Four Fun Creative Uses For Your Garden Room This Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner, and with all the hustle and bustle that the season brings, it can be easy to overlook your garden room. However, it can be an invaluable resource at this time of year. Here are just some of the ways it can be used to be an integral part of your home this Christmas.

A solitary sanctuary

The run-up to Christmas is a busy time for us all, particularly if you have children. You may be seeing more of your friends and extended family, which can bring happiness but also just get too much at times. If you are lucky enough to have an insulated garden room, you have a ready-made retreat where you can get away from it all for an hour or two.

Take a good page-turning novel and a cosy blanket, or curl up with your favourite Christmas film and a glass of something suitably festive and leave the world behind for a while.

Accommodation for guests

If you are having guests to stay for Christmas, then you may find yourself short of sleeping space. A garden building that is well insulated and has a heat source can be used for a temporary extra bedroom.

During the daytime, it can double up as an extra seating and hangout space, particularly if you have guests from multiple generations who all want to watch their own choice of TV or listen to their favourite music, or just chill out and have some breathing room.

A Yuletide arts and crafts centre

Christmas is a wonderful time to explore arts and crafts, whether with the kids or as your own hobby. Turn your garden room into a festive crafts centre for making decorations such as wreaths, paper chains, and Christmas tree ornaments.

If you are a dedicated crafter, then you could turn your garden room into a Santa’s workshop and get busy creating some special handmade gifts for your nearest and dearest.

Another great idea if you find yourself with a houseful of children to entertain is to set up a dedicated cake decorating room. Bake some festive treats such as gingerbread men, Yule logs, Christmas cakes and mince pies, and gather some icing and frosting tools, plus an array of sweet treats and sugar decorations and have a fun creative time.

A dedicated present store

If your children do not use your garden room often, keep it under lock and key during the run up to Christmas and use it to store up your stash of presents out of the way of prying eyes. It can also be a convenient place to get all your wrapping done away from the clutter and distraction of the main house.

You can even use the peace and quiet to get your Christmas cards written, order your festive food shopping, and all those other extra chores that tend to crop up at this time of the year.
