Bridge Garden Rooms
Bridge Garden Rooms boasts one of the largest portfolios of garden room designs perfect for art and craft studios. While these designs include popular features, they’re essentially a starting point for a customised design. The Bridge Garden Rooms team is ready to collaborate with you, tailoring the size, layout, and features to meet your unique needs.
Each design by Bridge Garden Rooms stands out as an ideal choice for an art or craft studio. For those looking for a compact building, there’s an array of sleek pod designs. For instance, the Chad Pod, with its compact 2m x 2m footprint, nestles comfortably into even the smallest gardens. Another noteworthy design, the Grisedale Tarn pod, features a wrap-around window at desk height, offering a panoramic view of your garden as you work. Bridge Garden Rooms also design and build much larger studios which can accommodate large canvases. If you require extra height in your studio space, Bridge offers contemporary pitched roof designs.
From the images above, it’s evident that Bridge Garden Rooms presents numerous options to incorporate covered outdoor areas alongside their fully insulated garden art studios. These sheltered areas enhance the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that garden studios offer.
All designs from Bridge Garden Rooms work with Permitted Development rules. If planning approval is required, the Bridge Garden Rooms team is able to assist with the necessary drawings and specifications, ensuring a smooth application process.
Bridge Garden Rooms utilises Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for the core construction of their garden art studios. Complemented by interior and exterior finishes, along with double-glazed doors and windows, the studios boast a multi-layered design. This ensures a well-insulated space suitable for year-round work, guaranteeing that your materials remain in optimum conditions.
Bridge Garden Rooms provides a comprehensive electrical specification, including LED downlights recessed into the ceiling, multiple power points, and a consumer unit. As evident from the images, exterior lighting is pivotal in enhancing the indoor-outdoor ambience that Bridge Garden Rooms promotes.
Operating across the UK, Bridge Garden Rooms project manages the installation process, beginning with the foundation system and progressing to the main build. When it’s time for the final electrical connection between the garden studio’s consumer unit and your home, you have choices. Either engage a local electrician to handle the connection or obtain a separate quote from the Bridge team.

Examples of Bridge Garden Rooms exterior finishes
Externally, Bridge Garden Rooms offers a palette of low-maintenance finishes chosen for longevity. Their standard cladding finish is Western Red Cedar, chosen for its aesthetic charm and natural resistance to rot and fungal decay. However, if you want to create a different look or aim to maximise your budget, Bridge Garden Rooms offers alternative durable timber finishes like Siberian Larch, Thermowood, or treated Redwood.
For those seeking a zero-maintenance cladding finish, Bridge Garden Rooms provides composite cladding options. These boards are available in various colours and profiles, including a stylish slatted cladding design.
These durable cladding choices are paired with uPVC doors and windows. The SIP’s roof structure features a powder-coated metal exterior layer, ensuring that is virtually maintenance-free.
As highlighted in the accompanying images, Bridge Garden Rooms can enhance their garden studio buildings with covered outdoor areas. Whether it’s running along the front elevation to deliver a veranda-esque detail or situated beside the studio to offer a sheltered seating spot, they’ve got it covered! Bridge Garden Rooms integrates exterior lighting into their designs, extending the usability of the space well into the evening.
Examples of Bridge Garden Rooms interior finishes
Bridge Garden Rooms offers walls and ceilings that are plasterboarded and skimmed, prepared for the paint finish of your choice. Paired with durable laminate flooring, this combination delivers a modern ambience, like you’d find in a newly built house. For those who prefer a panelled appearance, Bridge Garden Rooms also provides 12mm thick MDF panelling.
As seen in various images, Bridge Garden Rooms offer a broad selection of uPVC doors and window styles. These choices ensure a workspace bathed in natural light. Notable options include desk-height windows and doors that fully retract, seamlessly merging the room with the garden.
Thanks to the Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) core structure combined with a multi-layered design, the room is comfortable for year-round use. To ensure warmth during the chillier days, Bridge Garden Rooms can integrate your preferred heating system, be it a slimline electric heater, underfloor heating, or air conditioning.
