5 small garden summerhouse interior ideas
When you don’t have much space to spare, a summerhouse can be just the right size to become a cosy reading nook. A couple of plump seats, blankets and a coffee table are all you need to set up the space as a den for exploring fictional worlds while still enjoying the great outdoors. You could even incorporate a mini bookshelf if space allows.
The natural world has always been a source of inspiration for painters, writers and musicians. So if you’re in a creative rut, then why not set up your summer house as an arts studio? Here you can immerse yourself in the beauty of your garden and carve out a quiet, dedicated space for your next masterpiece to unfold.
A garden room
Whether it’s a place to display plants, or a room which has a conservatory-like feel to it, garden rooms are simply that – a room that is built in your garden, and is separate from the main house. A couple of sofas and some large planters can give a garden room a tranquil, welcoming feel that really works well with biophilic design.
Recent events have completely transformed the way we work. In fact, many of us find that working from home is now a permanent arrangement. A small summerhouse is just big enough to house a simple home office space. It is a great way to distance yourself from your main dwelling to create a clearly defined and separate space to focus on your work in a more peaceful, motivating setting.
Contrary to their name, summerhouses can actually be used all year round. As long as you provide the appropriate furnishings, insulation and heating, your summerhouse will be evergreen! If you have young kids, a few lights and decorations can transform the space depending on the season. Summerhouses can become everything from Santa’s Grotto in winter to a witch’s den at Halloween. So, play around, have fun and engage with the imagination of your children. Summerhouses really be a fun place to be at all times of the year.
