Everyone needs a ‘Me’ space. It’s important for people to have a place they can run off to and shut themselves away for an hour or two whilst they recuperate. This way you can emerge bright and shiny to face the kids, work, chores, and other aspects of your busy lives. I believe I may have an answer to your troubles: A Garden Studio. These garden studios are great as they are put up in your garden (and the majority don’t require planning permission) and you can use then for whatever you wish. Companies like Garden Spaces offer ideas on the variety of uses of a garden studio. I’m going to list some ways that a garden studio may well be what you’ve been waiting for.
This picture gives you an idea of what your garden studio might look like.
If you’re a book lover, then why not use your new studio as a library. Books are notorious for cluttering up homes, especially if you’re a bibliophile (a lover and collector of books) and so if you moved your wonderful collection into the studio, with a nice comfy armchair, a small table with a lamp and space for a cup of tea then you have yourself a book lover’s heaven.
Once you have your library space – declare it off limits from any disruptive family members looking to spoil your ‘Me’ time. Also, stop the kids with jammy fingers from ruining all your lovely dust jackets.
If reading is too much of a quiet endeavour for you then why not turn your studio into a garden gym. These make perfect gyms as they are out of the way of the house and so you can make as much noise as possible. Plus with the big doors, you’ll never have to worry about your gym beginning to smell stale. Another bonus is that garden studios have electricity and so you can bring in a wall mounted TV or a music system and exercise away to your favourite TV programme or music album. Just make sure that if you do settle for a gym, make sure your testosterone filled son doesn’t hog it all day by lifting weights in front of the mirror with his shirt off.
Having a home gym will also prove more cost effective than continuing to pay the extortionate prices that gyms charge for their membership.
Cinemas are expensive, plus you have to drive into town or get a bus and it all becomes one big hassle. What if you could bring the cinema experience to your house, or your garden to be more specific? For the same reason as the gym, the cinema idea is a good fit for the studio as it means the noise can be cranked up and not bother anyone. For example, who isn’t dying to see Gravity back on the big screen? Watching at home on your normal lounge TV just seems boring now. Buy a couple of comfortable leather reclining armchairs, a big TV with sound system, and a popcorn machine and voila, you have your very own cinema. It’s time to be the envy of your friends.
Alone time is great, however it would be a good idea to have a garden studio that everyone can make use of. Maybe set up a schedule where certain people can use it a t certain times if the studio proves too popular. There are hundreds of different uses for a garden studio and so you just have to find one that is great for you and your family.
Do your research and find the perfect studio for you as they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Make sure you spend the time to find the perfect one.
