When you start a family, personal space goes straight out the window. It’s a given that once babies start walking, things start breaking, people start clashing. You don’t need to move to a bigger house to have more space. You just need to ask yourself whether or not you’re utilising all your available space.
Garden studios provide a great solution to space problems both for you and the kids at any stage of your lives.
The Outdoor Play Area
Kids need their space to be kids. This space needs to be perfect for running around, playing hide-and-seek and all other sorts of mischief and mayhem.
This garden studio features a cozy space for the adults to relax in, while the kids play outside. Play equipment fitted onto the exterior can also offer the kids a bit of variety. Rest assured noise and mess stays outside the house. Playing outdoors in the sun is healthy for toddlers, and it’s much safer to fall over on soft grass than it is to bump into doorknobs and other hard surfaces around the house.
This space is also perfect for kid’s parties. Say goodbye to cramped indoor parties. All the entertaining can be done outside, and there will be no need to rearrange the house to accommodate parents and their kids.
Of course, some kids prefer to make a little bit of indoor mess, especially when all their energy has been spent up from running around all day. However, this doesn’t mean that they have to take over your garden studio.
Every kid wants a rumpus room, so this is a way they can be as carefree as they want, without ruining your couches or carpets. They can be the kings of their castle, and you can still be the king of yours.
The Teen Cave
As the kids get older and the teen years roll by, space away from parents become important, but it also works both ways. A garden studio can provide teenagers with a space for their hobbies and activities outside the house can be a good way of establishing ‘boundaries’. This allows them to play music as loud as they want, while you enjoy freedom from the hassles of teenage life.
Allow them to make space their own, where they can create, decorate, and just feel comfortable, free from the nagging influence of parental control. While you have a few friends over in the house, they can have their friends over outside, where no one clashes and there’s no drama. Everyone is happy!
The Quiet Zone
Establishing a quiet zone is a great idea for when the kids’ homework starts to build up and the house holds too many distractions.
Furnish your garden studio with a comfy couch, study desk and bookshelf, ensuring there’s lots of natural light to induce creativity. If not for study, it would also be good for meditation, reading or any activity which requires a bit of quiet time.
The Hobby Room
A garden studio can be the perfect setting for setting up your home entertainment system. Add a TV or projector, sound system, dark shutters, a comfortable couch and some popcorn and you have yourself a movie theatre!
This is also a great space to be social with the family. Set up table tennis, a pool table or any other activities the whole family can participate in.
The Poolside Studio
Who doesn’t love a poolside picnic?
A garden studio with large windows and a spacious veranda gives your family the tropical holiday feeling without even leaving the house! After a long afternoon of swimming, you can relax without bringing water and dirty footprints into the house.
