Home office and playroom project in Milton Keynes
Location: Milton Keynes
Home Office and Playroom Project Information
Like many people in Milton Keynes, our clients were in need of more space and were looking for a simple way to extend their property. They were looking to create a home office and playroom outside and away from the main house so contacted us to see if we were able to help. Unaware of the simplicity of creating such an outbuilding we explained to them that under permitted development rights that they were able to build a home office and/or playroom without planning permission.
In order to improve their garden area and have a contemporary outbuilding which will overlook the garden area and the main house we designed a modern style room for them. The clients decided upon cedar cladding and an anthracite grey uPVC bi-fold door with a stunning full length window to match the style.
The room can obviously be multi-purpose and used as a garden room, summer dining/entertaining area, playroom/games room, home office, gym, art studio, music room or even be a home for a relaxation area including a sauna, steam room or hot-tub!
Our clients wanted to bring their property in Milton Keynes up-to-date and along with the other work that is to be carried out on the home they will definitely succeed in this.
The new home office and playroom features the cedar cladding for a modern look but is also in-keeping with a traditional garden environment. It is fully insulated and plastered and also has the luxury of under-floor heating and an electricity supply; therefore it can be used at any time of the day and indeed year. The quality of the building means that it will be used all of the time and whilst it is a much needed extension of the house it is an aesthetically pleasing feature that will last for many years.
There are plenty of benefits to the family in having this new addition to the home office and playroom in Milton Keynes. These include not only the provision of more space and storage but also that feeling of escaping from the main building area. It looks fantastic in the garden and of course has a very on-trend contemporary look. This freestanding room gives the best of both worlds, fully insulated and with electricity, it’s like having a second home in your garden but without the disruption of an extension or the need for planning permission. It’s also completed in the fraction of the build time!
Bi-folding doors allow the flexibility of keeping things warm in the winter by using the one section or opening the home office and playroom right up to the garden in the summer for that alfresco feel. They also provide the added benefit of visibility from the main house and garden so if being used as a playroom/games room you are able to keep an un-intrusive eye on your children. If you are a fan of privacy or are using the building in the evening and it is well lit, we can offer discreet pull down blinds that fit at the top of the window pane.
The under-floor heating has been installed to provide warmth in the cooler months and with a tiled easy to clean floor that rugs can be placed upon the clients have added flexibility and are able to change the flooring to suit their needs.
Whilst having the idea in mind of the overall look for our new garden building we were struggling to find a company that could provide all products and carry out all aspects of the work. When we stumbled across DGB we were relieved that they shared our vision and even suggested the window which I think improves the lighting inside and overall look. I am so pleased with the quality of work and the timescale of the project. This really has enhanced both our garden and our house. All of our friends and family can now enjoy this with us too.

This flexibility of an additional home office and playroom has changed the lifestyle of the clients as they are now able to enjoy the garden much more whilst escaping the sometimes hectic kitchen/dining area. It has also added value to the property and given the clients the much needed additional space in the main building. Additional comments
