Sometimes there’s just not enough space in the house. Are you nodding in agreement? Well maybe it’s time for an Aarons Workshop! With over 20 years of experience, we know how to transform backyards. So here are our five ultimate workshop ideas to turn your backyard into something wonderful for many years to come.
Empty your nest
Kids can definitely be a handful at times, especially when they get into their teens! Adolescence is tough, as it’s a time full of many changes and important decisions. Most of the time, kids just need a little space so that they can let off some steam. So maybe a teenage retreat is the answer? Much like young kids with a cubby, a backyard workshop used as a bedroom provides teenagers with a place to call their own. There are 18 standard sizes, with or without a verandah – or even add an ensuite. Setting up a backyard bedroom is a win-win; your kids get a taste of independence and their own personal space while you get a bit of peace and quiet – and less mess!
Lights, Camera, Action!
Everyone loves a movie. They’re the perfect way to relax with your loved ones. So why not bring some of that movie magic home and turn a workshop into a home theatre? Encourage family time by having movie nights complete with popcorn and ice-creams. Make it fun and turn the verandah and entrance into a red carpet experience. Add a sofa bed and it doesn’t even matter if you fall asleep, or it’s a great spot to host friends over the weekend!
Consider yourself an artist? A workshop could serve as a fantastic studio/gallery for your art or place to write music and practice on your chosen instruments. Get started on new paintings while your others hang on the walls as inspiration. Art and music are great for therapy – making a studio/workshop the perfect place to relieve stress after a tough day at the office.
A weekend hangout
Save money on nights out by building an amazing rumpus/workshop to chill-out in. Set up a lounge area with a TV, pool table, dart board, or even a bar. Your backyard will become the go-to destination for all of your friends! That next grand final – make it at your house. The limits are endless when it comes to making your workshop a great party area.
Your own home office
One of the major downsides of working from home is finding the right work/life balance. By having an office in your backyard, you are able to easily distinguish work from home and become more productive in the process. Make your workshop more functional with a kitchenette for lunch breaks, and a sofa for those long conference calls!
These are just some of the possibilities an Aarons workshop can provide. The only limit is your imagination! All of our workshops are designed to meet council building permit regulations. We even have an in-house team who can take care of the entire building permit process for you! Ask one of our stores for a free site inspection today and make the transformation of your backyard a stress-free experience.
