What optional extras can add to the cost?
Customisation is key when it comes down to your garden room. Garden Rooms 365 offer various styling extras that could make your dream garden room a reality. The following areas could impact the price of your garden room:
The basic starting cost of a garden room generally gives you a basic structure of walls, door, windows and a roof. In the event that you wish to add some elements of interior decoration to the room, it would have an impact on the pricing. This interior decoration work includes customising paint colours, tiles, adding furniture etc.
The basic price of the garden room can give you insulation, however if you need a heating feature added to the room, that will include an extra cost. You can get an option to upgrade to a heating feature in the beginning as well so before you choose a plan you can make an informed decision.
If you want data cables installed in your garden room to allow internet access and networking then that will also add to the garden room costs. Most companies do not offer this as part of their basic pricing and charge extra for it.
A basic garden room that you get installed generally is very low tech. It generally has electrical wiring done and power outlets installed but that is about it. If you need any technological advancements added to this room, then that will also add the ultimate cost of your garden room.
Shower and toilet
The cost of a garden room with shower and toilet would obviously be more than the starting price that you are quoted. This is a special customisation that is only done based on the client’s request. The size of the bathroom and shower area would be another factor impacting the price.
If you need lights installed on the exterior of your garden office or building then this added extra will cost you more. Different types of lights and the number of lights you get installed will also change the final cost of the garden building.
If you want the noise generated inside the garden room to stay inside and you want to stay away from the noise outside, you may want to soundproof it. Soundproofing is an additional customisation that would increase the cost of the room.
Type of garden room impacts prices
There are different types of garden rooms that you can get installed. Which type of room you require and what customisations go into also play a major role in the pricing of the rooms. A truly bespoke garden room can have a lot of unique additions. However, make sure you have proper planning permission for the type of room you need. Below are some of the types of rooms you can get:
Garden Room Bar

Garden Room Sauna
