How To Set Up A Hobby Space In Your Garden Room

In the bright and beautiful summertime, bespoke garden rooms are a great place to lounge and relax when the weather is delightfully warm and you have time to put your feet up and take a load off of your mind.

However, even when the days are less than stellar, as can often happen in Britain regardless of the season, a garden room often is a great place to relax, and one of the best ways to take advantage of your building throughout the year is to create a hobby room or craft room.

A well-designed creative space can be the perfect getaway to allow you to focus on what you want to do in life most, and the first step to creating one is ensuring all of the tools you need fit in the space.

You will need a workbench or table to spread your materials out as well as a set of shelves to keep your materials organised and in one logical place. It also helps if you want to have a place to entertain in summer but a hobby room in winter.

Outside of these two sections, think about what other pieces of furniture or equipment you need and divide your room space into zones to ensure you have enough.

For example, if you are a model maker, you may want space for your tools, space for your extra parts, space for your reference books and so on.

Chairs are another factor, and whilst you may have dining and entertainment furniture, you really need a chair with wheels to move around the different workstations. You are often quite engrossed in your work and so a chair that can help you get to the different parts of your project is essential.

Finally, do not forget the lighting. Try to not rely on only one intensity of light but have a desk lamp and a ceiling light that does not shine too harshly so as to cause eyestrain.
