Transforming A Garden Building Into A Creative Space

For those with a passion for creative arts, be it painting, sculpting, writing or something else, having a space in which ideas can be nurtured is essential. However, this can be somewhat challenging to achieve within a shared space such as the home. Noise, distractions and space restrictions often prevent artists from fully immersing themselves in their work.

If this sounds familiar, it may be time to consider upgrading your space. In the following article, we’ll outline how to create a space for your art in a garden building, separating your creative passion from day-to-day living and providing a place for inspiration and creativity to flourish.


Before we dive into the space itself, it is crucial to consider the physical positioning of the garden building. Whether it is an apex shed, or a larger garden room, the location can have a real impact on the way it feels to create within the space.

When deciding on the location of your garden building, it is worth considering the creative work you will be doing. For example, if you depend on good natural light, facing the windows or doorways towards the sun is a good idea. If your work serves as a means of escaping the real world, why not tuck your summerhouse or shed into a corner, surrounded by flowers and plants?

Choosing A Timber Garden Building

When choosing the building itself, you’ll need to consider a few main factors, including the positioning mentioned above. How much space will you require whilst working? If a smaller space is okay, there are a multitude of ways in which a traditional shed can be transformed. However, if you require a space with room to experiment, housing supplies, equipment and more, a larger garden room or summerhouse would be much more fitting.

Larger summerhouses and garden rooms also provide a much greater amount of light due to their spacious design and larger windows.

Make It Your Own

As is the case with all creative outputs, working from a place of truth is essential. Your creative space or studio should feel as if it reflects your personality, allowing you to immerse yourself in your art and produce great work.

Of course, this is different for everyone and, as an artist, you’ll understand what it is that ignites your passion. Maybe a few books or paintings are what the space needs to provide inspiration. Or, perhaps a more minimal space is what you need, allowing your work to take centre stage. No matter how you approach the interior design of your creative space, making it your own is key.

With this in mind, choosing a timber building that has enough space for your creative supplies, seating and other necessities is essential.
