Garden Art Room

Why Garden Art Rooms are the Ideal Creative Spaces

Whatever the nature of your artistic endeavours, you will require space to work in. But commercial premises can be costly. 

The expense of renting or buying a studio could be prohibitive for a professional artist let alone a hobbyist.

Little wonder that many creatives have little choice but to use a room in their home. However, working from home can be less than ideal and many artists simply don’t benefit from sufficient space to convert into a studio.

A garden room could be the perfect solution to a difficult dilemma. If you would love to have an art studio or need one for your work, here’s why a garden room should make its way onto your wish list.

Work-life balance

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso

A good work-life balance is important for your health and happiness. Sadly, that balance is hard to achieve if you are working from home. It is almost impossible to separate your working life from your home life if all you do is walk from one room into another. You will be distracted by phone calls and family matters, and you will struggle to achieve the right creative mindset.

You may only need to take a few steps to a garden art room, but it will feel like a dedicated space and quite possibly a world away from your family life. Just the act of leaving the house and entering your garden room will ensure that your mindset and mood change. Your garden room will make it much easier for you to separate your work life from the rest of your life. You will save yourself from constant interruptions and distractions, leaving you free to get truly creative.

A building tailored to your needs

“An artist’s studio should be a small space because small rooms discipline the mind and large ones distract it.” – Leonardo Da Vinci

Garden rooms can be stunning art studios. Of course, they can be any size of your choosing but will generally be modestly sized spaces. Your studio can be perfectly tailored to your needs and feature the layout, equipment and facilities that you need. You could incorporate an area for cleaning your tools, a shower room that enables you to freshen up or a kitchen area for refreshments.

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

Benefit from natural light

Light is a thing that cannot be reproduced but must be represented by something else – by color. – Paul Cezanne

Your garden art studio will flood with natural light to give you the perfect space in which to produce your finest work. Whether you are a painter, sculptor, illustrator or calligrapher, you can design the ideal environment for your needs. Natural light will bring your colours to life and energize your creativity.

Be inspired by nature

“Great art picks up where nature ends.” – Marc Chagall

The beauty of your garden could become your artistic muse. You will benefit from a constant source of inspiration and one that changes across the seasons. In harmony with nature, your mood will be lifted as you capture the essence of natural world.

Save time

“A good artist has less time than ideas.” – Martin Kippenberger

With your art studio on your doorstep, you can spend less time travelling and more time working. There will be no traffic jams to tackle when travelling to your workspace and you won’t need to worry about parking or transporting materials.

Enhance the value of your property

Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art. – Andy Warhol

A garden room is a significant investment but one that should enhance the value of your home. You won’t need to spend your hard earned cash on renting a studio and should your priorities change, the building can be repurposed in the future to become whatever you need it to be.

At home but not your home

“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” – Twyla Tharp

Your garden room art studio will be on your doorstep and yet it will be a separate and defined space. There is no better way to achieve the right work-life balance, to create the ideal studio, to save time and to be inspired by the world around you than to invest in a garden art studio.
