    You don’t need to sacrifice your spare bedroom, squeeze into a cramped corner or work at your dining table when your office is a spacious garden retreat with the features and storage you need.
    It’s hard to do your best work in a busy office or with your family around you. Peace is guaranteed with a garden retreat, leaving you to focus on the task at hand without interruptions
    When working at home you will be constantly reminded of the other things you could be doing. Remove yourself physically and mentally from temptation by relocating to a garden retreat.

Connect with nature

Research has shown that working in a green environment can enhance your cognitive performance by as much as 100%. Affording you a view of your flowers, shrubs, trees and lawn, your garden office will improve both your mood and your productivity.

Stylish and practical by design

You may already benefit from a workspace at home but if this was hastily organised at short notice during the pandemic, it’s probably less than ideal.
We will craft a stunning garden office that will provide the ideal working environment while elevating your property. You can choose the perfect size, layout and features for your needs together with stylish interior finishes that complement your personal taste.

Equipped with your chosen fittings, heated, airconditioned and boasting a lighting scheme to suit, your garden office will improve every aspect of your working life. You can truly make it your own, ensuring that you can leave behind the usual faceless, generic workspaces and spend your valuable time in an office that’s tailored to you.

Your garden office will considerably enhance your lifestyle for as long as you use it and when it is time to move on, it will increase the curb appeal and value of your home. A garden room is an investment in your quality of life and your property. Better still, our versatile retreats are future-proof as they can be repurposed as your life evolves.

    You can watch over your kids when you are working from home, removing the need for childcare and saving you a fortune. Better still, your little ones will love your garden retreat.
    There will be no need to leave your dog alone in the house during working hours as you will be right there with them and able to walk them when you or they need a break.
    Flexible working hours can transform your life but are of little use when you are miles away from home. Your garden office will enable you to grab the precious time that you need and when you need it most.
    A garden office is a significant investment but one that you can quickly recoup when you no longer incur travelling expenses. In any case, you can’t put a price on the time you gain by working from home.

It’s easier than you think!

With Kennedy Garden Retreats it’s much easier than you think to create a better work-life balance.

Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Plan your perfect home office

It’s important that your garden office suits the available space at your property but also that it can accommodate everything you need to work effectively and in comfort. Will your space be a small garden office pod or something much larger? Our stunning garden retreats are available in a variety of sizes and so you can choose an office that will be the perfect fit in every way. There are a few things to think about before settling on the size of your building. Your garden office won’t work well for you if it is too small, and it doesn’t make sense to take up more of your outside space than you need to. The key considerations for your garden office are:

  • Furniture
    what furnishings will you require? You will probably need a desk and a chair for your garden office studio. But should you also provide seating for colleagues or visitors? Would it be useful to include a table and chairs for hosting meetings?
  • Storage
    How many files, boxes and books will be stored in your office? Will you be storing any equipment? Your office should feature somewhere to tidy away stationery. Garden office storage can make or break your space.
  • Tech
    consider that your contemporary garden office must accommodate your PC or laptop, your printer and a shredder. Is there any further equipment that you will be using?
  • Power
    you will need a garden office with electricity. How many sockets will you require and where should they be located?
  • Heating and air conditioning
    your space would be the ideal place to work if it is warm in winter and the coolest of cool garden offices in the summer. Our insulated garden offices help you to keep heating costs down.
  • Broadband
    how will you extend broadband to your garden office? You can do this via powerline networking, ethernet cable or WiFi PtP.
  • Toilet
    should your garden office feature a toilet or are you happy to pop back to your house?
  • Kitchenette
    would you like to make your cuppas in the office, and would a fridge be a major boon?
  • Versatility
    to maximise the potential of your garden retreat and its impact on the value of your property, design a versatile space that could be repurposed in the future.

Home garden office ideas

As you can see, there are many things to consider when planning your pre-built garden office. We hope that you are finding inspiration right here at Kennedy Garden Retreats.  You will probably be bursting with garden office interior ideas but don’t forget the practicalities when you are evolving the look and layout of your smart garden office. A back garden office could be a major boon, but only if it works well for you.

Do you need planning permission for a garden office?

Most garden offices will not require planning permission. Garden office buildings can usually be constructed under your permitted development rights as they are considered to be outbuildings that are incidental to your enjoyment of your property. However, some garden office pods will require planning permission. This is because there are restrictions on the size and height of garden room that you can build under your permitted development rights. There are also restrictions on where it can be positioned on your property. Garden offices that feature toilets or kitchens may require planning permission as will those that will be used to host meetings. You will find detailed information regarding what you can and can’t do without planning consent on our planning permission page.

Do garden offices need building regulations approval?

If the floor area of the building is between 15 square metres and 30 square metres, you will not normally be required to apply for building regulations approval for your garden office. This is providing that the building contains NO sleeping accommodation and is either at least one metre from any boundary or is constructed substantially of non-combustible materials. For more detailed guidance, please visit our building regulations page.

How much does a garden office cost?

If you are looking to buy a garden office, the cost of your project will depend on the size and quality of your building. Kennedy Garden Retreats are of the highest quality.
