Over time, families naturally grow and change. In many cases, that means that they wind up needing more space than their current home offers. Unfortunately, adding a loft extension isn't always possible. In situations like these, garden buildings are a viable alternative. These freestanding outdoor buildings can be used for everything from hosting guests to working at home or providing a place for children to play. Garden buildings come in many different styles, which can make choosing one a little bit challenging.

To find the perfect building for your outdoor space, try using these tips from

Evaluate your finances – Figure out how much money you can afford to spend on your new building before you begin shopping.

Decide how you want to use the building – Is your new garden building going to act as a home office or will it be used for entertainment? Once you figure out how the building will be used, you can then choose a style that is well suited to your needs. For instance, if you are creating a play area for young children, going with a summerhouse is a great option. On the other hand, if you are creating an outdoor guest room, one of our log cabins would be an excellent choice.

Figure out which style you prefer – These buildings are available in a variety of different styles. That means that you should be able to find one that is a good fit for your own personal taste. Some people prefer a modern look while others prefer structures that have a little bit more of a vintage feel.

Determine how much space you have available – Measure your garden carefully to determine how large the building can be. When you find a model that you like, try marking out its dimensions on the ground so that you can see how well it will fit in your space before you buy it.
