Choosing the look of your garden offices or garden rooms is always down to tastes. In this post, we want to show you the different options available and how you can mix and match to suit your tastes.
Before we go any further, it’s worth pointing out that we will only use exterior materials that are going to last a very long time. Too many garden offices & garden rooms in Ireland use cheaper materials that won’t stand up to Irish weather conditions. We generally use hard-wearing materials such as fibre cement board, plastered exterior render, aluminum, or hard timbers such as cedar or larch.
Fibre Cement Board
Fibre Cement Board is the ideal facade for garden offices & garden rooms. It is durable and withstands any harsh weather conditions. It is extremely strong and will not bend or crack if any pressure is applied. Modern fibre cement boards come in dozens of colors making it an ideal choice for your garden room.
The shadow gaps between panels make architecturally appealing. This facade will surely stand out and make you fall in love with your garden room every time you see it!
Plastered cement is the exterior render of choice in Ireland and for good reason. It is extremely durable and with zero maintenance. We tend to use this a lot for our garden offices & garden rooms. When our customers are investing in their outside garden room, they want to know that this is going to last the same as their house. Sure, they can go with cheaper options but will they add value to their home & will they last more than a few years? The answer is usually known. If you are making the investment, then you want your garden room to look amazing & last the test of time.
Cement render is an ideal choice as it has been proven to be one of the most hard-wearing materials for hundreds of years. If it ain’t broke then why fix it?
Larch & Cedar timbers are a very popular choice for garden rooms & garden offices. They are hard-wearing (lasts 80-130 years) and very beautiful. They offer a natural look to your garden room that is hard to beat. We have created numerous larch cladded garden offices for our clients. Nowadays, we like to mix the larch with one of the other facades to offer a more contemporary look. Larch and cedar can be treated about once every 18 months which gives them a natural color. Some people prefer not to treat meaning that they turn a silver color over time.
