Examples of Miniature Manors exterior finishes

Miniature Manors provides an extensive selection of exterior cladding options and profiles, enabling clients to craft a distinctive appearance for their garden room. For those who envision a timber finish, Miniature Manors offers various durable options, including Redwood and Western Red Cedar, known for their low maintenance requirements.

For clients seeking a maintenance-free solution that retains its aesthetic appeal over the long term, Miniature Manors offers composite cladding choices. These include composite wood finishes and cement fibre boards, available in a range of colours and profiles, including on-trend slatted designs.

Miniature Manors is happy to integrate clients’ ideas into their designs. Over the years, this has included replicating design details from the clients’ main house onto the garden room’s exterior or incorporating a living wall into a garden office design.

In their mono-pitched designs, Miniature Manors can incorporate a living roof covering, providing year-round interest and establishing a valuable natural ecosystem on the roof.

For pitched roof designs, Miniature Manors offers a variety of tiling options. The photos above showcase a hipped roof design finished with clay tiles, illustrating Miniature Manors’ attention to detail in crafting their pitched roofs.

Examples of Miniature Manors interior finishes

Miniature Manors ensures that their garden rooms are completed to a high standard internally, comparable to that of a newly built house. The walls and ceiling are meticulously plastered and decorated, complemented by durable laminate or engineered wood flooring. This combination results in a modern and inviting room where natural light bounces around the room, as depicted in these photographs.

For those looking for a minimalist, contemporary aesthetic, Miniature Manors also offers interiors crafted from Birch plywood. Each board is carefully detailed with shadow gap detailing, lending a distinctive and unique appearance to the room.

During the design phase, Miniature Manors collaborates closely with clients to determine the optimal layout of doors and windows, ensuring they meet your specific requirements. They provide a choice between aluminium-framed and uPVC options.

The electrical specification is another area where Miniature Manors exhibits flexibility, tailoring it to how you intend to use your room. This includes both interior and exterior lighting, as well as a hardwired internet connection for reliable Wi-Fi connectivity. Additionally, Miniature Manors offers a range of heating solutions, including air conditioning, to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year.

Miniature Manors’ turnkey service includes the final electrical connection between the garden room and your house. This comprehensive approach sets them apart from many competitors, who often require clients to arrange this aspect of the project with another company.
