What’s the Difference Between a Garden Room and a Garden Annexe?

Confused about garden rooms and annexes?

If you’ve been considering revamping your garden and making more of your outdoor space, you may have come across a wide variety of search results that relate to garden rooms and garden annexes and wonder – what is the difference? Let’s take a look at the difference between a garden room and a garden annexe and how to choose which outdoor room is best for your space.

Custom Garden Annexe

We like to think of garden annexes as a ‘home within a home’ – you’re investing in building a space in your garden that’s essentially its own little house. The key here is that annexes are self-contained – they’re packed with all of the necessities you’d expect to find in the main house. Things like a fully operational kitchen, a nice comfy living room with plenty of space, and a shower room. If you’re looking to invest in an additional living space (there’s a reason they’re often called ‘granny annexe’) this is the best use of your space and investment.

Additionally, with an annexe, you’ve got options – so many options! A garden annexe isn’t a ‘one-size-fits-none’ case. Want something modern? No problem. Rustic/vintage more your cup of tea? Sounds good to us! At Custom Garden Rooms, we’re all about tailoring what you want your annexe to look like vs what everyone else has, so keep that in mind when looking at the pictures!

Custom Garden Rooms

Bespoke garden rooms are similar to an annexe, but the difference is that garden rooms aren’t designed for you to live in but more to make better use of your outdoor space and make your own area that support what matters to you most. Whether you want a dedicated gym area to workout in (or train paying customers), an outdoor home office, relaxing sauna, studio to get to creative in – the possibilities really are endless. Check out our online Gallery for more inspiration.

Unlike other garden room developers, ours are completely custom and are designed and built to your space. We don’t provide the same garden room for all clients, we look at your use, the space in which it will be built, your likes and dislikes, and create your space, your way. If your space is limited, we also offer garden pods. Our Mini garden room is available in three sizes and is ideal for smaller outdoor spaces.

When it comes to choosing whether you need a custom garden room or annexe, it’s all about thinking of your needs. Once you have decided why you want an outdoor living space and know what it will be used for, next it’s about where it will be built. From there, we can help you choose the best design style for your garden room or, if you need an annexe, we’ll get cracking helping you design your area.
