Have you found the summerhouse of your dreams? Are you going for a standard model or a bespoke design?  When you decide to invest in a garden building, there are many things you should consider, in order to achieve the result you were looking for. The most important, of course, is to decide how you are going to use the summerhouse – as a she shed, a home office or a lounge for your family and friends. You should also pay attention to different aspects of sizing, colour and the roof type. Keep reading our advice for buying a summerhouse to find out more!

Size and shape

First of all, when choosing a summer house for your garden, you must consider the size of the garden area where you want to erect your summer house. When you know where exactly you want to place the summerhouse, you can choose one that would fit your garden perfectly both regarding the size and shape. Remember that the right garden building can perfectly complement your garden’s theme!

Colour and type of roof

After the right size and shape have been chosen, select the colour and the roof type. When choosing the right colour, you can either just decide on your favourite one or match the colour of the summerhouse to the colour palette of your garden. Regarding the roof types – choose between the classic apex or pyramid roof, or go for a modern look with the asymmetric roof!

Thickness of walls

Another important aspect to consider is the thickness of timber walls. The standard wall thickness varies between 28mm and 44 mm. The thicker the timber walls you choose for your garden building are, the more solid your garden building will be; therefore, you will be able to enjoy it all year around!

Doors and windows

Doors and windows can affect the functionality and appearance of your summerhouse. Consider what type of windows and doors would you like to have, and if they can provide the security you need. You might want to consider having sliding glass walls to fully enjoy the view of your garden!
