Creating an entertainment space in your garden

Creating an entertainment space in your garden

26 March 2024

With the unpredictability of the weather here in the UK, it can be difficult to indulge in al fresco entertaining or dining all year round. But with a wooden summerhouse, you can have shelter or shade whenever you need it.

For years, interior design shows have emphasised bringing the outside in but the shift has occurred, particularly since the pandemic, towards extending the inside of your home to the outside, increasing your living space and the potential of your home. At Sutton Sheds, we manufacture wooden summerhouses in Lincolnshire that are the perfect addition to any outside space and that can serve as multifunctional entertainment rooms. Here are our top ideas for using a timber summerhouse in your garden.

Using a summerhouse as a dining room

Outdoor dining doesn’t have to be confined to the summer months with a wooden summerhouse. Transform your summerhouse into a garden room for socialising over dinner or lunch and you can entertain friends while enjoying views of your garden, shaded from the summer sun yet sheltered from the winter winds and rain. Also perfect for those who don’t like the thought of creepy crawlies sharing your meal!

Using a summerhouse as a garden lounge

There’s nothing lovelier than sharing an evening with friends just chatting and catching up. Pop some comfortable seating and a coffee table in your summerhouse and you have the perfect garden lounge for relaxing come rain or shine.

Using a summerhouse as a games room

Do you enjoy playing cards? Board games? Or even computer games where friends can join you? A wooden summerhouse makes the perfect games room offering a multipurpose space that is fully adaptable whatever your game of choice. Add a pool table and a wall-mounted TV, or a dart board and card table, and of you go.

Using a summerhouse as a teenage den

Do your teenagers need to socialise but you’d prefer them to be somewhere that’s a little close to home? Or would you just like them to have somewhere to go that’s not in the house? A dedicated space in a summerhouse is the perfect chillout place for them to relax, study or just get away from the adults and will give them a sense of independence while keeping them close to home.

Other ways to use your wooden summerhouse

Of course, your summerhouse will make a great outdoor bar or home cinema but it can also be used for so much more than entertaining. Do you need a home office or a gym/fitness area or an artist’s studio or a children’s playroom? Or do you run a small business from home and need somewhere to welcome clients? The possibilities are endless and with a little bit of imagination you can easily make your dreams a reality.
