerhouse they now come equipped with power to provide lighting, heating and power sockets to enable computers and other office equipment to be plugged in.

Modern garden rooms (which is also known as  Moderne tuinkamer in Dutch language) serve a variety of purposes. They make great extra storage spaces for a myriad of items. They can be used as your personal space where you can indulge in woodworking or other hobbies.

There are numerous garden rooms available today. It is important to choose the correct garden room space which will fit all your needs. Knowing your needs, as well as the purpose of the garden room, will help you determine what accessories or add-ons the shed should come with. 

If you will be constantly moving heavy equipment in and out of your garden room, it will be very helpful to get a ramp. For rooms which will be used for storage purposes, additional shelving will help you maximize your space. Ventilation is also necessary for garden rooms.
