Brick Slips in Garden Rooms

Keep The Outside-Inside Balance with Brick Slips in Your Garden Room

In recent years, the concept of blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living spaces has gained immense popularity. Homeowners are increasingly seeking innovative ways to create a seamless transition from their homes to their gardens, and that has worked both ways, with the rise of an extra separate room created in the garden.

The Rise of Garden Rooms

Garden rooms have become more than just a trend; they are a lifestyle choice for those who appreciate the beauty of nature and seek a tranquil retreat within the comforts of their homes. Whether used as an office, a gym, a lounge, or a home bar, garden rooms provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the home itself.

Garden Room Decor

You can use whatever you'd like on the walls, just plain old paint or wallpaper, timber cladding, 'live' walls, or of course brick slips.

You need to consider a few things in what choices you make:

The overall style/feel of the room that you want to achieve - your colours, textures and materials need to fit with the overall vibe that you're looking to create.

The usage of the room - if you're going to be using your garden room as an office - you may want a background wall to show off on video calls, as a bar you may want walls to match the bar you create, or if it's a children's playroom even you need appropriate colours.

External Cladding

Not only can you use brick slips on the internal of your garden room, but you can tie both sides together by using them externally.

As brick slips are just thinner slices of full bricks, they are designed for the rigours of external use. Using them on the outside will add a greater sense of permanence and structure to your building- more home, less shed.

Advantages of Using Brick Slips in Garden Rooms

  1. Aesthetic Appeal:

    • Brick slips bring a timeless and rustic aesthetic to garden rooms, adding warmth and character to the space.

    • The varied colour options allow for customization, allowing you to choose a style that complements their existing interior design, with the blend of brick slips (or blends), bond pattern, and mortar choice.

  2. Seamless Transition:

    • The use of brick slips creates a visual continuity between the interior and exterior of the garden room, fostering a seamless transition between the two spaces.

    • This connection to the outdoors promotes a sense of harmony, making the garden room feel like a natural extension of the home, and a more permanent fixture.

  3. Texture and Depth:

    • The three-dimensional texture of brick slips adds depth and visual interest to the walls, breaking away from the monotony of flat surfaces.

    • This tactile quality not only enhances the aesthetics but also creates a cosy and inviting atmosphere within the garden room.

  4. Durability and Low Maintenance:

    • Brick slips are durable and resistant to wear, ensuring that the garden room retains its charm for years to come.

    • Unlike traditional brick walls, brick slips require minimal maintenance, making them a practical and long-lasting solution for indoor-outdoor living spaces.

Incorporating brick slips into garden rooms is a design choice that goes beyond mere aesthetics; it is a lifestyle enhancement. The ability to effortlessly bring the outside inside creates a living experience that is both refreshing and unique. Whether you're seeking a cosy reading nook or a functional workspace, the use of brick slips can turn your garden room into a haven of comfort and style, where the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors beautifully dissolve. Embrace the beauty of nature within the confines of your home with the transformative power of brick slips in your garden room.
