Garden room cladding: Adding Personality and Protection


Red cedar cladding: A Touch of Warmth and Sustainability


Red cedar cladding is very popular with our customers in The Cotswolds England, specifically Western Red Cedar, which is expensive, but it looks brilliant on any garden room its added to. Red cedar has a rich colour, warmth, its got a very distinctive red colour to the wood. It ages beautifully, gaining a silver-grey patina over time that blends well with natural surroundings. Studies show that cedar is also an eco-friendly choice; it has a lower environmental impact than other materials due to its long lifespan and biodegradability (source: Western Red Cedar Lumber Association).


UPVC Cladding: Durable and Low Maintenance


UPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) cladding offers excellent durability, and we would recommend it for any garden room, it lasts a very long period of time, and requires minimal maintenance often just a simple wash down with the right soapy water is all that is needed. It is resistant to weather, rot, and corrosion, making it a practical choice for garden rooms.

Furthermore, uPVC is available in a range of colours, so would you like a green upvc cladding?

 Would you like white upvc cladding?

Would you like blue upvc cladding? And also you can have upvc cladding and imitation wood colour, so it mimics the grain of real wood.   


Metal Cladding: Robust and Contemporary


Metal cladding, and as some garden room companies call it “powder coated metal sheet cladding” brings a modern, industrial aesthetic to garden rooms.  For example lets say you live in Gloucestershire which in England, and your on Google or Bing, and your looking for “local garden room companies”- you might want a garden office built, and you want it to be low maintenance you don’t have the time to be painting the building every year. So why not opt for metal cladding, the metal cladding could be made from steel, or it could made from aluminium which is more expensive yet it doesn’t rust. Aluminium cladding is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and recyclable, while steel cladding is renowned for its strength and longevity.


Siberian Larch Cladding


Siberian larch is a high-density softwood with a striking grain pattern.   Timber Focus).  


Thermowood Cladding: Thermally Enhanced Durability


Thermowood cladding undergoes a heat treatment process that enhances its durability, dimensional stability, and insulation properties. typically made from Scandinavian softwood, and offers a beautifully deep, rich colour.


How to Clad Your Garden Room


Cladding your garden room involves several stages. First, you need to select the right type of cladding that suits your budget, and the level of maintenance you’re willing to provide. Afterward, prepare your garden room’s exterior by removing any existing cladding, cleaning the surface, and making necessary repairs.


Once the surface is ready, you can start installing your chosen cladding. For materials like cedar or Siberian larch, this generally involves attaching the cladding to the exterior of your garden room using nails or screws, ensuring each plank overlaps with the next to create a watertight seal. For metal cladding, a framework may need to be created first to attach the metal sheets.


Keep in mind that the process may vary slightly depending on the type of cladding you select. Therefore, it’s recommended to consult with a professional or follow the specific instructions provided by the cladding manufacturer.

We have built many garden rooms, every building that we have constructed, is very high quality. Whether it’s a summerhouse, a huge log cabin, or a garden room, when you hire Kingsley to build a garden room, its always very high quality.

We build garden offices and rooms, in areas such as Oxfordshire, also we build summerhouses in Gloucestershire, and log cabins in Somerset. Each building we build, can have a “rubber roof” – our roofs last a long period of time, we are so confident that our roofs are high quality that we offer a guarantee on our roofs.

Plus, when you hire us, we can offer you many different exterior cladding options, for example, you might want grey composite cladding? You may want one of more expensive options, such as hardwood cladding? Such as oak cladding? You might want plastic cladding? Or some customers want metal sheet cladding. If you were to pick wooden cladding its important to know that this will require some maintenance, such as special oil applied, to help protect the wood. If you want an exterior cladding that’s less maintenance doesn’t require painting, then we would recommend opting for composite cladding. When you pick composite cladding, it can be made to look like real wood, so you can have the benefit of it looking like real wood, but it never needs to be painted.


We need an old garage demolished, to make way for our garden room, can you demolish our old garage and get rid of the waste for us?

At the end of your garden, might be an old garage, yet the roof may be leaking water, the windows frames are made from wood, and are rotten, plus the concrete slab may be cracked and broken, so now you want the whole garage demolished, slab broken up, and in its place a garden room built.

With some garden room companies in The Cotswolds, they may ask you to hire your own demolition company to demolish the old garage. However, when you hire Kingsley, we have worked with a demolition company for a long time, so they can offer you a competitive price, to demolish the garage and then once its demolished and removed, we can build the garden room.


Which areas of the Cotswolds do you build garden rooms?

We can build our luxury summerhouses, log cabins as well as gardens rooms, anywhere in The Cotswolds. We offer free quotes, so why not give us a ring?

How much there is a garden office cost in the Cotswolds?




A lot of people who run a business, work from home or are studying towards a qualification, want a garden office built. When the building has a lot of installation, soundproofing good quality doors, it can often offer quiet place, to complete your work. Plus, construction companies, such as our company, can adds optional extras, to make the room even more comfortable for you, such as underfloor heating or triple glazing, and triple glazing can make the room very quiet and a peaceful place.



We can make your summerhouse eco-friendly, for example our builders can use quality sheep’s wool insulation, we can also fit solar panels onto the roof of your summerhouse. This can help you to generate electric. We can also install windows and doors which are very energy efficient, we can also put fibreglass or panel insulation into your garden room to better insulate the building.

Also, we can put panels onto your roof, which heat the water, then our plumbers can install a kitchen into your summerhouse, so that you can have hot water that is generated from sunlight.

We can therefore build a summerhouse for you that eco-friendly.


What do we think is essential when having a garden room built?

When having a garden room constructed, it’s important that you can use the building in any weather. The weather here in Britain can change from freezing cold winters, to boiling hot summers, so it’s so important that you have a garden room, that can be heated and also cooled. Therefore, we would recommend picking a company that can build a summerhouse, which has air conditioning, which as underfloor heating, which has top quality insulation, such as sheep’s wall insulation, and also pick a company that can install electric heaters. Our company can install electric heaters, that can be switched on from your smartphone, so before you even step foot in your summerhouse, it can be nice and warm in the winter for you, because you could switch on from your smartphone in your kitchen for example.

We think it’s essential to have a high-quality roof, that’s why we can install a rubber roof, and we can offer a long guarantee on the rubber roof. Some companies as a roof to a summerhouse, but they don’t guarantee it, for example the roof could be made from tar felt, however the felt could come away from the board, which holds up the roof, and you could incur a leak in your summerhouse, that’s the say a small leak can often cause a huge amount of damage, it can water stained the plasterboard, it could mean that the building becomes an safety use, because you might have life electrics in the building, it might also mean that the wood starts to rot which holds up the side walls of the garden room.

This is why it’s so important that when you pick a company to build your summerhouse, that they offer a guarantee on the roof. We can add a fibreglass roof, we could add a rubber roof, we can also add pitched roof and add a quality roof tile, such as well slate, we also offer a guarantee on our roofs.


With rising energy costs, why not have solar panels fitted to the roof?

For many households across the United Kingdom, they might have a shock, when they open their energy bill, that’s to say, it might be a lot more than they anticipated if they haven’t got a smart meter, therefore they might have a bill that might be particularly high.

So therefore, when a homeowner is adding a new room, that is a garden room, a lot of people will be concerned over how much it will cost to heat the room and called the room in the winter. We can add solar panels to the roof for you, we can also add panels to your roof which can seat the water as well, to have hot water which is generated through sunlight, this can make your garden room much more eco-friendly.

Therefore, if you’re worried about energy costs, and how much it would cost to heat your garden room or to cool your garden room, then why not have solar panels and also panels added to the roof which can seat the water?

A green roof can help with the bees

Let’s say that you live in a large Victorian house in Gloucestershire, you might not want your garden room to be the centre of attention in your garden, you might want it to blend in more with the surroundings, so why not have a green roof added?

Therefore, you could have a garden office constructed, green roof on the roof, and you can grow just grass, grow plants to grow flowers on the roof. This can help your garden room to blend more into the greenery which surrounds your garden room.

You could also if you wanted to, grow wildflowers on the roof, so this is good for the insects and bees, because the bees can collect nectar from flowers, so we can build a green roof where you can grow a large amount of wildflowers.


If you live near busy roads why not have soundproofing

if your house and garden is situated next to a busy road, then you might want us to add soundproofing to the walls and ceiling of your garden office. If the road is particularly loud, that’s because you want a garden office close the road, and soundproofing won’t totally eliminate the road noise, but what soundproofing can do this to help reduce some of the noise. So if you’re planning on working within your garden office, and you want it to be quieter within the building, then we would recommend soundproofing. Our builders can add soundproofing behind the plasterboard, adding soundproofing doesn’t drastically increase the cost of the garden room, so we would highly recommend opting for soundproofing.


We can offer you hundreds of different types of cladding

we can offer you hundreds of different types of cladding, these can change the hall appearance of the garden building. For example, you might want a dark wood cladding such as mahogany, you might want the whole building to be olive-green and made from metal sheets? Alternatively, you might want composite cladding, which means that you can save a large amount of time, that’s because composite doesn’t need to be painted, so you won’t have to buy varnishes, oils or paints and you can save a huge amount of time because the composite cladding never need painting.


Make sure that the garden room company offer you a guarantee on the roof

it’s really important, that whichever garden room company that you hire in the Cotswolds to build your summerhouse, that the offer a guarantee on the roof. We can offer a long guarantee all our roofs, because we install quality rubber roofs.


Would you like decking built at the same time

Perhaps she wants to use the inside of the garden room as a place to work, but perhaps you want decking built around the garden room, so that afterwork you have somewhere to sit on your patio table and chairs and enjoy a nice bottle of champagne?

Perhaps therefore you want to hire us to also build composite decking in front of your garden room, we can build decking in front of your summerhouse, which makes is a great place to eat outdoors, to enjoy a bottle of wine or simply to eat some nice cheese and crackers in the sunshine. You might want to puts a parasol on your decking, you might want table and chairs so that you have somewhere where you can sit out and enjoy the summer weather. We can build composite or timber decking in front of your summerhouse for affordable price.

Because we have built a large number of summerhouses, we can build our summerhouses fast, yet even though our summerhouses are built fast they are still very high quality.

We can build a summerhouse for you, with prices starting from just £18,000, it’s clear to see why so many people within the Cotswolds hire us to build their summerhouses.


We have many joiners which work for us

because we have so many joiners, which work Kingsley, we are able to build summerhouses quickly. So even though our summerhouses are bespoke, there are not flatpack, we are still able to build them quickly because we have so many joiners that work for us. Our joiners can build the structural timbers, they can build a wooden doors and wooden windows, they can also build the frame also which holds your decking. Therefore, we are able to build our summerhouses quickly because we have so many joiners which works for us.

We may not offer the cheapest prices in the Cotswolds, however what our company can guarantee, is that every summerhouse which we build is built to last.

Also, we purchase quality windows and doors, also we purchase quality roofing, and we can also supply quality solar panels and air-conditioning units.

We build our summerhouses anywhere the Cotswolds, we always aim to build your summerhouse as fast as we can. Most summerhouses are built in less than three weeks, we therefore build quality summerhouses but we build them fast.


What is a garden office?

A garden office, is simply a garden building, that use as a place to work, therefore the homeowner often needs a lot of electrical power sockets, two power printers’ laptops and scanners. Often the room also needs to be designed so that it can be used 365 days of the year if necessary, so it needs to be built so that it can be used in any weather. So even when the building is covered in frost outside, you need the ability to be able to work in the room so it is nice and warm. Equally in the summer, these buildings can get very warm, you do need air conditioning as well. Therefore, there needs to be an emphasis on the customer being able to control the temperature within the room to make you comfortable to work in. We therefore recommend quality air conditioning quality heaters.


So how much does a garden office cost?

The cost does vary very much on which company you hire, some businesses focus on building low-cost summerhouses, however businesses such as ours, focus on building bespoke garden rooms, where we come in make the customer and discuss all the options, to make sure that they get a garden room that they really want. Therefore, they pick the exterior cladding, the brand of air conditioning unit and whether they want decking and also other optional extras as well. Prices start from as low as £18,000, however the more expensive garden offices can be up to £70,000. We build these right across the Cotswolds, for example we are frequently building these buildings in Gloucestershire, we are building them for homeowners in Somerset, as well as also in Bath.


The cost of one of our garden office is therefore dependent on the following

The size of the garden office

we can build a garden office to any dimensions that you would like, for example we can build one just large enough to fit a desk in, or we can build a huge garden office, which is so large it could fit seven desks within it. We don’t just build our garden buildings for residential customers, we can also build them the businesses, so for example a person in the Cotswolds might the business that restores and sells classic cars, you might therefore need a wooden building constructed as where you meet your customers, we can build wooden buildings for businesses as well.

The cost of the garden office is therefore very much dependent on how large the building is, also whether landscaping work is required before we can start building. For example, in some gardens we might need to level the ground using a large excavator, we might need to remove soil, we might need to have a company come into grind a tree stump, so in its place we can then start to build a garden office.

The cost is therefore dependent on the size of the building.


Which cladding would you like your garden office?

As you probably already know hardwood’s are very expensive, for example you could oak, mahogany, cladding, hardwood cladding is very expensive, yet it can make a garden room look brilliant. For example, within the roof, we can put say 10 spotlights, that is LED spotlights, when these are switched on during the evening or night, it can illuminate the garden room, they can make it look brilliant. However, hardwood is very expensive, so if you want your garden office to be built at a lower cost, we would recommend thinking about composite cladding, or to have steel sheet cladding. Steel sheet cladding comes in different colours, you could even have the metal sheets a green colour.


Air conditioning

Air conditioning units vary in price depending on how powerful they are and also the manufacturer, however if you are using your garden office, as a place to work during the peak of summer, we would recommend getting a conditioning installed. You haven’t got to go ringing around, air conditioning installers within the Cotswolds, to install a conditioning in your garden room, because we can offer you a quote to install the air conditioning ourselves. We work with a company, which installs our air-conditioning into the garden rooms that we build in the Cotswolds. Therefore even when it’s boiling hot outside, and people are putting on suncream because it is so warm outside, you can still be in your garden office completing your work, in a cool room, because it’s cool because you have purchased a quality air conditioning unit from us.


Underfloor heating

It seems like here in Britain, that our summers are very short, therefore we are back into winter and it’s freezing cold, everything is covered in ice, and it can be so-called that you might not even feel your fingertips if you spent too long outside. However, if you want a garden office built with underfloor heating, sheep’s wall insulation, electric heaters, then we can build this for you. We can build an insulated garden room for you, with prices starting from just £18,000


Insulated garden rooms

We can offer you different types of insulation, for example we can offer you fibreglass insulation, insulation made from sheep’s wool, we can also offer panel insulation. It’s really important, that whichever company builds your summerhouse, that they properly insulated the room.

The problem that some people have is, they purchase a summerhouse in the summer and it’s built let’s say in July when normally the weather is nice and warm here in Britain. However, come the winter, the owner of the summerhouse, might quickly learn that, the summerhouses freezing inside, and as soon as the heaters are switched off, the room just gets too cold to be in. This is why it’s so important to make sure that the garden office is insulated, we would recommend adding sheep’s wool into the walls to better insulated the summerhouse.

We work from home- how could a garden office help us?




Millions more people now work from home, and a lot of people prefer to work from home, yet sometimes there’s a slight problem, that is the person may not have a large enough home to work comfortably. They be resting the laptop on their lap while working from the sofa, which is often uncomfortable.

Or they get into their work, they may have a super-productive morning, yet then the kitchen table has to be cleared, laptop, paperwork and stationery all cleared away to make way for dinner- does this sound familiar?

Well, if so, why not purchase a garden office from us? What’s at the end of your garden right now? Perhaps an old shed, that’s falling apart?


Perhaps a greenhouse that hasn’t grown anything for years?

Perhaps just a lot of overgrown brambles, and a compost bin? Well, why not make much better use out of that space, why not bring in our builders, in next to no time, they will be busy bees, they will clear the area, dragging that old garden shed, and throwing it into a skip, they can level the area, by bringing in a micro-digger, they will make the area ready for a garden room to be built.


Often doesn’t cost as much as say a property extension

If you were to call various builders in Bristol, to obtain a quote for a loft conversion or a property extension, often the quotes that come back from the builders will be far higher than what we would quote to build a garden office for you. Then you have to think about all the inconvenience that loft conversion can cause, all that noise, from the builders while they convert your loft.

What’s great about a garden office is that it be built very quickly our team, plus, its often much less, often thousands of pounds less than what a loft conversion would cost.

Our team of builders can build the whole building in a short space of time


We can build our garden offices very quickly- how can we do this?

We have built so many garden offices, that we can now build the concrete base, the structural timbers, the roof, then we install the doors and the windows in a very short space of time. We also have a team of carpenters, which means that we can build a garden office sometimes quicker than other local garden room companies. Our team travel the entire country building garden rooms, when we offer you a free quote, what we can also do, is estimate how long it will take us to build the garden office.

Sometimes we have to take longer to build the garden office, this is sometimes due to us having to wait for the bi-folding doors to be made by our suppliers. However, most of the time, we build a garden office from start to finish in under 3 weeks, therefore build our garden offices very quickly. With that we never compromise at all on quality, so every part the building is high quality.


Our builders use top quality building materials

From the concrete we mix for the concrete foundations, to the timbers we use to hold the doors, and windows in place, every part of the building is quality. We buy our building materials, from Travis Perkins, which supply us with top quality building materials. We can offer to install quality Velux roof windows, we can also install composite cladding, made by quality manufacturers.


How much does it cost to have a garden office built?

There are so many garden room companies to pick from, there’s literally hundreds of businesses in the city of Bristol that specialise in building garden rooms- so how does the customer know which one to pick.

Well, we think its crucial that the building is insulated, otherwise its going be freezing inside the building in the winter. Then there’s the roof, you really do need a long-lasting roof, if the roof doesn’t last that long, and the tar felt starts to peel away from the boarding, well the whole building will get damp, start to leak, timbers will rot, and the whole building will seem a waste of money- so our best advice is make sure whichever company you hire, that the building is well built, and that the roofs top quality with a guarantee.

As we all know, it rains all the time here in Bristol, well, not literally but it can feel that way, so because the majority of the building will be constructed from timber, its so crucial that the inside timbers are not wet, or they will rot in next to no time, the plasterboard will get wet, the room will start to smell damp.

So, this is why we build roofs, which are made from EPDM, this is one big sheet of rubber, with plastic facia boards, we support the whole roof then using top quality timbers. This means that whether we are building a log cabin, that’s used as a holiday home, or a large air-conditioned garden office, we always build a quality roof onto our garden offices, with prices starting from just 18k, its clear to see why so many homeowners, when they want a garden office built in Bristol, England call us.


We want the garden office to be eco-friendly, do you build eco-friendly garden offices?

Yes, we most definitely do, we can build an eco-friendly garden office, which has solar panels on the roof, which can collect rain water, also, we can add sheep’s wool to the walls for insulation, we can also use reclaimed timbers, such as reclaimed wooden joists, we have bought from a local reclamation yard.

We can also build garden rooms, which have composite cladding, some manufacturers which manufacturer composite cladding here in the United Kingdom, use recycled plastics in the construction of the composite cladding, this means that composite cladding can be very eco friendly because recycled plastics are used to construct the cladding.

I start working from home soon, how long will it take to get a garden office built from start to finish?

This does depend on how large the garden office is, yet we can normally build a garden office from start to finish in under one month, however sometimes it might take a bit longer, sometimes if we have to wait for suppliers to supply us with the bi-folding doors, air conditioning unit, or solar panels which are being made for a garden room. Sometimes therefore there are delays due to our suppliers, yet with that said, the vast majority of the garden offices we construct, are built from start to finish, in less than 4 weeks.


How durable are your garden rooms?

Our garden rooms are very durable, this is because, we use top quality wood, cladding, doors, windows and roofs.

How secure are these garden offices can they be locked up?

Yes, the bi-folding doors are the same quality and type of bi-folding doors that are used within your home. This means the doors will have locks and the building can be locked up easily. The windows also have security locks.

We need a shed / garage demolished to make way for the garden room, can you take care of getting the garage demolished?

Yes, often in Bristol, the homeowner will have a garage / shed demolished, and sometimes reuse the concrete foundations to build the garden room on. The homeowner then sometimes asks us to make 25% of the garden room as a storage room, where folding ladders, paint tins, and bikes can be stored.

What this allows is for the homeowner to obtain a garden room, yet also have a room for storing items. For example, you may have a garage, yet it might not be storing that much, perhaps a few mountain bikes?

Well, why not make much better use out of that space, have us demolish your garage, then we can inspect the concrete foundations, sometimes the concrete foundations can be reused, and on those foundations, we can build the garden room.

We can dispose of your old garage or shed and we can place the waste into skips for you.


Our garden is quite boggy can you raise the whole building off the floor?

Sometimes a homeowner will have a garden that’s quite boggy, this means that that section of the garden may well be saturated with water for the majority of the time, so we can raise the garden room off the ground, putting the building on stilts, then we can build steps using composite up to the garden room.

We can build different types of foundations for your garden room, we can offer ground screws, to build a concrete base, or to elevate the whole building off the ground. We can visit your garden, in Bristol, and we can recommend whether its best to have concrete base, ground screws or whether we can elevate the building off the ground using posts.

We want a durable and long-lasting roof, which type of roof do you add to your garden offices?

Most of the garden offices we build, we would say over 70% have what’s called at “EPDM” roof, this is a durable type of roof, which our roofers can add to your summerhouse quickly.


We live by a noisy and busy road, are you able to add sound proofing?

Yes, we can, our builders can not only insulate your garden office, but we also offer to add sound proofing as well. You may want sound proofing added if you live near a busy road, or perhaps you plan on playing a musical instrument within the room, such as the drums?

Its important to know that sound proofing although it can help to dampen the noise heard within the room, or help to reduce the amount of noise leaving the room, it doesn’t completely eliminate the sound either coming in or leaving the garden room. So, you do have to keep this in mind, that’s because if you do live near a busy road, say where a lot of buses, heavy trucks, and vans pass all day, then even with sound proofing you may still hear road noise.

Therefore, this is why its crucial to think for sometime as to where you want your garden office built in your garden, you should pick a quiet place, where there is a lot of sunlight, and also away from trees, as falling tree branches will severely damage the building.


What type of doors do you offer, we want as much light to come into the garden room as possible?

We can add good quality aluminium frame bi-folding doors, we can offer triple glazing or double glazing. Perhaps you have a south facing garden? If you have a south facing garden, then with bi-folding doors, this can let a lot of light into the summerhouse, but what we would recommend is that there is blinds added to the doors, we can offer bi-folding doors, that is aluminium frame bi-folding doors, that have blinds within the glass, this brilliant at allowing you to select how much light you want to come into your garden office.

If you want a garden office, which is offered at a lower price, we can install upvc French doors, this can reduce the cost of the summerhouse by a lot.


Peace and quiet

What are you working on today, an Excel document, or are you designing something in Adobe Photoshop, or are you simply writing an e-mail, well, if so, often workers like somewhere quiet to work, somewhere they can concentrate on their work, without the distractions like “turn that television down, can’t you see, I am trying to work here!”- so the solution is to hire us to build a garden office, and as we are a well known garden room company, you be obtaining a well-built, a quality, garden office that can be built very quickly.

Each day as you look out of your kitchen window, you will see our builders working hard, they work fast and they build our garden rooms in a short period of time, so each day you will see your garden office becoming closer to completion, and in a short period of time, you will have a great place to go and work.


Meet your clients

Perhaps you are a hairdresser? Or maybe a self-employed accountant, or you may well be a mortgage advisor, yet you fed up with paying rent for a commercial building, and now you a large garden office, complete with nice kitchen and also a bathroom. We can build such a garden office for you, you could have comfortable chairs, sofa, a meeting table, a good place to meet your customers, and then you haven’t got meet your customers in your house, and you haven’t got to drive to a office to meet your customers. This is why so self-employed people all Bristol, are hiring our builders to build a garden office.


How will I keep the garden office warm in the winter?

We can offer you many different types of insulations, for example, would you like fibreglass insulation? Sheep’s wools insulation? Spray foam insulation? Would you like panel insulation? When we build your garden office we can offer you different types of insulation, if you want a quality insulation, that’s also eco-friendly, then we would recommend opting for sheep’s wools insulation.

We can place the sheep’s wool insulation behind the plasterboard walls, its offers insulation, the vast majority of the garden offices we build, the customers want panel insulation, this is a very good high-quality insulation, it’s a sandwich, in the centre is good quality insulating foam, then on the out layer, you have a thin reflective coating, which looks like kitchen foil, it is very good at insulating the room.

But what is really important, whichever company you hire, is that you get good quality windows and doors, and no gaps left between the door frame,

Garden Bar Shed Guide

Garden bar sheds are becoming increasingly popular for homeowners who want to create a unique and welcoming space in their backyards. These multi-purpose structures provide the perfect setting for entertaining friends, hosting family gatherings, or simply relaxing with a cold drink on a warm day. 

One reason for their rising popularity is the wide range of styles, sizes, and materials available to suit any garden or personal preference. From rustic wooden designs to sleek, modern metal constructions, there’s a garden bar shed for everyone. According to a recent study, the global garden shed market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% between 2021 and 2026, highlighting the growing demand for these versatile outdoor buildings.

Garden Bar Sheds Aren’t Just for Summer 

While many people associate garden bar sheds with summer BBQs and pool parties, these versatile structures can be enjoyed all year round.

During the colder months, a well-designed garden bar shed can become a cozy retreat, complete with heating options such as wood-burning stoves or electric heaters. You could even host a winter-themed party or watch your favorite sports in the comfort of your garden bar. A recent survey found that 67% of respondents spent more time in their garden bar sheds during the winter months compared to the summer 

Fully Insulated Garden Bar Sheds

The key to enjoying your garden bar shed year-round is insulation. A well-insulated garden bar shed will keep you warm during winter and cool during summer, providing the ideal environment for relaxation and entertainment. Insulation also helps to reduce noise, creating a more peaceful and private space.

There are various insulation materials available, such as fiberglass, mineral wool, and spray foam. Each material has its pros and cons, but all are effective in ensuring your garden bar shed remains comfortable throughout the year. In a recent study, it was found that 85% of garden bar shed owners opted for some form of insulation, with fiberglass being the most popular choice (Source: [Insulation Study Link]).

Additionally, owning a garden bar shed allows you to save money by avoiding the often-inflated prices of drinks at commercial establishments. According to a report, the average cost of a pint of beer in the UK is £3.94, with prices continuing to rise (Source: [Beer Price Report Link]).
