Top 5 Garden Building Designs 2022

Over the years we’ve seen design trends come and go, from traditional summerhouses and rustic timber studios to the recent rise of modern flat roof office pods. With summer looming around the corner and gardens springing to life, we wanted to highlight some of our most popular designs for 2022.

5 – The New, Modern Shed

Our 5th most popular design of the season is also our newest design to hit our shelves. The sleek, softwood Modern Shed has been particularly popular in 3m width x 2.5m depth with frosted glass sliding door and translucent stained walls.

The Modern Shed is available in both ribbed softwood and smooth cedar plank cladding. Although cedar is a popular option, the ribbed spruce has been the top choice this season for the sleek new storage solution. Have a go at customising the shed yourself with our 3D design tool.

4 – The Kubus Log Cabin

A firm favourite for some years now, the contemporary Kubus Log Cabin measuring 3m x 2.5m with a front of glazing and natural timber walls has continued to be a go-to design for 2022. The cabin features a double door with two fixed windows on either side to help light flood in without compromising on wall space for shelving and desks.

3 – The Midi

With ever-increasing popularity, the Midi garden office is another 2.5m high flat roof office that provides a comfortable space for working from home. The Midi features double doors that can be opened in summer to create an indoor-outdoor space and two narrow, ventilated windows to help fill the office with light.

Measuring 3m x 1.8m, the Midi provides plenty of space for a desk or two without compromising on garden space.

2 – The Linea

Part of our luxury range of garden buildings, the Linea, specifically 3m x 2.5m has seen a recent surge in popularity. The Linea benefits from no roof overhang and uses horizontal ribbed larch cladding for style and durability.

A hot pick this year has been the triple desk-height window that allows for light, ventilation and a view of the garden from your office desk.

1 – The Mini Office

Most designs have come and gone, but one that has stuck for over a decade and continues to be our most popular garden building design is the Mini Office One 1.8m x 2.4m. The Mini Office with three narrow fixed windows and a single door on the narrow end has become a favourite for its convenient size, stylish glazing and striking colours.

Insulated to the roof and floor and neatly tucked into the corner of the garden the Mini Office makes for the ideal home office for one, without compromising on looks!

What our customers say...

“ Very happy with the quality of the product and workmanship. Polite, happy and confident installation team, a good job well done.”

Matthew Turner - Wiltshire County Council

“I would like to say how pleased we are with everything ... the team that assembled the Cabin were excellent and an extremely nice group of men.”

Mrs Cosier - Hampshire

“Thank you all for your help with the summerhouse. We love it! The boys were lovely to have around and we were so pleased to have them do the build. They are a credit to Garden Affairs. A bonus for me is that they don’t swear on site! It did get hilarious at one point with me doing yoga and them singing along to George Ezra!”

Ms Newell - Bath

“Amazing service! Fabulous team, superb workmanship and a pleasure to work with. I have already recommended you!”

Mrs Edwards - Bicester

“Very pleased with end product. Great bunch of lads who worked hard come rain & shine - shall send pictures when complete. Thanks!”

Mr Salton - Essex
