Quiet office, at-home gym or a space for the kids: Here’s why so many people are installing garden rooms right now

Need more space? A garden room may be exactly what you need.

Living in lockdown with a full house is no easy feat, especially with the kids home from school. The kitchen becomes a workspace, the living room a classroom, and the whole house is scattered with books, papers, lunch leftovers and stuff everyone’s too busy to put away.

When spending so much time in a home that wasn’t planned for it, boundaries between different facets of our lives can quickly become blurred. And it’s normal to become overwhelmed with it all.

Everyone needs their own space, whether it’s a quiet office, a fun playroom, an at-home gym or even an entertainment room. And this is why many are turning to garden rooms for their limited space solution.

Breathing space

Adding a garden room to your property can give you your own space away from the stress of an overcrowded house. With everyone home from work and school, it can be hard to steal away some time for yourself. A garden room is a great way to give you back this breathing space while also not being too far away from the children.

Increased value

Installing a garden room can increase the value of your property, especially if you invest in a well-built, long-lasting structure. Nua Garden Rooms is a stunning and impressive new collection just launched by established home builder, Buildwright.

“We’re a family business and high-quality, construction solutions have been our focus since 1949,” says Stephen Wright, managing director at Buildwright. “In 2018 we successfully launched BuildWright – a system that allows energy efficient, A-Rated homes to be constructed on site within weeks. But importantly, this speed and convenience comes without compromising your dream home.”

Now, their company have honed their skills into creating dreamy, garden rooms with that same forever-home mindset. Their new range is architecturally designed, comfortable and energy efficient, guaranteed to upvalue your home for a long time to come. “We design our units with a 100-year structural design life so our units are more than just a quick fix,” adds Stephen. “It’s a new space for you and your family to enjoy for many years to come.”

Versatility 

Finally, the best part about garden rooms is that they are completely adaptable to your needs. “Our range comes in a wide variety of sizes, materials and layouts,” says Stephen. “So you can design the space however you’d like, whether it’s an at-home gym, an office, a cooking space, an extra bathroom, a classroom, a playroom or an entertainment area.”

Their range comes in five standard sizes, ranging from 20 to 45 square metres, with various design options (inside and outside) to choose from, so you can find a room that best matches your home and property. You can also have a unit custom designed if your needs are that little more specific. Plus, they arrive practically complete, so in many cases you can start enjoying them the same day they’re delivered.

“Each of our garden rooms are custom-built in our factory in Monaghan, meaning we can keep a tight eye on quality,” ensures Stephen. “Also, many of our customers have a busy work or family life and the thought of a unit being dropped into place can be quite appealing.”


BuildWright are proud to launch a new collection of luxury, concrete garden rooms for the 2021 season. Manufactured with all the same quality materials and craftsmanship as a BuildWright A-rated home, Nua Garden Rooms are a stylish and fast solution for creating extra space. Built to last, our solution is a sound investment to complement and add value to your property. Find out more at their website or browse their full garden room range on Instagram.
