What can you use your Garden room/Modular room for?

7 Oct 2023

So... you have decided to take a leap of faith and purchase a garden room but have found yourself asking the question; just what can I use it for? Will it be a good investment and purchase for me? What if I never use it and it gathers dust?

We are here to help show you some of the potential ways in which you can use your garden room so that you can maximise all of the incredible benefits of having one.

Here we have created a list of some different ways in which you can make the most of your garden room and use it as much as you can. In this blog we will be looking at modular rooms in particular.

A modular garden room is basically a miniature flat situated within your garden. Ours are called Snugs and we love all of the different ways that these can be used.

Staff accommodation

Let’s just say you have a business and a bit of land. Let’s also say that you have staff that come out to work for you and it’s a little bit out of the way for people to travel to for earlier starts to the working day.

Modular rooms would allow you to have accommodation for your staff on-site, so they do not need to travel. Each modular room is basically a miniature flat so there is a fully functional kitchen space, bedroom, living space and en-suite. Making them perfect places for your staff to stay.


This is a brilliant use for your modular room because it is a good way to bring in some extra income to your home whilst also putting your garden room to good use. It could become a successful business for you, so it is definitely something worth considering.

Extra space for your family

Another wonderful use for your modular room is an extra bedroom for your child who may have outgrown their old room, or just want some more space. It could also be great for a child who has come home after graduating university.

This room will allow them to have some kind of independence whilst still living within the family home. It’s a brilliant transitional space for your growing child.

A guest bedroom

A modular garden room could be great as a guest bedroom if your house is a little on the smaller side. This will also allow your guests a little bit more freedom as there is a kitchen space within the unit.

Go ahead, invite all of your friends and family to stay and see your excellent garden room.

Wedding venue guest accommodation

So picture this, you use your space as a wedding venue for people to hire out on their big days, but you don’t have anywhere to sleep guests so you have to recommend hotels for them to stay in. This is a problem that could very easily be solved with the help of some of our modular garden rooms.

Depending on the space that you have available, you can purchase several to help house as many guests as possible. This will also eventually mean more money in your pocket because you won’t have to turn people away for accommodation. With this option, guests will also have the full experience of your property. What more could you ask for?
