With the London housing crisis showing no signs of subsiding, a growing number of the city's homeowners are dismissing the high cost of relocation in favour of a “garden room” which can provide that all-important additional living space.
From huts that offer a useful office area to garden studios that house an outdoor gym, a garden building is typically much cheaper and far less disruptive to install than an alternative option, such as a loft conversion. And with a new report stating 60% of the city's residents would prefer to improve their current property than take on board the expense of a costly move, it's no wonder garden rooms have become such a sought-after feature for the 21st century homeowner.
Whether you're seeking an ultra-modern glass box conservatory which bathes in natural light or an open-plan kitchen-diner orangery, there has never been a greater variety of garden rooms on the market. This said, fewer offer the flexibility and versatility of a louvered roof patio canopy, such as our award-winning Outdoor Living Pod shown below.
Boasting a rotating aluminium louvered roof, the Outdoor Living Pod is an innovative patio canopy system that provides optimum sun protection whilst eliminating glare so you can make full use of your terrace 365 days a year.
Furthermore, the louvered roof patio canopy is completely waterproof, thanks to an invisible guttering system hidden within the framework, so you can use your Outdoor Living Pod to its full potential throughout all four seasons, irrespective of the weather.
Additional accessories such as integrated screens, sleek led strip lighting and infra-red radiant heaters create the ideal environment for relaxing, socialising and leisure activities. For instance, this Pod we installed in London earlier this year will double up as an outdoor gym, forming the perfect all-weather workout space.
To view our innovative Pod in action, take a look at our brand new product video below or visit our Houzz profile to see our latest installations.
