10 Alternative Uses For Your Backyard Studio

If you’re finding your house is a bit cramped and full of stuff you need, but just can’t get rid of, then it could be time to consider purchasing a backyard studio. Studios are the cost-effective storage solution. However, they can be used for much more than just a storage space. Here are 10 uses for a studio you may not have considered:

  1. Home office

When you need your own private space outside of the house to completely concentrate on work, then a studio is often the perfect solution. A studio offers enough space to set up a desk and a computer. You can work distraction free, while never having to leave your own property.

  1. Music studio

For those who need a place to record and practice their music, but can’t quite afford all that time in an expensive private studio, then creating your own is the next best option.
Simply add a bit of insulation and soundproofing and you’re good to go. A studio is a great way to get the band out of the house and provides a private place to practice or record music, without disturbing the neighbours.

  1. Photographer’s studio

For those who are a bit more creative, you often need a place to call your own to complete your work. For photographers, you often need a quiet location to take photographs of your subjects. Having a studio can be the perfect solution. You can fit in all your equipment to ensure you will be able to complete your work interruption free. You could even design it to make sure there is less interference from natural light.
FT Architects created an enviable photography studio in Japan, with the design considering the impact natural light would have on the interior.

  1. Gardeners workshop

For those who love gardening, it’s a necessity to have a place to store all your tools. A studio gives you enough space to store and display your tools. It doesn’t just have to be storage – studios also give you enough space to transform it into a workshop. Simply insert a workbench, a few shelves, and hooks and you’ve got a fully functioning workshop. If need be, you can even have it function as a mini greenhouse for seeds and cuttings. You can completely transform your backyard by turning your studio into a workshop.

  1. Yoga retreat

Sometimes you just need to destress and take a break from your busy, hectic lifestyle. Unfortunately, yoga studios are often expensive or are in an inconvenient location. To overcome this, simply turn your backyard studio into the ultimate yoga retreat.

Leave the floor empty to give plenty of room to practice yoga and meditation. You can decorate the studio with items such as plants or candles which will help you to relax more. Ensure the studio is properly insulated so you are able to use your own private yoga studio all year round.

For adults, a studio can turn your backyard into the ultimate entertainment area. As well as electronic games, you can also fit gaming tables such as pool or table tennis. Your guests are sure to be entertained with a backyard gaming room.
