Customer Story - Amy's Insulated Garden Room

Waltons insulated garden room offers the perfect solution for those looking to extend their home into the garden. Whether you need a personal gym, home office or simply additional living space for the whole family to enjoy.

Like many of us in the UK, Amy has found a way to adapt her home to create space and entertainment for the whole family. We spotted Amy’s photos on her Instagram account @ourhaxbyhome and we had a chat with her to find out more about her garden room.

From inspiration to installation, Amy has told us how she transformed her 4m x 3m Insulated Garden Room into the ultimate garden retreat. A place in which she and her family can have fun and make memories all year round!

Choosing the right garden room

What made you decide the 4m x 3m insulated garden room would be the perfect choice?

The size was perfect for the space we had, and we liked the fact that we could customise the design.

Garden room installation

Amy prepared the space perfectly by installing a firm and level base for her new garden building to sit on. Power was installed using underground cabling, which is not only a practical option, but it also gives the finished garden room a refined look.

Customising and decorating the garden room

We love the cream and dark grey paint you've chosen for the exterior. How else did you customise your garden room?

We opted to take out a couple of the windows so that we could really make the most of the space inside - the process of customisation was really easy too which we were really surprised about. Waltons were really accommodating.

We noticed you’ve installed rustic wood panelling, a bar and darts board inside your garden room. What was your inspiration when it came to decorating?

The space has been heavily influenced by my husband’s love of music. But we also wanted a traditional pub-type feel. We’re really happy with how the two have combined.

The finished result

What would you say is the main use of your garden room? 

My husband uses the room for practising guitar (the fact it’s insulated means this doesn’t annoy the neighbours too much).

We have also enjoyed time in the space as a family listening to music and playing on the arcade. The kids have used it as a hang-out. We had a Hawaiian party in the garden room for my daughter’s birthday. And obviously the grown ups have enjoyed a few gin’s in there as well!

We are so happy with the space. The whole process from ordering to installation was seamless and it’s given us a really valuable addition to the house for the whole family.
